Cadence of Hyrule: Crypt of the NecroDancer Featuring The Legend of Zelda Review

Cadence of Hyrule is a miracle project, birthed from an indie developer given the keys to Hyrule Castle and surpassing everyone’s expectations. Brace Yourself Games has managed to compose its own worthy Zelda adventure, incorporating its own rhythmic roguelike gameplay with fantastic remixes.

Beat Saber Review

Beat Saber comes at the end of a really important year for the PSVR, with games like Tetris Effect, Moss, and Astro Bot Rescue Mission giving renewed life to the two-year old device. These games — but especially Beat Saber — are the best evidence for VR being more than a promising but ultimately niche technology.

Despite how short the game is, it maybe emphasizes why the other games use this idea to break it up - the concept never really evolves or grows in any way, and with the platforming so basic, there's really not much else here to dig into. It winds up being a rhythm game with disposable musical elements, a platformer with uninteresting mechanics.

Inside My Radio

Inside My Radio is a brief, interesting romp that never lives up to the potential it enters with. The first few levels will leave you feeling excited to see what’s next but there really isn’t much to see. The cards are on the table after level two and there aren’t any surprises to be had after that. For a game that looks and sounds so fresh and interesting, Inside My Radio was a disappointing experience that left me feeling unsatisfied and underwhelmed.

Beat Blasters III

Beat Blasters III boasts 16 levels that range from "decent" to "really good". Outside of upgrades to your blaster, the game introduces no new game mechanics after the tutorial. That it can stay entertaining as long as it does with its three simple powers says volumes about how thoughtfully the game was designed. It probably isn’t fair to classify Beat Blasters III as a “music game”, but rather a quality action game that thrives on music. If this sounds like something that you would like to experience, then you owe it to yourself to give it a try.
