  1. It's original, it's inexpensive and it's fun. Void is a perfect addition to the Bit.Trip series and is, arguably, the best of the batch so far, retaining the addictive charms of the previous two titles while carving out a strong and unique identity of its own.
  2. As a step in the series' continued evolution, Void is both surprising and well done. It doesn't quite top my favorite in the series, Core, which has catchier music that remains a larger part of its design, but it comes close (Void does have music from Nullsleep, a very good chiptunes artist, however).
  3. A simple, entertaining and artistic game. It's visually familiar, but the game is once again different. [Apr 2010]
  4. It controls like a dream, has a catchy soundtrack that is enhanced by the gameplay, and is just flat-out fun to play.
  5. Insanely hard retro magic. [Apr 2010, p.90]
  6. The inability to upload high-scores is a minor disappointment, but otherwise Bit.Trip Void is an unqualified success, and for 600 Points from the Wii Shop it's well worth investigating.
  7. The Bit.Trip-series are about short, simplistic games and Void fits like a glove. You immediately understand the goal of the game and everyone can have a go at it, but the difficulty ramps up fairly quickly. It’s a shame there aren’t many levels and an online leaderboard would have been the perfect addition, but still, this experiment has succeeded.
  8. It may pay homage to the best of 8-bit gameplay but this is cleverly originally and instantly addictive.
  9. A standing ovation goes to Gaijin Games who have the courage and talent to change the basic premise in every Bit Trip title they make, and to do that well. Bit Trip Void is fun, challenging and packed with retro goodies. It's also a bargain.
  10. 80
    Hypnotic gameplay, foot-tapping 8-bit music, and old school Atari visuals make for one classy arcade game. And it's got a nice price at $6.
  11. If you're looking for an exciting, fair, and accessible challenge on the Wii, you should definitely let yourself get sucked into the Bit.Trip Void.
  12. It retains about the series' penchant for easy and accessible gameplay wrapped in a retro package. Its simplicity and lack of additional modes could harm long-term enjoyment, but BIT.TRIP VOID is brimming with creative ingenuity that shouldn't be missed.
  13. 80
    Gaijin continues to do a wonderful job of meshing new gaming ideas and trance music with the look and feel of classic gaming. Void is not the most immersive or innovative title you will ever play, but it goes a long way at standing out in the crowd of me-too shooters and platform wannabes.
  14. Whether or not if you have heard of the BIT.TRIP series, this is a great game that will entrance and entertain Wii owners of all ages.
  15. Fans of arcade games that like the quest for self overcoming will enjoy the experience -- despite the lack of leaderboards. Hours of fun for just 600 Nintendo Points.
  16. Bit.Trip Void is a stylish homage to the graphic and the spirit of the iconic videogames of the 80s. It is also a brilliant puzzle game with an intuitive and addictive mechanic. The only flaws are its shortness and the lack of online leaderboards, but for 600 points it's a good choice.
  17. Very accessible, cheap, and immediately fun; Bit.Trip Void is a fun package for WiiWare to play host to.
  18. The third episode in the series is not bright as the previous releases.
  19. Bit of a one-trick pony, but it's still a neat idea, well executed. [May 2010, p.73]
