  1. A great little puzzle game. [Oct 2008, p.97]
  2. 69
    The most shocking thing though is that even though the game fits all the criteria of a quick job, it doesn't feel like it when you play, and that is the most important part. The premise is simple and enjoyable, the soundtrack is fantastic and the amount of content is respectable.
  3. The license might not match up, and if the developer had created it without "Red Bull BC One" being attached, I believe that more people would have been willing to check it out, but as it stands now, it's definitely enjoyable.

    I enjoy watching breakdancing. And I enjoy this game's core connect-the-dots mechanic. But together, they create a confusing product that doesn't have much to do with the culture or the activity of b-boy battles.
  5. Entertaining enough but high-speed dot-to-dot can only last for so long. [Nov 2008, p.84]
  6. Overall, while the connect-the-dots mechanic in this game is decent enough, I’m not really sure if it warrants an entire game based around it.
  7. Apparently, the best way to make a game about an energy drink is to make poor-man’s version of DDR using a stylus to draw lines.
  8. The game is nothing more than a poorly veiled series of connect-the-dot challenges.
  9. Red Bull BC One has very little to offer to anyone.
  10. This is really different, this is kind of strange, this isn't all that much fun - no matter how you spruce it up, connect the dots is still connect the dots.

    Unfortunately, you don't break dance at all. Instead, you connect dots while a blocky character on the top screen spins on his head.
  12. The graphics are awful, the hip soundtrack uninspiring and the pre-match taunting cringeworthy. [Nov 2008, p.75]
  13. Don't be fooled by the title of this game. Red Bull BC One - BC stands for Breakdance Championship - is everything but a breakdance game. Connecting dots within a timelimit isn't our idea of making badass moves. The puzzling takes so much of your attention that you don't have time to admire the dancing guy. What's stands is an outdated puzzle game with little inspiration.
  14. The kind of thing you might play as a distraction, like in a mini-game, but in this case it’s all there is. And it sucks.
  15. Instead of a timing-based rhythm game, which has worked well in the past for DS music games like Elite Beat Agents, Red Bull BC One went down the most shallow route possible. The result is an utter time-waster, with decent music that wont make you forget that you're playing a less-amusing version of kindergarten busywork.
