Theatrhythm Final Fantasy (3DS)
31 July 2012
Excerpt: Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Developed by: Indies Zero Published by: Square Enix Release Date: July 3, 2012 Available on: 3DS Mode: Single/Multiplayer ESRB Rating: E 10+ for ages 10 and older: Fantasy Violence, Mild Blood, Mild Language, Suggestive Themes, Use of Tobacco MSRP: $40
Pros: Excellent music, fun and challenging gameplay
Cons: Many spoilers if you have not played the entire series
Excerpt: There was a time that whenever Square-Enix strayed away from RPGs the results would more often than not be disastrous. Thankfully the days of the embarrassingly bad beat ’em up The Bouncer and shoddy racing sim Driving Emotion Type S are long behind us.
Conclusion: All that aside, regardless of what kind of Final Fantasy fan you are– casual, veteran or newbie– Theatrhythm has a little something for everyone, but only if you enjoy rhythm games, because that’s what this is.
Summary: was developed with only fans of the series in mind, and it shows. But, when you build a game around music from only one series, that’s to be expected. What FF fans need to know is that the game is fun, and worth picking up for the music alone. Just be prepared to work for some of the top tunes.
Summary: The Final Fantasy franchise invades the rhythm genre at last, and the results are better than I could’ve expected. Theatrhythm Final Fantasy includes all of the familiar trappings of the rhythm genre and coats it with a thin layer of RPG elements.
