Could not buy into it

I play a lot of games on many different systems and sometimes a game comes along that seems like it should be just what I was looking for, but instead I send it back faster then I can get out of a bad date. I played a few scant boards, didn't like anything I was looking at or listening to and when I failed a jumping section within the first five button presses a couple dozen times without ever having the tiniest of clues as to the why or how of it all, I remember how much I appreciate Gamefly.

To say it all a different way: I didn't like the music. I didn't like how the game in no way utilized 3D - it is there, but your character always moves along a predetermined 2D route. I didn't like the non-music still scenes where you have to tap every where to find hidden medals and then have a static conversation to move the plot along. I didn't like how the game told you exactly where to go but made you do it as if there was a choice involved. I did not like this game, but I give it points for working (up until it didn't for me, but I have to assume others got past that part leaving me an exception for that problem, not the rule is my guess) and that is about it.

Not for me, maybe for you.

Ok, do not get me wrong I love games with QTE, puzzles and what not. However with this I found it a little to easy as I was able to on most parts merely button mash and go through the motions. I found it to easy to be honest especially for the medals on the various little maps. The story is generic but it does it well (the french accents are just ermergerd though) and the cutscenes are beautiful. Just not my slice of cake..worth a rent for sure but not a buy.

This game looks beautiful, The music choice is excellent sometimes (Reminds me of the first De Blob) the story is interesting enough to keep going through MANY repetitive moments in the game and "Sound fetch" quests. Many things for OCD players. This is a good original game from SEGA and if you have a 3DS and are in the mood for a rhythm game this is definitely worth a RENT!
