After being labelled "defective" after an experiment unexpectedly fuses his personal music player to his heart, Chai must fight to get free of both the label and the corporation that did this to him. With your crew of companions, you explore the world and take on battles. It's a familiar challenge, here though everything moves to the beat - not only attacks but the movement of platforms and enemies.
As you progress you get to know the city and take on the corporate armies with your rhythm-amplified combat. It's like other rhythm action games, only here you are landing hits rather than dance moves. You don't have to stick to the beat but when you do you chain more powerful attacks.
The result is a vibrant euphoric brawling challenge that manages to put music at the heart of every interaction and movement. Add to this music from Nine Inch Nails, The Prodigy and The Joy Formidable and it starts to really stand out as a novel idea well executed with high production values.
9+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. Still, it's important for parents and guardians to consider the maturity required to process the game content. The combination of movement and timing requires younger players to cope with these things at the same time. There's also a lot of information to process on the bright and busy screen. The difficulty settings enable younger players to play this.
