MTV Music Generator is another sleeper, but unlike a regular sleeper this game shines in almost every department. Although it may lack some fancy graphics, the game makes up for everything due to its marvelous gameplay, variety, and sound. MTV Music Generator is a must have, don't be without.
Skip the Music Jam and the Video Creation parts of MTV Music Generator, they're useless. The real core of this game is an amazing music making program. The video library is massive, and the utilitarian feel and ease of composition is nearly flawless. For the most part the sound effects and beats are great to use and easy to paste into the music score, or to alter. I got a big gas out of sampling music from my favorite albums, and I also had a lot of fun simply listening to different song variations. If Codemasters doesn't send me another copy of this game in the next week, I'm going to go buy it. I highly recommend it.
Personally, I think that this is an absolutely amazing music creating package, which I whole-heartedly recommend to anyone who was/is thinking of buying it. It's good fun, and you will without a doubt, get really involved when your masterpiece comes together. But, if like me, you start to get carried away with it, you will notice the one flaw the game has: - It runs out of memory quickly. But I think that's down to the PSX and not the game!
Music 2000 är tänkt att vara ett underhållande tidsfördriv för sådana som gillar musik, men inte har tillgång till riktig musikutrustning. Och som ett sådant fungerar det förvånansvärt bra. Så fort man har börjat att plöja igenom de färdiga riffen sprids en skaparglädje genom hela kroppen, och så snart ens första låt börjar ta form blir man besatt. När riffen sedan till sist blir en aning långtråkiga gör sig samplingsmöjligheten påmind, varpå ens låtar plöstligt antar helt nya dimensioner.
Toujours aussi agréable et simple à utiliser, Music 2000 s'étoffe encore de nombreuses possibilités en gardant tous les atouts de la version précédente. Les amateurs du premier retrouveront donc sans peine et avec autant de joie ce millésime 2000.
Game industry News (GiN)
With video-game shelves stocked with worthless sequels, badly-used famous licenses and poorly conceived games to begin with, MTV Music Generator is a refreshing addition to just about any gamer's library. The game rates a final 4 GiN Gems, and wit dat 'DJ Grandmaster Sexay' says: Peace, out.
Hormis plusieurs nouveaux échantillons sonores rock et quelques options encore plus pointues pour les DJ's en herbe, la principale nouveauté, ici, demeure le Bœuf Musical, un modèle de convivialité. Avec celui-ci, jusqu'à quatre joueurs peuvent créer ensemble un morceau en temps réel, en appuyant sur les touches de la manette (auxquelles on a attribué un type de riff). Fous rires garantis !
Overall, this is a great game. Don't be frightened by the fact that it has "MTV" in its title. There are endless hours of songs to create. One suggestion I make is to buy a multi memory card. I have a 32 in 1 memory card. The songs can take up to all 15 blocks, so you might run out of space with a card.
For its price, MTV: Music Generator is worth it. It's sort of like the run on Casio keyboards in the early '80s - every house seemed to have one, and most owners didn't have a clue what to do with them. You pounded out basic songs and threw in some drumbeats. This program is more advanced than that and quite a bit more fun. If you're a serious musician and tool around on your PC, you're probably going to be frustrated or bored, as the RAM is obviously limited and the library is nothing you haven't seen or used before. And frankly, there are better libraries elsewhere. But for PlayStation owners who just want a fun, addictive music-making tool, you'll likely be pretty amused, if not downright mesmerized. At least long enough to justify the cost.
