Ratings and Reviews
The most fun I’ve had with a rhythm game
Arcaea is absolutely worth the money I’ve spent on it. Most songs have a play style that feels completely separate from the others. Levels can be incredibly difficult, but always seem to be doable. Even when they are ridiculous, the music is good enough to keep you coming back for more (I’d go as far as to say that the best music goes with the hardest songs). The game updates fairly regularly, and adds free songs, in addition to packs that you can pay for. Unfortunately, none of the free songs come close to the level of difficulty presented in the paid songs. The 3D space allows for really beautiful level design, and this translates into the song feeling amazing to play. Playing on a tablet makes the game easier, but playing on a smaller screen is still possible, even on difficult levels. In terms of improvement, I would really like to see an option to have arcs fade out instead of turn red when you mess up, like before the most recent patch. The bright red can be very distracting on more difficult levels and cause you to lose more notes. I would also like to see a way to restart levels faster, either through an option to require only 1 tap to pause, or even through a partner that has a skill that instantly restarts the level if you miss a note (for when you’re trying to full recall something). Finally, I want to see the story and characters developed more. My favorite level so far is Sheriruth. Keep up the good work!!
Ipad use recommended.
Now I would not consider myself as one of those master of Rhythm Games but I play a lot of Cytus, Deemo, and Voez (All Rayark) and I get many of Full Combos, Masters on songs, ect. But this is not a game you can get those with on a small screen. Now I have an Iphone 7+ and even that is not big enough (and no I have average sized fingers). In general I love the game. Unlike most, keeps you playing to earn songs though there are only 20 you can unlock without real money (an extra 6 if I remember with the DLC songs). However this game does have it’s issues. The ‘Advanced’ Settings has it to where you can adjust the Offset of the notes. It is determined by increments of five while in the ‘Basic’ settings the Note Speed can be adjusted to all numbers and even down to one tenth if needed. I’m trying to play this game with Air Pods but with the ‘Advanced’ setting set to where it will tell you if you’re on early or late seems to always be a bit off. I hope you can manage to adjust it to a smaller degree in the future but otherwise don’t use any sort of bluetooth headphones I suppose.
I’ll give it a flat Four Stars. A lot of Rhythm Games are easier on a bigger screen but this one can handicap you to the point where it’s unplayable if you have a small screen. And of course, it’s hard to get it right in terms of the right calibration but precision is what rhythm games are all about. Try and makes it as accurate as possible if you can.
Massive Pay Wall
This is one of the best rhythm games I have played on mobile. I even chose to make an account because I wanted to use more of the game’s features. However, soon after I realized I would have to pay real money in order to unlock more song packs (you are given one to start with). There is no way to earn the micro currency, memories, needed to unlock song packs in game either, so buying is truly the only option. This is very disappointing. I will be removing this game immediately from my iPad.
If you’re going to make a free to play game, the micro transactions should be optional, not required to unlock more content. Let the 3% of people you target to pay large amounts of money buy those and let the rest of us enjoy the game as we want to. Don’t lock content behind a pay wall with no in game way around it.
