    The gameplay remains the same, but the graphics have been upgraded to 1080p at 60 frames-per-second. But with the painful omission of custom soundtracks, there is little incentive to re-visit the game once you’ve completed it, and even less after you collect all the stars in the campaign (which will be quite a challenge nonetheless).

    KickBeat - Special Edition is a different offer, which aims for music lover gamers. It's an enjoyable game, although it lacks variety in its gameplay, so it will only enjoyable for a few hours. A few incredible hours.

    Great concept done too often without any significant additions or improvements when compared to the previous iteration.

    Only recommended for the merely curious who cannot resist a game of music and rhythm.

    Despite highlighting and isolating my complete lack of coordination, I had a lot of fun with the simple, solid and rewarding fundamental gameplay that KickBeat is, ultimately, all about.

    Not a lot of content and it is quite repetitive, but Kickbeat is a nice, challenging rhythm-game that does not cost a lot of money. Be afraid, because the controls must be spot on to succeed in Kickbeat.

    Stick to your old copies of Rock Band and Guitar Hero and get your fighting game needs met with an actual fighting game.

    zen studios is famous about pinball games. i have nothing about the makers of this game but this game is a f***ing joke to all gamers of allzen studios is famous about pinball games. i have nothing about the makers of this game but this game is a f***ing joke to all gamers of all ages. first of all this music... horrible,every stage is one song. every song is around 3or4 minutes and you think is 10 painful minutes. so, this type of games played like "you hear the beat or melody rhythm and you tap the buttons" but in this game noooo the timing is freaking wrong. parappa the rapper was a 1997 game ,almost 20 years back, an still is way better than this. i can continued and say about the sorry or the "kung fu trance guy" who beats soldiers inspired but hardcore music but i know im going to far.
