If I like rhythm games, but not FF what price would FF: Theatrythm be worth it?

I thought the demo was pretty good for a rhythm game, but if I have no connection to the Final Fantasy universe, what would be a good price point for it? I can currently get it for about $19 with a coupon or so.

Is it a good rhythm game on it's own, or do you need to have a love for Final Fantasy? Does it have enough content for those not into FF?

You don't need to like the games to appreciate the music. I'd say pick it up for $20-$25 if you're a rythm game fan. It's fun, regardless of your fandom for FF.

My friend has it and I have played it some, I think 20 dollars is fair, especially if you like rhythm games, (I don't particularily care for them but am a bit of a Final Fantasy fan.)

I say if you like the demo than you probably won't think 20 dollars is unfair, however bear in mind that the Final Fantasy nostalgia is a bit of why I liked it. If you really like rhythm games though I think you will enjoy it without knowing anything about FF.

I went into Theatrhythm with only a knowledge of FFIX in mind. I only played VII and VIII for a bit, and haven't even played the others.

I still loved the game just by the well-composed music.

I love Rhythm games and Final Fantasy. I thought the game was boring after 2 days or so. Might be different for you though.

I highly suggest Rhythm Thief and the Emperor's Treasure, in its place.

I'm not very good at rhythm games, but I'm loving Theatrhythm. I think it's more forgiving than most rhythm games. Level your characters, assign them skills that would make surviving the songs easier until you get the hang of things.
