and suddenly I fear deeply for the Mobile version of the game coming soon, as this was rather dreadful. Audio quality for everything but the game UI (not including the Cleared voice clip of "Wow! You're awesome!" for some reason...) is at like 64kbps. The song selection is rather lacking, consisting solely of a portion of the Original Songs for the categories up to Fiesta 2. The charts, at least as far as I could play, only went up to what used to be called Hard (though the trailer shows some Crazy level charts for unlockable songs). More importantly, the game has a real sync problem, drifting early and late, but mostly early. The keyboard setup is not ideal (on desktop, it throws you [d], [f], [space], [j], and [k]) but workable, it's just that it combined with everything makes this not a desirable product.
Also, microtransactions. They're not active yet, but dangit, Andamiro really is getting into it with both this and the Scouting from the closed beta for Mobile. It costs more of the consumable to play harder charts, like, really? The only thing you get in exchange are stars for unlocking stuff and those seem dependent on grade, not score. It's a grind incidentally: songs cost between 30 and 50 stars and you get 7 from Solo Play SSs on Hard. Multiplay's worthless: the only interaction you get with the other players is seeing them at the beginning and at the results screen, and you get fewer stars for the same consumable cost. (my one play had me get #2 and 4 stars, so unless #1 got 8 stars, it's a ripoff, and if you do, then it's a gamble regardless)
Mmph, I want to support the official products, but not when they're this lacking!

That's a very complete review Nico, thanks! I want to add some gameplay details:
- Doubles increase combo by 2 (and so on).
- Long notes sticks to the initial press (if you get a good, you get an all good long note).
The game feels like an O2JAM ripoff to me. And matchmaking was super broken in my experience.

Well, this game still sucks, but at least they're trying. Now you can select your prefered layout before playing a song
