7. Rhtyhm Heaven (DS)


What’s the first thing you think of when you think of the term rhythm game? I’m willing to bet most of you reading this immediately thought of something like Guitar Hero or what not. And while you’re correct in thinking that it’s a rhythm game, that doesn’t come close to describing what Rhythm Heaven is, bringing it’s own unique definition of a rhythm game to the masses.


For starters, Rhythm Heaven is a mini-game compilation where rhythm is of the utmost importance. You tap and flick to a beat to complete a variety of goals. For instance, one such instance is in a factory where you’re building  stuff. Two items roll alongside each other to a “Do Re Mi” rhythm. Once you get to the “So” part, you flick a bolt, and you build the item. Any earlier or later, and you don’t build it.


What’s impressive about the game is that for such a simple control scheme, it works well across a variety of different types of mini-game, such as a space shooter, choir practice, forming a cheer squad and so on. Also, the sequences you get into are some of the most insane and just amazing sequences you’ll see in any mini-game compilation this side of the WarioWare ilk.


That being said, the game has an insane learning curve. Rhythm Heaven is among one of the most brutal mini-game compilations you’re bound to play, with the game tolerating very few mistakes. It’s not entirely out of reason for you to fail a mini-game for missing only a small amount of the goal. And while you’re given a hint as to how to improve, it’s always never exactly clear as to what you’re supposed to do. Though if you do fail three times in a row, you can always skip the mini-game and move on to the next one.


Aside from that, there really isn’t much else to say about the game. It’s very hard to actually describe the game, since it’s something that you really need to actually play to properly understand. It’s quite unique, and despite the difficulty, is something that you can get into with the littlest of ease.

Brilliant game. Not hard, you just need to get the rhythm down. Once it clicks, it clicks. I have perfects on nearly every game. Only the last moai head I cant get a perfect on.

Did your wife play it for you Robio?

No she did not.  She would have done much better though I'm sure.

Of course. You are too busy with Wii Play to practice on your rhythm Nyaa

*poof* I see I was summoned...

Why not just come out and write about how much you like Style Savy. I can at least respect a man who comes out and says, "yes I like games meant for pre-teen girls."  When you play a game like this though I do more than question your sexuality. I question your desire of wanting to even be a man. Playing this game is your way of saying you want a vagina.  Why don't you just put a dress on and swish around for us.

Oh and I'm not singling you out here Homer.  This goes to all the gender confused guys out there playing and enjoying this game.

If Robio normal doesn't like Rhythm Heaven shouldn't Dark Robio be the opposite and like the game?

Rogio being a closet Rhythmsexual confirmed.

That's my thought too GG. You suck Dark Robio. You really do. In fact, you may suck worse than your good conuterpart.
