Sure, there are plenty of titles that poke fun at multiple aspects of gaming tropes and the surrounding culture. But sometimes pulling back the curtain in a creative way can really work to the medium's advantage.

In an age of unnecessary grit and brown tones, it's nice to be reminded that there are games out there that can succeed at being compelling, functionally competent, and beautiful at the same time.

I’m not going fault them for at least giving this a try, but I think it would have been beneficial for 773 to go back to the drawing board on this one. It’s a premise that was worth exploring, but the execution of the concept was less than stellar.

The amount of content stuffed in here makes the game a really good value for the asking price. It's worth a pickup, but make sure you prepare yourself for a serious test of skill.

The story may be somewhat weak, but don’t let that deter you from picking this one up. Even though the game is short (my playthrough was about 4 hours), this is definitely something worth looking at.

It shows why people fell in love with it in the first place, and it’s a great way to fall in love with Miku and the gang all over again…or for the first time.

Putting this game back in my hands reminded me how enjoyable it is to relish in goofy ridiculousness. Even if it is a naturally short ride down memory lane, it’s a game well worth revisiting.

Part of me wonders if this might have worked better as more of a short film or something similar, because the story really is worth looking at. Instead we get a disjointed game that ends up stumbling to deliver what it set out to do, and it is honestly quite a shame.

It may not have the sharp writing that we’ve become accustomed to in gaming these days, but at the end of the day, it’s perfectly playable. Sometimes that’s all you need to have an enjoyable time. This one’s worth kicking back to.
