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 even more tracks to enjoy.
Aaero is a small and simple game but it sure packs a punch. With stunning visuals, responsive buttons, and remarkable EDM tunes, Aaero truly delivers a fantastic experience that incorporates music with rail-shooting action.
It takes a little while for Aaero's mechanics and its combo system to click, but once they do there are fewer better rhythm games out there. Its fantastic soundtrack exudes cool from every pore, and the way it integrates with gameplay (while running beautifully smoothly while docked) makes it one of the most immersive experiences you'll find on the Switch.
Only in one song did I have trouble separating obstacles from the background, and after a couple attempts things clicked. As I've said you're mileage with the music will vary but it fits the visual design very well, and the whole thing feels very polished. Whether you never left the rhythm genre or are looking for a way back in, Aaero is a thrilling title that's likely even better if you enjoy the music.
