What happens when you mix the magic of Disney with the magic of Harmonix? You get Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved, one of the most unique and hard-to-describe games I think I’ve ever seen.

What if I told you that there was a game that gave you the strategy of a fighting game without the button-mashing and split-second timing?
