    Great. Simply great.

    Imagine playing Pong, but without a paddle on the other side of the screen and what you're try to hit is flying at you while keeping up with a techno beat. This is Bit.Trip Beat. Bit.Trip Beat is a fun that is only for W... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Bit.Trip Beat

  • Review Score:7

    Very interesting concept, good execution through the gameplay, just a little too hard for me...

    Let me tell you I am really into techno and a sub genre of techno that started in new york: chip tune, also known as 8 bit techno (music, mainly techno, made from old game boys and NES's and the like). What this game is... Read Full Review

    Awesomely Retro

    The first thing you'll say about this game is "Old-Skool" Everything, from gameplay, music, graphics, is presented as if it had been pulled from your Grandpa's 2600. Well, maybe not that far. The gameplay for this gam... Read Full Review

    Party like it's the 80's with up to four players in this unique rhythm experience.

    Everything comes from something. We were before we became. From life comes rhythm, and from rhythm comes life. We are beings of information. Everything is a conduit for learning. We communicate in bits and bytes. An... Read Full Review

    Your eyes will probably bleed and you may convulse also.

    Just to start I'll say that Bit.Trip Beat is better than Void I think. For all the games that have warnings about having some kind of seizure while playing, Bit.Trip Beat might just be the one that it's actually true ... Read Full Review

    Retro, focus and concentration. The three words that describe Bit. Trip Beat.

    Do you like retro gaming? Did you like or did you even know Pong back in the days? Pong was founded in 1972 by Atari. In short: It is a 2D table tennis game that you play against either a computer controlled opponent or ... Read Full Review

    On the Beat

    This is the first in what I feel is a very good and ambitious online game series and it still holds up. There really isn't much to say it's pretty much a simple concept, you control a paddle and hit the balls that com... Read Full Review

    Bit. Trip Beat is a unique, immersive game that sports more longenevity than you might think.

    I called it. When I first saw the concept for Gajin's first game, Bit Trip Beat, I deemed it an instant win. Super-difficult pong set to chiptone music. It was almost the coolest thing I've ever seen, and here's the ... Read Full Review

    Well... This game is...

    A wicked fun game! I got it today (4/4/09) and I've played it for an hour or so. I've enjoy every "bit" (pun intended) of it. Although it is hard it is pretty fun (very fun) and very short (only 3 levels) but they take a... Read Full Review

    Very fun! It's pong with a musical twist!

    Bit.Trip Beat is the WiiWare that I've been waiting for. Just like Megaman 9, it brings back a retro feel in a new game. The graphics are a combination of retro squares and rectangles, along with three-dimensional backgr... Read Full Review
