     I have not played Rhythm Heaven Fever, but after seeing the trailer for it this past week, it looks like it could be a lot of fun.
     As for the hours reported, I think the game’s average reported already being more than 15 Hours “Per Person” is really good for the game, and shows that Wii owners are definitely playing the game a good bit.
     I think Rhythm Heaven Fever’s 15+ hours averaged per Wii console, and the overall positive reviews from critics and consumers, shows the game is worth its MSRP of $29.99. If you enjoy rhythm based music games, I think Rhythm Heaven Fever might be well worth taking a look at.
