    Though, the visuals are interesting, the music is good and the gameplay is unique without being lame, it’s a bit repetitious and limited in what can really be done. The steep difficulty later in the game stops it from being a smashing success, but it's still a pretty nice title.
  2. It may be a bit too challenging for its own good. [Jan 2002, p.128]
  3. On a purely visceral level, the game is a blast.
  4. The game has no direction or purpose, and its one of the few games that seems so dull on the PlayStation 2.
  5. It may not have the cult personality of the "Dance Dance Revolution" series but it definitely has hooks that are capturing.
  6. It’s a refreshing change from the weirdness you’d find in a "PaRappa" or "Dance Dance Revolution." [Jan 2002, p.208]
  7. If you're interested in the art of music mixing, Frequency's Remix mode is a good introduction...As a game though, this note is a little flat.

    All you do is press buttons in sync with the screen while crappy dance music plays. The button presses aren't very related to the beats All you do is press buttons in sync with the screen while crappy dance music plays. The button presses aren't very related to the beats or rythm of the music. I could see the game appealing to someone who likes dance music a lot, and isn't normally into video games. But then, getting a dance mat and dance dance revolution would be a much better decision. Full Review »

    This game is crazy awesome. People looking for a new game to overcome boredom should definately pick this one up. I am hoping for a sequal.
