The problem is, for a rhythm title, Alvin and the Chipmunks isn't particularly rhythmic. The sloppy note arrangements are often noticeably offbeat, and shockingly loose gameplay allows any note within a half-beat of the icon to count. Plus, the game compensates for the notes you miss by over-rewarding players for the ones they do hit. It makes for a remarkably effortless experience, even on the highest difficulty level, which just adds more notes to the mix. This lack of tight gameplay makes Alvin an adventure in soulless button tapping for anyone with a two-digit age.
