Red Bull BC One Review
It's hard to tell if the designers of Red Bull BC were very innovative or rather lazy. You see, what we have here is a connect-the-dots break dancing game. I'm completely serious. Use your stylus to draw a line between the dots on the touch screen and if you can do it before the timer runs out your break dancer on the upper screen will bust his moves. I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt and assume that they were going for innovative and just missed the mark. You can add crazy break dancing moves, vibrant colors and pulsating graphics, and a techno backbeat to it, but in the end all you're doing is drawing a line between dots. Even after playing the game for a while I can't even tell you if the dance animations look cool because I spent all of my time looking at the bottom screen as I connected dots on screen after screen. And connecting dots on screen after screen just isn't that much fun. Connect the dots puzzles are basically a way to help kids learn their numbers, and once they have counting down they usually move on to more challenging puzzles. I can barely remember the last time I did one of those types of puzzles, but I suppose that I wasn't much more than five at the time. It can be hard to give a game that is pretty unique a low rating when you see so many games that are completely derivative and unoriginal. Red Bull BC may be really different, it may be a bit strange, but in the end it just isn't much fun and that's the most important thing in a game.
In The End, This Game Hath Been Rated: 45%. This is really different, this is kind of strange, this isn't all that much fun - no matter how you spruce it up, connect the dots is still connect the dots.
