Fantasia: Music Evolved
Buy it for the kids. Rent or Twitch it for the remixes.
The diversity of music, and the implementation of the movement controls in Fantasia: Music Evolved really are fantastic, and prove that Harmonix still has what it takes to re-define the genre they love so much.
A totally unique music title that will get even the most tone-deaf gamers enjoy composing and remixing tracks.
Rock Band and Guitar Hero are about playing music. Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved is about playing with music. While it won't have the party appeal that comes with instruments, it's a more intuitive, beautiful, and creative experience. Disney loyalists hoping for fan service in the same style of Kingdom Hearts of Disney Infinity might be a little disappointed, but this is one of the most interesting music games to come out in some time.
Music game master Harmonix teams up with Disney to deliver virtual music conducting experience that fun for the whole family
With intuitive controls and great tunes, Disney's Fantasia: Music Evolved is not only a fantastic rhythm game, but one of the best Kinect games ever made.
Disney Fantasia is a fun, family-friendly way to interact with and enjoy music. It's a great use of the Xbox One's Kinect sensor as well, one that shows how much fun the sensor can be to use and how much we're missing out on as it fades away. This is likely the Kinect's last big new title – aside from some possible Just Dance and Dance Central updates – but it's a very good one. If you're craving a way to use your Kinect or get your Harmonix fix, this is the way to do it.
When everything clicks into place (and sometimes it will), Fantasia: Music Evolved is a delightful experience that's part rhythm action, part exploration. It's a game capable of delivering real moments of magic, but is too often marred by inconsistent Kinect controls that can turn those feelings of joy into frustration.
[A]fter I spent some time with this game, I truly found myself having a ton of fun and didn't want to stop. Added in with the remixes and my own beats added in to the songs, this game really should not be missed by fans of the genre.
While there is much room for improvement, Fantasia: Music Evolved is still fun, and despite the issues I had with the game I still consider it one of the better games to play on the Kinect.
