Summary: When i first bought it, i was really happy.The game was good at first, but after playing it for a long time,it gets pretty boring.i havent pkllayed the game in like 1 1/2 yrs.The game Osu!Tatakae!Ouendan! is the same as this game,but the Ouendan one is better.EBA has only 19 songs,like material girls, YMCA, Sk8ter Boi, and other songs.Ouendan has slightly more songs and the songs are J-POP, so....yeah.
Only worth it if you are desperate for a rhythm game on your DS

Summary: The Good: Wacky stories, decent selection of songs, fun mechanics when you get used to it The Bad: High learning curve, songs are cover songs, low audio quality, only 19 songs, lacks modes The DS doesn't have enough good rhythm games, but Elite Beat Agents helps fill that void with a campy off the wall style that any fan of the genre will enjoy.
Summary: Despite how fun the game is, it was way too short for my liking. I was surprised to find myself at what looked like the final level after about two hours of playing. I guess my little gripe about the length of the game isn't all too common a complaint since I'm assuming other people squeeze more hours out of the game by playing on more difficulties and trying to get the highest possible scores. That being said, it's still a decent steal for 10 dollars (new).
Summary: Person i bought it from gave me a crappy box, no instruction booklet..was a used box from GAmestop. Game is fun tho, great music and everyone who listens to the song wants to try and join along. Game is kinda hard, but fun.
Summary: I just bought a DSLite. Since Elite Beat Agents is over a year old I dropped by my local GameStop to pick up the game used. I thought I got a bargain. I fired up the game in my brand new DS to see that the game saved all the former player's game stats. The second hand EBA game shows all the sites cleared meaning everything is open. I have no idea where to start. The map is on a free spinning ball so there is no linear way for me to figure out where to go next.
Summary: Since I am tremendously over the age of 10, my opinion may not count for much here, but I feel compelled to weigh in. Elite Beat Agents is a weird, very fun game that is simple to learn considering that all you do is tap circles, roll a ball, and spin a wheel with the stylus in time to music. And that's it. It can be frustrating, but it is the the kind of frustration that makes you want to come back for more.
Summary: I like Elite Beat Agents. It's fun and addicting and a guilty pleasure of wasting time away in this Rythmn based game. It's more Dance Dance Revolution with a stylus than Guitar Hero by it's theme of dancing to a beat. Unfortunately, it's not a 5 star game. The biggest drawback against this game is the soundtrack. Would I want to play a game to the beat of Averill Lavigne, Ashleey Simpson or Good Charlotte? No (and I don't care if I mispell their names, they all suck).
Summary: Don't buy this game for kids, I implore you - unless you have kids with fantastic rhythm or who won't get frustrated fast. Essentially Elite Beat Agents is a rhythm game where you tap circles on the screen to the beat - however it isn't that simple. You need to do they in the right order, for the right amount of time and only when the circle gets small. See what I mean now about not buying this for a regular child?
Pros: Helps with stylus dexterity, good music on the whole, rather sweet stories.
Cons: Steep learning curve with regards to how fast you need to tap sometimes.
Summary: This is a rather surprisingly fun game to play. At least it is addictive anyway. There is a good variety of music. The stories are a bit cheesy but I think that is what they were going for. So with that in mind, I think the game is done very well. The graphic style is either a love or hate relationship which is why I only gave it 3 stars. Still, this is pretty good value for the money, game is the kind that can be replayed and is addictive so you get your money worth.
