Rhythm Destruction reviews and comments

Rhythm Destruction is an interesting Mix of Rhythm and Shoot ' em up. However, it has to be said that it is more a Rhythm game than a Shoot ' em up. So anyone Looking for a Shoot ' em up is, in my Opinion, misadvised with this Game. For Rhythem Fans, this is a small Change from the normal Rhythem Games. A nice Feature from the Game is the Challenge Mode As well as a Leaderboard. My personal Appeal in continuing to play the Game is to break my Friends ' high Scores, as well as to keep getting up the World list. Currently there are 1 Dilc for 99 Cents to play more Level/Songs, which I find a bit of a shame. One can only hope that from time to time an Update with new Songs comes without always having to buy a DLC.

I am a big fan of music, Meloman, in love with the magic of music. What did I expect from the game? Of Course, the possibilities relax under the chic music, simultaneously knocking down the ships! Did I Get this? No. There is no relaxation and speech, you either listen to the track, or do not fall under the shelling and the third is not given. You want music-not pass the level, you want the level-is not up to music. Not to mention that no binding music to the time of pressing the speech buttons does not go in principle-the game from and to completely ignores the rhythm of the soundtrack, although the description claims to the contrary. But The most vocal disappointment is certainly the music. I'Ll be honest-I'm hooked on a great track in a trailer. And That's what I was waiting for. But! In the game about the cosmic beating-suddenly K-pop, stage and in general something unsensible, not to mention that "purchase of the soundtrack"-it's just access to three tracks on the online player. WHAT THE HELL, GENTLEMEN?! The Conclusion is solid disappointment. No Music, no gameplay, no relaxation. In the Trash.

-Get in the Bundle-It's not a classic Shoot! In the Beginning, I was skeptical ... I was able to run it clear that the Idea is daring and does not please everyone, therefore also the different Evaluations. So first of all the Soundtrack is very good. Graphic also perfectly ok. Only now we come to the daring Idea: It's not a classic Shoot, so you don't automatically or even with a Button shoot down the Enemies. The Developers had another Idea here: Move with WASD and shoot with the Arrow Keys or XBOX Buttons, i.e. it is always displayed different XBOX Buttons in an Opponent. It is Only when you press These Displayed buttons that you can kill the Enemy. Even double Buttons are coming. And that's exactly what leads to the divided Opinions because it's not a classic Shoot. But when you've got something in, the Game is Fun. Even if the Enthusiasm isn't World-class And it's not forever fun. But Shoot And up Fans certainly find Enthusiasm here. -Play the Game with an Xbox Controller. This makes the Game easier. Of course, the Keyboard goes, only you have to get smart beforehand, where X * B Y is at the top of the Controller, etc. Then you have to compare it with the Arrow keys and remember it. -Unfortunately, there is no Rating between positive and negative, because I cannot decide whether well or Fail. But at the end of the time I had to make up my mind:)
