    FATE looks and sounds great, but it drops a lot of the rhythm-action elements, and loses some specialness along with them. [Issue #51 – March/April 2021, p. 21]

    While stage design feels a bit bland, BIT.TRIP FATE makes up for this with extremely enjoyable and satisfying gameplay.

    BIT.TRIP FATE is a twin-stick rail shooter that is somewhat bullet hell-esque as well.
  4. 55
    Even though the game includes 20 tough-as-nails challenge stages, which all over the same objective of destroying all enemies and not getting hit once, the amount of value for Bit.Trip Fate as a standalone title isn’t high. The gameplay does have a few neat tricks in it and the simple twin-stick controls work well enough, but ultimately Fate fails as a decent shoot-’em-up, and it’s going to be fans of the Bit.Trip aesthetic that will get the most enjoyment out of this one. If you’ve never gone on a Bit.Trip, don’t start with this one. But if you’ve enjoyed some of the other entries in the series, maybe you’ll want to tempt Fate more than I did.

    For fans of the series, BIT.TRIP FATE delivers the same awesome music and visuals with the most interesting theming whilst having just okay shooting gameplay. It’s still good in some regards, but if there’s one to miss it’s this one.

    Man. Have I still remember the BIT.TRIP series. It holds up very well and to this day. Still one of my best game series.
