Sound Shapes Review

GamerNode
22 September 2012
  • Summary: So, what makes a good videogame? After playing Sound Shapes I'm less inclined to say that engaging mechanics need be part of the equation. Play isn’t an act of joy in itself, but a means to a musical end.
  • Pros: Sublime mix of visuals and audio, Impeccable presentation, Streamlined level editor
  • Cons: Short, Platforming is fairly rudimentary

The Shape of Games to Come

  • Conclusion: Once again, despite Roger Ebert, a game finds a way to blend art and gameplay together in a fun and accessible way. Sound Shapes isn't really like anything else, and that's a shame because more games could stand to experiment like this.

Sound Shapes Review

VideoGamer.com
26 August 2012
  • Excerpt: The Vita is an extraordinarily frustrating console. The tech is there. The design is there. Everything is in place for Sony's expensive little beauty to soar into the handheld gaming stratosphere. And yet, with the world at its feet, there is nothing to play. The fine Gravity Rush notwithstanding, the Vita landscape has been barren and exasperating.

  • Conclusion: Sound Shapes boasts an effortless dedication to intoxicating the player's senses through its sights and sounds. Call it distilled bliss or displaced affection, but there's an explicit sense of euphoria acquired by absorbing Sound Shapes' rich presentation. It's great at being a game, but it's better understood as a favorite song or album. It's something to be played and enjoyed if for no other reason than the sheer pleasure of repeating the process.

  • Conclusion: The trickiest part of this simple scheme to master is the sprint ability. By holding a button, you move faster, and this is necessary to clear certain jumps or avoid patrolling enemies. But you can't grab onto a surface when you're running. It's a tough rule to wrap your head around because there are many instances when speed is imperative while you're grabbing onto a vertical surface, and you momentarily forget that tapping that tantalizing button will send you...
  • Pros: Incredible and diverse soundtrack, Clever and varied platforming challenges, Striking visual design, In-depth level editor and easy sharing tools, Beat School and Death Mode push your understanding of level design.

  • Conclusion: Sound Shapes is a short, unremarkable platformer that's transformed into something quite special when mixed with the sights and sounds of its killer line-up of artists

Review: Sound Shapes

psx-sense.nl
3 September 2013
  • Conclusion: Sound Shapes mag één van de hoogtepunten worden genoemd als het gaat om games die uit de stal van Sony komen in 2012. Queasy Games weet samen met de grafische artiesten en muzikanten een speciale titel te maken die veel platformplezier biedt, maar ook erg uitdagend kan zijn. De albums hebben elk een eigen thema, stijl en muziek en dat zorgt voor een lading aan variatie.
  • Pros: Speelt lekker, Origineel, Variatie, Kunstzinnig leveldesign, Levels maken
  • Cons: Meer albums graag, Saves syncen werkt niet goed

Sound Shapes e il testimone di MTV

  • Conclusion: Per questa recensione è stato utilizzato un codice di sedici cifre, quello della mia carta di credito, con cui ho acquistato Sound Shapes. Godendomelo poi sia su PS Vita (principalmente), che PS3 (grazie al sistema di sincronizzazione dei salvataggi). Ho ultimato gli album principali, girovagato un po' per i livelli creati dagli altri giocatori e dedicato in realtà solo un paio d'ore alla modalità Morte.

Sound Shapes - Review

Gamezapp
20 September 2012
  • Summary: Sound Shapes ist der nächste Download-Hit, der nahezu aus dem Nichts erscheint und der Retail-Konkurrenz die lange Nase zeigt. Sämtliche Elemente mögen aus Rez, LittleBigPlanet oder auch Lumines entliehen sein, aber das Gesamtergebnis ist etwas völlig Eigenständiges. Es ist leicht zu verstehen und schnell faszinierend. Sofort habe ich als Spieler das Gefühl, eins mit der Musik zu sein.
  • Pros: faszinierender Mix aus Jump ’n’ Run und Musikspiel, herausragender Editor, fantastischer Soundtrack, sehr gutes sowie ideenreiches Level-Design, charmant-schlichter Grafikstil
  • Cons: relativ wenig Levels, Todesmodus ist dank Zufallsgenerator nicht frei von Glück

Análisis Sound Shapes

18 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Sound Shapes ha estado flotando de forma ambigua en el éter de PlayStation durante un tiempo. Originalmente creado como un exclusivo de PlayStation Vita, hará más de un año que dijimos por primera vez que tenía bastante potencial como para ser título también de PlayStation 3. Pero Sound Shapes desapareció de la ventana de lanzamientos, y los jugadores ansiosos tuvieron que esperar pacientemente para que, supuestamente, sus desarrolladores, Queasy Games, pudieran...
