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.
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.Read more ›
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.
I adored the music--it fits perfectly in with the game. I found nearly all the music/songs so catchy I found myself humming them throughout my workday--not the most ideal thing to do while in a room with a bunch of suited up folks!
The gameplay is varied and can be very challenging. There were times it seemed my DSi did not register what I did on the touch screen. It was few and far between and there is no problem with my DSi so I would say there were a few touchy moments.
As much as I love the game I do see some limitations--the game can be frustratingly difficult and unforgiving. If you are the type to get overly frustrated and throw your game against the wall do yourself the favor of passing on this one! I found if you put it down for a while and pick it back up you have a sort of renewed energy for it. I haven't seen any kids play this so I can't say whether my poor reflex issues are a function of age (because, mostly, they are! LOL) I'm a bit scared to ask my kids since they usually trounce me quite well in games of this type. Ah well. It's the enjoyment that counts right?
The orientation of the DSi was a bit awkward. My hands get sweaty when I'm really focusing and concentrating and sometimes my grip on the Dsi seemed a bit, well, uncertain. Not enough to make me stop playing but just that little bit of uncomfortable.
I'm having a good run on the DS games lately--maybe I'm just choosing better (thanks amazon reviewers!) but this one is quite the little gem that shouldn't be missed!
