Great soundtrack, less than stellar gameplay.

Overall, the game doesn't really do anything that its mobile version didn't already do, but nevertheless, it is still a fun game that I believe any BlazBlue fans or rhythm game fanatics should check out. Eat Beat: Dead Spike-san will remain in my heart as the quirky and cute rhythm game that left me smiling as it kicked my butt.

It's a polished rhythm game with a really enjoyable look to it, but there's just little replayability for a genre that is built upon that principle. This certainly won't give anyone their Elite Beat Agents fix, but it does show that the touch-based rhythm games are right at home on the portable.

Eat Beat Dead Spike San is an average mobile game of average value that lacks the genre variety and polish of similar games on the eShop. BlazBlue fans may appreciate the game more than average and hardcore players. A few hours of Eat Beat Dead Spike-san is more than enough to fill the stomach full of rock candy.
