  • Women in Horror for Halloween
    It’s that time of year again where the weather is starting to cool down and the Halloween decorations are being put out. For me once it hits end of September my TBR becomes nothing, but horror and thriller novels. As a big mood reader the seasons and holidays determine what I want to read next. […]
  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]

Elite Beat Agents Review

If you’re looking for a videogame that you can casually play between homework assignments and have a blast every time you decide to pop it in your Nintendo DS, look no further than Elite Beat Agents.

EBA is a rhythm game, so fans of DDR and Guitar Hero will love this one. You have to tap and slide numbered circles with a stylus to the beat of twenty different songs.

The soundtrack includes hits such as “Y.M.C.A.,” “Sk8er Boi,” “You’re the Inspiration,” and “The Anthem,” and while they are not performed by their original artists, these renditions stay true to the popular versions of the songs that we hear today.

Only half of the fun lies in actually tapping out rhythms. The other half is in the game’s premise: people around the world get themselves into ridiculous scenarios, and the Elite Beat Agents have to dance to save them.

Throughout the game you will witness the Agents doing everything from helping a teenage babysitter tame the wild kids so she can suggest going steady with a football player to saving the world from an alien invasion. Each scenario is conveyed through extremely entertaining manga-style scenes.

Beware: the difficulty is high. You have to be very precise when tapping beats or your score will suffer, and the game gets hectic at times. Once you get the feel for it, there are plenty of scenarios to unlock and even more to do in the multiplayer mode.

If you own a Nintendo DS, you should get Elite Beat Agents as soon as possible; you and your friends will enjoy it thoroughly.
