It’s that time of year again! We’re counting down the days to Christmas with our own little “advent calendar” – one new game to play over the holiday season each and every day.

As the year winds down, things get really busy. We’ve got Christmas parties to attend, the end of year rush on work, and all the rest of it. But it’s also a time where we take holidays, find a moment to relax, and enjoy the company of others. This is the best chance to catch up on some key games that you might have missed from the year… or just play that multiplayer game that you’ve been waiting to get a crew together for.

Day 15: Theatrhythm Final Bar Line

Read our review here.

Get ready for the biggest rhythm game ever made, with hundreds of pieces of music and a celebration of everything that Final Fantasy has ever stood for. Theatrhythm is pure nostalgia, in that every piece of music that you’ll hear in there is memories of favourite and emotional moments from the great JRPG series, and then all of that is backed up with some of the most wonderfully adorable art that you’ll ever see.

Theatrhythm Final Bar Line Review 2

Sure, none of the music is Wham, or Jingle Bells, or Christmas Eve (the greatest Christmas song is indeed a Japanese piece). But most of us who grew up with Final Fantasy have fond memories of unwrapping a Final Fantasy game and then spending the rest of the Christmas break devouring it. Those memories are very much Christmas, and that’s what Theatrhythm Final Bar Line gives us.
