Honorable Mention #1: Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X
Senior Reviews Editor Zhiqing Wan: Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA X is one of the most precise rhythm games in the market right now. Start panicking and mashing buttons, and you’ll end up failing the song requirements, or worse, miss out on unlocking a really cute outfit.
There’s a simple kind of enjoyment to be had from organizing your outfits, your medley of songs for the brilliant events in Project DIVA X, and nailing everything together with the utmost precision in your rhythmic button presses. Rhythm games are a bit of a niche genre in the western market, and Project DIVA X does come with some unnecessary visual novel elements too. But give Miku a chance, and you might just find yourself enamored by the earnestness of these happy-go-lucky virtual idols too.
