I'm a musician and I love the Final Fantasy series. The music from the games have helped me find my muse. With this game, I find myself playing at 2 am in bed when I can't sleep. I've had yelling matches with my son over his DS so that I can play with it. My only problem with the game is the Chaos Shrine which the songs are a little fast for me because my eyes are a little slow. That's more of a user/operator issue than the game itself. If you or someone you know loves music and Final Fantasy, this is a game to get them!

This game is awful. It seems great at first... The controls aren't too bad, and a Final Fantasy rhythm game seems like a dream come true. But then you find out many of the songs are cut short, usually right before some of the best parts. Saber's Edge is a prime example here. The basic scores get boring fast, and once you get into expert scores, the game becomes a total nightmare. Arrows can be a pain to master, but the real kicker is diagonal arrows. In my experience, the diagonal arrows have a nasty time registering, which leads to many instances of getting a "miss" or a "bad" because the game did not register your touch screen input. This is absolutely ridiculous. It's an awful shame, I thought this was going to be an amazing game, but nope.
