Elite Beat Agents (DS)
Advantages: Fun, quick for a pick up game.
Disadvantages: can be out of sync, can easily get frustrating.
My other half bought me this game after I had read reviews on how fun and different it was for the DS (at the time it was anyway) and well, I agree, it is different! (unless you class the not long released rhythm paradise!)
The title screen is presented in a 3d style, you can scroll around the 'earth' as it were and select people from around the world to help out by smashing your stick on a screen in rhythm with music. What that has to do with saving others, I don't know!
The gameplay itself is rather amusing...In a bad/good way! The cute looking Anime style comics that flash upon your screen can, at times, distract. But most of the times you get a major part of the story flash on top, and then it will give you enough time to get your stylus 'stabby pen' ready and you tap circles in rhythm to the music.
There is a tutorial at the beginning as you can't just tap circles, you have to tap them at certain times, then they add ones where you have to hold your stylus down and drag along so on so forth, it all gets abit confusing after that, but after about 15 mins, you can easily get to grips with it. I did have issues with the timing sometimes being slightly out of sync, but most people would tell me its user error rather than the game haha!
Overall its a fun pick up and smash away game, just don't get too carried away now...ok?
Summary: A real fun game, especially for kids with fun music titles. Great for a quick game or two.
