Hi-Fi Rush Video Review by Noisy Pixel - photo 1


I'm not about to bury any leads here Hi-Fi Rush sold me faster than any game I've played in years Tango game works and its figurehead Shinji makami it dropped Jaws to the floor during the Xbox presentation at which this game debuted only hours before it released after a decade of almost exclusively making horror titles this brightly colored rock and roll action platformer flashed me and many others back to the days of clover Studio his previous team while makami is only listed as a producer on this title Hi-Fi Rush immediately evokes the games of his past and I mean that in the best way imaginable is it yep profession rock star future Rockstar

Hi-Fi Rush is a rhythm action game where the entire world immerses you in the beat of the background music this concept has been tried before but never as successfully as here the environment around you bounces in time your character walks in Rhythm to the beat and even moving platforms will shift in four or four times you play as chai a young man whose broken arm is being replaced with a mechanical part to continue functioning properly in society I want to put a pin in that point and come back to it later but chai's MP3 player ends up falling on him during the upgrade process and gets fully integrated into his body causing him to see the world around him responding to the Rhythm playing in his head but as the MP3 player is a non-standard part this makes him a defect that goes against the perfect record of the manufacturing facility causing the entire company and seemingly all of society to turn against him as him getting out will publicly ruin their record robots attack

and his arm can suddenly pull together the discarded mechanical components around him to create a guitar-shaped weapon to fight back to the beat all he can hear the rhythm-based combat took me a few skirmishes to truly get used to but I quickly found myself looking eagerly forward to the subsequent encounters the first level contains a delightful number of references to the Iron Giant from the way chai's weapon comes together to a robot sunbathing off the beaten path all the way to the final boss of the stage bearing a heavy resemblance to the Giant's weapon form the art style looks to be inspired by a mix of older 90s movies and older Clover Studios titles notably Beautiful Joe the combat feels like a delightful combination of Crypt of the necrodancer and Devil May Cry 5 an observation I saw many times in the days after release yet I think I enjoyed this title even more striking enemies to the beat of the background track gives combat a very satisfying amount of weight especially as the game progresses and adds more complexity to its encounters once you learn how to Parry enemy attacks every fight can send you into a flow state of unleashing combos dodging and Rhythm and blocking attacks to stagger foes all of this is incentivized through a scoring system in each fight switching up your combos frequently and not taking hits will build up a multiplayer meter and and you're also measured by how long you took to complete the encounter and how unbeat you were able to stay as you did so smashing robots and exploring the environment rewards chai with gears a currency much like The Souls of Devil May Cry which he can use during and between levels

to unlock new moves and passive power-ups awarding aspects like extra slots for special moves and additional Health Chucks the moment that really made me fall in love that I mentioned earlier came at the end of level 1 as the first boss fight began as I mentioned you're up against a massive robot in what would typically be a pretty standard challenging fight that tests what you learned in the first level however the title ingeniously tells you when it's changing musical tracks and many of the bosses are scored by real life acts licensed for Hi-Fi rush so chai gets trapped in the defect check and meets rekka the head of the production facility and the screen announces the beginning of 1 million by Nine Inch Nails a rock song with a heavy Groove rekka introduces you to the Checker a massive robot whose head alone is bigger than chai's body and as the fight Begins the power of that Groove only makes the combat hit hard harder every hit starts to feel like a home run Hammer every hit starts to feel like a home run Hannah just because of how flawlessly the music is integrated into every part of the game all of this would be more than enough on its own to deliver a memorable experience but what puts Hi-Fi rush over the edge into a probably guaranteed spot in my top 5 of 2023 is that the story shows just as much intelligence while the main surface level plot is a fairly by the Numbers Affair the way the world is constructed shows just as much work going into the setting as the music taking down that pin from earlier the game starts with a guy with an injury being determined so

inconvenient to society that he's given a robotic arm just so he can keep doing his job of picking up trash unpacking that alone is enough to provide me with confidence in the rest of the plot but it keeps exploring that track as you see more of the world of Hi-Fi Rush the robotic dystopian world is perhaps not particularly deep but is both sharply biting and full of well-placed Comedy the game has a lot to say and its background is all of the workers you encounter are sentient robots they leave their logs lying around the environment which comedically go in on the nature of pointless busy work and the lack of safety in their work environment even with the jokes all of the detail paints a picture of a hyper capitalist dystopia where even the robots are being exploited for Dangerous wage slavery it's both impressive And Timely and only adds to a game that could have gotten away with an excuse plot fueled only by the Epic power of rock HiFi Rush is by every possible measure one of the biggest surprises of 2023. I've never seen a game that so successfully Blends rhythm in action and despite its platforming not being much to write home about the combat is so superb that it may even surpass all of its most apparent influences noisy pixel is giving Hi-Fi Rush a 9 out of 10. thanks for watching please read the full review at noisypixel.net noisy pixels run by a group of Gamers who work hard to bring you the latest news reviews previews podcasts and more join our community Discord server to talk nerdy with us and like subscribe and comment to keep up with our future content
