After playing this, here's what I thought: Audiosurf is truly a masterpiece.

I love match 3 style games like Bejeweled and Jewel Quest series but this one is disappointing. Turba provides a few hours of enjoyment but the replay value is low. There really isn't much variety. After the song finishes (if you last that long) the game is over and your score is revealed. 1 star rating.

Went in with low expectations, but I must say I haven't played anything this unfun in a long time.

Puzzle games with a musical/rhythmical element can turn out like Lumines -- or, at the other end of the quality spectrum, you might get Turba.

The matching mechanics are deeply, fundamentally flawed in that the game expects you to select a large number of blocks, individually (the only quick-select shortcut is so situational it's useless), precisely, in a limited time, while the level layout shifts. It takes effort to get it this wrong!

(It's also terrible from an aesthetic standpoint, but does it even matter at that point?)

I do not reccommend this game. The idea for this game was great, the features promised was nice, but in the end the game didn't hold up to what it was offering. The play value was short, and honestly, you just lose your interest after awhile. If you like music games I would rather recommend Audiosurf.
