This title was a much needed breath of fresh air for the music rhythm genre, and a perfect example of how you can use the kinect in a game - and have it be fun. I can honestly say, even with it's faults, and the short playlist, this game is worth the price of entry - provided you still have Kinect.

A magical journey of remixable songs.

This is one of the best Kinect games out there. If you like music, movement, Fantasia, or Disney, you owe it to yourself to give Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved a shot. It serves as a respectful ode to a great movie, and a great moment, an encore performance to one of the finest animated films of all time. Well done, Mickey.

It's not going to surpass Rock Band as the de facto music party game, neither is it going to save Kinect. But, as a potential swansong to Microsoft's neglected camera, Fantasia: Music Evolved is more than worthy.

Fantasia Music Evolved is a very interesting concept from Harmonix that actually works quite well on the Kinect 2 and you do feel like a magical conductor as you manipulate the music with your gestures. The only let down with the game is that once you have finished it a few times and tried to collect all the achievements and aimed for the high score, the replay value does become a little stagnant.

Some of the best features are frustratingly kept out of the player's hands for hours, by which time many will have lost interest.

Fantasia was a treat to play. I had a lot of fun going back and playing songs i'd loved as a kid like "Bohemian Rhapsody," or mixing up some of today's singles like Lorde's "Royals." Fantasia is a great party game to play with some friends, and really shows that Harmonix can continue to put out quality music experiences for people to enjoy. Not to mention, it's another game that I feel really utilizes the Kinect in a way that actually makes it an enjoyable peripheral to have.

[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.

'Fantasia' is a joy to play from start to finish. It has smart, addictive Kinect features, a great (if limited) soundtrack, and uses its source material wisely. It has a few things holding it back, like its weak visuals, frequent load times, and choppy menu navigation. Even taking those into account, this is easily one of the best Kinect-based games to date and is more than worth a long look.

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.
