DualShockers Review: Beaterator

DualShockers writes:

"How do you do a game review when what you're reviewing is not a game to begin with? This was the challenge I was faced with when taking on the Rockstar Leeds developed and Rockstar Games published, Beaterator. At its core the game err application is basically a full fledged (portable) music production studio. What started out as a flash application on Rockstar's website would eventually evolve into the monstrous music creation tool it is today (after a collaboration with the right person of course). To make things interesting Rockstar Leeds teamed up with hit-making powerhouse music producer Timbaland. With his long music making resume and Rockstar's video game know how, it was sure to be a match made in music game heaven. One thing about Rockstar and their games is that they always include a soundtrack that helps immerse the player into the world they have created. The Grand Theft Auto series has been a perfect example of that. To this day, when I hear Kanye West's "Flashing Lights" I picture myself cruising around Liberty City looking for trouble. Music always has that ability to make you remember and with Beaterator, Rockstar has provided the tools to truly create your own distinctive soundtrack."

Rockstar Games: Greatest Portable Hits (Modojo)

Chris Buffa (Modojo): According to multiple sources, some highly anticipated Rockstar game comes out tomorrow. L.A. something or other, with lots of guns, dead bodies and dames (ask grandpa what those are).

No surprise that it's on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Rockstar usually needs powerful tech to achieve its massive goals, but the publisher also has a rich portable history across a variety of platforms. In fact, some of the company's biggest franchises have appeared on Game Boy Advance and the iPhone.
