Graphics: 5.0

The graphics on Rhythm Heaven Fever are amazing. All images are drawn clearly with easily distinguishable features. This applies to both animated characters like the monkeys and inanimate objects like swords. The motion is also smooth and free of glitches and inconvenient delays. Another great thing about the graphics design is the use of a wide variety of colors. Finally, you will appreciate the neat and well-distributed screen layout.

Gameplay: 4.5

Rhythm Heaven Fever is an action-packed music video game. The only negative aspect of the gameplay is that it does not follow any specific storyline. However, where it lacks in theme, it more than makes up for it in play mode variety. There are more than 50 mini-games for you to try out including Monkey Watch, Samurai Slice, and Shrimp Shuffle. The tests are divided into ten unlockable stages. At the end of each one is a Remix Stage that combines the challenges and rhythms from the previous levels in the same group.  

Each of these levels has its unique challenges that need to be completed. To conclude a specific task successfully, you need to play in sync with the background rhythm. Another major objective of the game is to accumulate collectibles like medals and bonus songs.

The game supports a multiplayer competition mode that allows up to 2 participants simultaneously. There are unique challenges and stages for this particular gameplay option.

Controls: 4.0

Rhythm Heaven Fever for Wii U can be played using the Wii Remote and Wii Remote Plus. These make keeping up with the beat very easy for an enjoyable gaming experience. They also increase the efficiency of the controls by improving accuracy. Activities that you can regulate vary from challenge to challenge. You might be stabbing peas with a fork in one and fighting a karate guru in the other.

Replay Value: 3.0

Rhythm Heaven Fever has decent replay value. One contributing factor is the availability of multiple gameplay options. You have different challenges to choose from and different songs to play along to. Another reason for the relatively high replay value is the presence of unlockables including extra rhythms. These keep things interesting even when playing the game again.

However, the lack of a specific plot and the repetitive nature of some of the challenges negatively impact replayability.


Rhythm Heaven Fever is an excellent game. The high-quality graphics and variable gameplay are without a doubt the best features. The rhythm-guided controls also make it enjoyable. Do not be surprised if you end up liking the beats more than the challenges. Unfortunately, the lack of a theme or alternative plots significantly reduces the replay value which means your interest in the various challenges may dwindle with time.
