Product Description

In this musical action game, the goal is for your squat little character to bounce to the beat and literally catch the music. Rings of sound pulse across the game field, and if players can get inside the rings and keep the beat, they have power over the sound rings to create their own chains of wild new music for bonuses, power-ups and even more explosiove displays of light and sound. Battle a second player of take on the game in Arcade Mode and Free Mode -- even test yourself with the tension-filed Sudden Death mode!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great Price for a Small Gem March 29, 2005
By Z-Fan
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game got panned by most critics as being too weird and offbeat for an american audience.

But if you are someone like me who doesn't mind things being a little weird and "Japanesque" then you shouldn't mind this game either.

You don't really get to make your own songs but you play notes in existing songs and get to modify the way they sound or come out a bit. If done well you can get a really nice sounding song that is very enjoyable.

This game is generally lumped in with "rythem" games but I don't think it quite fits in with this catagory.

Whereas other rythem games have a static marker and various beats coming towards it that must be pressed at a certain time, in Technique Beat you have a character that runs around the screen trying to race from beat to beat. If the character is fast enough they can also move beats around to create new mixes and chains.

The system used is much more intuitive and freeform than most rythem games but the big advantage is that those of us with no rythem whatsoever can really play and enjoy this game because it is based more on visual cues rather than audio ones.

Even though the graphics and presentation won't astound you it deserves to be added to your collection as a little gem that was overlooked and underated.

There's no reason not to with the low price tag on it, too. (I picked it up for $15- can't beat that on a new game)

4.0 out of 5 stars Technic Beat! January 4, 2009
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a great game. It's definitely outside of the limits of a "regular" rhythm game. It's unique-ness makes it very enjoyable, and all of the songs are customizable to an extent in gameplay (you can change the pitch of beats, mix them together, etc.) I enjoy playing it, however, I never find myself playing it for too long all at once.
I definitely recommend this game, but I'm not sure about the $47.99 pricetag. I got my copy for only $15.
