I think it's really fun. I don't play too many rhythm games, but this one definitely has that over-the-top "fun factor" that I look for. For one thing, it is just about the happiest game you'll ever play. There's also just something about banging on a drum with sticks that never fails to amuse me. The drum that comes with the game is tough, so you can wail away on it pretty hard without worrying about damaging it.
I have the American version, and the song selection isn't bad. I'm not a big fan of most of the popular songs, but I really enjoy the Namco tunes and all the classical music.
As far as difficulty goes, there's a very wide variety. Each song has four difficulty levels, and the songs themselves vary greatly in tempo and rhythms. There are still a couple of songs I can't beat on "Oni mode", and a lot of them still provide me with an adequate challenge.
While we're on the subject, does anyone happen to know if there are any sequels announced for America?
EDIT: Oh, and about gameplay modes, there really aren't too many. That is definitely a lacking point in the game. There's just the default mode, and three mini-games you'll get tired of pretty quickly. Again, I'm talking about the American version here.
