It's a good example of bringing other talents to bear on a video game review... this is really two reviews in one. That's like bringing a rocket launcher to a fencing duel. It will be hard for the judges to say no to this.


Note to gamers: when someone shoots you in the face, they aren't "gay." They are "psychopathic."

Man, you make this game sound awesome. I also loved you talking about the specific tracks on a musical level and how well they translate into the game. I might actually have to buy this on your recommendation if it's fairly cheap. *checks Steam*

Holy shit, thanks! I sort of had to attack this game from a different angle and I had no idea how that would work out, so I'm glad to hear you liked it!

I actually have this game on XBLI and once spent an hour or so making a mental draft to when I played it along with Blur's Song 2. Then I dumped it because I didn't think the approuch would work.

You've proved me quite wrong -- great review.


For us. For them. For you.

I played this game for 10 minutes and thought I was going to have a seizure. I've never seen so many flashy lights in my life.

Baha. Doesn't the game have a seizure warning right when you boot it up?

This review probably should come with a "nobody else seems to love this game as much as I do" warning, but like I said, I'm convinced it comes down to careful song selection. Also, if any of you do want to check it out, know that the game accepts Xbox 360 controller input and I strongly recommend playing it that way. Mouse and keyboard is, understandably, not the best way to play a game like this.

Anyway, thanks a lot for the comments.

I played the demo - it was fun. First impressions are, not quite as good as Audiosurf, but more than good enough to make me want to play further and see how the rest of my music library fares in here. The dual-stick action is not as tight as Geometry Wars, but the music does add a really cool and absorbing layer to each stage. Now it's just a case of whether I want to spend £7 on it right at this moment. Because it's Steam, it's blatantly going to go on sale again at some point.

Hilariously, it was just on sale.

Think it did have a seizure warning. Well I doubt I would've had a seizure but the flashing lights was enough to make me instantly uninstall it. It's a shame since it seemed like a decent game.

You just missed a sale where you could get Beat Hazard, Audiosurf (decent), Geometry Wars (good), Bullet Candy (supposedly good), VVVVVV (good, I just reviewed this one last night), and one other indie game for $5.

Man, that's an excellent deal. I've already played Audiosurf, Geometry Wars, and VVVVVV (the latter two not from Steam), and they're all good games and are worth at least $5 individually, let alone together in a pack.
