  1. But most of all, Aaaaa! scores on style. From the made-up lingo to the flirty backtalk and insider gags, it plays like an underground skating or Parkour flick—but one that’s made for an imaginary sport instead of a real one.
  2. Aaaaa! is a must for any self-respecting armchair thrill-junkie and one of the best indie games of the year.

    An out in left field gem, it's a blast to play, and its odd side experiences and thrilling levels will bring back a feeling of pure fun that games use to be about.
  4. A great indie game that personifies what indie games are all about. Pick it up if you want a fresh experience in your gaming.
  5. Let's face it, Base Jumping is out of the comfort zones for most of us, but Aaaaa! presents a thrill-inducing, skill-testing rush of a game that everyone should try.
  6. AaaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA!!! -- A Reckless Disregard for Gravity's is a game reliant on skill. You'll either have a blast, whooping with delight as you skim buildings and gesture rudely at people, or be majorly fed up, roaring with anger at the constant flurry of failures: it all depends on how lucky you are.
  7. For those who are seeking a simple, addictive arcade-game with some adrenaline rushes, self-mockery and originality, look no further than this game. Unless you hate the letter "A".
  8. A cortisol-inducing, insane trip into almost certain death. You'll love it. [Issue#26, p.57]
  9. Never taking itself completely seriously despite the seriously challenging gameplay at times, Aaaaa! is a great indie game that goes outside the mainstream gaming genre, possessing a “now for something completely different” attitude with matching Monty Python-esque humor.
  10. A Reckless Disregard for Gravity - AaaaAAaaaAAAaaAAAAaAAAAA… very fun, old style score attack game, for a small price!
  11. Apart from food, clothing, bills, medical care, transportation, art supplies, or a donation to a cause of your choice, I can't think of a much better way to spend $15 this month.
  12. Original, fun and funny. A demanding, adrenal pleasure that's a few critical tweaks short of true brilliance. [Dec 2009, p.104]
  13. If you are not afraid of losing a hand or leg just jump in and enjoy a free fall to its bitter end. Or use a parachute… an appetite for black humor required. [Issue#187]
  14. A celebration of speed and movement. [Jan 2010, p.86]

    I was honestly just happy to run out of points so I couldn't buy any more cubes. At that point I decided that it wasn't worth it to go back and try to get better scores on the previous cubes. Just one more game that was trying to get knocked of my steam list. Full Review »

    Nicely presented, fun for about 15 minutes. Very repetitive indeed. I can't help feeling that this game gets high scores for being 'trendy'; the engine's reminiscent of the type of thing that was cutting edge back when PCs first got 3D accelerator cards. Full Review »
