    still a better rymthm game then guitar hero (note I suck at guitar hero)

    the reason I think this game is better then every other rythm game I've played glanced at seen or heard about is two fold.
    one its easy enough that I can say any one can play and still have a good time. and two you can add your own music really fast and really easy. if you dont wana buy more music from your preferd online sorce. just steal it from youtube!

    I liked this game when I first played it. Liked that you could put in your own songs. Decided to revisit it.
    Cant say Im a fan of the changes. Instead of the game loading up I get directed to a web page and requests me to log in.
    Never had a log in and not able to generate one for what ever reason. i get to watch videos of other people playing.
    Dissapointing.

    Do you have music laying around? Don't you wish you could do something more than just listen to them? Get this game plus your music to go along and call it a day. Oh, and probably a decent PC if you want that extra graphical oomph.

    This game is the most colorful game i've ever played and it's really fast pased but if you like music games also than I'd say it's worth the money to buy this game (I did get this game during the winter sale for 2015)


    I'd give this game a rating of 10/10 :D

    I love it. Always come back to it. Feels like guitar hero with a mouse (99.9% of my playtime is Mono Pro or Ninja Mono). Every time I try to play Audiosurf 2 I just end up opening this game after one song. If you are trying to decide between Audiosurf 1&2 I would recommend this one 1000x more.

    I suffer from Depression and Anxiety, so i'm often stressed and can't focus. I'd either go play a fighter and feel super salty, or go draw and not end up with anything. This game is really good with keeping you busy, and it's nice to stay focused on the music. It helps me a lot so I reccomend this a lot to people who have issues focussing but still want to do something.

    Having scored 100% achievements in this game, I feel quite qualified to rate it 8/10 - would reccommend.

    As every game, it has pros and cons, and many users have stated them at great length. You should read other reviews, if you haven't yet.

    However, there are two key points that I haven't seen (so far) in the comments.

    As a downside, this game fails to sync the raceway speed to the audio track. Don't get me wrong, the blocks are perfectly synced to notes or beats. But the speed of your spaceship is constantly shifting up and down, for no reason.

    Therefore, you may compare this game to trying to jump into a train that is constantly and abruptly changing speed. In more upbeat trance songs, you barely notice this. But play a song like Arctic Monkeys - Do I wanna know? and it'll be hell. And not because it's a hard song or anything. It's just impossible to jump in and out of a lane if you don't know how fast you'll be going by the time you get to your color cube.

    Song selection can be quite tricky for this game.

    On the contrary, as an upside, it is remarkable that this game came out of a single person's work. Yes, it was initially developed by one person, although I'm not 100% sure at which point other people jumped in. Even Audiosurf 2 is a game made by few people.

    You might wonder why this matters. Well, it's not often you see nowadays games being developed by one person or super tiny teams. And when you see them, they are crap. However, even though the graphics of this game feel a bit outdated (you may play Audiosurf 2 for that case), you can feel the passion put into the game, since it was not developed by a 25.000 people team with a 25 billion dollar budget. You can see how things were prioritised, and I'm happy to report that gameplay was the priority in this game.

    Original idea, passion put into it, simple GUI, easy to learn, simple controls.

    Therefore: 8/10 - would recommend.

    All I ever play is Nonja Mono on Ironmode and that's all I need. This game is great. Audiosurf 2 may be more polished, but I still find myself playing this one more often.

Completley recommended to buy, and it is more recommended to buy it on sale!
