If you are looking for a rhythm game that involves tapping a screen, and has vocaloid covers/music, you are in the right place.
This game has a very good rhythm game inside of it, with tapping that usually registers and with challenging charts as you move up the difficulty. The difficulty does spike I think between hard -> expert but it is just a matter of moving up levels slowly (or brute forcing it like my sister did, but I digress). The rhythm game is a very nice experience on both mobile and tablet, but I believe a tablet is better for the harder difficulty, however you should take that with a grain of salt as that is just my opinion! Playing on a wide phone is not a pleasant experience for me, since I have small hands, but playing on a phone is not a bad experience or anything, I believe the game does work quite well.
The characters in this game are very well-written in my opinion, even the characters you may grow to not like. I personally don't really like Mafuyu as a person but her struggles and her character, for what it is, is well-written. The 5 groups in this game all have their each seperate story with 20 episodes in it, which you unlock by playing songs with cards of the characters in their respective groups, or by reading area conversations in the overworld. The episodes are not very long and give a good introduction of each group and character individually, with the event stories then developing each character with their respective struggles and dynamics with other characters. There have been many events so it is quite hard at this stage to read all of them, I would recommend to read the main story of the group you like the look of the most, and get to know those characters. If any of them appeal to you, then you can read the event stories surrounding that character. There are also side stories for each card which can be unlocked using in game items, so if you are interested in a certain character, these side stories are a good way to know them better.
The gacha system is also alright, it is easy to tell whether you have a 3* or 4* based on colour, 3* means yellow and 4* means purple. The indication of a "flip" is also shown clearly, with the floor that Miku steps on turning into a purple circle instead of rainbow or the floor becoming transparent with the purple circle. The rate of a 4* being 3% isn't that bad in my opinion, and there will be occasional Dream Festivals, where the 3% becomes 6%, with special limited cards as well.
The cards in this game are also very well drawn, they have a consistent anime style and are very high quality. In JP, as of August 2022 when I'm writing this, the cards have been slowly implementing a newer style with the anime style, with nice colours and illustrations. The card quality in consistent throughout all 4*s and even the 3* cards are still very nice to use if you don't have a 4*.
Grinding for crystals in this game is not bad once you know where to look, (I'd recommend looking up some youtube videos before you start) and in the early game it is very rewarding, however once you reach Rank 50 and have played most of the songs with full combo's, crystals become much harder to get. It takes much longer to rank up and playing songs you don't like doesn't appeal to many people. Fortunately, in the JP version, the music library is much vaster than the Global version at the time of writing this.
If you want a version which has newer events, more songs and a more updated game, then I would recommend the JP version. Even if you can't speak japanese, there are probably translations out there for the game, and the UI of the game isn't that hard to understand. If you don't want to play the game because of the language, then the Global version is for you. It is currently catching up to JP in events but it has many songs and gives you the same experience. There are many instagram accounts that regularly update and post about Project Sekai on both versions and there are youtube guides out there in case you are confused or need a preview of the game.
I hope this review helped! ♡
