i loved punk o matic 1. It was so simple but there was no variety between songs which made it boring after making 2 different songs. But overall i liked the system, click to change a number, each number assigned to a different riff/rhythm
punk o matic 2 takes that system, and makes it more complicated, just because all the different riffs are overwhelming (yes i read the description i know how to make it easier for begginngers) Of course this opens more oppurtunity for better songs BUT...i just personally find it hard to get used to...=/
If you have a slow computer the experience is not a good one. Its incrediby laggy, even if you turn animation, quality and concert lights off. So i couldn't really have fun playing it and listening to a song sounded like each bar was a different song because of a 0.5 second lag between.
Also it's IMPOSSIBLE to play a concert with a slow computer, unless you start to memorize the pattern and your on easy. Then for a while(if your lucky) you can hold a 6 note streak. But you can't time for shit with lag.
While im on the topic of the concert, i think the playing idea was original. But kind of hard to play with. I can't imagine it on insane! We all respect you trying to change it up from the basic notes sliding down a line to hit, but maybe you should have stuck with that style, or atleast given the player the option to go between the two. Its just awkward.
But then again, this is a guy whos computer is laggging as he's fucking typing this lol. So maybe my review won't be very accurate
Overall, this game has a good set up, its not begginner friendly with overwhelming numbers of riffs, and if you have a slow computer, it takes alot away from the experience. I don't mean to blaim my somewhat bad review on my own lag but...its kinda come to that? I donno. I'll give ya an 8
wow this review was kinda all over the place
