    The gameplay is very simple, but I got hooked on it, mainly because of a great soundtrack. [03/2014, p.69]

    Kickbeat is a simple rhythm game enriched with martial arts. The result is an intuitive, maybe too simple and poor but very challenging game.

    While the intriguing fighting game veneer manages to frame the gameplay in a clever way, the mechanics never actually evolve beyond the standard "hit this button at this time" formula.

    The setting aside KickBeat is as conventional as a rhythm game as the songwriting of Jon Bon Jovi. You know what you get but don’t expect any surprises.

    KickBeat isn't going to revolutionise the rhythm-action genre, but it nonetheless provides another perfectly solid, perfectly enjoyable opportunity to get into the flow of your music and have some rhythmic fun.

    Kickbeat could be more. The potential is there, but it seems that Zen Studios was not willing to risk much with a new title like this.

    KickBeat isn’t a bad game. KickBeat also isn’t a great game. It’s just okay.
