I loved the entire Bit Trip series, that's why I will love this game. For those of you who don't know what Bit Trip is, watch the video. But remember each game is a totally different unique experience.
Nintendega's Review for Bit.Trip Saga
SHORT REVIEW AT THE BOTTOM. I honestly don't understand why there is any hate at all on this game. I mean sure this version doesn't have all of the bonus content that Bit.Trip Complete has for the Wii. But if your looking for bonus content go for that version I bought this verison for the portablity. The 3D effects in the game are really wonderful as well. For those of you who are light of knowledge on the series the series has 6 games in all, originally released on WiiWare, these titles are like a tribute to the old Atari/NES days of gaming. All of the game have a sort of style of rythym in it, for example, in the fourth game, Runner, you jump, kick, spring, slide, and block to the beat of the song. One pro to buying this version, the series on WiiWare costs $40 in all so there is a major price difference. The first game in the series is Beat. This game has the style of "Pong". As the song plays squares come out and you hit them back to the rythym of the song with the Pong style paddle. The second game in the series is Core. In the middle of the screen there is a cross like such, +. Squares come out from all directions and you hit the corresponding direction on the d-pad and press the A button when it gets to the line. Its kind of like Dance Dance Revolution only using the D-Pad and it's also kind of like Guitar Hero with the style of matching the beat with the line. As you can tell it's a lot simpler than it is to explain. The third game in the series is Void and it's a lot easier to explain. You start out as a black, sort of blob, one can call it an 8bit circle. As a song progresses black and white squares or "beats" come out and you must collect the black beats and a"void" the white ones. When you get too big you can pop the circle and grow again. The fourth game in the series, and my personal favorite, is Runner. It's an ode to classic platforming in the 80's and early 90's. Commander Video runs along to a song, you cannot controll if he stops or goes faster, he'll only stop if you run into an obsticle without sliding under it, kicking it, jumping over it, blocking it, or springing over it. All of this you do to the rythym of the 8bit chiptune song playing. The fifth game in the series is Fate. Once again Commander Video himself saves the day by moving along a line called the "Vibe" as enemies jump on to the screen you shoot them before they shoot you. This game is a lot like some of the early arcade shooters. The sixth and final game in series Flux returns to the roots of the Bit.Trip series. Again with the Pong inspired gameplay as beats appear you block them back with the paddle to the rythem of the song. SHORT REVIEW: The series in entirety has amazing visuals, great chiptune/8bit inspired music, great gameplay and really good nostalgic styles to the games. I personally love the series and I can't wait for Runner 2 and I hope it comes out for the Wii U. If you love the glory days of gaming you will love this modern take on the 8bit days. Pick it up.
Nintendega's Preview Buzz for Bit.Trip Saga 3DS
I only got the chance to play Runner, Core and Flux and all of those are amazing. Its a good thing I found this page because I was about to go and buy a couple wii points cards so I can buy the other 3 that I haven't played on WiiWare but I'm just going to wait and get this when it comes out. If you don't have any of the games on WiiWare and you are thinking about buying them all seperatly, don't. Wait until this comes out. There is no price difference between buying the 3DS version and buying them on WiiWare (all 6 are 6 dollars a piece exept for Fate and Runner which are 8 dollars a piece, which adds up to 40 dollars) but if you buy them on WiiWare then they stay on whatever Wii you downloaded them to. You can not bring them to another Wii what-so-ever. With this you can take them any where you go. So any way I can't wait for this to come out and I will be buying it on the day it comes out. Can't Wait.
I own bit trip beat, and it's a blast. The gameplay is precise, and the graphics are fantastic. Yet the sound is my favorite part because I love music. Anyways, judging by bit trip beat, I am confident that the other games in the series are excellent too, so I would love to see them in 3D. I recommend this game to your average gamer. :D
Why Is There So Much Hate? It's Awesome!
I don't understand why so many people are hating this version of the game. You bought it on a handheld, so you could play it on the go. It doesn't have to have HD graphics, and have the best speakers to play the music through. It just has to have it's standard gameplay. And the sound, as long as it's not downgraded, is fine. If you want the ultimate visual/audio experience, go buy Bit.Trip Complete, for the Wii, so you can play it on your HD Widescreen TV, with it's 7.1 Audio Channel. But, back to my point, the game is fine for a handheld. There is nothing wrong with it, graphically, or audibly. (Unless, you count the slight lag there is when you turn the 3D on.)
When it comes to the game itself, I like the old graphic style. It reminds me of the Atari days. And it let's new gamers know what the Atari graphics were like, without it completely being downgrading and making everything boring. Plus, the music to this game is awesome. If you happen to have pre-ordered it, like I did, then you got the Soundtrack Sampler, which let's you experience the music by itself.
The only minor complaint I have of this game, is the fact that in "Bit.Trip Fate," the controls have been made only for right-handed people. (You use your LEFT thumb to move the analog stick, and your RIGHT hand to aim, and shoot.) I, unfortunately, am not right handed. But, I'm glad I'm not. I liked having that extra challenge. I still managed to beat it using my right hand to shoot, even though I'm a lefty.
In conclusion, if you want the better audio/visual experience, go buy Bit.Trip Complete on Wii. But, if you want it, just so you can play it on the go, then this is definitely worth $40/$20.
looks like a fun game
I haven't tried the Series yet, but this does look like a fun game. I will try this
Simple, challenging, addicting
This game is simple, yet addicting. The graphics are cool and old-school, but the 3D gives it an interesting punch, so to speak. People keep complaining about the sound quality, and I really don't know what they're talking about, as I'm enjoying it just fine. This game is a welcoming break from most of today's selection. No heavy story line to bog you down, no complex controls. And yet, despite it's lack of complexity, it's still fun. This game is perfect for someone who still loves to play the classic 8-bit games.
if people dont understand about the bits and all that, i think the 3d will only be used to make the bit person in the front and the objects/stage/enemy or somewhat will be just 3d, i guess.. cant wait for this game to come out
From someone who has played these games before hand on my Wii I am pleasantly surprised just how well this compilation is put together. The music and gameplay remain intact with some new control options (thank you stylus controls for beat and flux). If you are interested in truly fun and challenging games give this a try (or bit trip complete if you prefer).
Thinking about pre-ordering this
I am thinking about pre-ordering this but would really like to see what others have to say about it before I do. I never played any of the wii ware games but see where they reviewed well......
