Bit.Trip – Review Round-Up
Gamer Limit – 100
The Bit.Trip games are near flawless and there isn’t a whole lot more you could want from Bit.Trip COMPLETE as a package. It offers some of the best games of the generation, an incredible amount of added content at a value price. And what with the complete drought of quality software, Wii owners looking for a good game really have no excuse. Buy this immediately.
Destructoid – 100
Given that all of the Bit.Trip games are almost perfect as-is, and that this collection has so much new content — all of it top-notch — and that this is a $40 budget release at retail… well, I think I have to go whole hog on this one. It feels weird to finally go ahead and commit to this sacred, borderline magical number, but it’s the truest form of expression I have at my disposal to show you just how much enjoyment I’ve gotten from this compilation.
NintendoWorldReport – 90
If you’re completely new to the series, get it. If you already own one or more of the titles, or the style of play isn’t really your cup of tea, this set might have trouble winning you over.
Nintendo Life – 90
It would have been amazing enough just to be able to own all six BIT.TRIP titles on one Wii disc, but getting 20 new challenges per game, not to mention a wealth of bonus content, makes this the definitive collection of BIT.TRIP goodness.
Nintendo Power – 90
This collection adds some challenge stages and, for those not born with a controller in their hands, a more merciful difficulty setting so that everyone can enjoy the fantastic sights and sounds, and the “just one more go” fun they have to offer. [Sept 2011, p.82]
GameTrailers – 85
The very embodiment of addicting.
GamerNode – 80
Bit.Trip Complete gives both casual and hardcore fans enough content to satisfy their needs.
IGN – 80
Online leaderboards and an included soundtrack only further round out this great package. If you haven’t played these games yet, wait no longer.
GameSpot – 80
Bit.Trip Complete expertly presents the Bit.Trip games with a complement of changes that make it easier than ever to enjoy this remarkable series.
Game Informer – 80
A few new difficulties and 120 new achievement-like challenges even make this a tempting collection for those who already downloaded the games individually.
NGamer UK – 79
A stern memory and reflex test. [Nov 2011, p.69]
Gaming Age – 75
Bit.Trip Complete feels pretty much spot on to the WiiWare releases, but with bonus content to give previous players some incentive to buy it. Is it enough of an incentive to re-buy if you already own all six games? I don’t think so. But it’s certainly the best option out there for people that are new to the series.
