    FINALLY!
    Seriously, why this game don't have any hype on it?

    I'll try it later.

    After playing it for over an hour I can confirm this is the best DS rhythm/music game released this month.

    Without even playing it, I can confirm without hesitation that this is the best DS Rhythm Game released today.

    Suck it, Princess Melody!

    In all seriousness, checking it out now. First impressions will be posted when they are impressed upon.

    Meh, it's an alright game. Not very much a platformer, the "platforming" elements seem to be very useless, well at least where I'm at in the game.

    It's even better than lego rock band ds ? Cause that was really damn good. Or are you being facetious because of the frequency of recent rhythm games ? Either way, I'm all worked up and sweaty

    Lego Rock Band may be 'cooler' but this game is certainly a lot more fun.

    Got to say, as an experimental platforming game mixed with music, it is pretty fun.

    The tutorials get you up to speed pretty quickly. I was amazed at how well I managed the first symphony level they threw up. There does seem to be a little bit of intuition if you know the song the level is based on.

    The song choices so far have been mostly classical music, though the last level before the first boss was a surprise: Madness' Our House. And that level was quite fun, I might add.

    It's not going to appeal to everyone. Some might see it as a crappy platformer or a halfassed rhythm game, but for those who want both you can't find a better game on the DS.

    Graphically, the game is pretty. The sprites are colorful and cheerful, the backgrounds are pretty well detailed. If there were a fault, it'd be that the top screen isn't really doing much during the actual gameplay. But with the level of attention this game requires, I can see why they'd want to avoid distractions.

    I'd definitely rank this in my mind above Lego Rockband or Rhythm Heaven but right below Music Mon-Stars and Elite Beat Agents in terms of fun rhythm games.

    Been waiting for this since lastnight when I first heard about it. I love rhythm games, Rhythm Heaven and Elite Beat Agents being my favs, hopefully this is just as good as those if not better.

    i got to the final final boss and the last part of it where you have to strum 5-6 notes is just hard for me. its like out of sync or something. the game is alright but does get harder as you progress further.

    You must be aware that this is rhythm game disguised as a platform one.

    That said.. it's pretty fun. I love when people mix rhythm games with other genres.. very original.

    And that spider boss 3D model is amazing for a DS game [​IMG]

    This game is really fun, I just started playing and I'm at the last level. xD (Before the final boss, and I guess there are more modes after finishing it)

    I'm liking this game a lot. First ds game in a while that I've been bothered to play for more than an hour tbh.

    Just finished the story mode on easy, the game doesn't really "begin" until you unlock the normal and hard difficulties.
