Smilie Waluigi Rhythm Heaven




It's rare that we gamers get so punished by a video game, particularly by
one on DS. But Rhythm Heaven is one Hell of a challenging title,
particularly if you want to chose to score medals in all of the crazy
activities. It's not that hard to pick up what you need to - pretty much
just tap the touchscreen and flick the touchscreen to the beat of the
music - it's just getting it right. This is where the real challenge lies. Right
off the bat, I hit a brick wall in the first game "Built to Scale." It took me
ages to get it right and further activities refused to unlock before I beat it
- unbelievable! Not to mention, the game kept taunting me with quotes
like "Sometimes it hurts to lose". I thought this game was going to be a
walk in the park, a casual mini-game collection that I'd hammer through in
no time.



I was wrong.



Rhythm Heaven is the brainchild of the guys behind the WarioWare series
and it's pretty much a fusion of the rhythm and mini-game genres, with
stacks of wackiness thrown in for good measure. It's played by holding the
DS book-style, and the gameplay is solely stylus-driven. One a whole, the
control scheme works well, however a few glitches and bugs were found
when a few stylus flicks didn't register properly. It was only a small thing,
hardly noticeable when playing the game.



The mini-games themselves are totally addictive and there are over 50 of
these musical time-wasters. Players will do everything from juicing up
funky robots and blasting invading aliens, to scratching it up DJ style.
Everything revolves around the music, and the tunes are genuinely
catchy. As I mentioned previously, Rhythm Heaven really ramps up the
difficulty, or maybe I'm just musically challenged. Either way, after each
failure, I kept finding myself coming back for more musical mayhem.

Kind of short, but a good review nonetheless. I really like the way you designed the review layout in particular, it's quite pleasing to the eye.

I'm not too content with the length either, but there's not much more someone can say about a mini-game collection.

Sooooo Agree that this game was difficult. I enjoyed it but gave up in the end. I do think it required a little too much precision. Would defo be better with a high quality and contempory soundtrack. Or a Family guy musical edition lol. Still, no regrets buying it.
