Could be a fun game to experiment and get lost in customizing different songs.  I'd probably never get past Bohemian Rhapsody, since that song on its own is brilliant, and has so many layers to begin with.

I don't get the idea that you can "compose" and "create" music the way you want. All your doing is waving your hands around trying to time it just right. Like @fntst83  said the CREATE part just seems to be the equivalent of playing with a wah wah pedal. And @Phaze9 idn who makes rocksmith but that has been an amazing advancement in music gaming. As a beginner level guitar player myself I love looking up and practicing chords playing with different pedals and amps and the slight learning curve as well as the techniques

Looks pretty.

Guy lost me when he used "Metallica" and "Queensryche" in the same breath.

Music gaming is far from dead. As a professional DJ myself, I can tell you what Harmonix is doing here has never been done. This isn't just a gimmicky way to bring in Kinect, it's also a redefining way to make each and every song personal to you. Harmonix has done great things and are highly under rated. I remember their first game on PS2. It was a hit. Ever since then they've just been ignored because it isn't "CALL 0 D00TIE".

Very interesting!

She did miss some, but it just seemed to fade out the track

I much prefer that piano version of the Queen song as aposed to the parts she picked. Its looking nice.

First of all I don't think that has anything to do with fantasia. 

Second, where do I have the possibility to actually CREATE my own music(apart from that effect in which I can manipulate the guitar).

Third, because that guy was talkin all the time I didn't get the difference in the remix part.

Fourth, I would have loved to see what happens if you move wrong. Unfortunately the girl has been always on point to trigger the buttons.

Fith,the new kinect opens so many feautres to work with but in fantasia all you can use is your both hands.


I think this is a nice approach to make a game for kids to keep them occupied but I'd be suprised if it sells more than 1000 copies.

Oh my GOD, I can't believe this would be the REASON to HAVE KINNECT with XBOX ONE .... oh shit is this lame

Man, that guy keeps talking and talking over the music! Geez, i just want to watch and hear the beautiful music, not his voice

In a conducting standpoint, this is brilliant. I have been waiting since Wii Music(shudder) when there would be a game that would involve my movements influencing the music. Here it's not about looking like a cool person(or not) dancing, it's about expression, making the music your own, and becoming a part of the music. If there is ever going to be a conducting video game, this is the first step in the process.

Pretty cool, I dont think this is enough to bring music gaming/peripherals back. 


EDIT: I mean seriously, music gaming died hard. 


EDIT II: Really hard.

@robert83a2 It is a great concept for music gaming.  You can knock the kinect all you want, but for those who wish to expand their experience beyond the typical RPG, FPS, Action/Adventure I think it is a cool concept.  If you're a fan of music and like to tinker around with different compositions, Harmonix is doing something fun and innovative

@robert83a2 This isn't THE reason to have the kinect, it is just a reason to have a kinect and it is obviously not for everyone.

@robert83a2 ummm no it isn't.... look how it is being used in Ryse.... much much better than "pausing action, scroll down on a list to select something"...
