If you've never imported a Japanese game before, now is the time. I came across a review of Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan! a few weeks ago on iPodLounge's 'Backstage' column and immediately knew I had to have it. Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan! is a rhythm/action game about cheerleaders. Male cheerleaders. Very serious male cheerleaders in black overcoats. When someone in town is in trouble, they call on the cheersquad to, well, cheer for them and inspire them to overcome whatever obstacles are in their way. You help a student study for an exam; a racehorse foil a burglar; a handsome ghost make contact with his girlfriend; a businessman defeat a giant blue rat; etc. You play by tapping the touchscreen on the DS in rhythm to the J-pop/rock soundtrack based on the visual cues you're given. As you tap correctly, the cheersquad cheers, and the story unfolds manga-style on the upper screen. It's one of the craziest games I've ever played... very challenging and addictive. I ordered my copy from YesAsia for $43 with free shipping. The game was delivered in about a week. And though it's all in Japanese (which I don't speak or read at all), it's very easy to follow due to the comic book style. There's a good translation guide at GameFaqs.com to help get through the menus. It's almost impossible to describe how much fun this game is in words, but here are some links to other reviews: Gamespot EuroGamer Geek On Stun Is anyone else playing this game? What other imports are worth buying (for non-japanese speakers)?
