  • Summary: In Beat City, players must find their rhythm in order to restore Beat City to the vibrant, melodious city it once was. Using the stylus, players simply tap, swipe or hold on queue to the music’s beat in order to receive a high star rating within each mini-game. While players are tapping to the beat, they can watch the city transform right before their eyes ridding the city of Dame Isolde Minor and her Cacophony Corporation, who bring nothing but monotony. The better a player is at keeping the beat the more items are unlocked in the environment. [THQ] Collapse

  1. Beat City's delightful presentation and supercatchy chip-tune soundtrack will get your toes tapping and your head banging in no time. [May 2010, p.85]
  2. 75
    A decent addition to any rhythm game enthusiast's collection, no matter what the age or experience level. However, older or more experienced gamers may find that the game lacks challenge and that the game's aesthetic is a tad too cheery.
  3. The game is short, and it won't take much time at all to complete. What Beat City lacks in length, it makes up for with fun, rhythm-based gameplay and a silly sense of humor.
  4. Fun series of mini-games loses its appeal all too quickly.
  5. Not the best rhythm game, but one of the better.
  6. Only the coldest of hearts could fail to find joy in whispering sweet nothings to a pretty young girl while an old man is distracted by a giant monkey. [July 2010, p.119]
  7. Little more than an uninspired remake of a vastly superior original. [June 2010, p.65]
