This lively game from Namco is based on Taiko, the traditional Asian style of drumming and dance. Though similar in concept to the contemporarily released Donkey Konga, this PlayStation 2 title is actually based on an arcade game that predates both console releases. Using a special drum controller, players are challenged to keep the beat with style as the music plays. The North American version of Taiko Drum Master features more than two dozen songs, including covers of pop hits such as "Material Girl," "Love Shack," and "My Sharona," familiar classical music like Beethoven's "Symphony No. 5" and Bizet's "Carmen Prelude," and original themes from Namco games such as Ridge Racer and Soul Calibur II. ~ T.J.
