    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.

    Grab your board and boom box because it's time to ride the sound waves in 'AudioSurf' where collect color blocks to score points using your own music!

    With multiple ships to pilot each featuring their own scoring mechanics and the ability to use custom music this game offers a lot of variety to it's basic formula.

    On the downside the custom music often creates a mess of blocks that don't always have the flow of other note highway music games and makes the experience more frantic than fun.

    Pros:

    -Great graphics
    -Songs of your choice, since you use your own audio files
    -Fun, addicting gameplay
    -Instant addiction
    -Not that heavy on your system, mine is almost 7 years old, and still runs this game at 60fps on highest settings
    -You can git gud easily

    Cons:
    -Instant addiction
    -Almost blew up my computer by making the game make a level for a 15 minute song
    -Lot of songs are surprisingly popular on this game, so your score is low on the leaderboards, but you gotta git gud

    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.

    AudioSurf Review


    I really like AudioSurf because it is fun to try and avoid the grays, plus you can add music to listen to while playing it. If you like music games you should get AudioSurf. Though, it does get old pretty quick unless you play all characters at least twice and beat all your songs. Overall, I rate AudioSurf 4 stars.
