OnlySP: When one hears “rhythm” game, images of Dance Dance Revolution and Guitar Hero are often some of the first to come to mind. Although these are the most common types of rhythm games out there, they are not the only ones. More and more games appear to be incorporating music deeper into the overall experience rather than just having something in the background to prevent silence. Even further, developers are bringing music to the forefront of the game, making it front and center and integral to the experience. Games like Rez and Child of Eden do this quite well by creating a musical experience through a shooting game. But Beatbuddy: Tale of the Guardians is a new take on a rhythmic experience.
