Along with the rest of the BIT.TRIP Saga, this game is definitely unique. Only more so. But if you like simple, yet unforgiving music oriented games (I know you do), then do yourself a favor and check this one out. Commander Video FTW!

I absolutly love the Bit. Trip Series. CORE is a little more toned down than its brother BEAT, but it is still is one of the best rythem games out there. It has unimaginably good music (as we have come to know and love from these games) that just make you want to play and play more. The only thing i wish they added to this game was support for user created bit maps and impemented the bomb feature better. It kind of feels like they threw it in last minute because they needed something for the top right corner. Its just to hard to use effectively, maybe a sound que to tell when it is ready?. My rating overall woud be an 7.5/10

This game just isn't right. The main issue I have is that there is a huge delay between pressing fire, and actually shooting your beam. It really ruins the experience. The Wii version, where this is ported from, has no delay at all. Now, you're not getting the game for $1 on the Wii version like you are for the winter sale, but it is SO much better than this game. If anything, I recommend picking up a copy of Bit.Trip Complete on the Wii for about $20. It includes all 6 games in the main series, fun extras, and it includes the true story of the Bit.Trip games. It's a great buy.

SO, final results:

Wii Version- Very fun and challenging for all the right reasons! Recommended, 8/10!
PC Version- Kind of fun, and challenging for all the wrong reasons. Not recommended, 4/10
Bit.Trip Complete- ABSOLUTELY worth your money, 9/10
