fat_otter's Elite Beat Agents (Nintendo DS) review

A ds game that everyone should own!

Seriously, this is one of the best ds games ever made! EBA is a rhythm-action game that is easy to pick up, and IMPOSSIBLE to put down. You play the game as the Elite Beat Agents - a group of special agents who help people in distress. The game has about 10 different scenarios where you help people. These can range from helping a baby sitter with a bunch of unruly kids, to a guy stealing back the plans for a prototype car, to helping two Paris Hilton lookalikes survive on a stranded island. Each scenario has a song that you play to. The basic gameplay is tapping a circle when another circle overlaps the other one. (If you don't get what I mean, watch a video of it in action!) The game has a surprisingly unique mix of music. It's a mix of music a 12 year old kid would listen to, and music the kid's parents listen to. The game features songs by The Rolling Stones, Madonna, Destiny's Child, Jamiroquai (that song from Napoleon Dynamite), and many more. The game features four difficulties, but you only start with easy and medium. (You have to unlock hard, and insane.) The game IS very hard, especially for new players. But once you get the hang of it, there's no letting go. This is a game that anyone can play. So give it a try, you won't be sorry. This game does'nt get the attention it deserves, so please pick a copy today!

    Portable rhythm gaming perfection. 0

    In the past few years, rhythm games have gone through a spectacular boom and a spectacular fall.  The Guitar Hero franchise has gone from having the best-selling third party game in history to selling less than 100K, and Rock Band isn't faring much better.  It's a shame that the fad-like nature of these two series have caused developers to mostly back away from music games altogether, and that is a real shame, because we need more games like Elite Beat Agents in this world.The premise is...

    A Rhythm Game That's A Bit Out Of Synch. 0

    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 ...
