    The game isn't far off and reminds me of the old Elite Beat Agents game on the DS. The demo was pretty entertaining and I look forward to seeing more. Seems like a decent game to pick up as the big releases wind down for the summer. Anyone else thinking of getting this?

    I have this game.

    7.5/10. It has a great soundtrack and the art is really good but it dissapoints on multiple fronts.

    The story is something you'd see in a kid's cartoon
    The translation is off sometimes.
    Gyroscope stages are a trainwreck
    stages are hit and miss. Some are well made but some are just timed poorly or aren't rhythm based at all. Some require you to just look at indicators and have no timing whatsoever.
    It advertises to have 50 different stages but a few are harder versions of earlier stages or extended.

    It made me think of Tintin. I love cheesy mystery stories. Tell me, did it remind you of Layton's stories at all?

    Only the backgrounds. The music was mainly instrumental sure but most of them didn't leave an impression on me at all.
    I just finished the game. The story was undeveloped and rushed. One of the characters ends up being a bad guy and there was no forshadowing. It was like just "oh lol i'm actually a bad dude"

    6.5/10. The story was only 9-10 hours long, and that's pushing it.


    but ask me anything about the game I guess. I compared the gameplay to Rhythm Heaven for the most part.

    This game is awesome for Rhythm fans...

    And just like ashxu said, it's quite like Rhythm Heaven.

    Tons of different types of gameplay. The best thing the game has for it is the replay function, challenge yourself for higher scores and the Marathon mode, only about 4 games have marathon mode, it consists of you playing that level endless until you miss 3 times.

    I actually like the fact that there is no hints towards the fact of a betrayal, most J games just like to put a bell on top of the bad guy while your characters seem to be so stupid they don't notice anything at all.

    I only played the demo, but found it offputting. I guess I should maybe give the full game a rent or something?
