Hatsune Miku: Project Diva Future Tone Reviews
Fans of the Hatsune Miku franchise (or Miku herself) will likely be happy with what Future Tone provides. The sheer number of tracks on offer is impressive, but there's no doubt that this is a rushed compilation that provides little for those that aren't Miku-crazy.
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.
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.
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.

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.

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!
Think of Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone as a massive ‘best of’ compilation of her greatest hits that you can play and you can’t go wrong. It’s the kind of game that you’re likely to revisit for years to come.
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.
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.
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.
The core Hatsune Miku gameplay has barely changed, so if you liked it before, you'll like it now. The most compelling case for picking up Project DIVA Future Tone lies in the options you're given as to how much of the game you want to buy. While the free, base package won't give you much to sink your teeth into, either of the reasonably priced add-on packs offer an awful lot of bang for your buck, and combined they make up the most robust and complete version of Hatsune Miku ever released.
It’s so much Vocaloid goodness collected together in one place that whether you’re just discovering or are already a fan of Vocaloids it’s just something you have to experience.
Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone es the best compendium of any Miku games and songs to date. With more than 220 songs to play, a ton of unlockable costumes, great visuals and music vids, and easy controls but challenging gameplay, this game assures hours of fun to all of those who buy it, specially Miku fans. The only letdowns? That veteran players could feel that there isn't anything new that they had already saw in previous Project DIVA titles and the lack of a portable version.

Hatsune Miku is so much fun to get to grips with and will consume you if you allow it
Console port of an arcade title that might lack in modes, but more than makes up for it with its stellar, giant song list.
As the most content-rich Project DIVA game yet, Future Tone has a bizarre charm that should appeal even to the most vocaloid-averse rhythm game fans.
In terms of content and presentation, Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone is less a "Greatest Hits" compilation than a near-total PS4 remaster of more than half a dozen Miku games released over the last six years. What it lacks in frills, it makes up for in staggering volume, enough to satisfy anyone that's accepted Miku into their heart (that isn't already sick of playing older songs), or serve as a playable canon of popular Vocaloid compositions to pique the curiosity of the yet-to-be-converted.
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.
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.
Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone is exactly what I have always wanted from a Hatsune Miku game. A simple jump-in and jump-out at your own leisure rhythm game that is insanely addicting to play and fun at the same time. Without having to go through a story mode to unlock various songs and outfits, everything is literally right there for you to enjoy whenever you start the game up and feel like joining Hatsune Miku and her friends with some catchy tunes. Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Future Tone offers up more gameplay and things to do than any previous entry in the franchise before it, thus clearly making it one of the best, if not the best, Hatsune Miku title on the market.
