    Such a joy to play. [Issue#79, p.102]

    Combine this originality with the great music, cute characters (including a rival called Pudding!), and entertaining premise - it might just keep a lot of people hooked in there until the very end... those of whom haven't run off screaming into the night at the idea of a kitschy dance rhythm game, keeping them away from their precious FPS time.

    Space Channel 5 Part 2 arrives to the HD era with the same spirit it had in Dreamcast: entertain. Its charming characters and gameplay style make this game lovable, both for newcomers and nostalgics.

    You're constantly doing the same thing in Space Channel 5: Part 2. You can only play it for a little while before the boredom kicks in. The game is weird and absurd, making it surprisingly charming.

    A rhythm game from a time before they were popular. With its bizarreness on show for all to see, it certainly helps carry the game forward. But for all of its charm, the game falls down in the key area of control, making it difficult for you to see the adventure through to the end.

    Space Channel 5 Part 2 has no online multiplayer, but you won't be lonely with all the people you save serving as your back up dancers. The game looks easy at first, but unless you find the secret commands, and actually execute them, you can't get a perfect score. There's only 6 levels and a bonus mode after you beat them, but you'll find yourself playing them over and over again to try to get a better score, or just enjoy watching the colorful and lively characters move their hips. Definitely reminds me of PaRappa the Rapper, you follow the computer character's commands and time them accordingly, but it's much better than that game. Full Review »

    Tried out, got bored by it and uninstalled after 10 minutes: "Space Channel 5 Part 2" does have neither a good gameplay nor really appreciable musics.
