Bit.Trip Rerunner not only gives the original a major makeover, but turns it into a big party. It celebrates the history of the series with a lot of fun extras, 150 different levels with music from previous games and a very extensive level editor. This is not a simple remake, this is a game that the makers have put a lot of effort and love into. This makes it interesting for both fans of the original and new players who have never touched the series before. It even gives more insight into how the game was made. This is how a remake should be made!

BIT.TRIP RERUNNER is a very straightforward remake, but one that does exactly what it needed to do. It didn’t change a thing in its gameplay, for there was no need to fix what wasn’t broken. It offers vastly superior visuals, with a brand new “retro meets modern” coat of paint, and an excellent level creator to exponentially increase its lasting appeal and overall value.

Playing BIT.TRIP RERUNNER has made it clear to me just how much my gaming tastes have changed in the past decade. But that’s very much a case of “It’s not you, it’s me.” RERUNNER shows the series has got as much life in it as it ever did, and if you’re in the mood to be challenged, it’s worth your time and money.
