The cute, not-so-scary creatures of Gabrielle's Ghostly Groove give the game a lot of appeal. Monsterville is a fun and funny world to spend some time in. The characters may be a bit too talky, though -- there's a huge amount of dialogue to read through -- and a little jolt to the pacing would have helped a bit. The actual gameplay is pretty standard fare for a music-rhythm title: You watch the little skulls appear in time to the beat and you tap on cue. It's enjoyable, but nothing you haven't seen before.
