    Play Sequence well and you'll fall into Zen bliss, forgetting all your problems and applauding yourself after every victory. Fumble and you'll swear in grunts, hating yourself until you get it right. Perseverance is hard, but worthwhile.

    Overall, I was mildly entertained by Sequence, with its good points making up for the repetition, and leaving a bit little left over. Sequence only costs $5 (from Steam or Xbox Live), and it might take you up to 15 hours to complete, so along with it being odd and unique, it's also a pretty good deal. So if you have dexterous fingers and a weekend that you don't know what to do with, then there are certainly worse ways that you could spend your time.

    It's a fun game with some great mechanics and intriguing ideas going for it. If there was reduced experience gambling, less incessant grinding and a few additional songs, it could have been a far superior game.

    If you are not afraid of rhythmic games Sequence should definitely find the way to your screen. You get interesting musical title spiced with RPG elements. [Jan 2012]

    Sequence is sort of like serving someone a ham sandwich on a silver tray with all sorts of accoutrements. It's nice that it's a silver tray and not a paper plate, but I'm still eating a ham sandwich here.

    Sequence is a disappointment--a game with some good ideas that fails to build on its initially impressive showing.

The 'battles' are fast paced and engaging in a completely new way, and the combat system is so intuitive (especially when using a controller/gamepad as Iridium recommends) that you should find that your proficiency will improve quite rapidly. The art, voice acting/dialogue (particularly the humour), and character of the game is so charming, it's something that's difficult to pull yourself away from, and can't wait to jump back into. At only $5 (or less), this game is an absolute steal. Expand

    Price aside, the main control mechanism feels very clunky with a very unforgiving window of opportunity as to when the arrows can be clicked.Price aside, the main control mechanism feels very clunky with a very unforgiving window of opportunity as to when the arrows can be clicked. This is the type of frustrating element that can lead to a "play once or twice and forget forever" game. It's unfortunate because it's actually a nice little game aside from that. The synthing is a welcome addition to have a sideline objective. It's absolutely worth picking up though for the price it's costs - it's great value. 8/10 overall from me. Expand

    This is a good game
    But it's not perfect
    Lets start with its glaring issues, first of all, the grinding. While I don't have a problem with the crafting system which is xp for items, its fine, my problem is, items have CHANCES to drop, meaning you might have to do the same fight 10 times before you get the item you need. Second, the lack of music is kind of annoying for a rhythm game, and since you have to do the same fight over and over, and that really is a HUGE problem.
    What's good is its story, which, is basic, sure, but its good basic. The mechanics are good too, the spells are all unique, well, their casting is, the attacks are upgraded versions of others. The conversations and such are fun to read, but the 'twist' is very obvious. The difficulties do their job, and being able to play the map of the mana pool as a bonus is pretty cool too, but you can't change difficulties after floor 3. Overall, It's good even if I had less good than bad to say, it is overall a very interesting game. But in honesty I'm probably being bias because I like grindy rpgs.

It's a fun time killer and the dialogue is quirky, charming and at the most not boring. I guess It needs to be harder, even on the hardest setting (social retard mode, funny name) isn't that hard. And more music. The music is very well done. I just wish it wasn't re-used so much. Good concept, leaves you wanting a bit more out of it. But hey. 5 dollars. Expand
