Is this really the end of Theatrhythm? If so, Final Bar Line goes out with a massive bang. Including DLC, the total tracklist numbers around half a thousand songs, drawn not only from the diverse assortment of games in the Final Fantasy series but also the larger Square Enix library in general. Even if you don’t touch the DLC, you’ve got a whopping 385 songs to enjoy here. The new tricks in the charts add a bit of excitement even to the old familiar songs, and the refreshed presentation looks great. If you like music games or Final Fantasy, you’ll want Theatrhythm Final Bar Line. If you like both, you probably already bought it.
Wonderful game. I have spent hours and hours playing my favourite songs and discovering new ones. There are some quests, rpg mechanics and things like that, but I don't need them (they are nice, btw).
The main problem is that some main songs are missing and we need to buy the DLC to get them (like To Zanarkand).
Theatrhythm Final Bar Line is a labor of love that is worthy of loving back - it's game packed to the brim with iconic songs, unforgettable characters, and fun excuses to revisit and collect them all. Accessibility options, versatile difficulty levels, and simple yet addicting multiplayer help make a great package even greater. Any Final Fantasy fan owes it to themselves to dive into this game and take a musical trip down memory lane.
Theatrhythm Final Bar Line is the "tribute" game that FF's 35th anniversary needed, a title that brings together the best of its soundtrack with a fun and simple gameplay style that both casual and hardcore gamers will enjoy. Add hundreds of things to unlock and an adorable aesthetic, and you have a great game for the fans.
Theatrhythm Final Bar Line is the definitive game that brings us almost the entire anthology of music from the Final Fantasy games and others outside the franchise. They knew how to mix these two genres with style. However, on Switch it is way better to play it in portable mode.
It‘s a fan-feast for the ears, then, with a good sense of rhythm and lots of tracks. It‘s just a shame that its looks are somewhat disappointing and that it‘s comparably stingy in terms of extras commemorating the series‘ 35th anniversary.
Theatrhythm Final Bar Line is an absolute delight for fans of both great music and Final Fantasy. The game combines all of the classic Final Fantasy tunes with an exciting rhythm game, giving an entirely new twist to the series. The game itself is incredibly easy to pick up and play, with the basic mechanics being easy to learn, yet still providing a challenge in the higher levels. The soundtrack is composed of a wide variety of genres, featuring both classic and modern tracks from the Final Fantasy series. The game also features a variety of characters to play as, each with their own unique abilities and playstyles.
Overall, Theatrhythm Final Bar Line is an enjoyable and unique game that is sure to please fans of both great music and Final Fantasy. The game offers a great combination of rhythm and exploration, and the soundtrack is sure to please fans of the series. It is a must-buy for anyone who loves both music and Final Fantasy.
The game is fine, as far as rhythm games go, but they've severely over-filled the starting games (which I'd suspect are those you can access in the demos), and ignored the rest.
FFVII has 7 characters. FFX has 3.
So for the first game, which you can unlock right away, there are nearly 2 full teams. For the second, you don't even have one team. Your options are play FFX levels without a full team or break your immersion having a random character from another game along for the ride.
The tutorials also need a lot of work. They're fine for the basic levels, but there are none I could find for the higher difficulties, which have new combinations of actions which are required. That would be somewhat less of a problem if the requirements for completing some levels wasn't to do so on the higher difficulty levels.
EDIT: I have discovered that not only to the DLCs only contain songs and no characters or scenes (semi-expected), but that the "news" option on the main page of the "Premium Digital Deluxe Edition" is just ads for more PAID DLC!
