by thelegendarydancemaster VOCALOID FANS WILL HAVE A BLAST!!!
Bought this game day one and have had a blast playing it, even though I bought a PS4 which I'm loving, but I keep my ps3 plugged in and ready to go so I could play some HATSUNE MIKU: PROJECT DIVA F!!!
Rated 8 out of 10 by RayRayPlay Pre Release Not your game unless you're Veteran
Well, obviously with this review, I'm saying my pre release thoughts. And this is a quick summary: unless you're into the Hatsune Miku line or music/dance genre games, this isn't for you. Although I do commend Japan for FINALLY giving us a US release of one Hatsune Miku Game, I personally believe that Portable games have taken the market by storm and will last longer than any station game hands down. Far more convenient and easier to adjust to hand controls in our day to day lives, it really would have been better to just give us one of the PSP releases a few years back. This game does look interesting, and hopefully their will be a lot of character customization and unlockables, because for storyline-less games, this really brings the ball rolling. The graphics look stunning and for Hatsune Miku fans who have been waiting for a local release, you'll be thrilled. Just don't expect too much.
Rated 10 out of 10 by BlackRock2034 LOVE THIS GAME!
I'm a really big Vocaloid fan and when i heard that this game was coming to the US, i knew i needed it. The game play isn't like your normal rhythm game, where everything fallows a single path, this game has notes coming in every direction and knows how to keep you on your toes. The game features some awesome songs such as Black Rock Shooter (my favorite), ODDS&ENDS, Secret Police, and much more! The game even has the feature to make your own music video to your fav. song stored on your PS3. The game is chalked full with other great an interesting features like Character customs, "Live Shows", and a Character interaction room where you can spend time with your favorite Vocaloid! All in all this game will keep you hooked on it for hours and hours on end and is heavily recommended to any Vocaloid fan or those interested in great rhythm games!
Rated 0 out of 10 by Kyoki Get it.
I got the demo not too long ago.. fell in love with it instantly and since I know some Japanese (enough to move around the game) didn't hesitate to buy that version online.
THREE WORDS: BEST GAME EVER~! Cutesy and colorful graphics, catchy music and lots of other options to keep you entertained♥
The game is challenging and has a good replay value without mentioning there's a whole bunch of cute unlockable items to make your gaming experience even better!!
So if you were once a fan of music games like Guitar Hero or RockBand, then GET IT! Sure, the music is FAR different from the one on these games but if you're into Japanese music and don't have any trouble with squeeky voices then this game is worth your money~!
I personally don't plan on getting this version unless it has something the Japanese version doesn't (which I doubt) but yeah.. YOU MUST GET IT♥!
Rated 10 out of 10 by KittyNekkyo Excellent as expected.
As a vocaloid fan, I specifically bought a PSP just so I could import Project Diva 2nd. These series of games are absolutely amazing. The songs are incredible and the videos are amazing. Being able to finally get a localized version and for the PS3 no less was just awesome.
I would definitely recommend this games more for casual gamers. There is no real story line, however, you can spend hours perfecting your play of the songs or even creating your own dances to the included songs or songs you download to your PS3. You can also interact with the characters themselves and give them gifts and fix up their rooms to gain scenes with them. There are also so many different outfits to choose from so you can customize your game play.
I did an 8 on the lasting appeal simply because it is a rythym game and once you beat it, there is nothing to do but try and perfect your play or create new dances. However, its one of those games that you can continually come back to and play when your bored, waiting in line, or on a road trip.
I'm crossing my fingers that they bring some DLC over as well, some of the songs offered as DLC over in Japan are ones I would love to play.
Rated 0 out of 10 by karie OH MY GOD I CAN'T WAIT
Oh my god i loved the demo. I got the demo on the PS3. And it was a lot of fun. I was trying to find the real game like the actually game not a demo. And then i saw this on here. I was so happy. what i am really surprised about is that they made a english version. All of the songs are still in japanese. But you have no english subs. All they have is the pronunciation of the words they are singing. So you are reading that and not really paying attention to the notes. you are supposed to hit.. Then the Notes are blended in with background. So you are kinda just hitting the buttons not knowing if you are hitting then at the right time. All of the colors are neon. So if you just woke up and it is like 2:00 am and you want to play that game it will probably hurt your eyes because i made that mistake.
Rated 10 out of 10 by panku Totally worth it for any Vocaloid fan
I'd preordered the game and recieved a few days ago. I've been playing it ever since. It's great. Surpassed expectations. I would've thought it'd be just like some sorta DDR game. (not owning a PSP I never got to play the previous games, though I intend to) It's actually pretty cool, the targets are placed sorta all over the screen. And you'd think that makes it harder to play, but really your eyes just follow the targets, it's fairly simple. I thought it was nice they had an option so you could adjust the button timing due to tv lag. But what I really wasn't expecting was the "Edit" feature. You're able to insert your own mp3, or some mp3 on your ps3, and it puts it into a small workshop where you can make your own game. Lip sync it, make up choreography, camera angles, effects. Everything! Ahah, that was really cool and I've been working on a song for awhile now too! Pretty easy to use interface as well! -- Overall, it was totally worth the 50-something dollars cashed out for this, and as a Vocaloid fan I'd recommend this to anyone else who also likes Vocaloid. (* On a special note, one of my favorite Vocaloid composers; Wowaka, has several songs in this game which only made it even better!)
Rated 0 out of 10 by SoupaTom A fun mix of guitar hero and tap tap revolution
I've always been a fan of JRPG's and anime style things, but never thought something like Vocaloid would do well in the US. I was extremely surprised when I found out that Project Diva was actually getting a localized release and when the demo was released I tried it out, and I was more than just impressed. Not only was I instantly hooked, I couldn't stop playing. The game in my words plays a lot like Tap Tap Revolution and Guitar Hero put together, with gorgeous backgrounds and fun catchy songs from Vocaloid. The game is however extremely difficult, though the demo only supports easy and normal difficulties, so I can't even imagine Hard and whatever the 4th setting is. I am looking forward to it very much and if you like rhythm games I recommend checking it out.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Weekendergirl Fun songs, fun time!
I'm a big fan of Vocaloid and when I found that they were going localize this game to the US, I got really excited! When you first play it's tricky at first, but luckily, there are tutorials in the game to help you out and you start to pick up right away. There are tons of songs to choose/edit from that are popular from NND (Nico Nico Douga), and ones we are familiar with like Nyanyanyanya. Plus, you get to hang out/play Jakenpon (think rock, paper, scissors) with Miku and her friends in their Diva rooms if you want to take a break and customize their rooms/costumes to your liking. If you've enjoyed playing rhythm games, this game is a definite check out! I hope they continue to localize Vocaloid games like this. *fingers crossed*
Rated 9 out of 10 by Ritsoka great b-day present
i got it as a b-day present for my wife, she's obsessed with Miku and the other vocaloids. She would happily sing the songs as she played. I give it an 8 as a lasting appeal, because she beat it on normal in 1 day, beat it on hard in 3 days, and finally beat it on extreme in a week. After that she rarely plays the game at all, not even tho play with the characters in the room.
