Frequency friggin’ rocks! As one of my friends put it, it’s like an addiction that you just can’t get enough of, even if you’ve played the game a gazillion times.88Gamezilla!
A simple but challenging rhythm game with unique gameplay and one of the best game soundtracks ever.87GameSpot
The music selection kicks ass. No Doubt, Powerman 5000, Orbital, Crystal Method, and more. The sound effects also kick much but. Control is dead on.85GameShark
An awesome music game that should be mentioned with the “Parappa”‘s and “DDR”‘s of the genre.85GamerWeb Sony
Has a knack for making the seemingly mediocre an incredible success. [Dec 2001, p.95]85Game Informer
In terms of how it compares to other music games I play, Frequency is a nice little title that some people will find quite addicting. Like most music games, though, gameplay can be quite tedious.80GamePen
Throw away every pre-conceived notion you may have about games involving music mixing, as Frequency is not only strong in its fun factor, but intensely addictive as well.80GameSpy
Ideal to dip into when you’ve run out of cash and completed everything else on your shelf.80AceGamez
This game is different, addictive, fun, and the multiplayer and remix modes ensures nearly infinite replay value.100XenGamers
It makes nice use of various special effects and never slows down, but those with epillepsy problems will probably want to stay away. However, if you’re familiar with raves, you’ll feel right at home.91Gaming Age

It may be a bit too challenging for its own good. [Jan 2002, p.128]70Official U.S. Playstation Magazine
The game has no direction or purpose, and its one of the few games that seems so dull on the PlayStation 2.70Hot Games
On a purely visceral level, the game is a blast.70All Game Guide
It may not have the cult personality of the “Dance Dance Revolution” series but it definitely has hooks that are capturing.70PSX Nation
If you’re interested in the art of music mixing, Frequency’s Remix mode is a good introduction…As a game though, this note is a little flat.67Game Revolution
