KickBeat - Special Edition Launch Trailer | PS4
KickBeat: Special Edition is a solid enough game, but it never does anything beyond its initial concept to make it feel unique. Decent presentation and a comical plot help to balance out boring gameplay and a disappointing soundtrack, culminating in a release that neither looks good nor bad on the dancefloor.
While Kickbeat is sound and technically works very well, and while the song selection can be questionable, there are a few standouts. Unfortunately, there's just not enough here to keep many people playing after doing the full story once unless you're looking for a big challenge. For a single play through of the story, it's alright, but for lasting appeal, it really doesn't have it.
