Symphonica is an entirely new breed of music game. Its breezy controls and tightly integrated gameplay give you a taste of what it’s like to be an up-and-coming conductor via a wholly unique gaming experience. Give Chapters 0 through 3 a try for absolutely free!
Featuring character design by Chinatsu Kurahana.
Einsatz, the city of music, founded by the legendary conductor Carlos and his companions and brought to where it is today by its citizens, the Audience. Talented musicians from around the world flock here with dreams of performing in King Hall at the top of Concerto Tower, which stands tall over the city.
Takt has come to Einsatz to pursue his own dream of becoming the world’s best conductor. Little did he know that he’d be in charge of the ramshackle Fayharmonic, an orchestra on the verge of collapse. Leaning on Takt as their last hope, the Fayharmonic and their new conductor set their sights on King Hall.
Thus begins the tale of Takt and his companions in song!
> Game Highlights
1.Not Your Usual Music Game
The lack of specially designated tapping “hot spots” gives you more freedom, allowing you to feel more of what it’s like to be a conductor.
Never-before-seen features like tempo shifts and real-time, control-linked volume changes put a fresh new spin on the music game genre (patent pending).
2.Tightly Integrated Gameplay and Story
Unlike games that let you pick and choose only the songs you like, Symphonica puts you in the role of a conductor honing the skills of his musicians. In this novel approach to the genre, the music game portion is organically integrated with the story, so you’ll be drawn in by the gripping plot while performing stunning classical pieces.
3.Go Even Further
Perform at higher score levels to increase your orchestra’s Fame and add new pieces to your repertoire.
Plus, once you’ve cleared a given song with a certain number of points, you can test your skill with a more challenging version of the song. It’s perfect for experienced music game aficionados!
4.A Treasure Trove of Classical Masterpieces
Featuring nearly 50 instantly recognizable songs (20 full performances and approximately 30 rehearsal pieces), including Dvorak’s New World Symphony and Beethoven’s Fifth. You might not necessarily know a piece’s name, but once you hear a few notes, you’ll be humming the whole thing!

Good little music game
I always enjoy good music games and this throws a decent story line into it as well. I would only have wished they used real music rather than synthesized. But I might just be picky. Other than that I really enjoyed the variety of classics they used and the controls were good yet a bit difficult to master at first and don't use bluetooth headphones there is a lag. Definitely buy if you enjoy music games. Only wish there were some animations to go with the pictures.
Great and addicting, though it is...
A bit pricey. This game is surprisingly really fun and does have a nice storyline with it. It is pricey but I do think it is worth it but it wouldn't hurt to lower the price a little.
The art is really well done and what is what first attracted me to play.
The gameplay itself is fun though it was a little tricky for me since I didn't understand a few of the notes(not sure if there is an actual tutorial with all the scores.)
Way too expensive for the content
The game is very fun - I'll give it that. The story is interesting enough, and the art is very pretty, although whoever made font decisions should really get a smack.
BUT, $15 for a game that lasts just a few short hours and could be easily played through in less than a day is inexcusable, even for Square Enix. At least their other games have either hours and hours of gameplay to back its' price, or have a nostalgic appeal.
If you have the money, go ahead. It's a good game. Just be aware that you are seriously overpaying.
