ok let me tell you about this game because gosh darn donuts do i love this game. this game is my childhood i would play this for hours after school. after a while however, i broke the game and hadn't really done anything about it ever since. i bought the game on steam and boy, am i glad i did. i had just a nostalgic feeling playing this and it got a lot more addicting than how it was when i was nine.
anyway, the game is amazingly fun. if you love awesome music, cool characters, groovy outfits and interesting plot. then please, play this rhythmic game. simple commands such as 'hey' and 'chu' make it simple yet hard, when it comes to quicker, more sohpisticated beats. not only is the music awesome but it's really super catchy!! i even downloaded some of the ost because, damn, i would listen to this all day.
not to mention michael fricking jackson as space michael. if you don't think that's cool then i'll just forget your entire existence. also the villains - the rhythm rogues - are really cool and cute. i also love all of ulala's outfits and you unlock costumes through playing story mode and other modes. god damn i just love this game and it sucks because i doubt they'll ever make a part 3, it's also very underrated which sucks even more.
this game is also fricking hilarious??? like, some of the different sounds in the commands or different character animations might put you off while you are trying to mirror so yeah, be careful of that and try keep your laughter in if you can, otherwise your rating goes poop. the graphics are pretty damn nice too tbh. especially in full screen.
you can also play it in japanese!? well hot diggity jam. because boy, let me tell you, do i love akira ishida. this motherhubber voices main antagonist purge or known as 'pagi' in the japanese version, and wowie, gotta love him. but besides him, the japanese is also very fun to play in! so i'd reccommend giving that ago if you feel like it.
but there is a lot of bad with this game, and i'm not talking about gameplay or plot... i'm talking about the actually game itself. this is very difficult to play with the keyboard and it took me forever to figure out how to get the controller working and to also get the configurations to save. i had to create some keys and stuff in the registry editor before i could even save the configs let alone get my ps3 controller to work. also there aren't r1 and l2 keys??? what the heck??? how am i supposed to use the cheat code lmao.
also sometimes the syncing of the music and commands don't match which messes up the whole thing??? like i could be doing so well and then all of a sudden the voices are out of time and then you go to repeat the moves as best as you can but it doesn't work because of the crappy sync??? that's why you gotta crank that vsync because if you don't, then you are going to struggle. also triple buffering but i couldn't get that to work but you don't really need it since the sync doesn't crap out as much after changing vsync.
but yeah, this game is amazing. please play it and maybe try fix those problems so you play the game the right way and have lots of fun!!!
