Posted on January 23, 2008, William What's The Best Nintendo DS Game So Far?
The Nintendo DS library has been expanding rapidly for a couple years and great titles come out all the time. People are always asking me what my favorite DS game is and that’s honestly an extremely tough question to answer.
While hanging out at a friend’s house, I became exposed to an interesting game called Daigasso! Band Brothers. At first glance, I assumed it would be like all the other rhythm games I have come to love. I certainly underestimated this title and it has quickly become my all-time favorite DS game. Unfortunately, Daigasso! Band Brothers was never released in North America, but there are some titles that are very similar to it.
Daigasso! Band Brothers is a DJ style rhythm game where you basically play parts of multiple instruments in each song. Unlike most other portable rhythm games, you are not simply playing a pattern of buttons to make a recorded track play. In DBB, you are actually playing the notes and your skills are crucial to success in the game. This is really a rhythm game that makes sense for people with backgrounds in real music. In addition to all that, you can also compose your own songs through the simple, yet interesting interface.
Daigasso! Band Brothers was released in Japan for the Nintendo DS in 2004 as a launch title, yet it still retains high value as a game. I usually don’t expect much from portable titles. Any portable game that can hold my attention for more than an hour is a winner in my book. This game could probably hold my attention until the end of time. There are 38 songs in the game which include the genres of K-Pop, World, Classic, Television and Games (which includes some great classics from titles like Mario and Zelda).
If you ever get the chance to check out this title, I suggest doing so. It’s by far the most enjoyable DS game I have ever played. Feel free to drop your opinions into the comments section below. I’d love to hear what game you think is the best in the DS library.
