About This Game

By blending gameplay with music visualization, Audiosurf puts you inside your music in a way nothing else can. Use your own music to create your own experience. The shape, the speed, and the mood of each ride is determined by the song you choose.

What are the biggest improvements from Audiosurf 1?

Ever-expanding new ways to play with over 500 and counting player-created mods and skins on Workshop.. Additional layers of strategy tied to the song’s biggest moments. In-game leaderboards let you compare your score moment to moment against your friends and rivals even when they’re not online. Enhanced graphics quality. Ability to search for music (including online music). Available on Mac and Linux!


What’s new about Mono mode in Audiosurf 2?

In Audiosurf 2 your timing in mono mode is more important than ever. You’ve got to strategize to get your grid full at the most intense moments of songs to get the most points. Look ahead in the distance for corkscrew loops with powerups to know when these moments will occur.


What do I get in the demo?

The demo allows players to play any song they want, for their first 3 songs. After that, they can play the Song of the Day, everyday, as many times as they want.


Is there a mode that focuses on dodging blocks?

Yes, there's a new Ninja mode. It has a big bonus for hitting no spikes and creates intense spike fields to weave through. It’s faster than regular Mono and the second-to-second challenge of avoiding spikes is harder. For even more challenge there’s ninja turbo. It’s too fast for you.


What’s new about the Puzzle modes in Audiosurf 2:

Just as with Mono mode, your timing on Puzzle modes is now more important than ever. Push, Shuffle, Erase, or Scoop blocks at the just the right moments to take full advantage of multiplier powerups that come at the most intense moments of songs.


Can players make their own mods and skins to share on Steam Workshop?

Yes! There’s detailed documentation on making Audiosurf 2 skins available here: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=413812198
Also, every mode and skin in the games comes with the script source code and assets. Players can use any of the official modes/skins as a starting place.

Audiosurf 2 is a lane based Rhythm game where the tracks are created by the music you are playing. If you have played the first you know exactly what to expect here as it is a very “more of the same” sequel. You still have Mono mode where the goal is to simply collect blocks and avoid the gray ones while you also have four characters that require you to match blocks up to their respective colors. You have two new modes introduced to this sequel, qne is called Wakeboarding, a mode very similar to Mono but you now have the option to jump which can be used to avoid certain blocks or to pull off tricks. The other is called AudioSprint which plays like a game from the Runner genre in which you try to dodge obstacles via sliding or jumping while being unable to lower your speed or stop. It is an interesting change of pace from the usual brick collecting and one that can be played with three other players via local multiplayer.

Soundcloud has been added and allows you to search up plenty of music even if you have none on your PC which is a great feature. One thing that has seen a very big improvement from the original Audiosurf is the track generation for the slower placed songs and genre which flow much better with the pace of the song. Leaderboards are back and unlike the original you no longer have to sign up for a separate account to compete as it uses your Steam profile instead which was one of the things that bugged me most about the original. What really adds a lot of value and longevity to Audiosurf 2 is the community itself. This is a very mod friendly title in where you can create your own modes and skins to make some really neat stuff such as a Sonic theme, fling a plane to collect more fuel and even a Shmup created by your music.

The new modes, better graphics, Soundcloud and even the mods themselves don't necessarily make this sequel a must have for those that already own the original. When it comes down to it, it is bigger, better and more content filled than it ever was before yet it's still the same familiar gameplay. There is nothing wrong with that but it does make it a bit of a hard bargain to buy a new game to do essentially the same thing. In a rather rare move for a game on the PC there is a demo available to actually see for yourself if this game is worth your purchase beforehand which is rather awesome of them. For those new to the series this is definitely the one to get however, as this is without a doubt the superior title and a must have for those seeking a fun, competitive rhythm game.

Have you ever just wanted to sit back and just listen to your music, but there's nothing to do? Too boring, but you still wanna jam out to your song and have fun with it too?

Wait no more- audiosurf 2 is the game for you.

The game makes a level based around your song, synched up to the beats of ANY song you want. Yes, literally any song.

Best of all, gives you something fun as hell to do while jamming out. No more meaningless to listening to your song over and over again, a new level every time.

9/10.

Audiosurf is graphically weak and could have been released over 15 years ago. I can't notice any major improvements over the original game social features excluded - the track doesn't always match the song well and the gameplay is as mundane as ever, I'd rather use the game as music visualizer and watch the stage roll by itself.
Getting the first game is probably your best bet. Just try the demo first.

A very simple concept executed very well. With the only primary game mechanic being 'left' or 'right', you wouldn't think AS 2 had much to work with, and you'd be right actually. Fundamentally speaking this game is very basic. Sure, there's an array of modes and the Workshop support only encourages more content over time, but everything is going to come back to that left and right mechanic. This isn't a bad thing though. AS 2 takes a very simple mechanic and refines it to the point of near perfection. Not once have I felt let down by the game. If I've missed a block, it has always been my fault. This is further supported by the stellar gameplay. On my mid-range gaming PC I never dropped below 100 FPS on high settings, making the gameplay as good as you'll ever want it.

Basically, Audiosurf 2 is far from clever but it's so well refined and addicting to play you wont care. You can stream sounds via the Cloud, play songs straight from your computer and enjoy your favourite tunes in an array of different modes and themes. One of the my enjoyable games I've played in recent years.

I do like the game, and play it some times. And those are probably once each month or two months. I bought it for 3$ when it was on sale, but I think that $14 is absolutely a scam. This game, is good. But it won't give you countless hours of gameplay. Pretty easy to get bored of it.

I'd pay $14 if it was something that had many possibilities of gameplay. There's a SHITON of games that'll cost from 10 to 20 dollars, while they're worth like 5. This is one of'em.

What is Audiosurf 2?

Well my friend, I'm glad you asked. Audiosurf 2 is a rhythm-based game created in 2015 by developer Dylan Fitterer. The original game was well recieved by critics and fans and was quite popular in the gaming community so why not release another game you know?

Ok whats the deal here, it can't be much different to the original can it?

Well it kind of is to be honest. I've only ever played the demo of the original Audiosurf game which was released back in February 2008 and there is a tonne more content on this 'overhauled' version of the game. New modes, skins to surf on, connectivity to Soundcloud so you don't actually need to have music on your disk drive to actually play the game and Steam Workshop capabilities make this a helluva' lot better than the original.

I've never played the original game, what is it about?

So the objective of Audiosurf is to rack up points by hitting the procedurally placed 'blocks' on the track of the level, which can be controlled by either a controller, mouse or even keyboard if you're feeling lucky enough... Punk. As well as this, you need to dodge the grey 'blocks' in the track, otherwise you'll lose a combo or streak of points and it'll be higher to obtain that high-score that you've been spending four and a half days trying to achieve.


What sorts of songs can you play on this?

Anything your heart desires! Depending on the BPM of the track, it changes the difficulty of the game entirely. Say for example you're into music like LCD Soundsystem and Coldplay with most of the time, a low BPM, the game should be somewhat easy if you know what you're doing. However, if you like genres of music with a higher BPM such as Gabber or Speedcore, then get ready for a bumpy ride my friend.


Is this game worth getting at all?

Absolutely! If you're a fan of music or rhythm-based games, then this is definitely something you need to pickup in the near future or when it goes on sale. I actually bought it for full price back near its release date but I've definitely got the capacity to run a load more hours into the game.

A great upgrade to Audiosurf with the improved controls, Soundcloud, and world ranking systems.

I was lukewarm to the idea of playing another "music surf" game, since I had exhausted the first audiosurf and fellow peers did not recommend the new one being supposedly early access, but the game at this point in my reviewing works pretty flawlessly and fantastically. A million times more variation to the original, with a steam workshop dedicated to new game modes, soundcloud support which is fantastic for me since I haven't been able to transfer my old music from the computer on to the new one, and plenty of visual skins to keep the presentation and aesthetic of surfing very fresh. It will always come down to one thing; Audiosurf doesn't have many flaws to point out in the first place, and the same applies here.

This game is better. It does everything that the original Audiosurf did, but better. Better graphics, more customizability, more more more. Only downside is that sometimes it can confusing to find the mode you're looking for.

Second installment of my favourite rhythm game, a fine successor with improved graphics and better level generation algorythm. The Steam Workshop integration was a good idea, you can find some good skins and mods there. (I recommend the skin "Glacier".)

Overall it's a pretty good game. Better visuals, more game modes and the added workshop portion adds even more content. However if you have played Audiosurf for the Mono and Ninja mono game modes, then you will be disappointed. Those two modes are my favorite and are completely changed for the worse in Audiosurf 2. If you're looking to pick up this game to play those game modes, I would stick with the original Audiosurf, otherwise I would recommend this game.

The concept of the game is great, but the gameplay is awful.

I used to play Audiosurf and it was pretty much ok, the UI was horrendous but the game was smooth when the music started to run. That's the word, Audiosurf 2 just isn't smooth enough, you don't get in sync with the music because something is wrong. The obstacles should "tilt" the music when you hit them, the way it is now you never know if you have hit something or not. The track feels weird, sometimes you start to go uphill and you can't even see what's ahead (a disaster for ninja mode). Unfortunately I couldn't bear to play this game for more than a few minutes to find out exactly where it went wrong, I just went back to the original Audiosurf. The goal with these kind of games is to relax, Audiosurf 2 does the opposite of that. It feels like the game is still in beta.

There's lots of room for improvement here, I'll give it another try after a few months. I hope it gets updated, I really want to enjoy this game.

Basically if you ever wanted to literally ride a guitar rif, this is the game for you, simple gameplay is fun and advance gameplay is very very challenging, and the mod community is making new game modes and skins all the time. Absolute blast to play when you find that new song youve been groovin to or an old favorite. Highly recommend to all.
