Phase is exactly what iPod gaming should be about—rather than reinventing the iPod as an also-ran game system, making it a truly unique game experience. If you’re a fan of Guitar Hero or similar music games, you absolutely need Phase on your iPod.

Phase is constant, re-playable fun on nearly every song it encounters. It gives a rock-star hight without the late-night emergency room visits or morning regrets.

Phase is a must-own for rhythm game fans, and a true killer app for iPod games in general. At $5 it's a complete no-brainer. The game has far-reaching implications for the entire rhythm genre, to boot. When this tiny iPod game can create great beat patterns for a decent percentage of my music collection, why pay a premium to download new tracks for Guitar Hero III or even Harmonix's own Rock Band?

The game’s minor flaws are far outweighed by the ability to put any music into the game and have it play as well as any built-in track from other rhythm games. If you’re not sure if you’re going to buy a portable music player or whether to go with an iPod, this title should convince you. If you’ve already got one, download this title – it will likely be the best $5 you spend on games in a long time.

Ultimately, near-limitless value can be squeezed out of Phase thanks to its inventive use of music stored on your iPod. In fact, all of the game's great appeal comes as a direct result of this feature. Problematic note patterns have the game missing a beat, but on the whole it's and experience that's definitely worth tuning into.

If anyone is still on the fence for the game, here is what you need to know: It is made by a great developer. It is easily the best iPod game. It is only $5.00. (Alright, $4.99 plus tax.) But seriously, this is not Sophie’s Choice. Save five bucks, or get the game. While it has some flaws, it does gets so much right. Plus, it’s only five dollars people! It serves as a great alternative to just listening to music, and a great way to lose time.

If you’re that guy who sits around at home playing Rock Band all day, or maybe you love your iPod a big fluffy lot, or maybe buying more Harmonix games simply makes your balls feel bigger, you should take the splurge and memory space on your iPod and get the $5 download. It’s quirky and fun enough to make you feel too distracted to jump on your feet and dance when listening to your expansive collection of Musical Theater Showstoppers.
