Is It Any Good?

BIT.TRIP BEAT HD is a trippy experience that can get intense at times,  in a sensory overload sort of way. Its slick retro-chic presentation, unique and challenging gameplay, and catchy beats make it a must-have for music game fans and people with an appreciation for old-style arcade games. If there's a downside it's that dragging the paddle involves putting your finger over it, which blocks some of the playfield. It's a small inconvenience compared to the fun you (and potentially a friend, too) will have.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
