Excerpt: Rhythm games may not have total control of the gaming market these days, but people always want to press buttons in time to music. That’s especially true on the Wii, where Just Dance is one of the biggest franchises in the system’s history. But for those that prefer Japanese weirdness and catchy tunes over hopping around to kid-friendly pop, Rhythm Heaven Fever has finally made it to our shores.
Pros: A bevy of addictive, catchy songs, Adorably unique style and art, A great deal at any price (especially $30)
Cons: Musical amateurs will occasionally be frustrated, Hardcore players may find it too easy, It's one of the last good times you'll have on the Wii
Conclusion: Rhythm Heaven is a solid game that fans of the series will definitely love and new players will enjoy as well. The series transitioned well from the handheld platform to the main platforms extremely well which is a tricky thing for any game series to do. The audio and visuals in the game are very well done and mesh together very well.
Excerpt: Ah Nintendo, first you made me realise I need to lose a few pounds by playing Wii Fit and now you’re out to prove to me that I have no sense of rhythm? What did I ever do to you? Well, I hate to admit it, but you were right about the weight thing and it appears that you’ve gotten me yet again, as after playing through Rhythm Heaven Fever for the Wii I can assuredly say that my musical timing is almost non-existent Which begs the question: is this edition of Rhythm Heaven...
Nintendo’s Bizarre Musical Experiment Finds A Home On The Wii
29 February 2012
Conclusion: Concept: Take the rhythm genre in a bizarre, challenging, and entertaining direction
Graphics: Brilliant colors and strange designs make Rhythm Heaven Fever hard to look away from
Sound: Every song gets drilled into your head, and you will welcome each one with open arms (ears?)
Playability: It’s tough and unforgiving, but it all makes sense once you get into the rhythm
Entertainment: You’ll be tapping your foot along with the beat without even realizing it
Excerpt: asks that you "relax and have fun." Heck, it even tells you that outright in the opening cutscene. It doesn't want you to become too absorbed or obsessed with beating a high score or freaking out when you make a mistake. Just kick back and enjoy the ride!
Excerpt: Despite the fact that Rhythm Heaven Fever is on the Wii and looks like a budgetware collection of minigames, it’s nothing of the sort. These aren’t minigames. More accurately, I’d call them rhythm puzzles every bit as demanding and challenging as Bit Trip Beat on the Wii, Groove Coaster on the iPhone, Patapon on the PSP, or cooking meat in the Monster Hunter series. If you don’t have an ear for rhythm and your own internal metronome, you will be hopelessly lost.
Excerpt: One of the games on my list to play this year is Rhythm Heaven Fever for the Nintendo Wii. Having enjoyed playing the previous Rhythm Heaven game for the DS, I was looking forward to seeing what the Wii version had to offer. Enjoyable gameplay and unique level designs are just a couple of thoughts that come to mind when I think back to when I played the DS version of the game.
