I added this game to my queue months back, anxiously awaiting its arrival; I absolutely loved Rhythm Heaven back on my DSi. I was surprised that they chose the Wii as the platform instead of the 3DS, as this game seems more suited for a handheld console, but I digress.
This game has the some of the easiest controls in the world; press the A button & the B button, sometimes both together. That's it. There's no motion aspect to this game, as with other Wii titles & the premise sounds equally as easy: stay on rhythm. (You'll notice I said "sounds".) I expected a fly-through game; a game that is so easy you simply "fly through" it. I wasn't entirely correct.
Though this game sounds easy, getting into the groove is a bit harder than I expected. The first challenge you're faced with is called Hole In One, in which a monkey and a mandrill hock golf balls at you; you must hit the A button in time with their shouts, which is also in sync with the game's music to make a hole in one. It sounds easy enough, but it actually took me a good 5 tries before I was able to pass it; I found that I needed to bob my body in time with the monkeys to keep the rhythm (& I believe myself to be quite rhythmically gifted.)
Every level in the game has the actions performed in sync with music as well as a visual cue. I find some of the later levels to be easier than some of the earlier ones, but I have found all to be fun. You also unlock a two-player mode that is quite entertaining.
All in all, I believe this to be a great game for kids 8-16 and fans of the series, (like me!)
This game is hard and not really fun. The graphics look like they were made in the 1900's. But I'm only 10 so this game might be easier the older you are. Really the only good part about the game is that you can skip as many levels as you want. One last thing when they judge you they are sometimes really rude.
