B-Boy review

  • Super slick transitions
  • Getting in the zone
  • 40 licensed tracks
  • Watching beats, not the action
  • The lack of atmosphere
  • Waiting for the countdown

As you practice new moves and variations (windmills come in Coffin, Nutcracker and No-Hands flavours), you'll also get the skills to transition between them more fluidly, widening your options and allowing more elaborate combos. It takes a bit of getting used to, but nailing a perfect throwdown's a genuine thrill.

In fact, the only thing that lets B-Boy down is that it feels a little bit... sloppy. From basic game design (the beats are orange and so are half the surfaces you dance on) to silly oversights (you can 'diss' when you're on the sidelines, but you don't get bonus points for doing it when your opponent crashes, which seems like a shame), B-Boy's full of little missed opportunities.

Above: Holding freezes earns you big points, even though it's frowned on in reality
