I just wanted to make a thread here and see if I can interest anyone that was instantly turned off by the Nintendo Life review. It's just a personal peeve of mine when I see people turned off completely from a good game just because of one review (no offense Nintendo Life and staff or offense to people that do that). It's just that me and several other people heavily disagree with the review, and personally I know the developers put a lot of work, and love into the game, as you can tell when you play it. So it hurts a bit to see someone's hard work get written off easy. I have a collection of various reviews here for you to look at. Even if you aren't interested in the game (and I can't guarantee everyone will) I suggest you at least watch the video review that DEIVION212 made (if you remember him from the golden days of the Wiiware service). He has two versions of thereview up, a short one and one that spans up to 30min. It's really in-depth and shows you pretty much what the game has to offer.

Anyhow on to the game discussion, has anyone here own it? I'm still on the Pixel World... I just need to get more play coins... I've been dying WAY too frequently and I just spent a lot of my coins for Sonic Generations lol. Sorry I don't know how to embedded the videos, if anyone wants to help me do that. I was never good at the shortcuts for the forum... effects or tricks.

So... I basically already have a wall of text here... Anyone miss me? Where ya at Waveboy, Vicky and Otaku to name a few?

No offense taken at all! I'm glad people are enjoying the game. :)

Most of it is my fault though, I keep trying to rush to get all the PixelFlies and don't bother to see where the enemies are going to move to... also I have the camera zoomed in the the closest level... so that's not really helping me. I used easy mode a couple of times... but I'll go back and get the medals later. My first priority is too get all the PixelFlies.

Yo Phil, you should put this in the review. Don't let people click on the Bplus logo in the main menu... you can't skip it lol. So you're forced to re-watch it once you do and you can't exit because of the feature the game has that drops you where you left off when you close the game. I had to watch the cut-scene twice... Once because I wanted to do what the logo did, and second because I thought I could skip it by holding L and R like you could on the main game. Didn't work. :/

Kachou on!

Btw wanted to ask anyone who's gotten all the PixelFlies. If you have them all while you beat the game, can you see both endings or just the true ending?

I'm going to have a review of Bit Boy!! Arcade published soon. My score will be in line with the majority. The game is absolutely amazing!

Every time I thought I found a cause for legit complaint, it was either due to my lack of understanding, or lack of skill. Seriously, there are so many options to tweak the experience, I think most everyone will be thrilled. Definitely purchase this game - easily one of the best eShop titles I've played to date! :)

Cool! Glad you enjoyed it! Nintendo World Report originally gave the game a 7.5 but then later I guess he noticed some problems he had with the game weren't really problems or found out how what he needed to know and he updated the score to an 8.0 lol. I guess though it's because the game doesn't come with a manual... Though the game tells you all this stuff if you're paying attention. Though sometimes you can't heart it well... need to play the game with headphones.

Kachou on!

That was an issue for me also , the lack of a manual. It's easy to overlook points, even though they are explained in detail within the game. Most of my criticisms initially stemmed from such things. But I can't really fault the game as a result of my own rushing or not paying close enough attention.

That is very cool of NWR to acknowledge things they missed and do an update! I'd love to see Nintendolife do similar.

Happy Gaming! (^_^)

It's fun and simple. Perfect for a quick play.

Just a bit over the top in some choices.

Just out of curiosity, has there been any other below average reviews for this game other than the NL one? I mean below average in score of course, not writing quality. Every other review I've seen so far has run good to outstanding.

A five second Google search brought up some:

2 out of 5: http://www.thumbsticks.com/2014/05/01/bit-boy-arcade-review/

6 out of 10: http://www.nintendofeed.com/2014/04/review-bit-boy-arcade-3ds...

Anyone who judges a game purchase based on the opinion of one person (ie. one review) gets what's coming to them (The same goes for looking at the score and not reading the review). It is unfortunate that good/decent games can be forgotten and ignored by such actions, but such is life. Just hope that these people come to their senses and realise how silly they're being. :3

Disclaimer: I'm not saying that this game is good; I haven't looked into it, I'm just agreeing with OP's statement.
If I did though, would you hold my opinion to the same regard as the Nintendolife review?

6/10 ain't bad... (especially if you read the review, the only problems he has with the game was having to play all 10 phases to beat a stage, using play coins if you fail, and the way you run in the game) the other one though lol.

Six out of ten isn't even below average. The sad thing is, his main criticism is incorrect. Simply hitting the home button to quit bypasses the entire play coin setup. To say the game "forces" it is simply not true.

I wasn't saying 6 was bad. You keep harping on the scores (which is the wrong way to judge reviews), and you said you couldn't find below a 7.5 because you seem to be on some mission to make Phil's review look like an outlier. So, after a grand total of 10 seconds of research I found two that were below the lowest you had seen.

Well, technically, neither of those is lower than the lowest he has seen, since the lowest he has seen has been Phil's' which was a 4/10.

And that was today's waste of logic.
