Fun and Cute. ^^

- Import price
- Easy mode uses only one button. (!)
- You play a percussion type sound to the beat of the music. I just thought this was kind of lame considering they could have lined your buttons up with the singing of the characters, or the guitar or something.
- You only press buttons on one side of the psp (Which means no drumroll like motions. You'll be doing this all one handed.) I consider this a bit of a missed opportunity. They could have increased both the complexity and the range of difficulty had they added more buttons.
- you can't play hard mode without first going through normal mode (which only uses two buttons.)
- Overall difficulty is moderate to easy. Not much of a challenge except on 9 and 10 star songs.
- No matter what character you have "equipped" the vocal track for the song doesn't change.
- Hatsune Miku gets a lot more character outfits than any of the other characters. Some characters only get two.
- Once you clear a song on one difficulty it will be labeled as "cleared!" on your song list. This is slightly annoying if you're trying to find songs you haven't cleared on a different difficulty. You have to click on a song and then scroll through the difficulty levels. This is a mild complaint, but I thought it worth mentioning.
- There is a part of the game called "Diva Room". In it you can watch your Diva do Diva-ish things, like sing and sleep and eat. As far as I know that's all it's for. I'm putting it on my con list, because it seems a bit gimmicky and pointless. If you're a vocaloid fan than any sort of bonus material may be considered a plus, though, I suppose.
- Great music :)
- There are 46 songs in all.
- Lots of images to collect. (Any of which can be used as a psp wallpaper)
- Lots of costumes to collect
- Lots of variety in costumes as well (although there does seem to be a disproportionate number of swimsuits. lol)
- Animations and character models are detailed and adorable
- You can choose whichever diva you want for whichever song you want, and switch out whenever you wish. (I like to find the girliest song, dress Kaito(male) up in his dorkiest outfit (Cyber Cat), and make him sing and dance to it. Mwahahaha.)
- There's a mode for watching the background animations as music videos.
- They give you a few different percussion sounds to choose from. (5 or so)
- I haven't been able to figure out Edit Mode, since I don't speak Japanese, but this is what wikipedia has to say about it: "the game's most highly praised feature, Edit mode, allows the players to create a customized music video of their desired song saved on their PSP and could even include gameplay."
- It's fun!
If you're vocaloid fan with cash to spare, then you should definitely pick this up. It's basically quality fanservice with a pretty good rhythm game to center it around.
For those who are specifically looking for a rhythm game, and want a challenge, you may want to check out the upcoming Dj Max Portable 3 instead.
While I love this game and am glad to have it in my collection, I'm not sure it is worth the price I paid for it. :/
