    While Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X isn’t as brilliant as Future Tone, nothing is, and the core rhythm game action is faultless. An inspiring, entertaining soundtrack, coupled with stunning characters, costumes, and choreography makes this essential.

    Despite some minor issues, 'Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X' is a lovingly produced, beautiful, and extremely fun rhythm game that stands as possibly the best on both PS4 and Vita so far.

    Despite the small number of tracks, what’s on offer here is highly accomplished, and Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X’s attempts to bring something new to a rather static style of game are both successful and engaging. Players who can find something to love in Miku’s musical leanings will definitely want to check out their goddess’ latest incarnation.

    Project Diva X is by far the best game in the series so far. It improves the visuals, customisation, music selection and even the performances.

    Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X is a good rhythm game with a great visual, deep customization and a nice selection of J-Pop tracks able to entertain for dozens of hours.

    The latest game in the “Project Diva” series. It maintains the usual great gameplay and it’s a really fun title indeed but its poor quantity of songs, only 30, makes the game fall below its predecessor.

    Hatsune Miku Project Diva X is a complete retooling of a series that didn’t need it, hobbled by a sub-par tracklist and an overall lack of substantial content.

    Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X in VR is Quietly (and Cutely) Revolutionary

    There are already a few musical experiences available for PSVR such as Joshua Bell, Chainsmokers: Paris, Kygo and Harmonix Music VR. The Hatsune Miku VR experiences are arguably the best of them all.

    Project Diva X in VR essentially gives you the chance to edit your own version of a Hatsune Miku live performance or music video and then experience it in person. There are 30 songs to unlock, along with 30 unique locations ranging from dystopian cityscapes to futuristic concert stages. Each location features unique special effects that you can deploy as you choose in the concert editor, allowing you to curate your own virtual musical experience.

    • The graphics are sensational in VR, the beautifully animated choreography is massively enhanced by the120fps frame rate.
    • The songs are catchy, well crafted and surprisingly diverse in terms of sound palette, encompassing elements of pop, electronica and rock ("Ai-Dee" and "Even a Kunoichi Needs Love" are my favourites.)
    • The costumes are amazing too, being highly detailed and creatively designed. Each of the six singers has a comprehensive wardrobe unique to them.

    Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X is recommended to anyone who's looking for high quality VR experiences and any music fans who wants to see what the future of pop might look like. And if you're an existing Hatsune Miku fan, you owe it to yourself to try out the VR experience.

    Stunning.

I also love the songs in this games it's more futuristic and energetic that it will have you to have chills. Another example is the main events when you complete 5 songs in a cloud you will have main event when you complete the 5 songs and I love how they mixed old and new songs from previous diva games you will need to play past diva games to appreciate and notice these songs. Also Meiko V3 is amazing. Expand

Makes me feel like I'm actually doing something significant. The outfits this time around are earned in these quests and actually boost your stats during songs so it makes you want to use them. A lot of new songs that I haven't heard before is pretty great. You can hold festivals which plays multiple songs it's a lot of fun. The game keeps you busy and involved and is very fun. I have 0 complaints. Expand

    I previously played Project Diva F and F 2nd. My brief opinions of those:

    I previously played Project Diva F and F 2nd. My brief opinions of those:

    F: A button-pressing rhythm game with a lot of character. Is easy to get into and incredibly difficult to master. Fun costume collecting.

    F 2nd: I didn't like it as much as the first one. Difficulty increased, which made it much harder on my old-man carpel-tunnel hands. I didn't like the songs as much, but that might be because I didn't play it as much. Good thing the costumes automatically unlocked from the first game.

    Things I like about Project Diva X are:
    1. It's technically better than the previous two games. It runs at a higher framerate, the character models are a bit better, the sound quality is better, and the easy/normal mode button sequences more closely match the songs.
    2. It's a tiny bit easier than Project Diva F on easy mode, so this one is even easier to get in to.
    3. The songs are good. I like them better than the songs in F 2nd. And they have an overall production quality increase over the songs in the prior games.
    4. The song melodies are awesome.
    5. Several of the new songs are awesome (read the lyrics if you can).
    6. Unlocking outfits is more random and happens during Chance Time during each song. For the most part, unlocking them all is easy.
    7. Poking characters on the head is fun, though there's a limited amount of enjoyment to get from this.

    Things I didn't like so much were:
    1. Some items and costumes are locked behind Hard and Extreme difficulty levels. I can barely make it through some Hard mode songs, but Extreme is impossible for me. Thankfully there's only a few costumes that require you to get through an Extreme song.
    2. While the songs are good, there's not many of them and most of them are for Miku. The other characters have only one song each. If you were expecting some of that awesome Rin/Len back-and-forth like there was in F, you won't find that here (except in one of the melodies).
    3. if these characters use synthesized voices, why can't they have the character I pick sing the song instead of Miku? It's just silly to go through a song with a guy making a girl's voice.
    4. There's a story mode. It's not horrible, but it really paints the Diva characters as being airheads. And why do they start flapping like they're birds when I give them a gift that they like?
    5. There's only concerts. Every song is done on a stage with your character dancing and singing. There's no music-video style songs like there were in the previous games.
    6. There's no interaction between the characters and the button targets like there was (although rarely) in previous games.
    7. Costume unlocking is somewhat random, and some costumes come from only certain songs, so you might spend a lot of time in a song you don't like trying to unlock one.
    8. The custom concert-creator is much more limited than it was in previous games.
    9. There's still under-skirt censorship in certain modes. You can see what's under them if you get the angle right, and it's not normally pretty. Their rear-ends could have used more polygons and better textures. Maybe they're really censored because they're ashamed at how bad they look.

    The game has its ending credits after about 5-10 hours of gameplay, after you complete all songs and get enough points. You can then continue after that to get more points that unlock more challenges (for the same songs) and new costumes.

    I've spent about 40 hours in the game so far and have got about 95% of everything I want to get. I spent about 75% of my time on easy mode, 20% on normal, and the other 5% attempting hard/extreme. I have one final set of challenges to unlock, which will likely require some hard/extreme gameplay to complete, so I'll set the game aside for now.

    Although the list of things I didn't like were long, I like the game a lot. I'd say this is a must-have for the casual miku fan.

Songs are good, Gameplay is good, Miku looks great and her dance looks funny + beautiful depending on songs. There are tons of nice costumes to be discovered. This game is good for people who want to relief stress by playing some soft music game and enjoy watching anime character dancing.

    However, major letdown is that there are very few songs in the game (25-30 maybe). It has big negative impact on the score because songs are the game's meat.and with this very few songs, the game is not worth the price as it is. I would suggest you buy the game on 50%-70% discount. Or wait for the Future Tone, which will be release next year. That one should have more than 200 songs.

If songs were DLC, I would be disappointed, but at least I would be able to have more songs which should be the main focus of the game. It's not even the best songs, they are just a random collection and most of the songs are for Miku singing solo. The other characters might have been better not showing up at all.
    If I had bought this at the store instead of a thrift shop, I would have taken it back the next day.
    Don't waste your time on this title, the previous games are far superior.
