Retro/Grade reviews and comments

Excellent Musical Arcade (rhythm game). A Decent muse. Accompaniment, but some compositions begin to annoy. The Game is motley colors, why the eyes quickly get tired-it's a minus. In General, the game can be put 7-7.5/10

Love this game so much! The music is awesome, controls are very smooth. What else do you need for a rhythm game? :D Challenges mode is the best IMO, it's awesome how difficulty slowly increases from very easy to hardcore.

A non-standard approach to time, play at a time ago, trying to "suck" their shots in accordance with the shots of the normal flow of time, on N the time ahead. In Short, Doc's leg will break:D 10 Doctors of Browns out of 10.

This is the game that I wanted to talk about, which happens very rarely. A Game that transforms your controller into a sequencer of different sounds. To The second level, I had the full impression that I was recreating the music playing in this masterpiece on my controller. Not Transferable, fresh, interesting! One wish. It would be Desirable, that playing music more depended on action of the player. If I do not hit the button, then the music should not just give some strange interference, and to seize or stop.. This would have further plunged into the atmosphere and gave an even greater sense of control over what was happening. 10/10-The game is worth the attention and, especially, its money

I Put a negative rating only because of the price. At full cost (and it's like-no 249 rubles) to take it is not worth it. And now learn more about the pros and cons of the game. Pros: 1. Beautiful picture (Nice to play when eyes rejoice); 2. The Idea (movement back time in the game, as well as the ability to return reversing time); 3. Musical Component and Rhythm Mechanics (pleased, that exactly rhythm-part of the game is done at the proper level); 4. The Presence of small buns (many levels of difficulty and several modes of play, as well as the presence of top-boards, Achivok and cards of the Stima) 5. Quite tolerable in understanding tutorial. Cons: 1. Fast-eating (which should not match the game with this price) 2. Does not support the Russian language (it is not scary and the process of the game is hardly affected) 3. Too many flashes, flickering and movement (as a result-all this presses on the eyes and causes fatigue) 4. Price (main minus) Summing up, I can say that the game is not bad, it can sit for the sake of a beautiful image on the screen, a good soundtrack, but for a long time to sit neither physically nor morally for some reason do not want.
