Frederic: Resurrection of Music is a rhythm game. You play as Chopin, a classical composer raised from the dead, as you travel and restore musical decency in a world plagued by overproduced pop.
Pro Enjoyable remixes of old classical music
Old classical musical compositions are reimagined as upbeat and pounding tracks that compliment the rhythm based gameplay well. Each and every song is an interesting and modern remix of a classical Chopin song. It's pretty neat to hear the classical pieces rearranged for modern listeners.
Pro Simple, easy to grasp gameplay
As is common in the rhythm genre, each level consists of notes falling from the top of the screen as you attempt to furiously tap along to the beat. Your piano is laid out front and center with an emphasis on big keys, so hitting the right note at the right time isn't harder than it needs to be. After you've correctly played each song, you'll be whisked away to the next location where you'll watch a cutscene and then play your way through a new song.
Pro Hilarious and unique premise
You'll be playing as long dead musical composer Frederic Chopin, risen from the dead in order to rid the world of greedy producers and overproduced, soulless pop music. It's up to you to show everyone what real music sounds like by traveling the world and dueling other musicians using upbeat versions of old classical compositions. Each unique location you visit is backed by story-driven cutscenes filled with silly characters, humor, and pop culture references.
Pro Very approachable for all skill levels
Despite your skill level, you can still get as much (or as little) of a challenge as you crave. Easy is very easy, and a great introduction to learning the songs and nuances of gameplay. Even with loads of mistakes, you'll still be progressing the story. As you increase the difficulty level, the curve is very steep and each new level brings an increasing challenge that is sure to satisfy even the most devoted rhythm fan.
Con The cutscenes are not interesting and tend to drag on
The cutscenes are often overly long and drawn out. The voice acting is mostly poor. The writing, while charming and humorous at times, can be cliche or laughable. They look good in their hand drawn style, but there is very little animation to hold your attention. Overall, they can be quite boring to sit through due to how they tend to drag on.
