Elite Beat Agents (DS, 2006)

Postby Retro STrife » October 7th, 2018, 3:13 pm

I'm over 10 years late to the party, but I just wanna say that this game rocks. Elite Beat Agents is one of the best-reviewed Nintendo DS games (88% metascore), yet it didn't do so well with sales. I bought it several years back, but never got around to playing it. Then I had a vacation this past week and was looking for a "pick up and play" style game to play on the plane. I brought Elite Beat Agents and it fit the bill perfectly. For those that haven't played it, it's a music rhythm game with a crazy sense of humor (crazy like Katamari Damacy, but in a different style). The Critic gave the game an A- in 2007, which I agree with, and I can say that the game still holds up perfectly today. A lot of older music games don't have that lasting appeal, but the control scheme is still great and the quirkiness is timeless. This is a one-of-a-kind game that I recommend checking out if you own a DS, even if you don't usually like music games.
