Vocaloid is definitely one of the most interesting things you can find in the music world, and that's a big world. But when it comes to Vocaloids, the main and most popular one is Hatsune Miku. One of the first entirely digital pop-stars in the world, Miku has become a part of pop and technoculture. A digital singer that sings with a completely digital voice finds herself comfortable inside a video game. Here we'll talk about Hatsune Miku Project Diva F 2nd, a game released for the PS3 and PSVITA.
Rhythm games like Guitar Hero and Rock Band are really popular, but Hatsune Miku games are divergent and don’t even require any peripherals to pay. So, let’s talk about this game and see if it does justice to this digital diva.
About the game
Hatsune Miku Project Diva F 2nd is an interesting game in many ways, but there’s not much to talk about it if you’re looking for a story or a lot here. ¿While you play the game the background plays amazing music videos that are sometimes affected by your performance. Unlike many rhythm games, there’s no plot to follow here, and each individual song has its own, unique music video.
We mentioned that you don't need peripherals to play this game, aside from your PS3 controller or your PSVITA of course. But that doesn't mean the game's easy or that you won't feel as much as if you're following the rhythm as you would if you were playing with instrument-like controllers. The gameplay is incredibly fast-paced and can get to be really hard, so you'll need to practice a lot to finish some songs, let alone to get a perfect score.
In this game, you don't get a stripe where the notes will fall and you're trying to press the buttons on that line. Here the buttons you need to press will appear in all kinds of crazy formations around all the screen. Many times the really bright and colorful music videos playing in the background can be really distracting. You need a special kind of concentration to beat some of the toughest songs here.
There are a lot of things to unlock aside from songs in this game. YOu can unlock different costumes and objects. It’s great especially if you are a Miku fan, and there are a lot of other vocaloids here so this game has a lot of content to enjoy.
This is one of the fastest and craziest rhythm games around. The gameplay reminds us of a PS2 game called Guitaroo Man, but this one really takes it to a different level. The visuals are incredible, and since Miku is a digital idol in the real world, you could say that the game has hyper-realistic visuals.
The songs are varied and they can range from slow melodies to hyper fast-paced tracks. Even if you’re not a Hatsune Miku fan you’re going to love this game, and maybe it is a great starting point if you’re looking to get into Miku’s music.
- Great Visuals
