''You won't find a stranger and more addictive rhythm game on a handheld system than Elite Beat Agents.''
The game first of all needs loads of hours to experience it fully, otherwise you will find it quite hard. The music that goes with it is pretty smooth, and so makes it a more exciting gameplay. There are in total four levels of difficulty, from very easy to hard core. The best part is the online mode which can get so addictive. You can do free roam with other characters and go on missions together. Sometimes even on the easy mode the game will be so hard to complete, and since it is based at children, theu may not like it that much at first, but once they get used to it, it will be a piece of cake.
A big part of the appeal comes from the presentation and cutscenes that set up each of the game's stages. All these are told through excellent-looking manga-styled sequences that set up each situation with the most extreme imagery possible. People are either incredibly happy or incredibly freaked out at all times. The problems you'll be solving are, of course, not quite what you might expect. You'll be helping babysitters fend off whiny children while they try to ask their jock boyfriends to go steady, 15th-century artists woo would-be models, and auto executives with mild ninjitsu skills take back stolen car designs from a rival company. The scenes are excellently drawn, and it's hard not to laugh at the ridiculousness of what's going on. The graphics are pretty good, they reminded me of some ps2 graphics, and since it was a DS game, it is definitely 5 stars for the graphics. You basically need to find your own way around each mission, either beating other agents, or go hunting for lost elite gear equipment, which in return gets you loads of rewards. The game is a challenging one, its no easy one for beginners, so this will definitely make it a addictive one. Apart from unlocking multiple difficulty modes, you'll also unlock a few bonus stages as you play through the single-player mode. There are 19 stages in all, and it'll likely take you at least a couple of hours with each difficulty level to complete them. Once you're done with single-player, there's a multiplayer mode for both competitive and co-op play for up to four players. Co-op splits songs up amongst two teams of agents, with each taking about half of the beats. In competitive mode, the two teams compete by playing all the same beats and trying to fill their "elite-o-meter" higher than the other team. The game has both multicart and download play, though the download play offers only a limited number of songs. The multiplayer works pretty well, though it also seemed a bit laggy in spots. Download play matches also tend to take an exceedingly long time to load up. Online play is quick and easy to start up, but takes time on the connection from your wireless router. The music goes into rymth, when you hear the sound you quickly need to tap on with the music, and see if you can make a long flow without doing a mistake, and trust me that is hard.
Recommended game. Top marks.
Summary: great ds music game
