Unique and very, very fun,
This review is from: Elite Beat Agents NDS (Video Game)
Here's another exclusive, unique, and innovative triple A title for the DS. Elite Beat Agents follows the exploits of three black suit wearing secret agents on a rescue mission. And the only way to find success with your mission: dance to the rhythm! Now I know what your thinking, that this game is something for acquired tastes and isn't for everyone. While this may be true in some respects, Elite Beat Agents is surprisingly easy to get into and pick up and play. The bizarre but wonderfully drawn cut scenes help reel you into the gameplay, as the soundtrack features a whole laundry list of older and more recent pop songs that are sure to grate on your nerves at some point or the other, but they all feel at home here as you use your stylus to keep the rhythm going. What's really surprising is that how addictive the gameplay becomes once you really get into it. This is easily one of the best games stylus-use wise for the DS, totally making excellent use of the touch screen as well. There's some unlockables as well to help keep your interest, however the only real downpoint of Elite Beat Agents is that at times the game can get too challenging for it's own good. There will be frustrating times aplenty, but the good obviously outweighs the bad here. Even if games like Dance, Dance Revolution (which is one of the most easily comparable games to this) aren't your thing, if you have a DS you should really give Elite Beat Agents a try, I think you'll be pleasently surprised.
