Elite Beat Agents (DS)

 

Some of the diehard Nintendo DS owners out there might remember a little game called Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan! that was released last year. A ridiculously addictive and completely bizarre rhythm game that had a group of superhero cheerleaders solving the...

Elite Beat Agents Review

 

Nintendo provides plenty of rhythm/action greatness in its latest DS title...

Beat gameplay suits DS ; Unconventional style and humour ; Story suits rhythm/action gameplay

Score system can seem unfair ; There's not enough ; Dated visuals

A near-perfect example of the rhythm/action genre on the DS. Elite Beat Agents is stylish, fun and engaging from start-to-finish, and a highlight in the DS unique catalogue.

Undeniably unique to North American gamers, Elite Beat Agents is actually a partial sequel to a Japanese DS title released in 2005 called Osu! Tatakae! Quendan!. The developer, iNiS, changed the main characters from absurd male cheerleaders to slick...

Overall:Elite Beat Agents is simply one of the best DS games available for the handheld system, partly due to its unmatched nature. The snazzy presentation, addictive style of gameplay and seemingly endless replay value will offer up hours upon hours...

Elite Beat Agents (DS) Review

 

Just when you thought music games couldn't get any crazier, these men in black will show you how to keep the beat.

Elite Beat Agents is one of the reasons that the Nintendo DS is around today and that reason is innovation and creativity. There’s no way this game would succeed on another system. For a genre that has huge hits like Dance Dance Revolution and Guitar...

Elite Beat Agents

 

The popular rhythm/music genre has never really had a representative game on the various handhelds, as they often require their own specific wacky peripheral, whether it is maracas, bongos, a guitar, or a dance pad. Of course, the argument could be...

The beat don't stop, and we wouldn't want it to.

Challenging and fun; original and bizarre; tight gameplay and a great soundtrack

You need multiple game copies to really experience the multiplayer aspect

Consumer review by:

Fun game to play and show off

 

Anyone who likes music and has a sense of humor (and at least a modicum of rhythm) should enjoy this one. It literally takes 10 seconds to show someone how to play... tap the numbered circles and drag across the sliders. From there it's just about...

Fun and different gameplay ; Goofy animated stories alongside each song ; No game could be easier to learn than this ; Wide range of difficulties keeps it attainable but challenging for anyone

Stories just repeat for each difficulty level, so once you've worked through the easiest level, you've seen (almost) all the actual content there is ; Won't track progress for more than one player

Consumer review by:

Fun Game!

 

Go and buy it!

Where do I begin? This game is loads of fun! The different difficulties poses this game from no challenge at all to hand sweating hard (great range). This has got to be the only game that uses the full potential of the touch screen. I recommend this...

My hands and forearm muscle started hurting after a while. :D

Fun, fun, fun.....FUN!

 

Pick it up if you have any love a music and video games.

Nifty musical game, great music and gameplay makes this a challening addition to your DS collection

A few more songs would have been nice, but good selection overall. I love the 80s! LOL

Product Specifications

The public knows of government agencies like the FBI and CIA, but little is known of this super-secret agency. Code-named "Elite Beat Agents, " these men in black are heroes' heroes and the coolest group of guys this world has ever known. Of course, according to official records, they do not exist. Their leader, an ex-CIA agent named Commander Kahn, scans the world for cries of help. When he finds one, he dispatches the agents, who assist their targets by performing a song and dance. The hypnotic nature of their rocking revives the targets with "Groovy" energy that boosts their willpower and helps them overcome their obstacles. Every stage is presented in a storyline fashion. All stages share similar basic elements and game flow: The player gets introduced to the target's problem in a comical intro. Commander Kahn dispatches the agents to the scene. The agents arrive in a special "Beat Transport" that is tailor-made for the situation. The song starts as the agents and player meet the target. By tapping and tracing patterns that appear on-screen, players play along with the song's rhythm. The animated story changes depending on how well the player performs. After each section, the player gets judged. Depending on the Elite-o-meter's judgment, the story will go well or poorly. If the player makes it through the whole song, he or she will be judged on the whole thing and get one of three endings.
