In my opinion, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva X is the worst game in the series. It’s definitely the easiest, since the ending medley took me a few attempts. This being due to the fact that they took the easiest parts of each hard song and put them together, creating a song with not that much difficulty. I bought the game hoping this one song will prove a challenge.
The only good thing about the game is that it introduces new songs, with songs from old games featuring in a few medleys. The way of getting new modules isn’t too bad either, but it’s so tedious. You can only get them in the cloud and not freeplay. I prefer freeplay because I don’t have to skip through speech and sit through loading screens to play the next song.
I know as soon as I have every module and accessory, I won’t be on the cloud ever again.
Unlike in the previous games in the series, there’s a storyline. Which I didn’t bother sitting through. I didn’t miss much. This made passing each song so tedious, since I’d have to sit/skip through unnecessary dialogue and be thrown back to the menu where I have to select the cloud, and then what cloud I want. Ugh. No thank you.
I doubt there are many diva fans that wanted a storyline anyway, since we play the game due to enjoying rhythm games and Vocaloid music. Maybe this is why they didn’t put too much effort in a storyline.
The only thing I can be grateful for is the fact that every song is unlocked on freeplay on every difficulty as soon as you’ve completed it in the cloud mode. I didn’t have to play every song on hard difficulty so I could play it on extreme, which I’m extremely grateful for since this saves me a ton of time.
The song list isn’t that great though, since it seems to lack as many songs as previous games in the series. There’s also the lack of old songs, and very few are used in medleys. Medleys are pretty awful, since I have to play the cool medley just to play Unhappy Refrain, but I’m stuck with songs I don’t like (except Tengaku, that’s okay). I wish there was a way to play the song on it’s own, since Unhappy Refrain has to be one of my favourite Miku songs in Project Diva.
