I don't like Forces's art direction. While I think it fits the theme of the game, and that's a good thing, the levels look too sameish to me. I prefer Colors and Generations regarding this, but that's my taste. I didn't know that, the level looks very good. If I had to guess, I would say they decided to ease up the levels because they thought Forces would be bought by children, while Mania could be harder because it would be bought by old-school fans.
