Summary: Game worked flawlessly on my Slim PS2, the TaTaCon works without issue. You may have to practice to see exactly how hard you'll need to be hitting it though to register hits (I'm used to barely having to tap on my Rock Band drumset), but not a big deal. Also note this is for NTSC consoles only, and is in English. The PAL/Japanese version of this game is Taiko no Tatsujin (and there are multiple releases of this game, I think it goes up to 11).
Game is really fun! i just wish it came with a drumcon like they have it advetised.

Summary: I bought this a while back and it is in fact a fun game. it's just that sellers on amazon don't realize there's a separate listing for the game without a drum and list it here at a low price. if the price is lower than 10 bucks don't buy it. cuz chances are it doesn't have the drumcon. I fell victim to that. and the drum is unreasonably expensive. ANYWAY The game itself is a very family friendly and fun game to play.
Summary: I love the game and the person I bought it from was great but i had mistakenly ordered it thinking I was getting the Drumcom also. Oh well the game it's self is awesome my 13 year old son loves it and has his 8 year old sis playing it as well. As for me i love it to but suck at it.
Great for kids (and adults who are young at heart)

Summary: Two of my children have purchased this game, one of which took it with him when he left home for college. My pre-teen girl has a copy now, and absolutely LOVES it. Her little sister really enjoys it too. It is great for working on rhythm and hand-eye coordination. Calling it educational might be a bit of a stretch, but I have seen a positive growth in coordination skills since we got the game. The songs are catchy, and from what I have seen, G-rated.
Summary: I bought this along with the drum set because I saw it at a Japanese arcade and was curious. Surprisingly, my sister (in high school), my wife (who generally doesn't play games), and even my parents (entirely outside the gaming generation) started competing against each other! It is easy to get in on the fun for all ages, spanning every which generation. And certainly, for me, it was much more fun to play this with a group of people rather than alone.
Summary: I love it! Truly not just for kids or teens. So much fun that when it got too late to bang on the drums for fear of disturbing the neighbors, I switched to the regular controller and made no noise at all--and it's easier because you don't have to be sure to hit the drum just right so my scores were higher. The songs are really great compared to what I've heard on the DDR games. At least with this one I am familiar with most of the titles.
Summary: This game is simple enough that my 4 year old can grasp the concept and yet is engaging enough that even the adults in the house enjoy playing and watching it. The drum is fun to beat but the game also allows you to use a standard console if you don't wish to hear the noise or want to play while there are people sleeping. Would be a plus for people who live in apartments as well and folks who don't want to pay extra to buy a 2nd drum for 2 player action.
Summary: This is a fun game. It's great to play with the kids and adults. No killing/violence/language You don't have to be familiar with video games (like some games) to figure out how to play it. I like that you have to actually do something to play the game. Unlike the "guitar hero" game where you just push a button-which has nothing to do with playing guitar, this one you actually get to bang on the drum.
