musepoetique's Elite Beat Agents (Nintendo DS) review

Loads of fun with some frustration.

A friend of mine had a Japanese version of this game and I instantly fell in love.  Years later I decided to buy the official US release.  The price $5.  Amazing price for an amazing game.  The mini story lines are hilarious and entertaining.  The dancing and singing "agents" add a fun element to the game.  The only thing that turned me off was that sometimes the notes would get out of sync.  It was frustrating when this happened.  This was usually fixed when you started another song. 
 
The multiplayer aspect is a lot of fun.  Watching the cut scenes really amplify the experience.  It was fun watching to see exactly who did best in each section.  I definitely recommend this game.

    Elite Beat Agents is an interesting game with a lot of character and some great humor.  Unfortunately, it also has a lot of problems.  In it, you play as the Elite Beat Agents, a group of dancing government (?) agents, whose sole purpose is to make a difference in the lives of others.  How do they do this?  By dancing, of course.  At it's heart, EBA is a simple rhythm game you play using the only the stylus.  You'll find yourself tapping, dragging, and tracing your way to the beat.  This is all ...
