Released at the beginning of the year, Tango Gameworks and Bethesda Softworks combine the rhythm genre with the world of hack-and-slash titles in Hi-Fi RUSH.
Players will follow the story of wannabe rocker Chai as they take on Vandelay Industries in a world filled with sweet, sweet tunes. However, players must attack to the beat, leading to parrying, fighting, and action that encourages a keen ear. Of course, the game’s a stylish one too, featuring timeless cel-shaded graphics filled with plenty of charm.
Hi-Fi Rush is a stone-cold stunner, one with gameplay in lockstep with the beat. While finding one’s groove takes some getting used to, those with a keen ear will be in tune in no time flat.Hi-Fi RUSH Review, Casey Scheld
