Audiosurf review

Ride Your Music Spectrum

My friends pick up Audiosurf before I did and when I first saw the game in action I wasn't so impressed but when I saw it on sale on Steam I decided the pick it up and give it a more in depth look.

The gameplay is pretty simple in that the player picks a song from their music collector on their computers and the game calculates the different parts of the music (metre, tempo, volume, etc.) and creates a roller coster like track that players ride and places colored blocks along the track that players try and pick up. Their are multiple options on how the blocks are laid out; whether having colored and grey blocks, multiple colors that appoint different point values, co-op, and a couple others that make playing the same song different.
Visually the game looks very simple and is basically a big visualizer with mostly neon bright colors and flashing lights, which makes the game very compatible to play on even the oldest or underpowered computer out their.
Of course the music is the most appealing part of the game because it's the player that choices the song to be played; whether it's metal, techno, classical, rock or what ever the game makes the ride enjoyable.

As I said in the introduction I wasn't that impressed with the game but after a extended round of play I've changed a bit that for the price I paid it was worth it.
