I dun get it
I get it, I really do, but why do I get the "CHEAP game" vibe throughout the entire video?
It's still interesting and awkward.
A pretty good writeup about the game's mechanics via Destructoid. Still a bit complicated, but at least I have an idea about the gameplay.
Now that I understand it I must say it does look interesting. The voice after every command is something I'm not too fond of though.

It really is one of those games you can't watch in order to get into it- sure, if you're already into rhythm or RTS games, you'd be initially interested. As a person who leans more towards Visual Novels and RPGs, it took more convincing from me. I played a few rounds, became very frustrated because of how complicated it was, then sat back and reviewed everything I learned and picked it right up. It's a game that's very difficult to play without a tutorial (which are available in the game at the player's choice!), but once you understand everything, it's quite enjoyable.
You have to do more thinking than in a rhythm game- building up Excellent combos by tapping to the beat adds warriors to build for battle, gives you an array of bonuses and experience whether you win or lose a stage. You're constantly working on the field to battle- at first it feels foreign and, for me, I was tapping the screen at every four beats or so- but once you get the feel for it you'll be tapping and moving very quickly, almost instinctively. I can explain the actual system in more detail for anyone, but as the Destructoid article was posted and they did a good job, I won't worry about it for now, haha.
