Picking up the beat, theyTechnic Beat allows players to actually create, alter and dance on screen to their own music. The game features tunes from some of Namco's most popular games. In Technic Beat, players listen to music represented in the game by radiating concentric rings of sound. Picking up the beat, they dance into the middle of the rings and try to "catch" the music. If successful, they achieve the power to manipulate the sound rings and create entirely new music. As players progress and gain skill they are rewarded with spectacular visual displays, bonuses, and power ups. Technic Beat features include: Arcade mode ? use the Tension Meter to measure your performance. Push it up and you're on to the next round! Free mode ? choose the songs you want to play. Save and replay your performances, and control the camera and music. Challenge mode ? choose the difficulty level and let the game pick your test! Sudden death ? Can you play all the songs in order without a single mistake? Supports one or two players playing cooperatively or competitively. [Mastiff] Expand

  1. An extraordinary addition to the rhythm game genre. It offers simple, pick-up-and-play mechanics that are easy to get into, and significantly more difficult to put down.
  2. A cheap but solid rhythm title. The rather hectic action isn’t for everyone, and the game will have time with the mainstream audience, but fans of the genre will not be disappointed.
  3. A music game that’s really for puzzle gamers as music fans will have a hard time getting their groove on.
  4. A charming music game that's fun to play, has loads of features and songs, and sells at a budget price.

    Really, it's not a bad game it's just not a particularly great game either.
  6. There are no previews of song titles, so it's hard to keep track of what you've done and what you haven't. [Feb 2005, p.87]
  7. 22
    Veterans of action games will likely despise the game's low difficulty level.
