  • Summary: BeatBlasters III is a combination action-platformer and rhythm game set in a strange world filled with fantastical, original, creatures. Joey and Gina each share 3 music powered abilities: An attack power, a shield, and a pair of rocket boots. Using these abilities consumes energy, which can be regained by taking a moment to tap your fingers to the groovy beat. While recharging Joey and Gina are pretty much helpless, and so BeatBlasters III, becomes as much about managing the timing of recharges as it does the accuracy of your rhythm and the jumping, shooting, and protecting that each level entails. Additionally Joey and Gina each have a completely unique super power and soundtrack, making each character a different auditory and gameplay experience. Master each level to earn star power, which can be used to modify the attacks of both characters, and then take on Insane Mode for the ultimate in rhythm challenge. Expand

    It probably isn’t fair to classify Beat Blasters III as a “music game”, but rather a quality action game that thrives on music. If this sounds like something that you would like to experience, then you owe it to yourself to give it a try.

    BeatBlasters III is short lived, but even in that small amount of time, the action became a bit repetitive. There's not much of a sense of progression other than moving forward through the barely explained story.

    BeatBlasters III encourages excitement and the party vibe with its aesthetic, but its design does nothing but slog around obnoxious escorts and defense missions that instantly overstay their welcome.
