  • Excerpt: Call me old fashion, but I don't always demand a stunning narrative or artsy presentation. Sometimes all I ask for is dazzling visuals, effective mechanics, and enough explosions to make a Michael Bay film seems lackadaisical. Toss an intriguing concept into the mix and there's no way I can resist playing.

  • Excerpt: When Audiosurf cruised onto Steam in 2008, it became a quick hit among PC gamers and music enthusiasts alike. The gameplay, while simple, was endlessly addictive thanks to the ability to import music tracks and create levels using data taken from MP3s. This information is turned into tracks that players can ride along, letting them not only listen to their own music while playing, but really experience their songs in a new way.

  • Excerpt: I'm a sucker for any game that can integrate music into how it actually plays. Rez ? Definitely. Every beat-matching music game from Frequency to Rock Band and Activision's Hero games? Played every single one of them - well, except that 80s one a while back and the Van Halen game - but hey, by the end of 2009, who wasn't sick of plastic-guitar games? Anyway, AudioSurf - played that for many, many hours.

  • Summary: There's a good chance you've already played a game like Beat Hazard. In this downloadable dual-stick shoot-'em-up, you maneuver a small spacecraft about the screen, blowing up asteroids and other vessels before they can turn you into space dust. Countless games have used this ever-popular formula, but Beat Hazard stands out because its gameplay molds itself to the rhythm of the music tracks you import.
  • Pros: Old-fashioned shoot-'em-up action molds itself to your own custom soundtrack, Colorful, chaotic visuals, Survival mode provides a robust challenge, Persistent leveling and online leaderboards give a sense of progression
  • Cons: Not a lot of variety in terms of modes, power-ups, or enemy types, The strobe flashing is overdone, Incredibly weak sound effects, No iTunes support

  • Excerpt: Beat Hazard это удачная смесь идей из таких игр как Audio surf, Asteroids и Geometry wars. Геймплейно Beat Hazard представляет из себя аркадную стрелялку в космическом сеттинге. Основной задачей является выживание в весьма агрессивно настроенном космосе. Роль врагов выполняют кучи космического мусора и различные недружелюбные космические корабли, самые большие из которых являются своеобразными минибоссами.

  • Summary: Зато для большой компании Beat Hazard будет подарком. Даже вдвоем, по очереди, играть очень весело, потому как смотреть за происходящим никак не менее весело, чем в нем участвовать.

  • Summary: Die Idee ist gut, doch Beat Hazard macht zu wenig draus: Obwohl die Gegnerwellen des Zweistick-Shooters aus mp3-Dateien berechnet werden, reagieren sie viel zu wenig auf die Musik. Sicher, die Projektile blitzen im Takt, doch der Strobo-Effekt ist deutlich anstrengender für die Augen als in anderen Psychedelik-Shootern wie . Warum drehen stattdessen nicht die Gegner rhythmisch ihre Bahnen?
  • Pros: tolle Spielidee, Lieblingslieder machen die Action doppelt so spaßig, motivierendes Sammeln und Kombinieren von Extras, flüssige Internet-Duelle und Koop-Matches (PC), präzise Steuerung (PC und iOS), energetischer elektronischer Soundtrack
  • Cons: wenig Abwechslung, öde designte, kaum animierte Gegner, Feindwellen reagieren kaum auf Musik, kraftlose Soundeffekte, übertriebener Strobo- Effekt lässt die Augen tränen, nur vier mitgelieferte Musikstücke (iOS)

  • Excerpt: Bizonyos fejlesztők évekig hitegetik a játékosokat azzal, hogy feltalálták a virtuális spanyolviaszt, holott csak önnön kreativitásuk határait próbálják feledtetni azzal, hogy innovációként hirdetik alkotásukat. A Beat Hazard alkotója, Steve Hunt egy ötlettel is képes forradalmat kiváltani, még ha az nem is több egy világvégi parasztlázadásnál.
  • Pros: + innovatív ötleten alapuló, kifejezetten élvezetes játékmenet, melyet a saját zenéd irányít
  • Cons: - bizonyos számokkal nem igazán tud mit kezdeni a játék; akadnak idegesítő tervezési hibák, melyek negatív hatással lehetnek a játékélményre
