    It’s just too hit and miss, too divorced from its stated purpose and is too anaemic in its dispensation of the funk.
  2. It has a lot wider appeal than you'd think, but it'll take a sequel for this to become truly heroic.
  3. Promising start of a new music game series is hampered by slightly unfriendly controls, lack of imaginative game modes and most of all by vast disparities in song quality. [Dec 2009]
  4. An interesting first game in the musical genre that tries something a little different. It's actually a nice little game that can be fun to play.

The soundtrack and mixes is what makes this game good. The music is main stream mix such as hip hop, rock, pop, electronic, and just plan old scratching. The tracks are just refreshing after countless guitar hero/rock band release after release. The controller is light and well built and design. The only thing holding this down is the price for the game. They should have price it $99.99 and $149.99 for the Renegade edition. Full Review »
