The strangest rhythm game is the best ever.
on 9 July 2012
I'm still fairly new to the rhythm genre, but I'm enjoying Beat the Beat. There are 50 mini-games, and after four games there's a remix where the 4 games appear in random order. The game requires no more control than the a button or a and b button, and as long as you can keep with the rhythm then you'll have no trouble, but that's a tricky task to achieve! I found some games too tricky, but you can skip them if you're really struggling. I find the games very well thought out, and there's the old Nintendo magic in every one of them. One of the weirdest games I've played is where you have to rally a shuttlecock in an aeroplane with a cooking utensil, it gets tougher when clouds pass by and the speed of the shuttlecock varies. There are demos of how to play each game if you are having difficulty, so there is plenty of help available for newbies. Every so often you'll be given the chance to go for a perfect score in a game where you got awarded a medal. If you perfect the game you'll unlock bonus content, like a music track.
If you want to try the rhythm genre for the first time, I'd get this game. If you've played rhythm games before, then you should also get it without delay. Beat the Beat only made it to number 11 in the wii charts last week, lets get it in the top ten where it deserves to be, buy it today you'll have hours of fun!
