It's also now a series of guides to Beatmania, Dance Dance Revolution and the rest of the BEMANI series of rhythm games by Konami. While not comprehensive, it should begin to answer some of the questions that you might have about the games. Please note that this FAQ only covers the Playstation2 release of Drummania. For a more comprehensive look at Drummania and the rest of the BEMANI series, including things like Soundtracks (audio CDs), strategy guides, portable LCD games (the BEMANI Pocket games), and much much more, please check out my longer work titled DJ Syndrome: The BEMANI Series FAQ. All of the information contained in this FAQ is also available in the longer, more comprehensive work titled "DJ Syndrome: The BEMANI Series FAQ". This document is merely a scaled down version that only pertains to the Playstation2 release Drummania (the arcade version is _not_ covered, although much of the info may still apply). Title: Drummania System: PS2 Intro: Drummania is a first in many aspects for Konami. Besides the obvious 'first BEMANI game for PS2', the title is the first to utilise the link-up feature that many of the newer arcade versions feature. By selecting 'Session Mode', drummers can grab a friend, as well as a Guitar Freaks controller or two, and play together. Drummania also features the first high-quality standard controller. While Beatmania had the high-quality DJ Station PRO released around the time of Append 3rd Mix, Drummania has its own high-quality Drummania Controller available right at release, putting other standard controllers (the ASCII Beatmania Controller, the DDR mats, etc.) to shame. Finally, Drummania is the first BEMANI game to be available in a special controller/game package, let alone only available that way. But beside the firsts that the game features, it is also one of the most kinetic and fun BEMANI titles available. Now if we could just do something about that price... 0.02: Stage Flow___________________________________________ (note that each song is playable once per game, so if you play Ska Ska No.1 in Stage 1, it will not be in Stage 2 or 3, etc.) _____Normal Mode Stage 1-------------->Stage 2-------------->Stage 3 Eyes of kids Cutie Pie Good Times I think about you ONION MAN Ska Ska No.1 Cutie Pie Good Times Happy Man ONION MAN Ska Ska No.1 River crossin' Good Times Happy Man HYPNOTICA Ska Ska No.1 River crossin' When I dream of you Happy Man HYPNOTICA Ultimate Power River Crossin' When I dream of you Koi no DIAL 6700 Ultimate Power Across the Nightmare Koi no DIAL 6700 _____Real Mode Stage 1-------------->Stage 2-------------->Stage 3 Eyes of kids Look at me Look at me Look at me ONION MAN ONION MAN ONION MAN Sunny side street Sunny side street Sunny side street Ska Ska No.1 Ska Ska No.1 Ska Ska No.1 Heaven is a '57...
