  1. You have to give B-Boy credit for taking a novel approach to a relatively untapped subject. But then you have to take all that credit away for the fact that it has no story, a Byzantine move system, and repetitive gameplay. In the end, B-Boy is difficult to pick up, easy to master, and impossible to recommend.

    Remarkably shallow and underwhelming.
  3. Where B-Boy crucially disappoints is in the execution of its gameplay. The turn-based nature of its stages is interminably frustrating. [Oct 2006, p.94]
  4. The main aim of the game is to create smooth combinations and do it with enough rhythm to win more medals" than your opponent - but that isn’t particularly difficult, even later on in the game.
  5. 40
    The clunky controls, which are way too complicated and annoying to use, as well as battle elements that either don't work particularly well or sabotage each competition, hinder the overall gameplay.
  6. 30
    Other than the music there is little good to be said about this game. It offers nothing in the way of fun, in fact it's boring and a tad irritating. The camera is surprisingly awkward for such basic gameplay and this is symbolic of the rest of the title.
  7. A shallow, repetitive rhythm game. [Oct 2008, p.86]
