I bought this game without expecting much from it as a "game" besides revisiting/hearing Final fantasy music, i was blown away by how good it's actually as a game, it's fun to play and it can get REALLY hard sometimes which is fine with me, basically there are 5 tracks for each final fantasy (FF1 to FF13) you get the Opening/Ending tracks for each game plus 3 more songs, the game is already out in japan and it did get TON of DLC songs so i expect that there will be a lot of FF Songs DLC sooner or later for the American/Europe version of the game.

Be warned though, the game use a lot of Cutscenes as a background video during the levels, for example playing the FF9 Ending track basically shows you the ENDING cutscene video, i have played and finished every single FF Game, so they can't possibly ruin anything for me, but if you played few FF and still waiting to play many other FFs there will be a lot of spoilers for you in this game.

Basically if you are a final fantasy fan who does enjoy the FF Music then this is a must have !, I'll leave you with this quote from Nobuo Uematsu himself which he posted in his twitter after trying the game.

"I played Theatrhythm Final Fantasy for the first time today. Not too shabby! As I remembered various things from the past 20 years, I was reduced to tears. FF music fans should definitely play it. Won't you cry with me?"

This is a very strange game, like many music/rhythm games in that while the songs are relatively short, this game has a tendency of eating time. I mean that in the best possible way though. The core gameplay mechanic of Theatrythem is quite simple and controlling the entire game (this includes menus outside of gameplay) is done through the touch-screen. The game consists of three types of levels, BMS, FMS and, EMS and they all have the same three types of notes which are slide, tap and, hold. The game starts with you choosing a party of four familiar characters from Final Fantasy 1 through to 13. Furthermore, there are 16 characters just waiting to be unlocked by gathering Crystal Shards (done by playing the game's Chaos Shrine mode). As for the differences per level type (BMS, FMS, EMS) their presentation for each of the stages are set up slightly differently from each other.

An EMS is an event stage and there are fewer of those than any other stage, one per Final Fantasy title (13 in total). The EMS takes cinematic scenes from their applicable game and sets it to the games main theme or something similar, like Waltz for the Moon for FFVIII or Suteki da ne for FFX. Once you gain a certain amount of Rythmia (points earned after each and every level) you unlock the EMS videos in a theater mode and the big miss here is how the videos themselves weren't re-made or updated enough to support 3D visuals. You get depth with the 3D on but no actual 3D and, the image sort of has a phantom-shift, after-image thing going on.

FMS features field music and while there's one per final fantasy, there are extra ones available to be unlocked through the Chaos Shrine Mode and, gaining more and more Rythmia (not counting DLC, available now if you have an E-Shop card handy).

This game includes songs from Final Fantasies 1-13. You can choose four characters from the preselected character that represents a particular Final Fantasy title. There is magic, items and other options to be equiped during the game that will help you win a particular song. There are 5 songs per title, with upcoming DLC to be anticipated, and there are 3 difficulties. One of these difficulties is relatively secret, but the game hints at it strongly. Most of the selected songs are very enjoyable to play, and some of the monsters are fun to fight as well.

This game is really hard to review because of its diverse gameplay options and style but. . .

Visuals are very nice, and very clear 9/10 --Visuals are hard to focus on during gameplay
Music selection was excellent 8/10 --Some players may be upset that their favorite song isn't included
Story line is, so far, absent 7/10 --A story line would add little to the experience, maybe even ruin it slightly, but it couldn't have hurt to have tried to run some kind of summary of each game (This section is likely to be updated as I continue to play)
Customization is really interesting 9/10 --Using magic and other specials during battle is interesting, but often times, at least initially, it is hard to notice their presence during the battle/field/story stages
Leveling seems a bit fast 8/10 --Fortunately there are many characters to level, and maybe even some secret ones
Rhythmia is an interesting addition 9/10 --Gives a powerful reason to keep playing your favorite songs, and remembering the past

Overall, this is still a music game primarily, but it still succeeds slightly in allowing character progression and other common Final Fantasy RPG elements.

So whether you enjoy playing music from the first Final Fantasy games, or the most recent, there is probably something here for you to enjoy.

I bought this game not because I was a FF fan nor an avid music gamer, but because the whole package looked like a really fun and enjoyable experience. I picked it up the day it came out, and wasn't disappointed.
I havn't played many of the FF games personally, but I am at least partially familiar with the music and have watched friends play before. I've also been interested in playing a rhythm game though I havn't played many before. This game marries the beautiful music with a fun game to make a really fun experience.
The game is great for both veteran music gamers and those new to the genre. The game explains how to play very well, and while it starts out fairly easy, there are 2 more levels of difficulty you eventually unlock. So if you find the game too easy, just stick with it until you get past expert!

The gameplay is largely tapping, sliding, and holding your stylus on the bottom screen to cues that run along the top. There are 3 styles of gameplay- Field, Battle, and Event. These are all similar, but have a different feel, which I really like about the game. There is also 3 modes of play- Series, Challenge, and Chaos Shrine. Series lets you play a string of songs together back-to-back, and Challenge lets you pick out specific songs. Both get higher difficulties unlocked with play. Chaos Shrine lets you find "Dark Notes", which is 2 unknown songs together which can be found by playing or in Streetpass (where they can be shared). This mode is good to grind for items and shards for unlocking characters. In Chaos Shrine you can also play local multiplayer, which is quite fun.

I really liked the RPG aspect they added to the game, which I think enhances the desire for replay and was one of the main reasons I picked it up.
