To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a fun, addictive rhythm game featuring the Vocaloid IA. It is comparable to the Hatsune Miku Project Diva series but still manages to distinguish itself from those games in terms of the music, visuals, and mechanics.
It's very difficult to write a review of this sort of product because I suspect that if you're reading this, you already know whether you're a Vocaloid fan or not. If you are, this is a great buy, and you'll have hours of fun with it, provided that you are OK with the fact that it's all in Japanese. (This is an import copy and no English subtitles are available.)
Compared to Project Diva, the graphics for the PVs for the songs in IA/VT are much more subdued and abstract, focusing less on IA herself and much more on abstract patterns, lines, shapes and color to visualize the songs. The gameplay is also uniquely different as the notes move in linear lines which makes it a little easier to keep track of them -- compared to Project Diva where notes fly in from all over the screen.
The production quality of the game isn't quite up to the very high standards set by Project Diva, but I enjoyed it nonetheless and there is some GREAT music on offer in IA/VT. Most of all, I'm just so glad that this game gives IA her own time to shine.
