Discover your fate
For any fan of hardcore shooters like Raiden, the Bit.Trip series is a must play and this sixth entry retains all its predecessors' entertainment and high production values, making it another worthy addition to your collection. If you're not familiar with the games, they mix shooting with rhythm-based elements to create an unusual but highly addictive experience that should satisfy genre fans and those who like unusual games. The game thrusts you into the role of Commander Video as he makes his way through a series of 2D, on-rails levels. You're required to move left and right along the predetermined paths while dodging enemy bullets as they seek to destroy you. Vertical movement is controlled by the shape of the oncoming path but you also have control over where your own fire goes with the aid of a crosshair. The rhythm elements are not so prevalent as is previous offerings, which might disappoint some, but there's still heaps of powerups and weapons to keep the adrenaline flowing. Bit.Trip Fate is another fine entry in the long-running series and although the lack of rhythm elements might prove disappointing to some, it's not that big a deal as the core gameplay remains a huge amount of fun. There's the right amount of variety, challenge and thrills on offer here and there's a genuine sense of achievement as you progress and rack up high scores. The visuals are lovely, with some crazy environments, interesting enemy designs and slick level work, so really, for any shooter fan, this is a solid choice.
