I don't play many runner games, but this one definitely was very fun (in spite of Odyssey, a brutal level which takes place early at the end of the very first world).
Be advised that the game starts easy to become hard later, but levels can be learned by heart exactly like in a rythm game ('though not needed) so you should eventually succeed.

For those who want more challenge, there is a fair amount of replayability thanks to interesting, challenging achievements - not the typical "collect 1000 boxes" or "kill 500 zombies", no the "play better" kind of achievements.

It was okay, but not interesting or varied enough for me to continue spending my time to overcome the challenge of it.

I highly reccomend this game if you enjoy a fun but still kinda frustrating challage. I remember playing this orginally on wii with my friend, and was super excited to find it here. I do have to say that is visuals can strain your eyes a little from the fast pace but that could be just my eyes. I also have to say the controlls can be confusing at first but if you play these kinds of fast games often you can be able to remember easy. This is also a great game to practice reaction timing. Over all an extremely enjoyable game
