Voez is a diamond in the rough, at least as far as the Nintendo Switch eShop is concerned. The system's launch went from zero (or just Zelda) to hero in seconds flat, and as long as you're okay with a lack of a TV mode, Voez is a worthy pickup.

VOEZ is a beautiful rhythm game with a generous supply of songs and gorgeous artwork that makes you want to keep going back for more. The rhythm gameplay feels accurate and fits the songs nicely for the most part, particularly in harder difficulties, with a nicely designed learning curve to allow players to get into the swing of things.The soundtrack can start to feel quite repetitive at times, with a number of songs blending together to create what feels like filler content, and the quality of sound could be a little better with some songs sounding quite compressed, but overall this doesn't dampen the enjoyment of the game too heavily. Overall, VOEZ is a very good entry to the rhythm genre and one to consider for portable, tap-along loveliness.

No matter what it says about the potential usage for the Switch's touchscreen this is a beautifully presented and enjoyably novel rhythm action game.

Being a rhythm game that makes full use of the Nintendo Switch touchscreen, Voez will push the players into achieving lightning-fast reflections in order to clear all the songs in the fastest tempos. While fans of rhythm and music games will find this enticing, other players will start noticing a feeling of repetitiveness and a certain lack of an ergonomic capacity to accommodate long gaming sessions which may stand in the way of enjoying Voez more thoroughly.

With Voez, the choreography of the icons leaves you feeling like you're playing an instrument and are involved in the performance of the music itself, and that is incredibly immersive and engaging. As I said at the start; this is the Nintendo's secret weapon, because this is one very special game, and exclusive to the console (at least, in its microtransactions-free state), and it's absolutely essential.

As music rhythm games go, VOEZ is one of the best I’ve ever played, up there with the likes of Parappa The Rapper, Hatsune Miku Project DIVA X and Gitaroo Man.

Whilst not a lot happens on-screen during tracks, the presentation is still lovely and vibrant, with colours and panels changing and shifting in time with the great range of music on offer. Although VOEZ doesn't really lend itself well to long periods of play, many of the tracks are short enough that it can be played in quick bursts now and then, perhaps unlocking the generic light-hearted visual novel in the process. Comfort is a point of contention, but the concept is so incredibly simple and appealing that just about anybody will be able to pick up and enjoy tapping away to these beats. A welcome addition to the genre and the Switch library.

Apart from a few flaws, VOEZ is a solid rhythm game with pretty graphics, well thought out gampelay content and a huge selection of songs. Easily one of the Switch launch's hidden gems, if you like rhythm games.

It’s gone under the radar a bit, but VOEZ’s place on the Switch launch line-up is highly deserved and you should give it your attention.

It´s beautiful minimalistic design, more than 100 playable songs and an interesting story mode makes VOEZ a great music game. Nevertheless Switch version isn´t playable in TV or tabletop modes, which makes no difference compared to iOS or Android release.
