The Game Guy
In 1940, Walt Disney’s idea of “Fantasia” melded the sound of classical music with the imagery of cartoon animation. The result was an inspired creation of sight, sound and wonder that remains one of his most fondly remembered creations. The concept wasn’t fully appreciated in its era, but was decades ahead of its time.
Now Harmonix, the visionaries behind the “Rock Band” series, attempt to create the next generation of “Fantasia” experience. “Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved” looks to combine music with the interactive nature of the video game. The idea has the added pressure of being one of only marquee titles for the Xbox One’s motion sensing camera, the Kinect. Not only is this game as unique as the movie that inspired it, it may just become the primary reason to own a Kinect on the Xbox One.
