Bump up the VOLUME!!!!!
on 19 October 2009
If you've read any of my previous reviews you'd be forgiven for thinking I was just a grumpy old man trapped in a young man's body who does nothing but get drunk on sour gin - the flavours of which are tinged with the distinct overtones of cynicism and bitterness. So it may come as a shock to you that I actually...love this game!
Yes yes, no need to adjust your monitor - Rohan Diego genuinely loves something! (calm down, jeez) ; )
This game is fun, quirky, innovative and highly addictive. The songs get you dancing and the absurdity of the mini games keep you smiling. In one of the games you take control of a young lad who has turned away from his hoody-donning Asbo days and has decided instead to become a master at eating dumplings! It's your job to tap the screen to the beat in order for him to karate chop dumplings into his gob - I know right, it shouldn't work but it really really does! And if you do it correctly you'll see him grow a wicked tash and float away on a cloud of dreams as he scours ancient China for more young teens that need converting from all their `brap-brapping and happy-slapping'!
I cannot praise this game enough, there are so many mini-games, remixes and special awards to unlock that you really can't accuse this game of not knowing the meaning of `longevity'.
Yes, sometimes your movements don't register the way you think they should and you end up failing at a particular game. But even this isn't an issue because after you get familiar with the song you'll be absolutely fine. But even if you still struggle (perhaps you have chunky fingers or some such ailment) then the game will become aware of it and allow you to skip the `problem' altogether (now raise your chunky fingers and rejoice!)
See? Even the problems in this game aren't even problems! Why can't more games be like this? I hate having games that I've had to get rid of just because I was unable to pass a level! Well excuse me if I can't chase a group of cars whilst simultaneously shooting at them, avoiding 12 police vans, 4 tanks and 30 something helicopters - armed, might I add, with rocket launchers and H bombs! (clearly I'm still bitter after playing GrandTheftAuto4 - but whatever) after all, we shouldn't have to replay levels over and over for all eternity like we were in some digitized purgatory! Take a leaf out of this book you devils!
5 stars baby!
