YMMV: Jubeat
Online matching...four person play.

Final Tune. Ready...GO.

  • Broken Base: jubeat saucer. A major part of the appeal comes from the massive songlist and constant additions of new content. A major part of the criticism stems from its monthly deletion of songs.
  • Even Better Sequel: Despite its monthly removal of songs, jubeat saucer proved to be quite popular due to the constant addition of new songs. By the end of saucer's life, it had over 500 songs, or 2.5 times as many songs as jubeat copious has.
  • Marth Debuted in Smash Bros.: jukebeats's 27th KONAMI DLC pack has the song "Amalgamation", what's notable is that the song in question is a boss from Dance Dance Revolution X3, which until that particular installment, averted No Export for You.
  • Internet Backdraft: The Miley Cyrus pack seems to get quite a bit of this.
  • Scrappy Mechanic:
    • jubeat saucer was infamous for its "song swap" system; every month, some songs were cut out while other songs are introduced or revived. The idea was to thwart Complacent Gaming Syndrome by forcing people to play different songs rather than the same ones over and over, but the mechanic still made some players unhappy. However, as of February 1, 2014, almost all previously-removed songsnote  have been revived, and song swap was NOT added back to jubeat saucer fulfill.
    • After selecting a song on an online-enabled machine, you must wait 30 seconds for other players to join in. If you just wanna play by yourself, this can be a hassle.
  • That One Attack: "Riot of Color" ends with a brutal run of 24th notes that requires superhuman note-reading ability and hand speed to do. And because it comes at the end, it can be a real score killer, since it can take a good chunk out of your possible 100,000 bonus points with very few notes afterwards to get them back.
  • That One Sidequest:
    • In jubeat copious, unlocking "[E]" required getting an EXCELLENT on a level 10 chart.
    • Even worse, "Red Goose" in the same game required that you and three other players in the same match get an EXCELLENT on a level 10 chart. In other words, you could fail to unlock "Red Goose" because of a mistake that is entirely not your fault.
  • They Just Didn't Care: STELLAR WIND's Extreme chart is the just the Advanced chart rotated 90 counter-clockwise and with one note removed. It's still rated 1 level higher than Advanced. Well, it really deserves the higher rating. That turn made it a lot more awkward to play.

Result: FAILED.
