    I'll have to ding it a point due to the control issues, but the game itself is near perfect. [Issue #51 – March/April 2021, p. 21]

    While it can be frustrating at times, BIT.TRIP BEAT remains an enjoyable experience at a great price.

    It is the simplicity of BIT.TRIP BEAT that really stuck with me and made me enjoy it so much. As you’ll find out later, not all of the ideas work as well as the simple ones do, and this is one that certainly works well enough to introduce a whole saga.

    BIT.TRIP BEAT is an excellent game that still holds up a decade later. I highly recommend this game to anyone interested in the legacy of Commander Video, searching for a bite-sized experience, or those who seek a rhythm-based challenge. Though you should keep in mind that this release is marred by a pretty significant bug.
