Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure Review
This is how rhythm games get their groove back.
SEGA brings back the funk with its latest rhythm game, Rhythm Thief and the Emperor's Treasure.
We’re glad to see the famed developer/publisher bring a fresh concept to the table, even when the game shows off its rough edges. Most characters fall flat in a story that doesn’t deliver on its promises. Predictably, the soundtrack is the most appealing part of the game, bringing plenty of rich and varied songs that you'll want to tap to over and over.
Unlike the Professor Layton titles, where characters will just shout random puzzles at you, Rhythm Thief's minigames actually fit well within the overall story. It's just a shame that the story isn't exactly worth that attention.
