Sorry... Can only get one... I'll get one or the other in a couple weeks. Mario vs. DK 3 and MFC are keeping me busy.

Do you like rhythm games, like Elite Beat Agents, or Platformers, like Kirby?

If rhythm buy Rhythm Heaven
If platformers buy Starfy

I haven't played Beat agents, but I really like Kirby. I like the Rockband series too... would that count as rhythm? I've read several reviews for each and they're mixed so I don't know. It doesn't help that I'm watching a Starfy commercial at the moment either.

Ahem. I think I'll take a page from Charlie the Unicorn's book with this reply:
Rhythm Heaven:
Pros:

  • Simple yet endearing graphics
  • 50 addicting minigames, almost all of which are great
  • Normally upbeat, memorable soundtrack
  • Variety and value
  • Wacky charm and distinct Japanese feel
  • Understands what the player wants
  • Rewarding/fulfilling
  • "Skip a minigame if it's too hard for you" option

Cons:

  • Sometimes insane difficulty
  • Almost strictly for the musically inclined
  • Provides little in the way of constructive criticism
  • Some vocals and lyrics bordering on awful

Overall: 8.7/10*

The Legendary Starfy:
Pros:

  • Packed with content
  • Adorable story and characters
  • Good soundtrack
  • Makes fairly clever use of the DS hardware
  • Quality graphics
  • Well thought-out levels
  • Multiplayer, while scarce, is implemented masterfully
  • Just plain fun minigames (once you figure out how to play them)

Cons:

  • Extremely easy
  • Sometimes too much is happening in the game at one time, though that might be a pro for some
  • Cluttered menus and features
  • Most collectibles are pointless
  • Character voice snippets can get annoying

Overall: 8.5/10*

Feel free to correct me about anything and everything in this post, and note that I am not recommending Rhythm Heaven over The Legendary Starfy, because I don't think these games should really be compared.
*I have not beaten either of these games completely yet, so these are not complete impressions.

Since Rhythm Heaven is the most fun I had with a game in a long time, I'd always recommend it above all else. ;)

Now I'm confused again. I might get Conduit because I haven't gotten a new Wii game in a while.

Apparently Conduit isn't very long, but I do love multiplayer shooters. I think Red Steel currently has the best; but I will probably get Conduit.

@Odnetnin: It's a possibility. I'm not entirely sure yet though; I was just thinking about it yesterday and thought that might be a good game to get.

@minial: If you love multiplayer FPS, buy CoD4 right now. Don't own a 360/PS3/PC? Tough luck, go buy one :)

As for what you actually care about, I think The Conduit will last you the longest, RH is best if you want a quirky unique rhythm game, and Stafi is a safe bet if you like platformers.

Overall, wait till The Conduit gets some reviews, then decide.

If you can, get both.
If you can't get Starfy. I got Starfy the other day and I love it!
But, I've also heard that Rhythm Heaven is a pretty good game, too!

@Dark Link: I can only get one... and I might pick up both over time, but Its between Conduit, Starfy, and Wii Sports Resort currently, but I'm leaning towards Starfy right now. Plus I have at leasty two weeks to decide so...

Actually, the Wii version of Ghostbusters looks good. Is it worth the cash? I'm a huge fan of the series, and the game sounded good as soon as I heard about it.

Well, I'm back to Starfy after reading some crud reviews for ghostbusters. It [Starfy] sounds like the perfect game so far, unless something good comes out soon that I can't live without. My freind plans to get Conduit, so I'll just borrow it from him.
