Know when to collect, and know when to release.Trip out in up to four-player co-op and get lost in the beat with your friends! See if you can survive the onslaught of Beats and further your own BIT.TRIP.

  • Get in the zone with music/rhythm-based gameplay and arcade action
  • Team up with your friends with up to four-player co-op multiplayer

Don't avoid the VOID

The third release (of six) in Gaijin Games' BIT.TRIP series has quite a bit in common with its predecessors. And that is a good thing. Even better, though, is just how much VOID manages to stand apart from its popular older brothers. Rather than striving...

Good. But I stopped my interest in these "hardcore" games after my experiences with BEAT. Not to say that BEAT and the entire Bit Trip series isn't good however.

Wow. I loved BEAT; with CORE, I thought, "Cool, but too similar-ish" plus I didn't like the input style as well. Said to self: "You're done with Bit.Trip." But now: VOID looks sick. In a "I hope I never get well" kind of way. Bring it on.

The ESRB just rated this game "E" meaning a release is coming soon for North America.

well, this is going in my list, since i will be getting all the games of the series

man i thought the first one was hard so i didn't get second because that looked like hell and this looks even worse!



argus said:

The gameplay is pretty different for each one, so I hope people aren't giving up on the series just because they didn't like Beat. Core is my favorite. Anyway, they're a good deal at $6 each, and they don't require you to own every game to enjoy the series.

Bit.Trip Core my favorite this far, Void I dont know if to download it.



drkjmark said:

The worst of the bit trips. Beat was excellent, Core was half decent, but this one just didn't do it for me. The main problem is that the music just didn't have enough sync with the game play. In the other games, especially Beat, you had to play totally in sync with the music. In this game, although the music is nice to listen to, it isn't a critical part of gameplay, and thats really what the first two Bit. Trips had going for them.
