Looney Tunes. They're classic, they're timeless, and now they headline a new rhythm game on the Nintendo DS. It's pretty clear that Looney Tunes Cartoon Conductor lifts most of its design inspiration from Elite Beat Agents but it's not a direct copy. The game's also incredibly challenging for a rhythm game with a seemingly younger skewing target age. You'll have to have a fancy for the old-school animation references as well as a taste for MIDI classical music to enjoy what this game has to offer, but on the whole it isn't a bad effort.
The last time the Looney Tunes license hit the Nintendo DS was in last year's Duck Amuck, a game with incredible animation production values but not much in the way of gameplay. In Looney Tunes: Cartoon Conductor it's the other way around: the gameplay is solid but at the expense of animation that really doesn't fit the style of the classic cartoons.
