IGN

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.

The original Audiosurf is the reason I downloaded Steam. 185 games later Audiosurf 2 is still my favorite game which I play every day. Now that the official release is out it is better in every way than the original. There is no other game out there that reacts as dynamically to music. If you like attacking scores on puzzle games like Tetris Attack, then puzzle league is for you. Play Vegas as an introduction and study how the scoring system works and you'll be hooked. If at first you can't compete then pick some obscure song that only you and a handfull of people own and capture that high score. Down the road you will get an email that someone dethroned you and you will laugh and re-attack their score. Thanks Dylan for listening to the fans and making the perfect game!

Improvement over the first one! Worth the price if you like to listen a lot of music. And no need to have your hard drive full of songs as you can blast them through Soundcloud service! This is the best way to enjoy your music if you want to just sit back & relax or try to be a hardcore player and get top points over leaderboards of all the possible songs. It's your call, but I guarantee you will enjoy your favorite music in totally new way! ;)

Now this is an awesome casual game. The original Audiosurf was a great deal of fun, but it was from another era, where people kept large directories full of music on their hard drives. This version can still use that music, if you still have it, but it also allows streaming music from Soundcloud.

I am having a lot of fun surfing to new music. Let me tell ya, I never thought much of dubstep, but some of that music is nightmare mode for surfing :)

I bought this game in 2013 and it just a "meh" level game. I didn't play it since then.

2 years of early access development turned it possibly one of the best rhythm games (on PC).

Buy it.

I've played this since the initial release to Early Access, and I have to say it is a very big improvement over the original Audiosurf with this game's official release sealing the deal for me, adding many user-friendly and competitive features, such as very nice looking and responsive UI and and many improvements to the scoreboard system.

It has all the good from the original Audiosurf, with mod support potentially giving it the infinite life cycle I think it deserves.
A must-buy for any music fan out there!

If you like music and racing games, then you need to give Audiosurf 2 a try. It's a great proof for the old adage that two great tastes go even better together.

Nearly an hour's playtime of this game, I already feel completely validated in my purchase of this game. It's awesome! The soundcloud integration just sends this game onto an altogether different level, I know i'm going to be playing this a lot.


Something I would like to point out, this game is very well optimized. My 'family' level laptop which has 5gb ram, 1.3ghz processor and Intel gfx , still plays this game at 60fps. That is amazing.


Just a great job by the dev on improving on a perfect game, adding Soundcloud integration, multi-OS support and outstanding performance. Bravo.

The extra game modes, skins and the option to search for a song on Soundcloud instead of having to own one to play it makes this far better than the original in my opinion. Definitely buy it if you enjoyed the first game.

the electronic music pieces i've made are being analysed and the game makes my music dance as if it is alive. so amazing! and i'm so glad it actually allows me to sign in soundcloud and play my music right off the internet :P thanks so much for this game!

I got Audiosurf 2 before full game realese and it was ok. But when the full version came out recently, it rocked. I was able to search soundcloud, and do a bunch of other stuff in it. Anyone who buys this game will have a feeling of adrenaline running through their mind while playing it and going through loops and corkscrews. And with selecting skins, it makes the game even better to see what people have created. There's been a huge change in Audiosurf and I can't wait to see whats next.

I previously wrote a negative review and I feel that it is unfair. Therefore I have changed my tone of this review.

I am a decent Audiosurf 1 eraser player. I am writing this review assuming you have played AS1 before. There are a few differences to note while playing this new sequel.
YOUTUBE: Click here to view one of my plays in AS1 for proof.

Note that these are differences/changes from the previous game, might be better suited for you or not.

Randomized Tracks
This is the biggest complaint of the game I have so far. Everytime you play a track, it's not the same patterns of colour blocks coming to you. Sometimes I see the live scoreboard and I see people scoring huge points for something impossible on my own track at that specific moment. Why not be consistent? In AS1, only bonuses were randomly generated.

-The blocks stay on the board for a longer period of time
Being a player who usually choose fast songs, this ultimately makes things harder for me. I am constantly looking at a full board and it is hard to visualize which blocks are already scored and ready to leave. It's so long that I have to exceed the limit of rows in order to clear the block, assuming the blocks were about to score. This is something I am trying to adapt to.

-Too many whites
Again, being a player who choose fast songs, whites ♥♥♥♥ the puzzle scoring up quite often and can be quite disastrous. We only pick whites up because of the attractive bonus points. But it seems that whites are almost as numerous as yellows now or even blues? Again, this is something I am trying to adapt to, I am treating this as a new challenge for me.

-No difficulty setting
In AS1 you had the option to choose from Casual, Pro, Hardcore and I was usually playing Pro.


Overall, I think the change of UI was quite refreshing, however I feel there is much room for improvement. Adding support for SoundCloud is great, however I cannot view my own playlists or likes which is kinda of missing the point.

These are my first impressions so FAR. If you are a veteran player, you might have to take some time and practice to get used to the new rules. Other than that, this is a new refreshing game which will get you back to AS!

Time to dethrone!

When I first played Audiosurf 2, I expected it to be pretty much like the original, only flashier. This was not a bad thing, as the original game had eveything pretty much correct and further aesthetics could only serve to make the game better. Unfortunately, instead of adding stronger aesthetics, Audiosurf 2 did the exact opposite. Simply by loading it up, the menu appeared very unpolished, the gameplay felt stagnant, and the visuals were bland at best. This was in contrast to the original's flashy title, fluid and immersive gameplay, and cool backgrounds which moved to the music, adding to the experience.

All of that, however, was early on in Audiosurf 2's Early Access period and I decided to wait for a full release for a final judgement. Now that the game has been fully released, I can now say this: not much has changed. The menu is still boring, the gameplay is still anything but fluid or immersive, and the background visuals have disappeared. Audiosurf 2 is practically a shadow of the original Audiosurf and a huge disappointment. If you come to this game looking for an awesome, immersive and new way to experience your music, stick to the original.

FINAL VERDICT: 4/10
