Au lieu de voir des personnages qui réagissent en arrière-plan à des scripts prédéfinis dans une interface de jeu en 2D abstraite, vous contrôlez ici des personnages en 3D et réagissez avec eux. Cela signifie que vous portez votre attention sur les actions de ces personnages ! En jouant, vous créez votre propre séquence de combat en fonction des touches sur lesquelles vous appuyez. Nous vous permettons également de retirer toutes les autres sections de l’interface (comme le score) afin que vous vous intéressiez uniquement à l’action !

KickBeat propose une campagne solo complète dotée de superbes animations peintes à la main et d’un style graphique unique.

Que ce jeu devient Frustrant, il est sympathique au début, le mode campagne est farfelu, mais au moins il y en à un et il produit de l'intérêt. Mais ce jeu s'avère tellement limité, derrière son concept faussement original se trouve des défauts aberrants.
À partir du mode difficile, obtenir 5 étoiles deviens très dur, pourtant, vous aurez beau réussir la quasi-totalité des notes, vous n'obtiendriez pas la note maximale, et en cause, le manque de visibilité et le rythme qui n'est pas Syncro avec la musique. Vous aurez beau avoir l'impression de taper la touche au bon moment, vous n'êtes pas en rythme pour avoir le perfect.
Entre autres, la difficulté et faussement intéressante, il y pas 10 000 patterns, ça ne va pas plus vite, et c'est dommage. Le nombre de musiques se compte seulement par quelque dizaine.

Dans le genre des jeux de Rythme, Osu (gratuit) reste beaucoup mieux que ce jeu, dont je vous déconseille l'achat, il compte en effet des milliers de musiques et plusieurs modes de jeu.

KickBeat is a rhythm game that's almost good, but doesn't quite hit the mark.

For starters there are only 24 tracks, and they're pretty much all either what wikipedia defines as 'Industrial Rock'/'NuMetal' or the 6 electronica/dance tracks from Electronic Super Joy. This ultimately leads to a pretty low amount of genres. There is an option to make custom tracks out of your own songs, and while you can set the BPM, you cannot add true custom tracking as far as I can tell, leading to a sub-par experience there.

As many other reviews have noted, the notes don't really match up with the rhythm that much, so you will primarily be relying on the visuals to know when to press buttons. This leads into another large flaw of the game - the visuals are incredibly noisy, often making it a strain to know when the 'enemies' are coming.

Another mechanical quirk of the game are the 'power up' orbs. These primarily just give you bonus points or multipliers. There's also a shockwave (clears nearby enemies) and a shield, but using those actually grants less points than not using them. The quirk is that you have to doubletap the button in order to pickup the orb. On the higher difficulties, missing an orb counts as getting hit. This is problematic because it can quickly grow incredibly tiresome to doubletap orb wielding enemies in succession.

The game was initially designed for consoles - as such I used a controller for it, but that brought its own slew of problems. On expert/master difficulty, there are often enemies coming from three directions. As almost anyone who plays on a controller is aware of, pressing an opposing pair of buttons (example: A+Y or X+B) on a controller is incredibly awkward. Combine this with needing to doubletap, and getting punished for hitting extra buttons, leads to a frustrating setup. I imagine this is much easier with a keyboard, but it does raise the question of why the game was designed this way to begin with since it initially launched on console.

Finally, I just wanted to point out the silly unlock system the game uses. You're stuck with playing as the male character until you complete the game's story as him - then you can use the female. Despite being given seperate 'stories' they both play the exact same songs, and have the same gameplay.

Oh - right, this game actually has a story. It's, as to be expected, absurdly terrible. This isn't a problem in itself, except for the fact that there are a couple brief unskippable cutscene parts associated with the 'boss battles' which are painful to sit through.


Anyway, despite all my whining, I did finish the game - which is saying something in itself. There is potential here, and if you picked this up in a bundle, it's worth giving a whirl. Ultimately however, I cannot recommend actually buying this game by itself.

Wow I really don't get the naysayers... maybe some people have sync issues? It seems perfectly synced to me, once I got into it I got lots of perfects. Yes, it's not all on the beat but it even tells you this during the tutorial/training, it's not exclusively using the drumbeats, it's more about the feel of the song I'd say.
I got it in the humble bundle as well and didn't expect too much of it, but I have to say it's really fun. It seems really hard at first, but I got the hang of it in my first hour of playing and it feels awesome when you do get it and start pummeling strings of baddies in a row.
I can't play it too long at once though, playing on a keyboard works fine but after a little over an hour my hand starts aching. It's a great game for a few quick rounds though, and the advantage over something like guitar hero seems to be that the action continues very quickly, 10 seconds or so after a song ends a new one can be starting if you want.

this game reminds me of the Keep the beat like games like Parapa the rappa back on the PS1 ah good times any way this game ROCKS the story is decent with nice art work the gameplay is solid with flashy graphics and simple and easy to understand controls and the Music just so Awesome

HOWEVER this game has a rather high difficulty curve and the turtoral won't really help out much as this game has very fast pace gameplay

and sadly it has some rather nasty Bugs one being and this is also a Recomendation to players DISABLE the Steam Overlay for this game unless you like the frame rate to drop every time you get an achevment

and i also like to say something about the mode not fetured in other versions of this game the game mode where you can make your own stages up to me this is what i would call an expiermental add on simply due to the fact it would never ever reach the same qauality as the games main playlist

but all in all if you like to kick some minion butt to the sounds of music this game is SO for you

plus it has Massive Replay value



Ups

graphics
story
gameplay
soundtrack
replay value rewards

mehs

leader board
expiremental game mode

bads

steam overlay bug
no multi player game mode
rather high difficulti curve



final verdict

an awsome keep the beat Kung-Fu game
if you like Gitar Hero or some other kind of keep the beat play style games this is on i highly recomdend for you

i give this game

9/10

This is just a ton of fun, and I don't know how I had never heard of it. KickBeat is a DDR-style rhythm game with a holistic sensibility about the beat, jumping among drums, guitar, and vocals as they become prominent in the song. It doesn't feel like you're playing the drums with your keyboard; it feels like you're conducting the whole song. The mapping of the built-in songs is precise and joyful. The songs themselves are way more industrial-metal than I usually prefer, but in this game they work perfectly, and you'll agree with me even if it's not your genre.

Apart from gameplay, one thing that really stands out is the unexpectedly hilarious writing of the cutscenes. Honest belly laughs. It's baffling how writers with such good instincts could name their game KickBeat, possibly the most forgettable name for a video game I can think of, right up there with the equally underappreciated Defender's Quest.

The upper difficulty levels sometimes require three simultaneous button presses, and some keyboards -- including both of mine -- have an issue with "ghosting" that prevents them from registering all three. This is not a game bug, it's a hardware bug, but it's still something to be aware of before you buy. The lower difficulty levels are still plenty satisfying and offer lots of replayability.

Full-throated recommendation. This game deserved press and didn't get it.

This game has quickly become one of my favourite games, easy to learn and enjoy, can be a tad tricky but that comes with what a should do is to pose a challenge, and it does just that, and the integration of your own music just adds to that enjoyment I must say.

This game is both visually pleasing and challenging. I love the gameplay and concept.
For all the people who can't stop crying about their game not being in sync with music, please consider going to the Options and adjusting the Lag Settings in Audio Settings.

Ok, first comes first, I suggest to go straight to the hardest difficulty, since that's the only one where I can actually recognize the rhythm; it's a mid-range challenge, so if you feel you are very good but not particularly exceptional at this kind of games it should be up your alley.
Would have preferred a bigger song selection and some extra way to interact, but I really liked the idea to add some cinematic feeling to the gameplay, especially when coupled with the right amount of cheesiness; I also extremely enjoyed the double tap mechanism, that allows the player to ignore bonuses while getting used to the game and stepping up the challenge by collecting them when he feels confident enough afterwards.

It's a rhythm based game that doesn't follow the rhythm very well. Sometimes it will do the drum beat, sometimes it will do the guitar beat. Sometimes it will throw the enemies faster, sometimes slower(during the same sequence).

Combine this with changing enemy positions meaning the same beat/riff/whatever changes required keys to press, add horrible camera placement, and you've got a recipe for a game that you will play for 40 minutes and get frustrated with it

Kickbeat is a really fun game, if you have the patience to get over a learning curve. It’s a bit hard at first, but if you stick with it, it’s a fun play. Imagine something like Sequence or DDR on a keyboard. The story is cheesy, the graphics are beautiful. You play as a ninja whose moves are determined by your pecking at the keyboard in a colored correspondence to music. The music is mostly rock from bands you’ve probably never heard of sprinkled with a little Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson as well. It’s a refreshing take on the whole DDR for lazy people genre. Worth a play if you’re into these types of games. If you’re looking for humor, go with Sequence, if you’re looking for variety of music, go for Kickbeat. 7/10

This game concept is cool and new to me, kung fu fighting with rhythm game.... hmph. However as soon as you start playing, you find more and more interesting thing in the game like eh? you could use your own music for game. yeah use your own music, there is no time restriction or watever so you could just literally run a 10 hour song and play non-stop. But the beat for your own song doesn't fit correctly sometimes, the rhythm that is, but it is still satistifying. overall? Good. Shall U grab it? Probally during sales and if You are an Rhythm game fan. e.g OSU,Audition,Mstar.

This Game Is Awesome!! Cool SP mode. Good story line. Nice SP Songs! Then you can add your own music and play!
I recommend to play this game!

There is just one bad thig about this game. Sometimes it is hard to see what button u need to hit. All because too many fighters on the field so you cant see what color is behind of them. Or too much shining effect so you can't see what color need to press.

p.s.
I read previous rewievs there was said: ("It's a rhythm based game that doesn't follow the rhythm very well") - if song beat don't follow game rhythm then there is song options where u can configure beats and rhythm for song.

This game is amazing! Slight learning curve but nothing that a couple retries can't fix. The story and unlockables are great and you can use your own music although the stock music is surprisingly good. I can't find anything negative to say about this game so 10/10.

It was the frist game i played inside this kind of games, but i can say i loved it. The gameplay i hard at the beggneing, but when you get the hand of it you will actually enjoy this game. A lot.
It comes with Story Mod, which is also pretty cool, with two different playable Character (another 2 that later you'll unlock by getting all the stars), but the songs and enviroments on the story of each character are the same, so there isn't much diversity in that.
The beat your own music freature is a good concept, but needs to be developed a little bit more. It's confusing and we can't customize our songs to looks as good as the ones that came with the game.
The more you progress and win more stars on each track on different difficultys, you'll unlock rewards, which mainly are skins for the playable character.

I'd say this is a game worth to buy

I'd play it more if the button presses weren't so god damn strict. I was enjoying the tracks and I got to the first boss and heard Marylin Manson. The feel of the game was alright but the game seemed corny. If it didn't have a good track, it'd be just Kung fu music and it'd be boring. Someone said something about it being like darksouls with the strictness and I have to agree. This game was uninstalled due to rage because of this issue with my player skill.

Would I play the game again? Probably not I'll stick to guitar hero. Should you buy this game for 10 bucks? If you have the money laying around and you want a hard ddr with good music then yes.

Kick Beat is a fun rhythm game that tests your hand eye coordination to the beat of a musical track. You must protect the Music Orb by defeating the enemies that come your way in a Kung-Fu style type beat down. If you are into rhythm games, then I suggest this one. It's fun, graphically appealing and challenging. The beat pads seem to be a tad bit off for me when trying to score perfect hits, but I can deal with it.

Got this game in a Bundle and it seemed pretty nice so I downloaded it straight away... would be a nice rhythm/music game... If it followed the beat... Beat is all over the place, not good for a rhythm game (and yes, I tried adjusting the latency in the menu), beat is erratic, sometimes cleary off, enemies don't follow the music at all... you could play this game without music and it would be easier...
