    This is a great game at a great price for a console currently gasping gravely for games. If your Wii is still plugged into a TV-like device, Rhythm Heaven Fever is a game that demands your attention.

    There's no detachment between the image, the sound and the player's actions. Everything works perfectly and makes each minigame an extremely amusing experience.

    The worst thing I can say about Rhythm Heaven Fever is that it doesn't seem like it utilizes the Wii all that well. It looks sharp, but not in a way that it couldn't have on a portable. The motion isn't used, the IR is optional, and it only uses 2 buttons. That's not to say that the game is bad because of it- it just doesn't seem like a good fit for a home console, especially one as unique as the Wii.

    Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise is not the game that will make people buy back their Wii consoles from eBay. But it might be the game that ends the endless cavalcade of mini-games – and what a finale it is.

    Beat the Beat: Rhythm Paradise is one of the best mini-game compilations on the Wii, which is quite remarkable considering the competition.

    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 forCan'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. Expand

A great entry for the series after the also amazing ds entry. I mean some of the games might be a bit challenging at first but they are all doable, and getting the 50 perfects will take you a lot of time! The simplicity of the mechanics and characters is proportional to the fun you have playing! Also great to play with friends, as it is also quite funny. The multiplayer is a bit lacking, though, but it is actually not necessary to play with friends, you can always take turns for the songs.

    Extremely good, buy it if you can.

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. Expand

But unfortunately in the transition from the handheld version it is no longer as amazing. This saddens me. The minigames don't seem as creative and the music as a whole isn't as catchy. There are some standouts however. And the multiplyaer mode and extras boost the score to 9. Expand

With the press of a single button you beat the rhythm, and if successful unlock more songs, mini games, multiplayer games, mini-mini games, And specialties. The only downer is that some songs might be a little to hard if you want to unlock a perfect, meaning you may not miss a single tone. Expand
