What the developers have to say:

“Customizable mods are a big part of Audiosurf 2. I've finished a few already, but now I want to open it up to the community. There are lots of ways to play with Audiosurf's visual anticipation technology and I'm excited to see what the community comes up with. But more than that, I need you to tell me what to focus on next! Like the first Audiosurf, community feedback will shape it into the best game it can be. If you're interested in creating and sharing mods (scripting required) or skins (can be done with image, sound, and 3d model changes - and optionally with scripting), even better!

Wakeboard mode is my favorite way to ride (so far) because it uses the song's overall shape as a central part of the gameplay. You anticipate upcoming changes in the music visually and try to build up a big trick multiplier (full puzzle grid) just before jumping from a wavetop. The classic modes are still great and will evolve and twist in different directions. Audiosprint, the local-multiplayer party mode is simple (2 buttons) and a blast with friends.

Warning - there will be bugs! Please use the forum to report problems, request additions, or just discuss what's working well and what isn't. See you there.

Major Features not yet finished:
-- Scoreboard for every song, for every mod (scoreboards are currently sparse and unreliable)
-- Graphical music collection browser
-- Gamepad support in menus
-- Mac, Linux, SteamOS support
-- Translations from English
-- VR (Oculus Rift)
-- Even more official modes
-- Even more official skins
-- Important things I didn't think of yet!”

About This Game

Audiosurf 2 is not yet finished, but if you get it during Early Access you can play right away, you’ll get every update, and you’ll get the finished game. Watch here to see what’s new with each update, and watch Steam Workshop to see what new gameplay (mods) and graphic styles (skins) others in the community are inventing.

You’ll also get to help shape the future of Audiosurf, and you’ll get to try out all the experimental new modes before anybody else does. Which ones are too wacky to go into the final product? Which are jaw-droppingly amazing? Which have potential but need more work before they’re released? You get to help decide.

By blending gameplay with music visualization, Audiosurf puts you inside your music in a way nothing else can.

Audiosurf 2’s music analysis engine knows when the best moments of a song are coming, and it allows you to experience these moments on a roller-coaster-like track as beat-matched blocks, corkscrews, loops, deafening applause, shimmering colors, and accelerating drops. Head out to Workshop to see the latest experimental modes and things get wild--the track can become water where a wakeboarder catches huge air at a song’s biggest moments; a dirt track where runners jump over musically-timed hurdles; or anything else anybody who wants to use the game’s built-in modding tools can dream up. The possibilities for experiencing your music in Audiosurf 2 are endless.

Audiosurf has been called a near-religious music experience and it's like nothing else in the world of music games. Ride your music.

If you liked Audiosurf 1, then Audiosurf 2 is the right thing for!
First things first, Audiosurf 1 was great - let us who have tried the original game, admit this.
Audiosurf 1 had it all,
- A raceing ship.
- Greys to avoid.
- Colored blocks to catch.
- Music - from you own libary!
- And other gamemodes!!!!!

And then theres Audiosurf 2... I'm an advanced mono/turbo player, and by the time I have wrote this review, I've been playing this game for around 350.8 hours.

So what does Audiosurf 2 have, that the original didn't have? Let me tell you:

- Audiosurf 2 has all as the original game.
- Audiosurf 2 has MOD SUPPORT! (In a better way than the original.)
- Also the sequel has skin support... Yes you can create your own skins and appereance for this game...
- You can also connect to soundcloud ingame and stream music through that.
- But the most important thing, is that the Audiosurf 2 community is ever expanding and is much more alive than the original game.

I've actually met new people and "friends" in this game!

So if you want a game with a great community, with an ever expanding playground for modders and skinners and a new feel for riding your music, then this game is for you guys!
I give this game 9/10.

PS: There is alot that I have choosen to leave out of this review, because else there would be no fun for you guys to explore... (^-^)

I'll be short.

I'm writing this review only because I thought about it, and I've been an ♥♥♥ with Dylan, on the forums. I've been truly, excessively negative about this game just because he didn't add a proper last.fm support for months (still kinda crippled as last.fm integration but what the heck! At least it's there).

As early access game, I believe it's worth your money. It's AS1 but with better graphics, mechanics and workshop.

Sure there are still things to fix (you can't change settings during a song, there's no way to change colours except downloading a different skin), but overall none could say this game isn't worth your 10 bucks.

As Audiosurf 1 was the game that made me use steam almost daily, so is Audiosurf 2. I bloody love this game.

Definitely recommended.

I might write another review as it gets out of Early Access.

Better than the first. The graphical change takes some getting used to, but you can change the skins.
The general allignment/ track creating is a bit better. See you guys on the leaderboards

Better tracking
In game "live" highscores
Soundcloud (your music + who you follow)
Different highscore boards
Shuffle every audio file you have into a playlist
I can tell people to check out my mixtape in the comments

Game lags with steam notifications
Tracking isn't always 100% the same as the last time you played it

Ability to "bookmark" certain file locations for ease of selecting music
Be able to set parameters for shuffle playlist

-Graphics have improved
-Feels a little more intense
-New modes make playing a little more fun
-Workshop mods have a variety of new skins and modes to choose from (though some of them are horrible and need to be fixed)

-Horrendous menu design
-Slow loading times
-Extremely lacking in setting options (NO SONG VOLUME CONTROL??)
-Also unable to go back to your game when in settings menu and have to start song over again from the songs menu.. (lame..)

Since this is early access, I'll give it the benefit of the doubt and hope the game improves when it's fully released. But to be honest, you're better off with Audiosurf 1 for now until they have new updates.

Alright, I'm going to make this brief - here is what you need to know.

-awful menu system - very difficult to navigate
-impossible to change the most basic of settings during a game
-everything apart from the actual gameplay is incredibly visually unappealing
-long loading times - even for basic menus
-beginning of games are confusing are visually unappealing until the camera is focused on the player

-The process of adapting music into a track is far better
-the graphics have taken on a more 3D style
-visual effects are just as exciting as previous game - can be changed with new skins
-can be great fun - the actual gameplay has significantly improved, especially for fast paced songs

Don't get me wrong here - I had great fun actually playing this game but the menus and other things in between really hinder having a fun experience. But if you manage to put on a great song, the gameplay (especially when you go through corkscrews) is hugely fun..
It should be kept in mind that this is an early access game, so I assume various faults, specifically the menus which I found took a lot of the pleasure away from this game, will be fixed in the future. If you're a fan of the first game, this will most likely appeal to you. If you haven't played the first and don't know what to expect, I think it is best to leave this game until it is out of early access.

If you've played Audiosurf, then you'll love this game.

This game is faster, more intense, than the first game but also more competitive in a way...

there's quite a bit more modes to play with, for example, there's wakeboard, one of the new modes that you can play as.
basically, you're a person on a board, being pulled by two boats, and doing flips in the air. eh, that's the best way I could describe it....

And if you're bored with the modes, try somethings off the workshop there's a lot to choose from. Like new modes to play with, to new skins for the ship and backround.... It's up to you, just don't over flow the game with mods though...

I Recommend this game if you like music, and playing games!

Haven't played it a ton yet, loved the original can allready tell this one is going to be better!

-Workshop integration.
-Soundcloud Integration.

Some menu features are still a little buggy (not ever been a big deal).

Suggestions (I feel like that's sort of what early acess is for):

-Would Love to see spotify intigration, not sure if this is possible.
-In the absense of that I would suggest maybe grooveshark.

)Will update review as game progress, I have more feels, ect...(

I've taken a short break from this amazing game to say this:

As someone who's put 40+ hours into the original Audiosurf, I can tell you that if you're wondering if the sequel is worth purchasing when you already own the original, I have your answer. It absolutely is.

The main negative I have is the UI; as of December 28th this could use a lot of work. As in, an OVERHAUL scale of work. But besides that, I'm in love with this iteration. The Workshop support looks incredibly promising to me, although I've yet to try it.

One thing I've seen listed as a negative is the fact that the traffic patterns change slightly whenever you replay the same audio file. And to be honest, I see that as more of a positive than a negative. Not only does it create even more replay value for me by keeping things fresh every game, but it also eliminates the highscore seekers who play the game for hours on end only to memorise the exact pattern of each song to get the perfect score. In my opinion, if getting a high score is that important to you, you need to reevaluate some priorities in your life.

But don't listen to me rambling. Buy the game!

First of all this is like the very best one of my favorite Rhythm games.
Follow your music, follow your ride.
Ride your music.
Just like you read the game's title. You take your Audio(Music) and you Surf(or ride it!)

This is incredibly nice to play when you just simply don't have anything to do and listen to music.

Choose one music from your computer and ride/surf it and follow the speed according to the intensity of the music!

With this new Audiosurf comparing to the first one brings a really nice feature, which is the Steam Workshop!
Create or Subscribe Skins and Modes made by the community to make your game fancier and meaby... funnier?
Well, there are certainly some you will meaby like, there is always good ones and bad ones.

But some of the Modes/Skins of these workshop items bring slow loadings, but that's alright. The game is still in development IT'S TAKING FOREVER TO DO ALL THE TOUCHES THOUGH .

Anyways, while in this game is still in Early Access/Beta there are still... bad stuff about it.
♦ The menu design is still bad, but not the worse
♦ The options menu doesn't bring much, you can't control the music/song volume
♦ You are not able to change your settings in the middle of the music, it takes you back to the main menu
♦ Slow loading times, this also depends what music/song and skin you choose, hopefully they greatly improve this in the future.

But one of the many things why I like this so much is.
♦ Appreciate the beautiful colors while playing. (Depends of which skin obviously)
♦ Get fun with ridiculous modes from workshop (Some which give some sort of insane speed boost)
♦ A "Live" Scoreboard
♦ The Loopings and the Corkscrews loops!

That's pretty much it I have to say.
I highly recommend this game if you like a lot of music and colors and you don't have anything else to do. (Just like I said above)

It's Audiosurf. With mods.

In all seriousness though, while I'm probably not qualified to comment on the official modes (I play my own mod almost exclusively), the outstanding mod support alone is enough for me to give it my highest recommendation.

With enough dedication, you can bend the game to your will and craft a game mode that's catered specifically to your own playstyle. Simply visit the workshop page to see the kinds of mods and skins that people have been able to create with even in this pre-release stage.

The game has some rough edges at the moment. The UI needs polish (getting addressed in an upcoming update), there are some conflicting opinions on certain gameplay tweaks from v1, and I've encountered a few bugs and visual glitches here and there. Nothing so far has been nearly enough to curb my overwhelming enthusiasm for the game though.

I also just found out that as of now I've put in more time in v2 than v1, with 300+ hours and counting.

For $15, this game has provided me with limitless entertainment.
Why not find out if it could do the same for you? =D

--November 25, 2014 Early Access Review--

Note: I originally did a review for this game on June 14, 2014 and continuously updated it, but I decided to re-do my review now that I recommend it.

Video preview of Audiosurf 2:

Alright, so it's been quite a while since I've bought this game and I have played it a lot now. I've gotten quite used to the way this game works, compared to the original Audiosurf, and I think I can finally recommend it to the general public. There's still some cons to go along with the pros, but it's a pretty good game still.

The Pros:
+ You can get A LOT more points on songs compared to the original Audiosurf, even on songs that had mainly blue traffic in Audiosurf.
+ Really fun if you can deal with the fast pace and gray blocks everywhere.
+ Absolutely stunning graphics, even on low setting. Huge improvement compared to the original.
+ The camera angle has been fixed and it is a lot better.
+ There is Steam Workshop compatibility, which is a great for people who want to try different things.
+ If you actually like the more faster pace compared to the original Audiosurf, then you'll like this a bit more.
+ The song selection interface has improved, now previewing the artist, song name, album, and cover art for the album/single.

The Cons:
- The difficulty is very hard now, even for normal mono, regardless of choice.
- It's very fast paced, compared to Audiosurf's mono.
- The whole track is a lot faster than the original mono, which again, makes the difficulty insanely harder.
- There are tons more gray "blocks" than the original, making it almost impossible to achieve stealth and attempt at every colored block.
- The gray "blocks" can sometimes be extremely close to the colored blocks, and in some cases, practically glued together with each other.
- Like it says right above this, the gray "blocks" can be extremely close to colored blocks, which can make you lose stealth in lots of cases, unless you're Harry Houdini or something.

So yeah, I suggest you get any Audiosurf (1 or 2). Be forewarned: Audiosurf 2 is a LOT faster and very difficult compared to Audiosurf (in terms of mono mode). The cons might be just my personal problems with the game, but I think you should still take those cons in consideration if you're deciding on whether to buy the game or not. Wait for the sales, my best advice. Still a good buy, however.

I hate to say it but, this one is better than the first.
Everything about it, I love. It's now one of my favorite games to play my music on. If I had to rate it, it would be 10/10

Its totally worth your money.

Seriously one of the best mindless games I have ever played... I have (way) too many hours on the original, and then when I found out there was a SECOND one, holy moly... absolutely stunning visuals, it's literally eye candy, and you can NEVER go wrong with playing to the music that YOU choose! 10/10 hands down!

Fun Game to play and relax too - despite this being "early Access" - the game is being updated regularly, and the competition in the tables is fun.

Completely modable and skinable, great fun - good choices every day on the song of trhe day, and thouroughly satisfied.

Personally I would say this is about as polished as it needs to be to start playing the game... there are a few bugs that are still being polished out naturally, however they are being worked through.

I say take the plunge and buy this it is worth it... :D

Greets! Surfers of the world!

This is my first review so go easy.

I have always been a mono player and I love that mode because you can really just unplug a bit and surf the song of your choice. With Audiosurf 2. You can't simply cruise through a song and have a good time. The blocks come faster and so close together that catching 80% of the blocks on a moderately difficult song is nearly impossible.

I want the Audiosurf track algorithm back. It was perfectly balanced and the tweaks that have been made in Audiosurf 2 break the game.

I regret purchasing this game. It has the feel of an Audiosurf knock off, not a sequel. The very component that made Audiosurf so much fun (the track algorithm) is the thing they have changed the most. If it aint broke don't fix it.

On the other hand, I really like the performance chages that have come in. Performance wise it is far superior to Audiosurf.
I like that the game is moddable. This gives players the ability to really trick out their experience.

Overall, I srongly recommend that you buy the original and forget about this one. It is all flash and no substance.

It's got a few kinks to work out--especially UI (which according to the news, will be fixed, very soon and I'm excited for that), but otherwise it's all the good fun of the first game with a bit more graphical finesse, steam workshop functions, and a bunch of silly modes not limited to the ol' favorite classic mono. If one has to pick between this and the original, for five dollars more I'd say, why not?
