Top Critic Average
Muse Dash is simple, but the polished and addictive gameplay and visuals place it a notch above most rhythm games. A solid library of fun songs and precise beatmaps promises a fun experience, and at a price of only $2.99, it's basically a steal.
Muse Dash is an incredibly addictive rhythm game, especially if you're a fan of Japanese music. The cute characters and visuals match the overall anime-like tone of the game. Tons of songs to choose from will keep you busy for a good chunk of time, especially if you aim to do everything.
All in all, if you love good music, are quick with your fingers and are a fan of cutesy anime visuals, then Muse Dash is definitely something that will keep you busy for a long, long time.
While the progression system is mostly sound, I feel that the grind towards stat-altering costumes is somewhat harsh. In addition, the English text lines could have used a little more editing. Those points aside, this is the most complete experience of Muse Dash yet with a constant stream of updates in the pipeline.
Despite the heavy emphasis the game has on the the anime hungolomghnonoloughongous, I still heartily and highly recommend Muse Dash. Once in-game, the more suggestive costumes really don’t distract or detract from the gameplay and hey, if you like anime girl chests, all the fanservice is really just a neat little (read: huge) bonus for you.
Muse Dash is a rhythm game and an auto-runner that is full of color and personality. the music collection may not be for everyone though, i felt the game needed a bit more variety.

My hangups remain as they were a year ago with the lack of any big variations in songs genres — even with the DLC all included here — and the cringe-inducing fan-service that's on display. Even with all that said, this is an easily recommended must-buy for Switch owners looking for a music rhythm game.
If you want a quick blast of noise and a fun challenge then is right on tempo. The mechanics might be pretty clean cut but this deleteriously bright beat-down is charming.
Despite some writing issues missed in editing and minor technical issues, this rhythm game is simple, but incredibly fun and has lots of content for the budget price. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of customization and unlockables. Keep in mind though, this is a review of the PC version and the revenue model is different on some other platforms.
Putting the weirdness of the character skins to one side, is Muse Dash worth playing? If you can pick it for a couple of quid, sure. The mechanics are intriguing, the music is alright and there's a fair amount or replayability, given the huge collection of songs available too. If you really want to collect all of the skins, there are a fair few to choose from, but too many of them will get you odd looks on your commute to work.
Muse Dash has solid rhythm mechanics buried beneath a serious grind. Those that don't mind a bit of repetition will enjoy their time, but get ready to pay your dues if you're looking to see everything.
