    Addictive gameplay, great soundtrack and spot-on minimalistic visuals – there is a lot to like about Aaero. [07/2017, p.70]

    For all its mechanical innovations, however, Aaero can't consistently match the synasthetic joy of its biggest influence. [April 2017, p.119]

    While Aaero’s challenge is enticing to tackle, the unfortunate string of performance and gameplay issues add detriment to the overall package. Outside of its confined choice of soundtrack and noticeably similar level design from beginning to end, enjoyable as it may be to rack up as high a score as possible and even push one’s self to higher difficulty modes thereafter, Aaero doesn’t quite demonstrate the same degree of intrigue or immediacy that past and even fellow contemporary efforts within this genre have so clearly shown. A few interesting mechanics here and there, the majority of the game’s run-time is spent retreading the same loop — perhaps worrying more so on when the next game-breaking hiccup will pop up next.

    Getting into the rhythm
    Aaero is a rhythm based twin stick shooter game... sortve
    Here you only use the two joy sticks to trace the lines of the song , and the right joy stick to lock onto enemies and the trigger to fire..
    that’s it as this game takes you on a journey through 18 different tracks, chasing scores and stars to unlock the next,,,
    though is star and score chasing isn’t for you, there is a chill mode with all tracks already unlock for you…
    At first Aaero is a bit of a thrill...
    its so addicting tracing along to the beat of this electro music, blasting enemies when they would pop up…
    even more so when bosses would pop up and youre trying to take them out while making sure youre not hit by other enemies or run into obstacles as youre only allowed 3 hits before you fail a track…
    I was in love with this game…
    Sadly though it just doesn’t do enough during its around 3 hour campaign to keep my interest
    There were only a handful of songs i enjoyed tracing along to.. Which is a preference thing, I get that…
    But level design is just too samey… its no thumper where things are constantly changing up and feeling different..
    you don’t feel like much cool is being done around you aside from the boss battles which is a disappointment…
    and for that reason its hard to be drawn in.. its hard for the game to keep your attention when it just starts to feel like more of the same despite the game getting more challenging is it goes on…
    however the challenge comes in the enemies and not necessarily the song… which I feel is a mistake… slowly aaero becomes more about shooting and surviving and less about going along to the rhythm of the song playing in the background…
    Aaero is still super enjoyable at times..
    it made me smile plenty throughout my journey of unlocking the next difficulty..
    It’s just that by time I got to the end of the campaign I wasn’t really interested in playing through again
    I give Aaero
    a 6.5/10
