"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.

    While it won’t have the party appeal that comes with instruments, it’s a more intuitive, beautiful, and creative experience.

    I for one found Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved to be a very enjoyable experience and one that I will certainly pick up from time to time even after the magic has worn off.

    With great rhythm gameplay and creative composition, Fantasia: Music Evolved is a colorful title that earns its Fantasia name.

    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.
  6. Joyous and colourful, it's a shame that the motion tracking can be off at times. [Xmas 2014, p.79]

    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.

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!

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

    This game gets a 10 because a risk of a game like this, that ends up delivering beyond belief the way that it did, needs to be recognized. IThis game gets a 10 because a risk of a game like this, that ends up delivering beyond belief the way that it did, needs to be recognized. I had zero expectations with this title because the premise sounded odd and the tracklist seemed to completely counteract the fantasia title and reputation that came with it. I couldn't have been more wrong. Yes, this game has Bruno Mars, Drake, Lorde and other shruggers but the remixes in this game make you not care one bit. They are incredibly interesting and performed very well. Plus, the motions used in this game feel so natural its hard to explain. It's like playing Elite Beat Agents with your whole body and that was one of the best DS games I've ever played.

    The cool ways you compose songs by interacting with animals and environments is the highlight for me honestly. You conduct these melodies that act as themes for different worlds and the way you do it feels right at home with the Disney license.

    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.

    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
