  1. For not really improving much, it doesn't feel like MTV Music Generator 3 as much as it feels like this should have been "MTV Music Generator 2."
  2. Xbox Nation Magazine
    The most impressive thing about Remix is its clean, intuitive interface. [Aug 2004, p.91]
  3. games(TM)
    The title does offer features and functionality (for Xbox owners, at least) that can only otherwise be obtained through pricey PC software, and the fact that a console title can even approach this kind of professional software has left us particularly impressed. [Aug 2004, p.114]
  4. The biggest drawback to this title is the small playlist of songs that play like a soundtrack for Summer 2003. However, it's worth a look when you couple the lower price with an unbelievably complete set of features.
  5. The tools and interface make it easy to customize tracks in a lot of different ways. The only drawback is that you’ll probably be the only one enjoying them.
  6. Other more robust PC software would be better for the true fan, but if you’re new and want to see if this is something you would like to pursue MTV:MG3 would be a good place to start.

    I give it a 5 as its only halfway there. It has some nice features, ease of use, handy tutorials, and good quality sounds. The problems lie I give it a 5 as its only halfway there. It has some nice features, ease of use, handy tutorials, and good quality sounds. The problems lie in the amount of samples are limited. Not only are they limited in number but are limited in the style of music you are playing. If you are playing house you have house beats to choose from, but why cant you include a melody from trance? Other problems stem from not being able to merge samples creating your own unique sample where by you can look at the back end of that sample and add or take elements away from it. What I mean by that is you can only change the initial sample but that change effects that sample throughout the whole track. So if at the end of a 32 count you wanted to drop the last beat before a kicker on the 33rd you cant cos that dropped beat will be repeated and reflected throughout the whole track where you have that sample placed. The effects on sounds are also limited, as mentioned you cannot change the pitch. Id rate the quality of the sounds better than Music 2000 on PS1 but not nearly enough samples. The main pull of Music 2000 over this as a console music maker is that it just had so much more freedom to create your own unique samples. Sure it has a ripper tool but the length of which is way too short 4 bars in total...which means you cant download a killer lyric from one of ya faves which may say...go for 8 bars. Copy it in two sections I hear you say? Yeah right tried that but trying to match them up seemlessly is nearly impossible. Hmm they are on the right path just fell way short of expectations I believe there is a huuuuge market here with Online users submitting their home console made tracks. We just need a production team to do it right. The first time, not on version 3 or 4 etc but getting it right the first time and then being able to build on that franchise. Fingers crossed.

    It is a good game to work with you have to know how to use it. You really have to have a passion for music like that.
