"If you’re anything like me, you miss the incredible amount of personality the rhythm game genre use to have. Colorful characters and original music were par for the course when games like Parappa the Rapper and Space Channel 5 released. But as time marched on, the genre became synonymous with licensed music and rigid note charts.
Rhythm Thief & the Emperor’s Treasure brings the character-driven style back to rhythm games while, for better or worse, experimenting with some rudimentary adventure game ideas. The result isn’t perfect, but it’s a game you won’t soon forget."
