Let me put it this way: THIS GAME IS BOTTLED-UP FUN! If you have a DS, you owe it to your system to get this game! Every few lines of song you get treated to a mini-cutscene that's generally at weird as the level intro 'scene.
Story? Take control of a team of Elite Beat Agents and inspire needy people under orders of your Commander Kahn! Don't look for any serious stories here, these people are hilariously desperate.
Gameplay is simple in theory, fun-time difficult in reality: On the touch screen, you have numbered dots with shrinking circles around them. When the shrinking circle reaches the edge of the dot, tap the dot to make the beat. Then you have to tap a dot then drag a ball around a lane. To really spin things up, you have the spinner! Spin that wheel until the meter's full!
Oh, and did I mention the hilarious dances the Agents are doing in to the music? Seriously.
So, anyone else saving the world from depression?
