  1. It's a unique little platformer that's pretty much perfect for the service, and while it's ideal control scheme might have a few flaws to it, the overall enjoyment I gained from playing it definitely outweighed the bad.

    Fret Nice reminds me of LocoRoco in the way its stages aren't terribly difficult to plow through, but finding all of the enemy locations, music notes, and little extras will take a lot of time. Still, I wouldn't advise picking up Fret Nice unless you're okay with abandoning its peripheral-centric gimmick to get down to the game underneath.
  3. Doesn’t quite live up to expectations. The separate platforming and music elements provide us with a solid foundation, but neither element receives the benefit of extra attention from the developers.
  4. It's a genuinely clever use of the guitar controller. [Aug 2010, p.115]
  5. Fret Nice isn’t a bad game by any means, and it’s actually pretty entertaining in small doses. The unique presentation and pleasant soundtrack enhance the experience, even though the gameplay itself doesn’t do much to distinguish itself.
  6. If you enjoy platformers and want to go on the cheap, this is a game packed-full of original levels and fun gameplay. Plus, it offers co-op.

    A great soundtrack and unique art style can't save what is ultimately a failed experiment. Using a guitar peripheral to control a platformer is just as clumsy as you would imagine.
  8. It's all quite charming, but not enough to elevate it to an above-average adventure. [June 2010, p.85]
  9. 60
    If your dream is to platform with your guitar peripheral, Fret Nice is everything naughty. Stripped of its own gimmick, it's just a quirky downloadable platformer with gameplay tailored to an idea that doesn't work. Rock at your own risk.
  10. Your guitar will gently weep for this frustrating platformer.
