Games Played 11/15/2008


Unison (2001)
Developer: Tecmo, Ltd.
Platform: PlayStation 2
Purchase Date: 2001

And you thought Guitar Hero was hard...

This is one hardcore rhythm game. Instead of merely matching different controller inputs appearing on screen, Unison forces you to memorize the commands for each of the songs found within. This may sound frustrating but it actually makes a lot of sense because the game tries to replicate the memorization process of dance choreography and the way the dual analogue sticks are moved to accomplish the dance movements feel natural. There's a fun storyline in the game too. I wish they would have left all of the Japanese soundtracks in the game during its localization because the English songs feel totally out of place here.

LIBRARY STATUS: 3 out of 5
