5.0 out of 5 stars Hardest little easy game ever! But it's awesome! April 8, 2009
By Shantel
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is like no other. It looks like such a little kids game, it fools you. The graphics are simple, as are the controls. The concept hard to explain in words but easy to understand once you play the game. Basically, this game is composed of many mini games in which you tap and flick the touch screen along with the rhythm of the music to do all kinds of activities, from singing to picking crops.

The mini-games are very unique and very challenging, and despite its appearance, this is a game for people of all ages. No other music game out there right now is like this one. I can't say that enough! This game is very well thought out. It is a wonder how they could think up so many activities to do with just a flick and a tap. It's addicting and a whole lot of fun. You won't be disappointed. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Encourages Out-Of-The-Box Thinking April 8, 2009

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Rhythm Heaven is a great collection of mini-games for the Nintendo DS which builds up your skills in rhythm and accuracy. This is almost like a brain-train game for your fingers and ears!

The first thing I want to note here is that many reviewers have posted reviews of this game after playing only a game or two. It's fairly obvious in their reviews!! Every game can be tough at first, Once you get the hang of it and get past that "training session" area you can truly evaluate a game based on whether it's fun long term or not. It's key in gaming in general to go with reviewers who actually play the full game before reporting on it!

So, the basics, Rhythm Nation is much like WarioWare in that it is a collection of generally short (under a minute) mini-games that are all different and all test different parts of your skill set. They are all related to clicking and "slashing" quickly. In one game for example fast cars are zooming around a race track. You have to click right in time to take their photo as they go past you.

In another game you are a fan for a singing group, clapping your hands in time to the song and doing other cheering moves.

They have a good selection of different activities to keep you interested. Each mini-game is short so you can play it in line without worrying about getting sucked in for more than 60 seconds or so. Each game has room for improvement so you can keep replaying it and trying to improve your score.

Sometimes you hit a game that you really don't like. This is one of my complaints about the game - it is very linear. You have to unlock game #5 to go on to game #6. If you get stuck on a game you can go into the cafe and skip that game, but still, I would rather you get a "group" of games at a time.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun, creative, unique game. April 7, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I fell in love with Rhythm Heaven immediately. The characters are engaging and fun. The games are truly unique and creative. There's just nothing quite like it, and it's hard to explain why flicking your stylus to the rhythm is so much fun, but it is.

Some games are harder than others, and it does take a little patience to keep playing until you score high enough to move to the next level. On the first game, for example, you think you're done with the level because the screen turns black, but then there's a little circle that shows just a portion of the screen, and you're supposed to keep playing. I got pretty frustrated until I figured this out because I couldn't understand why I wasn't passing the level.

Once you get through each set of games, then you do a "remix" which requires you to do all the moves you learned in the previous games. The remix is really challenging because it goes quite fast and you have to remember how to stay with the rhythm.

I highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys music and quirky, unusual fun.

Try playing this game on the original DS, and you will soon find clearing some stages is near impossible - leaving you ready to curse and throw the DS across the room (at least in my case). The "flick" movement necessary to perform tasks in the game constantly does not register. Since there is a very small window of mistakes allowed between passing and failing a stage, even one or two unregistered flicks messes you up. It seems playing on the DSi is the way to go, but I don't have the DSi. It would have been helpful if the manufacturer put out a notice saying the game might not perform the same across all DS systems.

What I liked: The characters and music are fun! Not annoying at all.
What could be improved: There really wasn't much escalation in terms of level of difficulty the further you progressed in the game. They just changed characters + music, and gave a different rhythm, but didn't make it harder/faster like in other rhythm games such as Elite Beat Agents. This made it not as fun for me as it got a bit redundant.
Helpful info: Play a game at least three times and if you haven't cleared the stage, you can talk to the bartender and he will let you move on to the next stage. This is the only way I got to see the different stages given my problems with the flick on the old DS.

This game might be fun if you have a DSi, but even if it worked perfectly, there are better rhythm games out there in my opinion.
