Once these tools are mastered, however, not only is it tremendous fun role-playing as a stadium-filling DJ, it’s also technically possible to stage a crowd-pleasing performance at an actual party – an opportunity that will, for now, have to wait for more communal times.
After years of letting gamers simply play other people’s songs, Harmonix has now decided to let players create new music using those songs. It truly feels like a fully-realized vision of melding music and games in ways that haven’t been done before and feels like the next step in music games. Harmonix is back in fine form, and that’s a tune we can all dance to.
In the time of covid i had little to do there were no new games that i played and there was fuser i had finaly my new favorite game now i can make my own mixes like a house mix and dubstep mixes. And i can even go in to co op Freestyle and play with people on all platforms. Or i go in just Freestyle to make new mixes and save them on my fuser profile so people who follow me on fuser can see it. And with a new update i can now show my mixes with alot people in the diamond stage and you can get the diamonds when you lvl up with the new live events it is a amazing game and i say this game is it worth to but if like this type of games btw the community of fuser is one of the best community ever they are not toxic community. Sorry if there is bad english it is becauce english is not my first language
Its a must have for whoever love music at least a little bit , and is absolutely fun for people that always wanted to "be a deejay" or remixing music etc... It is really incredibile how much things you can create and mix, I recommend to anyone that have "hear" or tempism with pressing buttons. If you don'thave those " skills" or "gifts, I wouldn't recommend it as you may struggle, but if you like music aniway , you can give it a go , you may have a lot of fun as well. Great Job developers.
An absolutely barnstorming return to the main stage for Harmonix, who have seemingly taken everything they’ve learned from eighteen years in the genre to create a fantastically creative, inventive and hands-stuck-to-the-controller levels of addictive rhythm video game, the kind of which has been sorely missed.
I suspect only those who are really into sticking with practising the skills available, like with a real instrument, will carry on playing this long after the novelty wears off. But if you’re looking for something fun, colourful and different that you can share with pals at home during the dark lockdown weeks ahead, give it a go.
For a few brief moments Fuser reinvigorates the glory days of social music gaming and in the right hands can be effectively be an instrument of music creation, but outside of the campaign there's little for the rest of us to do.
Fuser is a toy that wants to be a video game. The controls are not intuitive, the vision is limited, and the campaign is cringy to the core. I see that this game had its vision, but it fell through somewhere so they gave us a bunch of mixing options, some popular songs and slapped a steep price on it that is not worth the admission. I would much rather buy a real turntable than spend money on Fuser.
This is the game that I’ve been hoping for. being a bedroom DJ who likes eclectic mixes and mashups, I can say that Fuser captures the same vibe when you successfully pull off a beat lock mix in real life. As a bedroom DJ with my wife as my only fan, it also gives me the chance to reimagine myself as pre-pandemic, festival-caliber DJ. Yes, there are some DLC and unlocking songs too, and the library isn’t that expansive, but it still gives a challenge in the sense that you have do make do with some songs you like, fuse them with newly discovered ones, and create one, wild, eclectic mix.
Before reading this review, you need to know where I am coming from.
I started clubbing heavily in 99-2012ish? I love House, Techno, Trance, Dance Music in general, Euro music from the 90's, you name it, love it.
I played DJ Hero 1 & 2 to death and still have both, along with 2 turntables.
I got super excited to hear a new rhythm game was coming out from Harmonix. COVID took a toll on everyone in 2020. I haven't played a rhythm based game since DJ Hero 2, Rock Band 2. It's been a while.
Be very careful; this is not a video game as much as it's a tool to create your own megamix/music.
The Campaign acts as a long Tutorial to show you everything you're able to do with the game, which gave more direction and a drive to collect 5 stars on each set.
Other than Campaign, there's a freestyle mode where you could play to your hearts content. However, once you beat Campaign, you've pretty much heard the same songs over and over and over again.
Battle Mode is really iffy and I still don't full understand it. It's multiplayer so I can't really comment.
Social is where Harmonix will implement weekly challenges and you have to try and reach a top 25 in the leaderboard to unlock new aesthetics, clothing, designs, etc.
When this game works, it works REALLY well. For me, hearing Paul Van Dyk - For An Angel kick in during the end of a set reminds me of the wee hours of the morning, finally leaving a club after a rave. Part nostalgia but the other part is missing.
The game falls flat to me when it comes to replay value. I was hoping for more modes, couch co-op, more challenges, more direction? I'm not sure, since I'm not a developer.
I spent around $90 CAD and bought the VIP version when it was on sale, wish I didn't because you can easily pick the songs YOU want through a DLC.
Am I playing this game everyday? No. I walk away and walk back in randomly here and there.
Guilty as charged, I'll buy some DLC here and there when a song drops that I need in my crate like Tiesto, David Guetta or Darude.
I wish there was a leaderboard of some sort to fight for? It's just missing something to keep wanting to play it other than just creating your own megamixes. I love my dance music and I love the fair share of 80's tunes too as those grew on me in my later years but this new hip hop and pop music is brutal to my ears. If you like the tracklist, it could be for you but for me, it's fun at times.
