    It looks excellent but it all depends on the detection, which is very hard for developers to master.

    Vib Ribbon was a PSone game where you could put your audio CDs in and you'd play a game based on the music. You had to jump over dips, climb blocks etc. and if you pressed the wrong button you'd stumble. Honest to God, I absolutely loved that game. But it only worked well for 50% of the songs.

    Absoloutely BRILLIANT :D

    Just played "Jason Mraz - You And I Both", which is a song I love, and it was soooo cool, possibly better than Guitar Hero for the simple fact I'm playing all the songs I want to play :D Utter brilliance and it's getting bought ...

    And me. Do a search for Audiosurf of Youtube ;)

    I'm addicted to it. Trying new songs, the mesmerising effects, the thrill-rush when a slow song kicks in and goes crazy so your car speeds right up to match the song, the puzzle element ... wonderful :)

    its weird, it looks like it doesnt even go in time with the song, just random things you have to get while the song is on in the background

    It goes in time with sections of the song, like when certain notes are hit or the beat changes dramatically. It's not a rhythm game like Guitar Hero where you have to hit every beat.

    You guys really should try the demo at least :)

    The STEAM website, you need STEAM installed to play it. Bit rubbish but it uses an online scoreboard to send your scores off to and see how good you're doing.

    I've tried about fifteen songs so far and I'm not #1 on any of them :( Highest I'm ranked on a song is #3

    Ohhh no, didn't realise it was STEAM. I've had so much trouble with STEAM stuff, they can fuck off.

    Was looking forward to it as well, oh well. I'll have to look at importing a PS3 for Rock Band. Only costs £410 more...

    It's a special kind of anti-piracy download system, it's known for being a complete pain in the arse. It works great for some, it totally stuffs some systems up. I wouldn't trust it as far as I could throw the disc it came on to be honest.

    Apparantly it had problems in its early days but it works fine now. Working fine for me in any case.

    Had a quick blast of AudioSurf on my dinner, quality :) I played the song "Still Alive" from the Portal game, had a ball :D

    I'll have to get some new MP3's to try with the game.

    There are other ways of getting the game so STEAM isn't installed, but then you can't submit scores online and get the patches etc I imagine.

    It's $2.50, it's hardly breaking the bank if you don't like the game :LOL:

    Watch the Youtube vids, you'll get a feel for it there too.

    But yep, I'm pretty sure Steam has a demo as well :))
