Critic Reviews for Superbeat: XONiC
A fiercely difficult but engrossing experience, Superbeat: Xonic has a sense of musical euphoria that can only be experienced in a quality rhythm game. While it might take some time to acclimate to the gameplay, you're in for a treat. Pick this up if you're a rhythm game fan: you won't regret it.
While lacking the portable aspects of the original, the ability to plug in some expensive headphones or utilise a home theater system is a mandatory experience if you've only played the Vita version, as the astonishingly high quality of the music and visuals deserve to be played in the biggest way possible.
With a club-ready soundtrack and brilliant rhythm gameplay, Superbeat: Xonic is an excellent addition to the Switch's growing music game hit parade. It's stylish, fun, and challenging in all the right ways, and does a great job easing players into its frenetic charts with forgiving timing and balanced progression. Some frustrating touch-control issues mean that VOEZ or Deemo are better bets for touchscreen tunes, but if you're onboard with button-based beats, Xonic is a super choice.
If you're looking for a solid arcade action rhythm game, you could certainly do worse than SUPERBEAT: XONiC. Not only can you manage the difficulty to your personal play style, it's sensory overload will get your heart pumping like you were on your feet. This is a compliment: It's like Bop It on acid.
SUPERBEAT: XONiC on Nintendo Switch is a solid rhythm game that fans of the genre should check out. The over 65 songs included with the main release, as well as the many more that will see a release as DLC, will keep you busy for a while with its varied mix and match of genres that, when taken as a whole, feel right for this release you can dance to as you play at home or on the go.
