Beatmania's long-overdue release outside of Japan shows off its many weaknesses, with the most egregious of which being its unimpressive song list.
Bias: I love the Beatmania machines. Hardware: the controller is plastic with a decent weight to it, so it won't flop around, and just the right size for this adult guy's lap. The keys feel just like the arcade machin... Read Full Review0 of 0 users found the following review helpful
