The two developers from Mad Fellows have a lovely quote on their website: Purveyors of the finest video games. It totally fits them, Aaero is a fantastic genre-defining game with a wonderful licensed soundtrack. I wish I could demand Xbox gamers to buy it, each and every gamer should play Aaero. Oh… and Mad Fellows, prepare for a lot of I want Aaero 2 requests!
It's only through a combination of rich, collaborative, and altogether interactive elements that something like this can be born, a piece of software that shirks tedious story and plodding industry conventions in favor of pummeling sound and pure, unadulterated gameplay. In that regard, Aaero is exclusively, utterly, and unapologetically 'video game'.
Aaero is an amazing experience with one of the best soundtracks I ever had the joy to listen to. It's genuinely fun to play and the songs will stick with me for weeks to come. It's a brilliant work of audio-visual art and my only complaint is there aren't more tracks to enjoy. If I ever see DLC for it, it'll be a snap purchase! Because as Flux Pavilion would say it: "I can't Stop"
Few games have combined rail shooting with rhythm game mechanics and yet Aaero showcases just how well they fit together with a combination of tight controls and excellent music.
You can’t beat the pure joy and adrenaline rush of hurtling down a tunnel, evading obstacles and trying to stick to the ribbon to be as accurate as possible, that Aaero brings. The unique blend of on-rail rhythm mechanics with action-shooter combat all complimented with a truly terrific soundtrack, really helps draw you in to playing Aaero’s gorgeous levels and breathes new life into a genre that has somehow disappeared over recent years.
One of the most visually and auditorily exciting games I have ever played, Aaero provides such an exciting sensory experience that I would recommend it to everyone, despite occasional frustrations and hiccups along the way.
There's a learning curve for this game due to how it handles its rhythm sections, but once you get the hang of things, you'll be in the zone and hitting 80%+ accuracy with no problem. So if you're looking for a fun rhythm game with solid gameplay mechanics, you should definitely add Aeero to your PS4 collection.
Aaero is a love letter to fans of classics like Panzer Dragoon, as well as more recent obscure entries like Rez. It’s a relentless excursion into electronic dance music, fusing dubstep and drum ‘n’ bass with demanding-yet-addictive gameplay.
Aaero is a new beginning for rhythm action games, as it draws on the genre’s past strengths and makes them its own. It has a different outlook – completionists may balk at the improbability of a ‘perfect’ run – but equally that could make it all the more alluring to those looking for a true score attack experience that doesn’t give up its wares so easily. Aaero’s setting may be apocalyptic, but its outlook is full of hope for a genre that still deserves its place in the here and now.
If you love rhythm games and bass heavy music, this is one you’re going to want to check out. The levels are gorgeous, and the gameplay is straightforward, but challenging especially towards the end.
Aaero is an on-rails shooter mixed with a rhythm game, and the combination works very well. It offers multiple levels of difficulty and a no-fail mode to ensure everyone can play. With a stylized neon world, boss fights, and some good replayability, I would recommend this to anyone looking for their next rhythm game fix.
Aaero is a competent rhythm game that borrows some elements from other genre greats. It stumbles on its strange design choices a few too many times, but hopefully some improvements can be made in the future
Aaero is a unique beast that will appeal to arcade aficionados the world over. Its loose and unforgiving control scheme takes some getting used to, but those who are able to move to the groove will find a worthwhile experience that offers an experience all its own.
By trying to diversify the experience that Aaero delivers, Mad Fellows has created a game that's certainly different, but often feels like a game of two parts, and unfortunately one of those isn't that impressive at all.
Aaero is an interesting experiment at mixing rail shooting with rail movement and has a nice, eclectic soundtrack, but the end result is too chaotic to be very enjoyable unless you want a challenge that's more frustrating than rewarding.
