      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good to pick up and put down again; not so good for a serious gamer.

      When I first read the news of Theatrhythm, I squealed. I purchased it on the very first day it was released and set about it playing it immediately. And I *adored* it! It's sweet, colourful graphics; it's fun, poppy tunes; all it's lovely unlockables.....wow. I was smitten.

      I returned to it the next day, and slogged, and slogged. Hearing the same tunes over and over and over was getting a bit tiring and fifty different rhythm variations to one song was starting to confuse me. After about 20 hours gameplay I had still not unlocked a single new character (and only one new song!) despite continually seeing teasing scenes of other characters greeting my character when I would complete a song. Trying to get my head around the battle system involved was driving me insane. Why did I need a battle system?! It's a RHYTHM GAME! Needless to say after another 10 hours and STILL being nowhere near unlocking a single character, I gave up, and it has lived on my shelf undisturbed since.

      Don't get me wrong, it's a great game to pick up and put down in the space of an hour, even a half hour, if you've got some time to spare, and is really fun to play. But once you get over the initial novelty, the cracks start to show; there aren't enough songs, the unlockable characters take way too long to unlock, the difficulty level creeps up and up and up.....the list goes on.

      If you're a fan of rhythm games AND FF then you really should pick this one up as it's really quite cute, and, like I say, great for a bit of fun every now and then. But if you're just an FF fan, I wouldn't rush out to get this one; you're not gonna get too much out of it.
