Excerpt: The short description of Bit.Trip Core is that it is retro 8-bit shooter meets techno rhythm game. It's one of those games with the kind of basic and simple gameplay that takes a lot longer to describe than it does to simply sit down and start playing. You control a little plus sign placed in the middle of the screen that can project a beam in one of the four basic directions.
Conclusion: BIT.TRIP CORE was the 100th WiiWare title released and clocks in at 600 Wii Points as of this writing. The gameplay style is simple and so are the graphics, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t fun. Having to start over if you mess up after playing for ten minutes or more got annoying, but besides that BIT.TRIP CORE is a solid game.
Summary: Bit.Trip Core is the kind of game that you get if you would imagine what would happen if someone heavily into the trance scene were to have made a rhythm game for the Atari era. Simplistic in both its presentation as well as its controls, the games relatively short amount of content is packed with gameplay that you can’t help but begin to bob along to the beat with.
