I have played since the release. Competitive player. I have multiple event Top 3s including 1st Rank for Ishimaru Chika (SUPER GiRLS) in Tanabata and Utagawa Sakura (Last Idol) in Pickup 3.
I started as F2P player, but made some bad decision during event that forced me to buy some diamonds. As for now my total spending is 6960 JPY.
Laddering totally depends on your chosen member. Some are crazy AF. Some are totally lax. I got 1st in Utagawa without spending any money. Even before I ever spent any money, I could get Top 3 on each Kanazawa Yuuki (SUPER GiRLS) 2 times and Fujii Yui (URA-KiSS) once.
Graphics: Bad cuttings, but some idols look uberly cute in various poses.
Sound: Love the dialogue cues.
Gameplay: Pretty standard. But big improvement compared to Girls Beat Stage.
Story: Template, but some parts are modified for each member, sometimes including local dialect.
Value: You can play it for free and still be competitive - at least if you start early...
Though I am not fan of datesims this game is solid and fun. Mostly for Jpop fans not as mainstream AKB48 or Nogizaka46.
P.S.: Free to play players be warn focus in the idol you like the most because it gets harder to get story unlock coins soon after.
over all it a good idol game, but there's so many similar story betweens idol, it lack of originality in the story.
and for some reason I can't play the event song all the time
if anybody know, please tell me
japanese idol start in the 60s with the first idol group johnnys
still not got ruka ssr :(
note timing sucks
I hope they add more groups like with Girlsbeatstage!
HIATUS from GI 'cause FB Prob
To be honest, the graphics inside this game is truly amazing. This became one of my reason wanted to play the game and trying to play rpg adventure again (after Tales of Berseria) I've always played rhythm game since I'm not that good playing this kind of game. But Genshin Impact really shocked me. Besides Tales of Berseria, I ever play some rpg with zombie theme that I really loved to, but it seems that game is deleted and gone, I never play those kind of game again. Anyway! If you ask me between Mondstat and Liyue, I prefer Mondstat a lot! I love the way the building and the scenery became, like Europe, a lots of stairs, and long also wide place. I always wanted to live somewhere like that, close with river or sea, and could see Milky Way 🥰 Gak bisa main krn aku pake akun FB buat yg add dan pgn co-op, please chat dl ya pas aku online, beneran gatau siapa aja itu yg add aku beginner dan agak pemalu, jd klo boleh, chat aja langsung Appreciate it! Have fun 🎶
