    Fans of twin stick shooters and music games should give Beat Hazard Ultra a try. The controls are sublime, and the visual/audio experience is one of a kind.

    Even with the small flaws, we cannot recommend Beat Hazard Ultra enough, unless you either hate shooters or have issues with bright flashing lights (or both). It is a unique experience with nearly limitless potential, and we just can't get enough.

    It's a heck of a game, gorgeous, challenging and long-lived in turn. I've hardly been able to put it down, and listening to music without the game just doesn't feel as cool right now.

    Beat Hazard Ultra is a great game and is a steal for 99 cents. There are a few minor issues, but the many positive aspects of the game overshadow them. Music lovers and arcade junkies will all find something to love about it.

    Beat Hazard Ultra is a very nice twin analog shooter, packed with spectacular light effects and a solid gameplay.

    A game whose major selling point isn't actually that important, Beat Hazard Ultra has a strong enough shooting mechanic to avoid any accusations of being a gimmick.

    Shooter game with bright lights, where your music tracks generate your levels. Every music track you play is unique without being random, you can choose your difficulty and push your limits and there is a variety of modes depending on your mood. If it looks kinda interesting to you at first sight, play it, as it will pleasantly surprise you being loads more fun than you expected. What more can you ask than shooting lasers to the rhythm of your favorite music after all? Expand
