Final Fantasy has made its imprints in gaming, motion pictures and even concerts where major orchestras belt out beautiful soundtracks for packed audiences. We were unprepared for the next tendril of this franchise's legacy, the music-rhythm game Theatrhythm. As in other rhythm games, music is accompanied by colored orbs to tap along to, keeping pace and thus defeating enemies. Different circles have different requirements (some need a tap, while others demand directional swiping), and once the track listings get denser, so does the difficulty level.


RATING E for Everyone

PLOT Use the power of music to battle enemies

DETAILS Nintendo 3DS, $40

BOTTOM LINE A little off-key
