    Any Wii owner who is even mildly interested would do well to pick Bit.Trip FLUX up.

    Bit.Trip FLUX is perfect.

    It's made for longer sessions of slowly learning patterns and improving, until suddenly you break through a pattern that looked impossible at first, second, and third glances.

    BIT.TRIP FLUX is a great example of how old-school video gaming can be every bit as relevant today as it was 30 years ago and provides the perfect ending to one of the most unique and engaging video game series ever created.

    Bit.Trip Flux is greater than the sum of its parts, though. It might be very similar to Gaijin Games' first title, but it shows growth - both in the character arc of Commander Video and the evolution of the series.

    Excepting the continued unfortunate lack of online support, Bit.Trip Flux is in every way an improvement over the original Bit.Trip Beat. It's a worthy sequel to the title that started it all, and a welcome way to bring this two-year WiiWare journey to a close.

    It looks and sounds good, but it's as shallow and frustrating as a conversation with Louie Spence. [Apr 2011, p.79]

    This game is great. It's not my absolute favorite of the 6 Bit.Trip games, but it is a ton of fun for the price. Basically Flux is Beat with lots of small improvements - the balance of difficult vs easy sections is much better, you can make a lot more mistakes and still keep going, the graphics are better, etc, etc.

    Honestly there's not a whole lot I can say in favor of this game besides saying it is Bit.Trip.Beat 2.0, but that is enough for me. If you only ever buy one Bit.Trip game, get Runner, but if you're like me, and enjoy all 7 games Gaijin has published so far, you'll love this one.

    Graphics: 10/10 (for the Wii, and Gaijin games in general)
    Sound: 10/10 (these games are *all* about the music and FX and this release does not dissapoint)
    Gameplay: 8/10 (a little dissapointed this is a remake more than an original game, but it is still extremely fun!)

    Overall: 9/10. Buy it, you won't regret it.
