  1. 100
    This game is different, addictive, fun, and the multiplayer and remix modes ensures nearly infinite replay value.
  2. 100
    What’s so awesome is that you get to hear good music come together while playing an addictive game.
  3. It makes nice use of various special effects and never slows down, but those with epillepsy problems will probably want to stay away. However, if you're familiar with raves, you'll feel right at home.
  4. 90
    An amazingly good game. I haven't met anyone yet that hasn't been completely engrossed within five minutes of picking up the controller and going to town, especially when you factor in the multiplayer and remix modes.
  5. One of the most frustrating games I have ever played...but is also one of the most entertaining. If you don't have any patience, Frequency probably isn't for you.
  6. What makes Frequency really special is the way it sinks its hooks in and challenges players to outdo themselves just one more time.
  7. If you don't have the patience or your dedication level doesn't extend past that of the average mule, then you'll probably want to skip out on this game...here's yet another excellent title that'll probably be overlooked by 90% of the gamers out there.
  8. Frequency will grab a hold of your senses and won’t let go. The visuals are mind blowing and the audio is diverse and alive. This splash of sensual delight coupled with gameplay that becomes more addictive as you play puts Frequency on a higher plane than other games in the same class.
  9. 90
    With a four-player mode and user-created remixes, the replay value goes through the roof.
  10. Frequency friggin' rocks! As one of my friends put it, it's like an addiction that you just can't get enough of, even if you've played the game a gazillion times.
  11. It may be a cliché, but you will soon involuntarily be nodding your head in time with the breaks, whether they be rawk guitars or looped vocals.
  12. A simple but challenging rhythm game with unique gameplay and one of the best game soundtracks ever.

    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.
