"Inspired by 1930s production notes for the original Fantasia, Music Evolved is billed as a direct sequel to the Fantasia films rather than a rehash or a tie-in. The player becomes an apprentice to Sorcerer Yen Sid, who you probably remember from Fantasia’s famous Sorcerer’s Apprentice sequence… or Kingdom Hearts. There are two kinds of people in the world. Teaming up with another apprentice named Scout, you go on a saccharine adventure to rid the world of a music-drowning force called the Noise. That’s about as deep as the plot gets, and Music Evolved certainly won’t be drawing players on the merit of its story, which can be completed in about five hours. Still, the idea of a rhythm game with even a semblance of a plot is novel, so points for originality at least."
