Rhythm Heaven Fever Review

Rhythm Heaven Fever, also known as Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise, is currently my favorite Wii game of 2012

If you are tired of motion controls, you’ll be happy to know that Rhythm Heaven Fever uses only buttons on the Wii Remote. The control scheme is very simple, yet intuitive. Every single mini-game uses the A button. Some mini-games use the A button and the A+B combination. You use the same two buttons throughout the game, which may seem repetitive but I felt like I was doing something different in almost every mini-game.

Rhythm Heaven Fever’s visuals are charming. Nintendo used an art style that fits the game and makes it stand out as being one of the most colorful games on Wii. The animations are fluid, crisp and bright, which makes the game fun to watch.

There are many great tunes and sounds throughout Rhythm Heaven Fever. Most mini-games sound completely different from each other and have unique music that goes along with the player’s controls. If you make a mistake, you’ll be punished with an annoying sound effect that lets you know your reactions are either too slow or too fast. If you play through a mini-game with little or no mistakes, you’ll be rewarded with pleasing music and smooth sound effects that flow naturally.

There are over 50 rhythm-based mini-games in Rhythm Heaven Fever. Although you may finish all major mini-games after a few hours, there are plenty of reasons to play each one over again. You can easily pass most mini-games with an “OK” rating but if you get little to no mistakes in a mini-game, you’ll get a “Superb” rating that awards you with a medal.

After getting a “Superb” rating on a mini-game, you will be randomly challenged to get a perfect score – which can be very difficult – on that mini-game in order to unlock bonus content. There are over 50 medals to collect and you need them to unlock extra rhythm games, which are well-worth the hard work.

For the first time in the series, there’s a multiplayer mode in Rhythm Heaven Fever. Using two Wii Remotes, two players can work together on completing 10 mini-games from the single-player mode. You can also get “Superb” ratings on the multiplayer games to earn medals and unlock even more rhythm games. Because this mode features mainly games that you’ve already played in single-player mode, the multiplayer option is rather forgettable. The multiplayer mode doesn’t detract the value of the game, because the single-player mode is sufficient to warrant a purchase.

If you haven’t already, purchase Rhythm Heaven Fever in North America for $29.99 MSRP. Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise will be released in Europe on July 6th.

          1. Thanks. I’ve contacted them, but I haven’t received a reply. I mentioned that it was WordPress in general that you have an issue with, along with MNN.

  4. This is my favorite Wii game to date. I couldn’t put the game down until I got perfect in every single game. Love Rap 2 and Remix 10 were by far the hardest to get perfect, but when I finally did it, it was the most rewarding feeling since getting all A ranks in Sonic Adveture 2!
