Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X
Top Critic Average
While this iteration fixes many of the annoyances of the previous titles, it added a few of its own, though not enough to sour the experience. This is hands-down the best music and rhythm game of the current generation of home consoles, though it isn't exactly a competitive genre these days. I'd rank Project Diva X in my top ten favorite music games ever, but no one has yet to topple the king; PaRappa the Rapper is still the funky flowing top dog of the genre.
Project Diva X is by far the best game in the series so far. It improves the visuals, customisation, music selection and even the performances. It’s hard to recommend previous games over this one, but it’s not perfect, and the weak story mode that’s been added is hard to ignore. If you do manage to overlook it, you’re in for an addictive and endlessly replayable rhythm game that hits a high note for the Project Diva series.
Miku has never looked better in her jump to PlayStation 4, with Project DIVA X delivering an array of show-stopping songs and performances that make her latest outing her best to date.
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X is definitively the finest music game on PlayStation 4. It boasts a ton of replay value, and the mechanics are in a league of their own. Trying to better your own high scores can become incredibly addictive, and you could sink hours into the game without even realising it. If you know that you hate J-pop then this game won't be for you any more than a great football game like FIFA 15 would be for someone that hates sports. But if you're willing to take a chance on Hatsune Miku and her sugary sweet brand of pop, then you'll find an incredibly well-crafted rhythm game that is welcoming to new players while providing just enough of a challenge for veterans of the genre.
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X is another fine handheld entry into the rhythm game series, but in the end I was left wanting more. Still, genre fans can't go wrong with it.
Less bang for your buck is the best way to describe Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X. You've got a truncated songlist that has to be milked for modules, giving this series a grind game that it never needed to have. It's still got some great music and the presentation is as excellent as ever, but it still feels like we've been shortchanged somehow.
While it isn’t without fault, Hatsune Miku's western PlayStation 4 debut is addictive, compelling, and plenty of fun.
The long-running Project Diva formula gets a welcome freshening up in Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X. While a good-but-not-great soundtrack and a few misguided decisions keep it from reaching its full potential, this is probably the best chapter gameplay-wise we’ve received in the West yet.
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X is a strangely catchy, thoroughly Japanese rhythm game that's a blast to play, even if you don't quite understand what a vocaloid is.
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X is a meaty entry in the rhythm genre featuring bright visuals, catchy songs and plenty of stuff to collect for obsessive-compulsive gamers. The game is a bit grindy and can be intimidating to newcomers. Track selection also can feel limited when compared to certain Hatsune Miku titles. Still, it’s a cute, fun and mechanically solid idol-based rhythm game that you can enjoy without feeling like a creep, especially if you’re a dude who’s starting to get up there in age like I am.
