  • Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] Rock on and harmonize the unity between music and 2D platformer! As you control your character through the artful stages, you play the game as if it was a jammin’ rock song. Blast your enemies with riff combos and create your own soundtracks with each “strum” of a chord. You will have an ever-changing experience each time a stage is repeated. [Pieces Interactive] Expand

  1. Fret Nice contains one thoroughly enjoyable musical world. Rock on. [Mar 2010, p.84]
  2. Fret Nice's downfall is that it forces the player to repeat the same few levels far too many times. The game does have some fresh ideas and its art style is very charming, but the cons nevertheless outweigh the pros. Also, the guitar controls are horrible. [May 2010]
  3. 65
    A great soundtrack and unique art style can't save what is ultimately a failed experiment.
  4. Fret Nice is a quirky game with a lot of style. Unfortunately, quirky is not enough.
  5. Your guitar will gently weep for this frustrating platformer.
  6. The Way I See It: Horrible controls, busted gameplay and a frustrating experience.
  7. If you're tired of music games this peculiar platformer is no reason to keep your plastic axe either.
