Excerpt: : This game follows the story of space reporter Ulala and her quest to uncover the mystery behind a hypnotic dance craze. Along the way, Ulala not only has to fight the Morolian aliens, but rival reporters as well, in dance-offs to help rescue the hypnotized humans. Levels play out on spaceships and then switch to other locations as well, giving the true sense of actually hunting for the root of the problem.
Excerpt: At first glance, the story that's inserted between the simple rhythm tests of Space Channel 5: Special Edition seems a simple battle of good versus evil. In the first game, an evil alien menace—the Morolians—threatens the Earth by forcing its population to dance uncontrollably. In the second game, a shadowy group known as the "Rhythm Rogues" plans a similar fate for the entire galaxy.
Excerpt: America seems to always be left in the dark when it comes to Japanese quirky titles. Space Channel 5 would qualify as one most definitely. Released in the year 2000, Space Channel 5 was praised by the press, and it seems, largely ignored by the gaming public. Agetec brings back from the dead Ulala, a space reporter on the news program UlalaÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s SwinginÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Report Show.
Excerpt: In a gaming universe full of robots with giant guns and ultimate wresting fighters, is there any room for love and dancing� or the shiny, happy adventures of a purple-haired space reporter named Ulala?
Conclusion: Having now come full circle, the crux, that’s crux not crutch of the review is that you should buy this game. It is fun and you will play it often, even when you have completed it. Music games have never been this good.
Conclusion: Remember my preview? Remember how much I wanted this game to come out? Well, it is! And I have to tell you, it is AMAZING! From start to finish, Space Channel 5 (SC5) will fill you with colour, joy and music! This game has so many moments that will either want to make you laugh out loud or completely frustrate the hell out of you. From your dance-off with Evila, to the thing that comes out of the TV, you will love every moment of this game. However, SC5 is a short game.
Conclusion: Si vous possédez une Dreamcast ou une PS2 (même si cette version est moins bonne), et que vous aimez les rythm games, jetez vous sur ce jeu, déjà entré au panthéon de la culture vidéoludique. Tetsuya Mizoguchi (auteur aussi de Rez) a depuis quitté Sega, pour monter son propre studio et, on espère qu’il nous offrira une troisième partie, car un jeu de cette trempe ne se laisse pas.
