Neon Drive is one of the best music rhythm games on the PS4 because it does the unexpected.
Not to sound overly negative, it has to be said that Neon Drive is a title with a lot of promise, but unfortunately one which has been extinguished with the use of questionable design choices, and unnecessary force-fed variety. In-fact, Neon Drive is a lot like the new-wave/punk rock Scottish band The Rezillos. It’s loud, vibrant, and colourful, but only a very small portion of it holds any substance. And many will realise that such is the fact in an instant, and will forget about Neon Drive, just like the world has forgotten about The Rezillos. But just like the band, Neon Drive may come back one day, during a sale, and will sell out its content for pennies to the masses who will only pick it up, simply because it is cheap.
Neon drive is a game that can easily get you hooked.
From a presentation’s standpoint, Neon Drive checks all the right boxes. The neon visual design is absolutely gorgeous and is accompanied by a stellar soundtrack. Sadly, the core gameplay is frustrating and isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Neon Drive is certainly an example of style over substance.
Neon Drive is a rhythm game extremely hard with a cyberpunk atmosphere. There are only 8 stages, but all varied and with unique challenges. The higher difficulty levels will make you throw the controller away, as well as the Endurance mode. It is not a game for everyone.

Boring small game without much content. Great design and music isn't enough to make up for bland gameplay from mobile devices.
