    Rhythm Heaven Megamix is a bright, colourful collection of zany rhythm-based minigames for the 3DS that is easily recommendable to fans of the genre and newcomers to the series.

    Without a doubt the best Rhythm Paradise game so far, Rhythm Paradise Megamix is the ultimate package - almost like Nintendo's own NOW That's What I Call Music compilation. Rather than some half-baked bundling of past releases together, the team has taken the most loved rhythm mini-games from the past, spruced them up, pieced them together nicely on 3DS, covered them with comical storylines, and then whipped up a fresh batch of mini-game goodness to add in, just for good measure.

    If you ever wondered what would happen if you cross the minigame madness of Wario Ware with a ridiculous story and add rhythm game mechanics, this is the one to look out for.

    This is the best Rhythm Paradise. Bright colorful cartoony charm and cleverly fun minigames.

    Crazier than ever, this Megamix compiles the very best of Rhythm Heaven, not only through the stages, remastered or new, but also with a formula improved by a more accessible approach and the proven digital controls. Here is the perfect occasion to (re)discover this unique combination of music and game design literally pushed beyond the stars, a much more ambitious performance than it seems, that deserves rapturous applause, waiting for an encore.

    Rhythmic game cut to an absolute core. Lots of minigames, simple visuals, a dynamic soundtrack and squeezing one or two buttons. And it is stiff as excrement. [Issue #270]

It's got all the charms of Warioware but in a nice, rhythm game format, with the games lasting much longer than the micrograms. As a musician, this game is really helpful in keeping my eternal bpm in sync with the rhythm and it's got so much content. Some of the games are quite hard and really test your prow for rhythm, but at the end of the day, going back to the tougher games forces you to overcome the challenges and improves your skills. I feel that one user (fadula) that gave this game 2 stars was severely harsh, my advice would be to ignore him and check out the demo for yourselves as well as take the advice from all us positive reviews.

    When you first start playing it, it feels really short and easy. Which is great for those who are new to the series, but if you're experienced with rhythm games then the beginning will feel a tad slow. As you get further, you will unlock more songs that slowly increase in difficulty. Towards the end there were some songs I wanted to retry just to get the hang of it. Thankfully it never felt too hard, but were a decent challenge near the end.
    As you play each song, you earn coins to spend on little trinkets. So when you find that song you really enjoy, you can spend coins to just buy the music with in game coins! Listen to your favorite songs as much as you like.
    You can also play locally with a friend through wireless play. It's even more enjoyable when playing with friends. You can do this to earn a different kind of currency to buy more songs to play with. You can also do it solo if you want.

    In short, if you really enjoy rhythm games then I suggest getting this game. The colorful characters and great music make a wonderful combination. I love this game!

The only complaint I have is that the difficulty is toned down evidently. But besides that it is great as it has a lot of rhythm games and has a funny story with a funny ending which shows that this game is good for anyone. And that it's not the story that matters in this game, it's the entertainment of the actual gameplay. And even now I'm still working to unlock everything! Expand

Megamix isn't a bad purchase and it's wonderful that it was localized, but i'd recommend any of the earlier games in the series, including the original Rhythm Tengoku, over it. Expand

Unfortunately, Megamix fails to doThe Rhythm Heaven series is a collection of innovative games that feature engaging gameplay for all ages. Unfortunately, Megamix fails to do much new, rehashing the majority of its minigames as direct copies from the original source. Very unfortunate purchase unless you're new to the franchise.

    The difficulty is toned down considerably, making the main campaign feel like more of a grind than an adventure. The character design is good, and the art style remains just as charming. The production value is reasonably high for a downloadable title, but it's definitely not worth full retail price if you've played one of the previous games in the series. It seems almost like a quick cash grab rather than a new game.
