Rhapsody gives us something new. An RPG more based in comedy and song. Now comedy RPG's aren't new (Thousand Arms), and neither are Song filled RPGS (Lunar: SSSC). Rhapsody however combines the best of both worlds and creates a fun little game that kept me riveted with laughter andwell as suprised at myself that i was enjoying a storyline obviously geared for teenage girls (But there some subtle sexual comments.)
The battle system is easy to learn and none of the battles ever present a real challenge, but that's common and almost a trademark of Atlus games. Anyone should be able to learn the system in under 15 minutes.
So overall, Rhapsody is a must buy for those of you looking for a unique role playing game that will make you laugh and probably scare your parents that you have J-Pop coming from the Tv speakers. If you're looking for an RPG with blood, gore, scary monster, and items like "Superdeathimoblizer Sword," then try one of the other role playing games easily lost in the shadows.
The game is played strategy-style [think FF: Tactics, only disgustingly cute] with the most adorible characters imaginable. You are [or rather, follow] Cornet, a girl with the ability to talk to [and animate] puppets. While she can befriend and talk to them, none are really as "alive" as Kururu - who is very animated and is Cornet's best friend. No one knows how or why Kururu is so very animated, but it's a blessing for Cornet, who lives alone with her grandfather.
The villians are far too funny to be fearsome, and the monsters are just too cute. The attacks, however, are the best: the special attacks are breakfast foods - Pancake attack!
The game is rather short [15-30 hours, depending on how much you level/strategize], but is a wonderful introduction to gaming in general, and strategy games in particular for girls. The songs, while sappy at times, can be downright hilarious, and a few can be touching, especially once you've finished the storyline. All in all a cute, sweet, lovable game that can be enjoyed best by women or guys who know how to enjoy something cute and funny. At the very least, it's a great collection piece, because how many actual MUSICAL video games have you seen?
Cornet(your character) can talk to people(and puppets for that matter), and watch them grow and mature(eg the kid and Koro, his dog) but sadly you can't interact w/them. also, no matter what you do, you can't change the ending(which makes me cry everytime is see it;_;)
I ACTUALLY ENJOY THE FIGHT SCENES, the Pancake attack is NOT to be reckoned with.
Finally all the little details(such as the rude little weight-scale and the ripeness of the oranges)are so much fun, and brighten up your day:)
I can't say serious RPG'rs want this, but if you want something fun, heart warming, and makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside, YOU WANT THIS GAME!!!
