From the review, "Taiko no Tatsujin DS was a huge success and continues to be a top seller with more than 500,000 copies sold in Japan. Part of its success stems from the novelty of the game - the touch screen has a drum, which you tap on with two included styli in time to the beats.
If you're looking for the complexity of Ouendan, then don't look here. Taiko DS is a music game, yes, but it is more simple and relies more on rhythmic tapping than carefully executed and ordered taps and drags." 6.5/10
