    Is this really the end of Theatrhythm? If so, Final Bar Line goes out with a massive bang. Including DLC, the total tracklist numbers around half a thousand songs, drawn not only from the diverse assortment of games in the Final Fantasy series but also the larger Square Enix library in general. Even if you don’t touch the DLC, you’ve got a whopping 385 songs to enjoy here. The new tricks in the charts add a bit of excitement even to the old familiar songs, and the refreshed presentation looks great. If you like music games or Final Fantasy, you’ll want Theatrhythm Final Bar Line. If you like both, you probably already bought it.

    Beautiful art design, wonderfully remastered songs, and over 300+ timeless gems from the Final Fantasy universe, with DLC promising even more from other games like Chrono Trigger, give Square fans more than enough to love here. Theatrhythm: Final Bar Line promised a celebration of its huge library of games and 100% delivered. With new gameplay mechanics, even those who have played the previous games can find something new to enjoy.

    Theatrhythm Final Bar Line is more than a love letter to Final Fantasy and its esteemed soundtracks—it’s a robust hybrid of RPG elements and rhythm gameplay, bolstered by accessibility options and a mountain of content, building on its 3DS forefathers in every way.

    Honestly, Theatrhythm Final Bar Line is pretty much a perfect game. It’s packed with content, has lots of fun stuff to unlock, features different ways to play, and encourages players to take a chance on higher difficulties. While I do think that Ultimate and Supreme almost go out of their way to be overly punishing, that doesn’t change how much I still enjoy this game. Even if you’ve never played one Final Fantasy game, you owe it to yourself to see what all the fuss is about in Theatrhythm Final Bar Line.

    Theatrhythm Final Bar Line is a fantastic game, no doubt about it. The gameplay is easy to learn but challenging to master, and the massive library of songs and characters gives players countless hours of content to enjoy.

    It‘s a fan-feast for the ears, then, with a good sense of rhythm and lots of tracks. It‘s just a shame that its looks are somewhat disappointing and that it‘s comparably stingy in terms of extras commemorating the series‘ 35th anniversary.

    Jogo que entregou tudo que eu poderia esperar de um jogo assim. Roda lindamente no Switch. Inclusive o online. Conteúdo gigantesco. As dlcJogo que entregou tudo que eu poderia esperar de um jogo assim. Roda lindamente no Switch. Inclusive o online. Conteúdo gigantesco. As dlc poderiam sim ser mais baratas. Mas acho que só mostram que haverá um forte suporte ao jogo pós lançamento. Jogos rítmicos são viciantes e muito gostosinhos. Esse é o melhor jogo rítmico que eu conheço. Valeu meu dinheiro pago. Espero que tenha dlc de df xvi, octopath 2, etc. Não saberia tirar nota desse jogo pois não consigo pensar em algo que ele deixe a desejar, nem em aspecto técnico nem em conteúdo. Só o valor das dlc que me incomodam um pouco. Expand

    While the game is nice, it lacks Freya Crescent and a few other favorite characters I like in the series. This overall dampens my experience.
