Critic Reviews for Invector: Rhythm Galaxy

Rhythm Galaxy is a very good rhythm game, but it's also very safe and very familiar, doing little to freshen up the formula.

If you're wanting to expand your musical tastes or play some more of Invector: Rhythm Galaxy, I recommend that you get at least one of its song packs. The Spinnin' pack is more for EDM folks, whereas Latin Power contains great choices for those interested in reggaeton/Latin pop music. I'm a smidge disappointed that the packs only contain music and not much else, but hey – the tracks themselves are excellent candidates for a rhythm game and will assuredly join your "on repeat" playlist this holiday season.

When evaluating a rhythm game, I take into account its complexity, soundtrack/tracklist, and replayability. Invector: Rhythm Galaxy's gameplay ever-so-slightly improves an already good gameplay loop for a rhythm title thanks to how well it blends rhythm beats with cruising through stellar futuristic landscapes. Its difficulty spikes inconsistently, needing some mild curation in onboarding players. Its tracklist that's comprised of licensed music is fantastic, on the other hand, and should appeal to fans from multiple audiences. Is it replayable? Yes, but some may feel pressured by its arbitrary completion requirements in its campaign. Taken together, it's a great entry in the genre, and hopefully Hello There Games continues to refine the series and cement its place as a modern rhythm series of must-play proportions.

Overall, it's a visually striking game and I was quite mesmerized by the world you get to play in. Because the story really didn't grab me I wasn't super fussed about the disparity in the music options and instead took it as a chance to enjoy some tracks I am familiar with along with possibly finding some new artists to do a deep dive into later (which may be somewhat the intent of the variety on offer). If you like rhythm games and don't mind a broad range of songs then you may just enjoy jumping in your ship and boosting your way around the neon tracks of Invector: Rhythm Galaxy.

Invector: Rhythm Galaxy squanders the rare advantage of an officially licensed soundtrack with some strange design choices and unbalanced difficulty that may repel newcomers, while being far too similar to its predecessor to attract returning fans.

Invector: Rhythm Galaxy combines rhythm and visual in an excellent musical journey. Controlling the ship according to the beat is enticing, especially due to the constant style changes in the stages. Beyond that, the atmosphere is impressive with colorful and bright scenery that pulsates along with the eclectic soundtrack. Some elements could have been more polished, like the difficulty curve and the visual chaos, and there are few new features when comparing it to the previous title. Compelling and offering a good challenge, Invector: Rhythm Galaxy is a harmonious experience recommended for fans of the genre.

The Invector series may have started as a tribute to a specific artist who had actually been part of its development, but I cannot deny that Invector: Rhythm Galaxy is the perfect follow-up for these games (as controversial as the idea for an Avicii-less sequel may sound), as well as the obvious next step for the franchise. It’s easily one of the best rhythm games released in recent memory, combining a fun and intuitive gameplay loop with an expertly curated setlist.

Invector: Rhythm Galaxy has trouble figuring out its licensed soundtrack, and the combination of returning and brand new issues leaves the series in a difficult position moving forward.
