It isn't everyday that you get a chance to defeat the final boss of a game less than a minute after you start. Then again, Retro/Grade isn't exactly what I consider your everyday game. The brainchild of 24 Caret Games, this PSN exclusive meshes the...

An experiment in the combination of two drastically different genres, Retro/Grade hits its mark. The gameplay is interesting and the soundtrack will stick in your head long after you put the controller down. Unfortunately, the nature of its replay...

A driving electronic soundtrack and solid gameplay support – but don't quite bolster – the extremely short-lived Retro/Grade, now available for

Lovingly assembled and enjoyable while it lasts, Retro/Grade is ultimately too meagre a package to be fully recommended. Rhythm game fans will get some mileage out of its solid gameplay and its unique wrapper helps the basic rhythm gameplay feel new,...

A great deal has changed for the rhythm genre over the past decade. After experiencing a period of outrageous boom, things have been moving rather decidedly in the opposite direction for the past few years. A precipitous drop-off occurred in 2009, when...

Retro/Grade is one of the most clever games I’ve played. Disguised as a sidescrolling shmup, Retro/Grade is more Amplitude than it is R-Type, although it requires more specific screen recognition than either, which adds a tiny taste of Ikaruga.

Until now, Amplitude has been without a doubt my favorite music game, ever. Retro/Grade scratches that very same itch, but its unique marriage of high-concept premise and classic rhythm gameplay make it an all-around more satisfying experience. Its...

Dancing, playing guitar, piloting a ship through alien gunfire, etc. Sometimes you just need to put a little faith into rhythm if you want to succeed.

If you are a rhythm game fanatic, you owe it to yourself to check out Retro/Grade. It doesn't have the charm of PaRappa, the hummable tracklist of Gitaroo Man, or the addictive quality of Elite Beat Agents, but it's a nice shot in the arm for a genre...

If you took a rhythm game like Rock Band and a shoot 'em up like…

The core gameplay is smart and the music is catchy, but Retro/Grade feels spread thin everywhere else. From repeating the same 10-levels to reusing venues in challenge mode to having a Trophy list consisting of just Bronze Trophies, Retro/Grade is a...

This shooter/rhythm game hybrid may sound odd, but it is pure fun. Our full review.

Unique combination ; Great songs ; Challenge mode is addictive

Not enough tracks/stages ; Confusing at first

Retro/Grade innovates on rhythm gaming, but it just doesn't last long enough.

The problem is that I didn't play it for that long. Ten tracks just isn't enough to carry a rhythm game, even an eight-dollar one. The replay value is just so depressingly low. I'd almost say you should get Retro/Grade in the hopes that your...

Retro/Grade is built on a unique idea that simply isn't explored in an exciting enough way or to a sufficient depth to keep you interested for long.

Great art style ; Good idea

Limited soundtrack ; Very short campaign

Retro/Grade is built on a unique idea that simply isn't explored in an exciting enough way or to a sufficient depth to keep you interested for long. It's a shame, then, but there just isn't enough of a reason to spend much time with Retro/Grade.
