    Audiosurf is a compulsory title for all music lovers. Dynamic, with immersive gameplay, little complicated game based on our own music library. This is one of the unique music games, which makes a lot of fun and allows you to relax for a while with your favorite songs.

    Kidz Bop Thrift Shop came on the Audiosurf radio and I was forced to listen to it.
    My ears are bleeding now.

    10/10 best pain simulation ever.

    This is a great little game. I got it for only $2.50 when it was on sale, and I don't regret it. Addicting and fun, it is interesting to see what the track is like with different styles of songs. Almost every song is great on it. As for playtime, it depends on how many songs you have. I have over 800, and still haven't tried 100 of them, meaning that I've still got a lot of potential hours to put into it. $9.99 is a bit too much for a little game like this, in my opinion, so I'd reccomend that you get it during a sale, like me.

    Altogether, I give it a 9/10

    Хорошая игра с своеобразным геймплеем, который не оставит вас равнодушными. Вот уже 3-й год играю в неё когда "не во что играть" или перед сном - 5/5

    the music moves forward in glowie. don't have to worry about community because this is singular player game (game has leadboard but who do you find there? only nerds and geeks. unless you play obscure song like balkan grindcore then only you, you nerd geek)

    i say this is very good best game only because i can finally see how my own fart sound in mp3 looks to the eyes

    Really good music visualizer. You can ride any song you have locally.
    There are scoreboards and you can always be up to date if you get dethroned from your highscore.

    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.

    AudioSurf - music rhythm game with racing indie mechanics.
    So hard to describe AudioSurf, because it is a unique blend of genres - the possibility of constructing tracks tied to the music that you choose to play.
    There is a choice of difficulty and game modes.
    The game is not recommended for epileptics - possible attacks.
    In general, the product is interesting and worthy candidate for your game collection.

    AudioSurf - музыкальная ритм игра с гоночной инди механикой.
    Так сложно описывается AudioSurf, потому что это уникальная смесь жанров - возможность построения треков нарпямую завязана на ту музыку, которую вы выбираете для игры.
    Есть возможность выбора сложности и режима игры.
    Игра категорически не рекомендуется для эпилептиков - возможны приступы.
    В целом, продукт интересный и является достойным кандидатом для вашей коллекции игр.

    AudioSurf is one of the best and most interesting concepts I have ever seen. The colorful and technological graphics make you really feel the game and the replayability is potentially infinite, since there will be always a new song. It is perfect both if you want to have a low-skill relaxing match, or you want to test your abilities on the hardest levels. Even though some times the game doesn't catch the "essence" of the song, most of the time it feels like you are actually "surfing" your song.
