Using Kinect players can aim using their hands and clap to change weapons, though traditional controllers can also be used. You can use additional controllers to provide external vibration and during the gameplay adjusts the music to the actions and movements of the players. On PlayStation, you can choose to use the motion-sensitive Move controllers for a similar experience.
Similar to a collection of music albums, the game features 5 levels, called Archives, each with a different visual theme. These are; Matrix, Evolution, Beauty, Passion, and Journey.
