Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone Reviews
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone is the closest we've gotten to a true arcade-style rhythm game in a while, and it's simply great.
Matt received a digital copy of Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone from SEGA for review.
In the end, while we in the Western world have been blessed with a few Hatsune Miku games in the past, nothing comes close to what Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone offers.
While Project DIVA Future Tone is a welcome addition to the PlayStation family, it most certainly doesn’t hold your hand when trying to master every song. Hitting that last note and realising you’ve got yourself a perfect or even scraping a pass is the most satisfying feeling ever.
Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone has a specific target audience and I’m just not in it. Recognizing that, this game has merit. For fans of JPop and the Vocaloids, Project DIVA Future Tone is definitely worth buying!
Future Tone is an outstanding rhythm game and Future Tone is the pinnacle of Hatsune Miku and Vocaloid games so far.
Project DIVA Future Tone is like the series' "Greatest Hits" version. It's charming graphics, fast-paced gameplay, and +200 list of playable songs is sure to please any rhythm game fan.
Future Tone is a Rhythm Game which provides one of the biggest musical compilations of all time. This new episode of the Hatsune Miku series is a great chance to approach J-Pop culture.

A massive improvement over the previous entry, a songlist spanning the entire series which has something for everyone. Great visuals and welcome updates to the classic gameplay offers considerable replay value, but doesn't shine enough to be the definitive game in the series.
A good rhythm game. Nothing more, nothing less. Straight into action you can play whatever Miku song you want from the start. Ideal for any Miku fan out there.

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.
Hatsune Miku is so much fun to get to grips with and will consume you if you allow it
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone is everything you love about J-pop. Its infectious music, snazzy visuals, and accessible yet challenging gameplay will have you shouting for an encore.
Considering the amount of content that Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone offers, it really had the potential to be a standout game. Instead, it’s only a paradise for hardcore fans as anyone else will likely grow tired of going through the extremely long tracklist. There’s very few hooks to grab the player’s attention, and unless you love the high score grind then there really isn’t much here. No story is being told like in Elite Beat Agents, and there’s not the slightest sense of progression as in Guitar Hero. Give Future Tone a go if you’re a Miku fan, but don’t be surprised if you find out that bigger isn’t always better.
Project DIVA Future Tone is a celebration of ten years with the Vocaloid crew, bringing nearly every song and outfit handcrafted for the digital singers into one complete collection on PlayStation 4.
Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone rectifies the main issue with Project Diva X by adding a huge song list that will have you playing for days on end. The lack of a story or interaction among the cast is disappointing and the difficulty can be intimidating for more casual players. Tight gameplay, lots of unlockables and catchy tunes, however, make this an easy recommendation for rhythm game fans.
Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone I have to say is absolutely worth the price of admission. The 200+ song list is just a crazy amount of content and there are tons of customization options to unlock along the way. Yes there aren’t any goals set out in the game leaving it up to the player to set them themselves. For any hardcore Miku fan I think this game is a must have and if you have been interested in the series but never jumped in yet this is probably the best entry point.
Console port of an arcade title that might lack in modes, but more than makes up for it with its stellar, giant song list.
SEGA and Crypton have polished the series’ challenging rhythm gameplay over the years, and Future Tone serves as the ultimate package for the most hardcore of fans to prove that they’ve mastered the art of very precise button pushing.
