Great music = great game.

User Rating: 7.9 | Taiko Drum Master (w/Taiko Controller) PS2
Simply put, the music in taiko Drum master is just plain good. Expecting to hear a bunch of Japanese pop, I was surprised when I heard an oldie-but-goodie by the jackson 5. "A-B-C, it's as easy as 1-2-3-" for my first song. That euro band's song "I get knocked down", the theme to Katamari Demaci and even the american theme to dragon ball z, "rock the dragon". When is all is said and done however, I must admit that the game could use more songs. The classical music is of limited appeal and the japanese tunes arn't all huge big name songs the way the american songs are. Also, there may not be much depth of gameplay the way there is in dance dance revolution. Basically once you get the hang of Takio Drum Master you'll have to play on "hard" to get a real challenge. (for me this happened the first day) That being said, this is a great music game for 60$. Because in a music game, it's all about the music and this game has some classics that are a blast to drum to.
