Game Information

Available on:Nintendo SwitchQ3 2017

Developer: Harmonix Music Systems

Genres: Music, Sports

Aliens from a musical dimension descend upon our planet and it becomes apparent that they’ve clung on desperately to one specific fixture of humanity…Earth sports. Without any guidance, they adopt our propensity for athletics and attempt to recreate the very sporting events we hold dear.


Desperate to test out their new games, they recruit one of Earth’s finest to compete in their 5 sporting competitions. Skilled in the world of both sports and music, Lil Slugger is more than up for the challenge.


Join team earthling and show these aliens how it’s done. Help Slugger navigate her way through the musical pentathlon of alien sports. Take on your opponents yourself or recruit friends and family to help represent.

But this isn't the mainstream must-play like Harmonix has had in its history. Heck, it isn't even a must-play for people who like quirky little rhythm games, because others have done it better in the past.

While not offering too much from the Apple TV entry, Super Beat Sports is a serviceable rhythm party game. Its simple controls and infectious soundtrack will have you tapping your toes, but a couple of games in the collection might be a bit disappointing to play with friends.

Super Beat Sports casts the player into a world ruled over by inhuman alien lifeforms, obsessed with physical, brutal gladiatorial events under the oppressive droning of a harsh synthetic rhythm, without any explanation of why or how things have come to be this way. Aside from all that though, actually it's really rather cute, the games are fun for newcomers or veterans alike, and the local multiplayer options are top-notch. While score-chasers will find plenty of medals to earn for perfect performances, casual play will end up being pretty repetitious, especially with the lengthy load times. Because of this, even though it's broken up into bite-sized chunks it isn't always an ideal single player experience. We'd still recommend it however, especially at a budget price, so if you're looking for a fun party game to try out then assemble your crew and go whack some spaceballs!
