  • Summary: Utilizing songs from major artists, players mix and remix songs through each of eight different instrument types. If remixed correctly, players can freestyle to create their own music. With 6 unique game modes, top hits from major bands, stunning 3D graphics, and video sequences of your favorite bands, FREQUENCY stays in tune with "the most immersive musical gameplay experience ever."

    This game is different, addictive, fun, and the multiplayer and remix modes ensures nearly infinite replay value.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Has a knack for making the seemingly mediocre an incredible success. [Dec 2001, p.95]

    Throw away every pre-conceived notion you may have about games involving music mixing, as Frequency is not only strong in its fun factor, but intensely addictive as well.
  6. 73
    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.
  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.

    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.

    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.
