No Straight Roads
Top Critic Average
An energy infused concoction of style, action, and music that will give you one heck of a musical hangover.
An engaging presentation and some cool ideas can't help elevate No Straight Road's hollow loop.
A wonderfully cheerful rhythm action game that channels the best of Jet Set Radio and Parappa the Rapper but still maintains its own distinctive style.
No Straight Roads asks you to fight back against inequality with the power of rock in an evocative musical experience.
No Straight Roads is a loveably scrappy indie action adventure where the villains and their multi-stage musical battles are the true stars you'll keep returning for.
No Straight Roads surprises with its insane yet attractive argument, its likeable protagonists and its eccentric bosses, in long and rich combtes. But it's too short, the difficulty is inconsistent and, in general terms, its gameplay is less solid than its presentation. A case of style over substance, even if it's worth it just for the music alone.

No Straight Roads needs to retire from touring, rest its vocal cords, and make a comeback tour when it's found itself as an artist. Right now, it can't carry a tune.
The musical dystopia of No Straight Roads is the way Metronomik uses to face the authoritarianisms as a whole. Themed bossfights and beautiful art style create a potentially explosive recipe, but the monotony of the enemies' attacks and the low quality of the platforming negatively affect the experience.

No Straight Roads is made with a lot of love, and the soundtrack is excellent. It's just a shame the gameplay isn't as tight as it could be.
No Straight Roads feels like a less good version of Sayonara Wild Hearts, and if you want a rhythm action game I can’t really recommend the former over the latter.
