    Given the game's simplicity, one can rightly wonder why this title carries a recommended retail price typical of a game stamped with the Nintendo brand. Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise makes one thing glaringly obvious: it's time for the Wii U.

    Can't we have a review that doesn't mention money. How about it will make you laugh and dance at the same time. Do other games even strive for such greatness or do they go for the cheap thrills? It's a difficult game though so make sure you are ready to be shown your rhythm ineptitude. Full Review »

    It's an incredible sequel to the DS game with simple buttons (no motion controls) allowing you to show true skill and not blame the controls for anything. Very funny, and a steal at the $29 MSRP price tag. Buy this if you like innovative and fresh new ideas from Nintendo. Full Review »

    Without a doubt one of the best (and last) games the Wii has to offer. Part of the amazing, yet underrated "Rhythm Heaven" series, "Fever" is the best one yet. While the last on on the DS implemented touch and flick mechanics, "Fever" simply uses the A-Button and B-Trigger with no motion controls whatsoever. While the rhythm challenges are all fun and varied, what sets this game apart from the others is it's amazing soundtrack and delightful character design. Pick this one up. This is one I'll also recommend to people getting the Wii U later this year. You don't want to miss the fun this game has to offer. Full Review »
