  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. With a huge songbank in the game and a setup that is more conducive towards building strong routines when in multiplayer instead of straight competition, hooked gamers will have an easy time spending countless hours with this game over the next few months.
  3. It’s a unique game with a charmingly warped take on the rhythm genre and it’s one of those crossover games that the normally videogame aversive spouse or girlfriend might enjoy, which is always a plus.
  4. 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.
  5. PSM Magazine
    Its tripped-out characters, seizure-inducing arenas, and innovative gameplay are worth checking out for beat junkies or those who want a new sensation. [Dec 2004, p.92]
  6. Technic Beat also provides some of the best two-player action around.
  7. A music game that’s really for puzzle gamers as music fans will have a hard time getting their groove on.
  8. Anyone who likes music games can get into the gameplay, but the music itself is not easy to absorb. As a player I want to get into the game. I want my friends to walk by and laugh when they see me bopping to the game's killer sounds. Technic Beat's eccentric soundtrack prevents that from happening.
  9. The sounds effects are great, and the bass comes out strong. But, like I said, the amount of input you have via these effects should have been emphasized more in the game.
  10. Game Informer
    Wildly amusing and quirky to the extreme, Technic Beat is a flawed but enormously fun music game that should readily appeal to those fond of cult favorites like "Amplitude" or "Rez." [Nov 2004, p.158]
