AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!! Can I just say that this game is so fun I’ll play it over and over again? Why? Because it’s a rhythmic game and although I completely suck at is (yes, I got a friggen C in level 3 of EASY) just playing the songs gives you a sense of satisfaction. This game uses the buttons [X] [∆] [□] and any of the arrow keys. It comes out as a cross.
This game includes all your Idol Songs, Audition songs, Duets, Happy Songs, A and S class songs AND OF COURSE!! Your MAJILOVE1000% album!! Unfortunately it doesn’t have ‘First impact, recipe’ but oh well. =3
Oh I was SOOOOOO happy~
At the start of each song, one of the characters say the name of the song and then says ‘Music, Start!’ when you press [O]. Now, I should tell you all, it is possible to unlock Satsuki (HUR HUR >U>) and Hayato. OMG When you play the duets/A/S class songs or Tokiya/Natsuki songs, you can change the character that’s going to be on the left of your screen. BAHAHAHAHA!! Hayato is HI.LA.RI.OUS! You just have to play this to know what I mean xD
SO, I’ve unlocked all the songs by completing each level in Easy and getting either an A or a ぎりぎりS rank. The ONLY song I was able to get a perfect in (which is indicated by that a little UtaPuri crown next to your S rank) is Tokiya’s ‘.星屑☆Shall we dance’. ;A;
It’s hard for me OK?! I can’t just button mash like I do with Stepmania because if you miss a note, you lose 1 ‘note’ and if you press the wrong note, you’ve missed the note so you lose 2 ‘notes’. For every COOL you get, it’s 20 points. Every GOOD is 10 and every POOR (i.e. You missed it or pressed the wrong button) 10 is subtracted. Your final score is actually all the above added then divided by 10. JUST TO MAKE IT HARDER TO EARN MUNNIEZ TO BUY 女装 CUSTOMISED STUFF FOR EVERY CHARACTER.
Ah, but if you don’t get any POOR during the song, you get extra points, how much depends on what song! =3 If you get all COOL it’s usually in the hundreds and you get that little crown next to your S =33 It looks so good. I felt so proud (even if it WAS EASY – Level 1). Depending on what your rank is, the character that you chose to have on the left will comment. Also, when you play the game, if you can somehow move your eyes away from the score (it’s so hard to do that), you’ll see the guys’ expressions change. The DERP face appears a few times xDD At least it looks like that to me.
A 50 note combo will get you a pink heart appearing for each note you press COOL-y until you hit 100. After that, it’s 3 hearts and then after 200 it’s just this BIG PINK HEART that fades in and out…kinda. xD These ‘special effects’ can be changed when you buy it from the shop when you’ve unlocked it.
With the MP (Music Points? CBF to check my PSP right now LOL) you earn by playing the songs, you can go into the shop and buy clothes, special effects when you press notes, backgrounds of the ‘music score’ and actual song. The one I’m eyeing right now is the女装 and pyjamas which is friggen 10,000MP and 20,000MP EACH respectively, and there are 7 guys. OTL
Each time you get an A or S rank in the first 21 individually sung songs, you get a heart =3. It is your reward (ご褒美) and Oh MAH GAD! It’s so cheesy and half the time I don’t even know if Haruka is there with them listening to them say these CHEEZY CORN lines or they’re just talking to thin air. Haha, right, speaking of that, Cecil (as much as I love you), is so random. The first ご褒美 I unlocked was of him, on that island, wishing you were there with him. He wished he could just spirit you away to another world with him~ xD
Haha, the TROLOL screenies I took =33
Now, I haven’t unlocked ALL of the ご褒美 so I can’t say that the others are going to be like that but there are 9 for each guy. Pass EASY on all 3 levels, you get one. Pass HARD on all 3 levels you get another. Pass PRO and you get the ‘final’ one. There are 3 songs per guy you have to play through, hence 9 videos. I’m going to need my friend to man the arrow button on my PSP if I have ANY hope of finishing these songs. xD OR…like how Hinano said, I could just get a C 30 times and I’d unlock it…OTL No thanks, I’ll aim for a B and play it 10 times or just and A/S rank…
There’s also a challenge mode somewhere (can’t remember) and it’s 3 songs, the Repeat, AA and SS game song…I think. They’re all on pro level. In the Music Library, the theme song for UtaPuri Music is there for you to play~
Overall, yes I’ll say it again, I. LOVE. THIS. GAME! If you ignore the fanservice they give with the ‘SHOP’ and the ご褒美 I’d say anyone who likes a rhythmic game would like this game. Most songs are good from UtaPuri~ =DD I still get goosebumps listening to MajiLOVE1000%, MIrai Chizu and Natsuki’s songs. xDD
That’s all from me for now~ Sorry for the short review ^^; (cries at my own lack of dedication)
