A good game for the series
this is my second time with an idolm@ster game (after the PSP version), and this game is not really far from the PSP one.

the main difference is you play as the idol rather than the producer and the game progresses in days rather in weeks. the audition part is a bit weird because you only roll the roulette instead of trying to appeall all the judges

the story is pretty good, I personally liked the Ryo's side of the game. If you understand japanese you will like the story.

so, if you're a fan of VN or simulation or a hybrid of the two, you would like this game

The best IDOL simulation game.
In game you are Producer. You can trainning your idol and change her Clothing. Your Idol will dance and Sing in Audition scene with 3D visual modelling.

Different from the other games...
...but still a worthwhile experience, if you are a fan of the games. You take the perspective of the idol this time around, rather than the producer. If you're new to the series, I'd say it's still worth starting on this one, as it is a (somewhat) cheaper alternative, but you will not have the same kind of experience that you would with the 360 games. Keep that in mind.

It's also worth noting, that if you're a little slow on Japanese, this version has no more auto-scroll text or timed decisions, as opposed to the 360 versions.

its pretty good
This game was my first foray into the idolm@ster series. I'm not a native japanese speaker so the story is a little daunting to me, but i like how the idols are all fully voiced but i wish everyone else was too it would help me understand more. Its pretty easy to navigate tho because there is english sprinkled about. The minigames are fun except for the lyrics one because i fail everytime >_

Story is decent but nothing special. Very few songs (10 per character). Fans of the series will find nothing they liked before here, and may even be upset at how some old characters are handled. Audition parts are extremely badly done and left me questioning their purpose; They seem to serve none aside from being route split points which could be done in a dozen other ways.

That being said, not a bad game. Ryou is fun to mess with.
