Pros: The classical music .
Cons: Your hand starts to hurt after one level and the voice acting .
Summary: i love this game.ijust thought id try it out,and i was surprised!!it was great!me and my friend love music games,like parappa the rapper. but this one is way more of a challenge,and more interesting.you cant really see the backround,but its really funny when you play bad (i.e.theres a lady named hannie and a guy named darlin,if you mess up,hannie starts beating him up!haha).a must buy for anyone who likes rhythym games!!!
Summary: I picked up this game for $4 at a used videogame store, not expecting that much, considering it was less than it would've cost me to rent a game at blockbusters. Boy was I surprised. The game play involves keeping up a tempo, while pointing directions with the directional pad from time to time and controling the volume, arguably the most frusterating in my mind. The balance between forte and piano is very delicate.
Summary: This is an original game in the rhythm-action genre: conducting classical music. The concept has been well executed but unfortunately the difficulty setting is is impossibly high. It would be hard enough if you simply had to tap a button in time to the music as the game is very unforgiving and will punish you for being milliseconds off the beat. In addition to this, however, you also have to introduce parts by hitting a directional button on certain beats.
Summary: Mad Maestro is a little gem that originally came from Japan and was thankfully released over in the UK some time later. Its foothold in the rhytm action genre is that its what button you press, its how hard you press it! With the DualShock controller, you'll be put in charge of an orchestra to perform various classical pieces in great environments that interacted with how well your doing.
Excerpt: Rhythm/Action Games are no strangers to the Playstation format. The whole thing was pretty much kicked off with Parappa the Rapper on PS1, and games like Dance Stage, Parappa 2, Frequency and Space Channel 5 have perpetuated the genre. Mad Maestro falls into this category of game quite easily, the basic idea is simple, carry a beat and let the music flow, this isn't quite as straightforward though. Let's start at the beginning though, Mad Maestro has a plot, of sorts.
Pros: Well presented, easily accesible, good variety of ability scales .
Cons: Not exactly High - octane stuff . Simple graphics
Summary: I bought up this game having played Parappa the Rapper on the PS1 and Dance Stage and Guitar Freaks in the arcades. There's always been something about this type of game, where the player actively becomes involved in the music that just hits the right note with me (Sorry). So when I got home and loaded this up, I was far from disappointed, especially when this goes so far beyond anything of it's type that I've played in terms of subtlety and addictiveness.
