Orgarhythm is neither technically nor artistically top in class, but it has an organic look to it that complements the natural motif that permeates the entire game. The color codings stand out and support the rock-paper-scissors elemental relationships. Unfortunately, the action looks as engaging as it is during gameplay -- that is to say, not at all. The God of Light marches at an agonizingly slow speed and his assorted flavor minions are the polar opposite of flashy in combat. Whether engaging in close quarters fisticuffs or picking off baddies from a distance, none of it has any impact or gives you the sense that you're in the least bit involved.
Like Patapon before it, Orgarhythm depends on its sound design to fuel the gameplay. Luckily, the soundtrack is vibrant and primal -- an absolute must for a game that requires you to do a lot of finger tapping. Jethro Tull-esque panflute glissandos and pulsing rhythms go a long way in establishing the game's religious tone. Every little thing you do is accompanied by a little aural flourish, whether it's the aforementioned taps or the plinking of keys when you draw the line that deploys your troops.
