There are many mysterious and interesting races for you to discover including: Elves, Dwarves, Hobbits, Orcs, Trolls, Ents, Urukai, wizards, and Smeagal, your best friend. Explore grand environments such as Smeagal's home. Smeagal's island deep under the mountains and of course the lovely Venice Beach California. This game hosts a variety of features such as : Smeagal. If you love middle earth I would implore you to discover the mystery of this great game. I give it a Smeagal/10.

I have played this game in every incarnation, and while it's nice that this one has the Japanese audio, the rhythm is a little buggy. I could play most of this game blindfolded so I can definitely see what people are talking about with some of the button timing being off. I'm still planning on unlocking all the costumes and saving the universe though.

One of the most original games that I've played in a long time! Fun, colorful and musically inclined. It would be a miracle if they could bring us Space Channel 5: Part 1.

The game ignores buttons a lot of the time, can't get past level 1 due to failing the final boss battle. Addictive game but fustrating when it doesn't fully function

I am a HUGE fan of the Playstation 2 version of Space Channel 5: Part 2, but this port is absolutely riddled with bugs.

In just a few hours of playing it, I've encountered:

* A bug where it only played in Japanese. The game has a "customization" file that you can run when you start the game--I have to load that every time I play the game and toggle English-->Japanese-->English to get it to load in English.

* The audio settings seem to determine which of my two monitors it loads on. What?!

* SEVERE input lag on controllers. This thing *hates* my Xbox controller. I have no idea why.

* I had a lot more luck using the keyboard, but come on. It's a keyboard. That's not how I want to experience this game. And besides, even that gives me problems, though I don't know if it's lagging or if I just suck at using the keyboard.

This is a wonderful, fun, hilarious game, but this isn't the best version.

I played this on the dreamcast when it came out and wanted to relive all that joy.
Sadly this is not the American version. This is not clear in its description.

I really like this game, and I have very fond memories with Part 1 as well. I don't even mind the fact that the dialogue is in Japanese. What I do mind, though, is that the keyboard controls don't work, and you can't change them. In the very first level of this game, I couldn't get Ulala to do more than one of any action - up or down or chu. No matter how many times I pressed the corresponding keys, she would either stay still or there would be a big delay. I really do like this game, but I just can't recommend it because I can't play it, and I kind of doubt these issues will be fixed any time soon. It seems that others have similar issues.

Almost impossible to beat, but still absolutely awesome :D Space Channel series is one of my all-time favorite rhytmn games, it's just delightfully whacky and fun to listen to! Space Channel Part 1 needs a Steam release too though, it's slightly better for beginners.

For future reference for myself, Auto-Play with X360 controller: Hold RT+RB+LT+LB then press B, Y, X

Chu, chu.

Holy crap. Holy crap. Holy crap. This game is incredible. This is Parappa the Rapper on Steroids. This game is the absolute GREATEST GAME EVER CONCIEVED.

I had no idea what to expect from this game. I knew it was a rhythm game, but that's all I knew. Let me break down my experience so far with the game for anyone curious.

I started off on a space station, reporting for space news on space channel 5. Some space rogues had taken the station over and were forcing all the space citizens to space dance. It was my space job to space rescue them all. I blasted all the space minions with the power of my funky-fresh, 80's blacksploitation soundtrack moves and finished the first level off by out-singing three super-powered space karaoke robots.

By this point I can barely contain myself, I am almost at the point of involuntarily emptying my bowels from the sheer force of my own maniacal laughter. If you're not on board yet then you have terrible taste and should reconsider your life choices.

The next level opened with the space mayor, who bares a striking resemblance to Doctor Robotnik, being space-kidnapped by the rhythm rogues. It was once again up to me and my funky newsteam to go and rescue him. The ground troop leader took him to Space Seaworld, where mutated space plants had captured a musical class of primary school kids. I rescued the children flawlessly, before moving on to the space-boss. Oh no! My reporter protagonist, aptly named "Ulala" has been tied up in the tentacles of the slimy space pirhana plant. I struggle to battle the plant as my avatar makes hilariously tasteless jokes about being sexually aroused, but emerge victorious! Once again destroying my enemies with the power of space dance just after beating a rival network's reporter in a space electric guitar battle. We rescue the space president who proceeds to warm our hearts with a beautiful solo that would touch the hearts of even the most jaded of gamers, before being kidnapped once again. Dude really needs better bodyguards.

Our news team doesnt have to research for long before we have a hot new lead, but oh no! The space police and their highest ranking officer, Cyote Ugly in Space, is trying to stop us! Her giant, breast-shaped space cruiser is launching mammary missiles at us! Ulala and her trusty sidekick manage to beat her in a space drum battle, but no! it was a trap all along, orchestrated by the head of the space baddies! We've got to get back to Space Station 5 and rescue Space channel 5's commanding officer, Space Michael Jackson. No, I'm not even kidding. You have to rescue Space Michael F*cking Jackson with the power of dance.

I have to stop for now, my chest hurts too much to go on.

11/10.

If you like rhythm games or Japanese Anime, it's worth a go. Colorful, imaginative, cheesy, and challenging.

[Help With the Configuration:]
When you play, Steam lets you choose or configure. Configure doesn't save changes.
To configure the game (resolution, full screen, and more):
- Right Click Game > Choose Properties > Local Files Tab > Browse Local Files
- Copy config.ini to My Documents\Sega\Space Channel 5 Part 2
- Edit config.ini with notepad or a text editor
Full_Screen=1 for Full Screen
Resolution= 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4 (These are the 5 Rez choices in Steam's SC5P2 Config)
Volume Numbers Represent 0-100 Percentages
You're On Your Own messing with the controls :p

There is a section of the game where you destroy a giant robot by making Michael Jackson go "HOO!"

I don't need to say anything else...

This game is freakin' hillarious. It's just sOOOooOO Cheezy.

A bit hard at first, because you don't get any visual aids like most of those rythm games, you really need to get the timing right off the rythm of the beat.
