Rhythm Thief and the Emperor's Treasure
2 September 2013
Summary: Rhythm Thief and the Emperor's Treasure is one of the most unusual games I've played this year. There is not much about it that follows any sort of familiar trajectory.

Conclusion: Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure is rated E-10 with ESRB descriptors of Alcohol Reference, Cartoon Violence, and Mild Suggestive Themes. Paris is famous for its wine, so there are a few mentions of it here and there by the locals.
Excerpt: Just when I thought July will only have a single rhythm game that I'll be obsessed with for the Nintendo 3DS, out of nowhere comes Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure , quite possibly one of the most entertaining and well put together rhythm games I've ever played.

Summary: Parents need to know that Rhythm Thief & The Emperor's Treasure is a music and puzzle game suitable for older elementary school kids. Most of its rhythm-based activities -- hiding behind statues, bounding across rooftops, cooking food -- are completely innocuous.
Conclusion: It is rare for a game to have such a variety of different ingredients and managing to gel them together this well. Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure manages to pull it off with elegance.
