Xonic is a pretty good spiritual successor to DJMAX series. It features tons of good music, or at least music which DJMAX players find familiar. I think the musicians have managed to rise quality a lot. Most songs also now follow current trends which is nice.
The usual suspects like Makou, Mr. Funky, M2U, Tsukasa, Electronic Boutique, 3rd Coast and so on deliver some of their best songs and the new guys manage to insert few enjoyable surprises into the mix as well. However some of the songs from the new guys leave that little something to wish for. And it's easy to accuse some veterans of falling into "doing the usual thing" category.
The gameplay in Xonic isn't as honed as it could be. I also found physical button control scheme difficult to adjust to and the touchscreen controls were bit inaccurate. I eventually settled into those touchscreen controls because it felt more like it's supposed to be played. I also think that the key sounding in Xonic doesn't really continue with the tradition.
It's also a good thing for experienced players that the game just throws at you all the mechanics at once but it would probably be better to have more steps before all mechanics are thrown at the player if this aims to be slightly more casual game.
I feel Xonic was made to be slightly more casual game than DJMAX. And if asked that would be my main reason to recommend DJMAX Technica TUNE over Xonic. However if you just want to sit down, listen good music and have fun this is the game for you.
Visually the game is mostly as good as this group of developers is know for. Most songs in Xonic however don't have the DJMAX style MVs but instead they feature a custom animated background "images". I feel that something important is lost with that transition to more simple "abstract" backgrounds. Also there are some really minor UI issues like proper scrollbars are missing (even after the patch) but I'm just nitpicking now.
PS Vita has many good rhythm-action games but Xonic manages to stand on its own as a game somewhere between DJMAX and games like Project Diva and likes such as IA/VT. I'll give more weight to the OST since that is the most important part of a rhythm game and my recommendation.
Great game with awesome music. Very addictive, I'm playing it non-stop.
One of the better rhythm games on the Vita, however I would recommend DJ Max Technika Tune more, if you haven't jumped on that yet.
It's a solid and generous rythm game, but I'm not fond of the playlist.
from the DJMAX Developers, SUPERBEAT XONiC Definitively brings n awesome rhythm game experience par to nowadays standards, I can't stop playing it, with over 50 songs and upcoming DLC, it's my 2015 GOTY
