I'd heard about Audiosurf before, but after I read a few reviews I thought I just had to try it.

It is awesome.

I just can't put my finger on what is so good about it... for those who don't know, you feed it whatever music you have on your computer, and it makes tracks. Slow parts of songs make the track go uphill, fast goes downhill, and the blocks you collect correspend to the beats (wait I haven't gotten to that yet). Faster music has more beats in hotter colours (which are worth more points).

You then drive along those tracks collecting coloured blocks in a grid below you, and try to make groups of 3 or more. It might not sound like much but you really have to play it to appreciate it.

There are different vehicles to drive in and each does something different. One removes the colours, leaving you with coloured blocks to collect and grey blocks to dodge, one can hold a block then release it later, one can shuffle the blocks you've collected, one even splits the road and gives you two different vehicles to control.

The graphics, while by no means cutting edge, are very stylish and suit the game well. The audio consists of your music (obviously) as well as sounds for collecting blocks and making groups (although you can turn them off if you just want to hear your music).

To be honest, I can't really describe it in words. From the reviews I thought "meh... could be interesting", however playing it is like "whoa!". I also bought the game before the demo ran out (you can only play 4 songs, then the demo runs out), which I practically NEVER do.

The only real downside I could find? As far as I'm aware, its only available on Steam, my old nemesis (OK, I had trouble installing the Orange Box... but I shouldn't), although this isn't an anti-steam post. I'd just like to point out that I DID have a problem with Steam when it came to this (after I bought it, it still thought it was a demo... after a little research I found all I had to do was restart Steam, but I still don't think it should happen).

The upside? The price... ten bucks provides hours of fun riding along all your music, competing for high scores, and a complete copy of the Orange Box soundtrack to boot. Would I recommend it? Hell yes.

It does sound good.

I read an interview with the guy who made it and it was the top selling game on Steam during the launch month (i.e. it outsold orange box and call of duty 4). He wouldn't say how much money he'd made, but admitted it was a lot and was very happy. I'm jealous Embarassed
