"Fantasia: Music Evolved" takes players on an interactive motion-controlled journey through worlds of music and magic, unleashing their creativity along the way.
    Using Kinect motion control technology and natural, controller-free gameplay, players control the music flow from some of the industry's biggest acts, including electronic DJ and producer AVICII, chart-topper Bruno Mars, and rock royalty Queen. "Fantasia: Music Evolved" gives players the power to change the mix of their chosen songs in real-time, choosing between the original recording and new remixed versions, or adding new layers of music via magical manipulators that allow them to change music in new ways.

    With intuitive controls and great tunes, Disney’s Fantasia: Music Evolved is not only a fantastic rhythm game, but one of the best Kinect games ever made.

    Fantasia: Music Evolved provides a surprising amount of control and personalization options over each song, which is paired with fun gameplay to bring a fresh new style to the music game genre.

    If Harmonix’s latest project at times fails to find footing as a traditional game, it makes up for it by invoking a novel experience of discovery, creation, and involvement with music.

    Like everything Disney inspires, it’s the colorful and playful energy that will keep you coming back. It’s just tough to stay excited about waving your arms around for very long.

    The concept is fine in its basic form, and it emulates the Disney like conducting from the movie The Sorcerers Apprentice in an entertaining way. However, Kinect's more unpredictable elements makes for some bumpy moments at times.

Excellent game andFantasia is one of the best games for Kinect 2 ever made. It can be fun and beautiful at one time, it is worth buying it. Excellent game and something different for a change, there is a demo on Xbox Live to try out and it really is worth downloading to get an idea of the game. Expand

Incredible technical example of good KinectI bought the digital deluxe copy on day one based on the demo. It was worth every single penny. Incredible technical example of good Kinect integration. 100% fun and you can try it out for free via the demo if you don't believe me. My wife and I play this together several times a week and both of us love it. Sure it's a little corny in places, but the songs are all top notch and the remix system is a blast. I firmly believe that this is better than Rock Band and Just Dance combined. Expand

It's gorgeous and extremely fun! If you're also looking for a nice decent Kinect game, I'd say Fantasia it's the best to use the sensor so far on Xbox One. The commands are very precise! The gameplay is much more fun than any Guitar Hero ou Rock Band game, with the possibility to change mix while playing a music!

    If you know Fantasia and like to play modern music games, Fantasia is perfect for you!

    Menü:
    Wenn man typische Kinectspiele hatte sollte man klar kommen. Wenn nicht ist dies nicht schlimm, man wird gut an die Hand genommen wie alles funktioniert mit den zoomen und streichen mit den Händen. Alles sehr einfach und leicht. Es ist nicht nur ein lebloses Menü im Storymodus sondern man befindet sich in Räumen und Zonen, die sehr liebevoll gestaltet sind.

    Game:
    Disney-Fans haben sich sicher schon einmal bei dem Film "Fantasia" gefragt, warum es ein solches Spiel nicht gibt, wo man eben auch alltägliche Sachen beherrschen kann, so wie es Mickey mit den Wellen versucht.
    Nun ist es mit Musik sehr gut möglich! Sei es alleine oder zu zweit.
    Das Ziel des Spieles ist, viele Musikstücke (zum Start 35 an der Zahl) im richtigen Takt zu streichen, schlagen und führen, so dass man sie immer hört. Das ist per anfänglichen Tutorial sehr gut erklärt, dass Kinder, Jugendliche und Erwachsene ihren Musikspass haben können. Es ist nämlich für jedem Alter etwas dabei, sei es aktuelle Chartstürmer wie Lady Gaga oder Bruno Mars, Oldies wie von Queen, Elton John oder David Bowie, Elektronische Musik von Depeche Mode und sogar Klassikmusik wie von Beethoven. Zudem kann man weitere Musik per DLC nachkaufen und downloaden. Jeder Song hat zudem noch 3 Remixe, die man sich freispielt - was viel Spass bereitet.
    Diese ganze Musikreise ist mit einer sehr freundlichen Geschichte um den Zauberer und seinem ehm Lehrling begleitet.
    Einige Texte der Songs wurden zensiert.

    Graphik:
    Als typisches Kinectspiel setzt man hier auf eine familienfreundliche, einfache, farbenfrohe Graphik. Man sollte nicht viel erwarten, da dies nicht das Ziel des Spieles sein soll.
    Leider gibt es manchmal Kantenflimmern.

    Sound:
    Die Musik ist sehr gut wiedergegeben. Räumliche Klänge, Verzerrer und andere Tools sind gut eingebaut und bringen Abwechslung rein. Perfekt.

    Fazit:
    Fantasia: Music Evolved ist aktuell das beste Kinectspiel für die XBOX One. Für jeden Musikfan, der Kinect sein Eigen nennt ist es sehr empfehlenswert. Als Nebeneffekt hat man etwas mehr Bewegung beim spielen, aber nicht so viel wie bei Kinect Sports.

    Music is life.
    I feel a music man.
    Certamente um dos melhores games do Kinect. Realmente uma bela e eclética biblioteca de musicas. É um game leve e relaxante.
    Se você tem um dia difícil com muito trabalho e estresse, esse é o seu jogo. Vá em frente e deixe se levar pela música regida por você mesmo.
    Congratulation Harmonix

    Fantasia is a positively wonderful gaming experience. The gamer interacts with the music in creative, intuitive and fun ways. Friends ofFantasia is a positively wonderful gaming experience. The gamer interacts with the music in creative, intuitive and fun ways. Friends of mine, who would never play a dance/rhythm game, enjoyed playing Fantasia as much as I did. The only negative I've found is that some songs are locked from multiplayer play until you've unlocked them in the career mode. While mildly disappointing, no one seemed to mind taking turns and playing the single player career mode. Finally, my Kinect is useful for something other than "Xbox On". Expand
