Rhapsody: An Overly Cutesy Musical Adventure

I’m on my break from online school, so I’ve decided to do some serious gaming for the next two weeks. I started my gaming spree by re-playing Gyakuten Kenji aka Ace Attorney Investigations because I had this sudden urge be united with Miles Edgeworth. After beating that (and giving my glare of doom at the BIG BIG BAD), I quelled the urge to re-play the other games with Phoenix and Apollo, so I decided to play something on my humongous backlog.

I started playing Rhapsody: A Musical Adventure, a “musical” turn-based RPG, and so far it’s way too cute, easy, and just . . . TOO CUTE. I have never played its original PlayStation 1 version, so I cannot compare, but it’s . . . interesting. The game has a very simple plot where the girl has to go rescue a prince, the love of her life, and has a simple but incredibly fast battle system (which is a blessing since the encounter rate are pretty high). As for the characters, I am not enjoying the two main ones: Cornet and Kururu; in fact, I find the side characters to be more amusing. However, there are far too many girls for my taste.

This is supposed to be a short game (can be beaten in about ten hours), and I think I will speed through it and just beat it without completing everything. I have other games I’d like to play. We’ll see if I can stomach the cutesy-ness to reach the end . . .

    I’ve never seen a game like it before. In a weird, cutesy way I like it 😀 For the PS version, can you change the audio into Japanese? I think the Japanese voices tend to be better.

    I might have to check it out for myself.
