    No matter how odd it may seem, as soon as the opening notes of the very first song ("Ievan Polkka") kick in, you're probably going to get hooked.

    You’ll need to have a certain mind-set and an ear for songs that might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA f is exactly the type of game that deserves localisation in the West.

    Crisp, bright, and immensely enjoyable, Project Diva f will delight and challenge fans of Vocaloid and rhythm games alike.

    If you are a Hatsune Miku fan… well, you already bought this game. If you’re a fan of rhythm games in general, this is one of the best around and very much worth recommending.

    Slight presentation issues aside, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva f is a good entry for newcomers to get into the music rhythm genre.

Though honestly, I wished it (and the entire series in general) would be on Nintendo consoles as it would actually be fitting and that it got rid of the some of the provocative materials so it get at an E10+.

    The First US release of a Project Diva game and the first to land on the PS Vita. This game really is a huge improvement compared to theThe First US release of a Project Diva game and the first to land on the PS Vita. This game really is a huge improvement compared to the highly addictive Project Diva and Project Diva 2nd games, which were already extremely enjoyable. This game features the classic rhythm mode in which you try to hit the notes when the symbol reaches the mark while a song goes on. The songs in the game are all excellent and unique in their own way. There is the Diva Room in which you play around with the Vocaloid characters. It is quite entertaining and a step up from Project Diva 2nd. Another new aspect of the game is Edit Mode. You get to make your own music video along with a rhythm level. You can use your own music or the game's music. This gives the game more hours of fun. Overall, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F is a flawless game (In my opinion). I am very excited for the American release of Project Diva F 2nd, and I might not be able to wait and end up buying the Japanese release of it. I recommend this to anyone who loves the Vocaloids or rhythm games in general. Expand

    Beautiful visuals and good music makes this game a great game for gamers, who love rhythm games.
    They have improved the game-play and visuals from the psp version and now it's perfect.
    For me, it's the first game of the genre for the PSV and I love it. I played it 50 hours so far and I think I am addicted to it.
    I recommend it for everybody, who still needs a great game for the PSV.
    There is also a PS3 version, but the handheld version is better. There is no input lag.
    But if you are a graphics whore, you should buy the PS3 version.
    I am a graphics whore. I have both versions and totally worth it.

It's not meant for the masses, especially in America. I personally like this game because I've always wanted to play a music based game without using an instrument and these type of games (rhythm) are a perfect match for me.

    I like anime, I like Japanese games, I like music based games...wallah perfect game for me.
    I played this on the PS3 but I didn't play that much. I feel that this game is perfect on a handheld. The 5" screen isn't too large to the point where it's hard to keep along. Best part is that you don't have to worry about input lag since almost all of these vita screens are similar when it comes to input lag.

    Pros:
    -Fun
    -Addicting
    -Casual (I can take my Vita out of my bag and play this game when I have some free time. Just simply turn on Vita, and resume playing...better than a smartphone).
    -Pretty anime (warning, it will distract you...if you want to watch the videos then select watch music videos)

    Cons:
    -The scratching icon (rear or touch) can be pretty tiring, I wish that they let you use the joystick like on the PS3
    -Game can be at times a bit choppy (not to the point where it will mess you up but I notice things like that).

I saw the demo on the store and figured I'd give it a try as I like rhythm games. I must say that it is a lot of fun. While playing the demo I was having trouble clearing songs on normal, so it is a bit difficult, although I enjoy the challenge. I can definitely say this game will not be for everyone but you might as well try the demo to see if you like it and if not no harm done and your wallet will thank you.

    TL;DR Try the demo first :P

    The major problem with this version, however, is the notes in all of the charts appear later than they should. The timing window for getting a perfect judgement for any given note is shifted significantly after its corresponding musical cue. While on lower levels this may not be game breaking, once you hit 6+ it turns into a *very* big issue, and makes 9s/10s pretty much unplayable. The music off-set setting was removed from this version of the game as well, so those who bought it are basically SOL unless Sega decides to push down a patch for it.

    To be frank, it's more than a little disappointing. how this got past QA is beyond me.
