There are two likely requisites for enjoying Theatrhythm Final Fantasy: Curtain Call. The first is to have an appreciation for the curious pleasures of Japanese role-playing games (and Final Fantasy games in particular). The second is the ability to enjoy relatively simply rhythm-based music games. Kids possessing only one or the other of these traits may still have an OK time with Square Enix's latest musical adventure, but those who appreciate both just might find it a little slice of Japanese rhythm gaming heaven.

The recognizable songs -- which should satisfy most Final Fantasy fans on a gut, emotional level -- will bring about memories of the games from which they originated, summoning images of riding chocobos through green fields and battling epic bosses. And the light RPG-style setup, complete with character growth and seemingly endless unlockables, will keep completionists glued to their consoles for weeks. Some songs end a bit too abruptly and will leave fans wishing for more, and the online arena seems packed with expert players against whom rookies don't stand much of a chance, but this terrific little rhythm game still earns an enthusiastic recommendation, especially for anyone with fond memories of this series' classic battle ballads and majestic field scores.
