Not in a millions years did i think i would ever own this game, let alone review. And yet...here we are my friends.
DropMix is a dynamic and fast-paced music-mixing game. Players blend popular songs from award-winning artists to create mind-blowing mixes. Get together and face-off with friends to master the mix.
The DropMix Music Gaming System includes the DropMix board and 60 DropMix cards, and the free downloadable app controls the game. The included DropMix cards let you mix songs from top artists, including: Bruno Mars, Childish Gambino, Disturbed, Ed Sheeran, Imagine Dragons, Sam Hunt, Sia, The Weeknd, and more. There are also Discover Packs and Playlist Packs to expand the mix possibilities with more DropMix cards.
The game has 3 different modes of play:
The cards are above average quality but do tend to scuff a lot. You can sleeve them, but unless you rip them, it will not affect play. There is a chip in the middle of the card that enables the songs, so as long as that does not get messed with your ok. The board you lay the cards on is an excellent piece of tech, and I would expect that with Harmonix involved. It is important to note that you will need a phone or tablet with android or ios to play.
There are so many things to love about this game. First off there is a deck building game in here. Clash mode is all about trying to play the right cards at the right time and not so much making the songs. And the special cards (the black and white cards I showed earlier) have an impact on what and when you play your cards. If you get into the game enough, you will find yourself making custom decks. I will say that you will have to purchase more packs if you play the game a lot. And considering the game was just dropped from $100 to $50, It's a much more manageable hit to the wallet.
The party mode for me was forgettable, but I could see it being used if you had a bunch of friends over and were taking turns trying to beat the high score.
And that bring us to freestyle mode. I watched my teenage kids mess with this mode for three hours. These kids never do anything for more than 3 hours except sleep. I could not believe how involved there were in changing the beats and the vocal track. And you can also save your mixes to your phone app.
I am 100% confident this will be the most played game of the year in my house.
