    jp's Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan! (DS)

    [June 4, 2015 06:50:33 PM]
    So, finished this one now! (thanks longish plane ride). Unless I'm missing something due to my ignorance of the Japanese language - Ouendan 1 and 2 are essentially the same game in terms of gameplay (though different in terms of songs, and stories, etc.).

    It really is the characters and their stories that really make this game special (for me). This time around one of the characters is a ghost (young man) who literally walks down these long steps from heaven to communicate with his (grieving?) former girlfriend. It's super cheesy, but super funny (e.g. he poltergeists a coffee cup knocking it over and leaving a heart-shaped coffee puddle! Awwww....)

    I get the feeling that some of the characters from the 1st game appear in the second game as well, but I'm not sure. Also, the finale is really familiar...(something huge will destroy the earth). I guess the main difference is that Ouendan 2 has a two-stage final stage (oh no, they're dead! wait, they're not!) while Ouendan 1 just has the final song.

    I'm also trying to recall what happened in Elite Beat Agents. I kind of want to say that it took bits and pieces from Ouendan 1 and 2...but I'm not sure. (I recall the finale in EBA as a two-parter...but I could be wrong).

    Started playing this on the bus yesterday and no major surprises. I wasn't able to figure out how to erase the carts previous saved games, but I guess I can deal with that.

    I did notice that Ouendan 2's songs let you skip the intro - an option that doesn't seem available in the first game. Bummer. I haven't failed a song yet, but I'm pretty confident I will at some point...and being able to skip the intro really helps with the pain of replaying the whole song (especially when you fail at the end...)
