Rhythm Thief has a lot of cool stuff going for it. None of it is anything fantastically original (seemingly Lupin-inspired in story and Layton-inspired in adventure gameplay), but the mini-games are fun and the story is a lighthearted bit of fun. It does feel very storybook-like and aimed toward children, but the gameplay can be pretty challenging at times so it's probably worth a look if you're into music-based games. The soundtrack is pretty solid and compliments the stages well. There's also a handful of stuff to unlock, including optional levels (which can be happened upon during story play or bought later if missed, as I understand it) and optional story chapters that expand upon some of the side characters a bit more. I'll likely finish the game up and give the side stories a shot, but in the end, I can't see Rhythm Thief sticking to my shelf for long after I've completed it. I'd definately recommend it if you're looking for something a little different, but I do have a feeling it's mostly going to be forgotten after a few months have passed.
