    Another way to enjoy music. Or another way to enjoy music even more.

    I do listen to music while gaming, but I don't do it all the time. Sometimes it can get distracting and other times I want to enjoy the game story dialogue. So, from time to time, I'm stuck wanting to listen to my music but I also don't want to get distracted by it. Yeah, just my problem. It doesn't happen all the time but this game is a good answer to this particular problem.

    You can use your own music to play this game. That's really a plus. You are not fixed with the songs the game provided.

    The thing about this game is that it makes you enjoy your music even more. For some reasons focusing on the game-play also makes you focus on the song itself. That way you completely get into the song and enjoy it fully. People tend to listen to music while doing something else. Work, Household chores, gaming, exercise etc. When it gets to the point where you focus on the task at hand, the music that is playing in your ears become a mere background. You certainly cannot give your 100% attention to two things at the same time. I really doubt it if you can. The weird thing is this game does exactly that. Or close to it. I enjoy my music even more while playing this game than doing anything else. Maybe it's the rhymes you have to match or the song is the game itself. I'm not entirely sure.

    The game isn't perfect for every genres of song though. I also listen to jazz for example. It doesn't do really well on that.

    There is also Audiosurf 2 available on steam right now, but still in early access. I'm really looking forward to that. But I don't think I will buy that game right now.

    God tier game to be honest.

    Pros:
    + Addicting game.
    + Puzzle is great once you learned it.
    + Good competition on the scoreboards.
    + You can do any challenge you want to.

    Cons:
    - Gets boring if you play the same tracks over and over again.
    - Too short chain timer at casual characters.

    Score: 97/100
