Great setting, great ost, great art direction, great cast (i fucking love how dumbass and proactive the mc is) and a amazing and original gameplay!
It really makes you feel like a rockstar fighting against a awful big company that represents the worst of capitalism!!! Still, there's room for growth in a sequel, specially in the boss fight department (PLEASE I NEED A SEQUEL AND I WANT TO DESTROY CAPITALISM ITSELF IN THAT)

Some of the parry fights were annoying but overall this was a game full of life the music was amazing the cast was funny the art was amazing one of the best games of 2023.

Very unique and interesting game with fun visuals and style but unfortunately combos are not my thing :/

This game has so many qualities it is an insult on the indusrty as a whole : Perfect 10-12 hour duration, no grinding, novelty around every corner and even after beating the game, vibrant and colourful artstyle, excellent and sharp gameplay etc etc...
The emphasis on rythm was particularly interesting because everything in the game just underlines it, the environement reacts to the beat, the enemies attack in sync, so at the end of the game you just find yourself completely synchronised with the game and it's an excellent feeling. The story is charming, doesn't take itself seriously but stays focused enough, I have pretty much nothing bad to say, maybe a locking camera system would have been nice for certain fights, especially for boss fights.
