Bit.Trip Saga is a compilation featuring six amazing indie games from developer Gaijin. All of them were originally released on the WiiWare service, and all of them contain some of the finest gaming experiences I've had this generation, (stylized) retro graphics be damned. If you like addictive, arcade like gaming with beautiful visuals and moving chiptune soundtracks, you'll LOVE this.

Having them on the go is really quite nice, and playing them in 2D is a pretty wonderful experience with headphones. But when one entertains the idea of moving the 3D slider up, well...

For some reason, the 3D effect in this game drops the framerate down QUITE a bit for most of the games. It technically works -- there is obvious spatial difference between objects, and simply glancing at it is quite entertaining. But these are games that require utmost precision on part of the player, especially Runner, which gets hit the absolute hardest from level one. It's really unfortunate, because 3D is one of the main reasons most people would buy this in the first place.

Also, the slide pad control on Beat and Flux is awful. What should be a more traditional Pong like experience is marred by hilariously over-sensitive controls. Stick to the touch screen (which works QUITE well, I might add).

Furthermore, Saga is just lacking in content when one compares it to the Wii compilation Complete. For the same price on the Wii, you get online leaderboards, a soundtrack, different difficulty selections (a must for the causal players -- these games can get HARD), NEW challenges/levels, letters from the creators, and local multiplayer. The multiplayer especially hurts, because it was always available even in the original WiiWare releases.

The Bit.Trip series is varying degrees of fantastic. They twist relatively simple game concepts around a choreographed, rhythmic center in an experience one might describe as "Retro meets Rez", then wrap it in a layer of classic, old-school difficulty. Each individual game is short, but will try your patience and skills like few modern games do. The victories are enormously gratifying, and you can spend hours trying to best your high scores and seek perfection. Some of the games in the package are better than others, (Runner, in particular, stands out) but they are all consistently good--there's not a dud to be had here.

Glowing praise, right? It's a real shame that six amazing games have been ported so terribly to the 3DS.

First off, the package is the very definition of bare-bones. You have a main menu that lets you select from one of the six games, and can exit back to this menu from within any of the games. Each game is played on the top screen, and controls well enough. (Beat and Flux can be controlled via the touch screen, Runner, Core, and Void via the buttons, and Fate with a combination of both.) This wouldn't be as much of an issue, if there weren't more complete packages of the game to be found elsewhere. (The concurrently released Bit.Trip Complete comes to mind.) Basically, there are better ways to play these games if you look to other platforms.

But that alone is not enough to warrant the low score. No, this game is technically flawed. The framerates are unplayably jittery in 3D mode, and dip frequently on the more "intense" games in 2D.

This is just the video game for 8-bit guys.
Perhaps it is not the most awesome graphics you'll see, or the most extreme play experience you'll have.

This is a set of simple games. All based on simple principles. Pressing buttons, and/or moving around.
Most people fall inmediatly in love with "Runner", thats why my review will center on it.

A really simple game, with an 8-bit guy running, and you just have to jump (to avoid holes), slide (to avoid getting hit in the head), kick (to break some obstacle), etc. That's it. Oh, and also, you will have a really nice 8-bit music in the background, which, when you get some powerups, starts converting to a new kind of music.
Backgrounds are 3d, and really nice. You wont notice them, until you become good at the game, because if you look too much, you'll get hit and have to start all over again.

The other games are just as simple. Some look like Pong (evolved). Music is always simple at the beginning, and becomes something else as you get powerups. Backgrounds are always really distracting with 3d motion. (and 3d effects on the 3ds display).

Like 3 weeks ago i got like 5 games for the 3ds... Im still playing Bit Trip Saga : Runner :)

There is no question that it is honestly very hard to make a game that delivered very well for downloads, and see it transform to a whole new level. That has been very hard for games for the Nintendo Wii's downloads, Wiiware. They have had some great titles, and some of them just haven't felt like they were even close to thriving. But, with so much anticipation for the upcoming Nintendo's Wii U, and with the lack of strong games for Sony's PS3 Move and Microsoft's Xbox Kinnect, many have considered taking gaming as a backseat. But with the Nintendo 3DS, there hasn't been as much hoopla as many gamers had hoped for. Still, there have been some really surprising titles, and this one came from the Wii.

Bit.Trip.Saga for the Nintendo 3DS takes on all 6 of the Bit.Trip titles that were available for the Nintendo Wii through the Wiiware downloads, are now available in one convient game, and it really is surprisingly addictive. The graphics for all the games might be a throwback to the 80's, but the gameplay is actually surprisingly addictive. You have all 6 of the Bit.Trip games here, Bit.Trip.Beat, Bit.Trip.Flux, Bit.Trip.Void, Bit.Trip.Runner, Bit.Trip.Core, and Bit.Trip.Fate. The gameplay is surprisingly addictive, and focuses mainly on strong concentration and accuracy at times, especially on Bit.Trip.Runner, where you have percisely time your jumps and moves properly, otherwise you would have to go completely back to the start, and Bit.Trip.Flux which takes on a pong-like throwback to bouncing the balls which are hurdling toward your paddle.

The sound handles well with futuristic music and nice throwback hinted in, while the control has been improved and takes the step in the right direction where the Wiiware version failed to work. For example, in Bit.
