When people ask what you want to be when you grow up, do you reply "a princess?" If not (or if you're too old for people to even ask you that), don't bother with Rhapsody. This quirky RPG port of a PSone title has a reworked turn-based battle system that makes the already simplistic experience mind-numbingly dull. You control Cornet, a country girl with a crush on a prince, and her entourage of talking puppets. Every now and then Cornet breaks into some trite, insipid musical number, and then you regain control so you can complete humiliating goals like "wear a dress that makes you look beautiful." Ugh.
