Hey everyone, new here, and i hope to contribute some good stuff
Hopefully, this isn't in the wrong place. Please, tell me if it is.
So anyways, i'll be doing a review of Audiosurf, a good little (Rather large actually) indie gem.
As the name implies, you're basically surfing your audio in this game, collecting
colored blocks to make matches in a vivid enviroment that changes to match the
pace of the music.http://www.audio-surf.com/
Now, let's start out by seeing the pluses.
Pro #1: Very flexible system requirements, going from very low-end to the most powerful
Pro #2: Great game if you enjoy music, especially because you can use any
Pro #3: It's compatible with almost all music formats, even .flac and .ogg!
Pro #4: Great graphics on the higher settings.
Pro #5: Many different game modes with three difficulties makes it fun for hardcore
gamers and casual gamers alike.
Pro #6: "Audiosurf Radio" makes up for lack of music with new tracks every friday.
Pro #7: Achievement system gives you something to go for.
Pro #8: The game can appeal to both headbangers and Mozart fans, as the game
is no faster than the music you play.
However, no game comes without minuses.
Con #1: Fairly sharp learning curve. There is a tutorial, but the rest is up to you.
Con #2: Highest graphical settings are very CPU intensive.
Con #3: Some gamemodes are undertipped pointwise compared to others.
Con #4: Nearly impossible to get a high score on any known song unless you've
been playing non-stop since the beta came out.
Con #5: Major jump between the difficulties. A player who's used to Casual (Easy)
does not stand any chance if faced with Elite (Hard).
Con #6: "Audiosurf Radio" shows no direct way of downloading broadcasted music.
Con #7: Some achievements are impossible with the Mono characters.
Con #8: There's not much action for you if you don't like heavier music.
This would add up to an average score, right? Hell no. The pros are so much
bigger than the cons, so i will end up giving it:8/10
If you like listening to music, i strongly recommend trying Audiosurf. It's one of
those games that will have you staring intensely at the screen while playing.
