PCG: Audiosurf

Sorry, it's a bit of a deluge of PC Gamer today, as they've just thrown a mega-ton of last-issue content up onto their site. Think of it as like visiting relatives on the other side of the country.

On my part, there's my Audiosurf review, replete with entirely gratuitous Vonnegut quotation. It's a significantly more upbeat take on the game than the RPS verdict (more Verdicts soon, promise), which arguably got a little sidetracked onto picking holes in the game - probably because by that point we'd already fired our happier hyperbole at each other at some length. And also because my own interest in Audiosurf tends towards the blissful edification of my ears and eyes, rather than trying to perfect the match-3 element. It's not often that I stay with a game for a significant time after the review's filed, but my most intense Audiosurf playing came in the fortnight following my word-fart. I suspect I'll be voting it slightly higher in the year-end polls than most folks.

Oddly, the review's also online, and has been for a good couple of weeks now, at PCG's sister site Gamesradar, who for reasons of their own chose to increase the score, coldly remove all the Kate Bush references and add a new verdict-box-thingy and strapline. Which, bitter-sweetly, is the line of the review currently used to promote the game on Steam. That 'free' in 'freelancer' has always been faintly ironic. BUT THIS IS THE LIFE WE CHOSE.
