Another game I'm going to suck at.

Looks like great fun though and it's out NOW apparently. I don't know for sure, I'm in work :(

Seems like an odd idea to play a rhythm game blind folded.

Yeah but I can tell you now I probably wouldn't hit half of those even if I did it with my eyes open.

It's official Boom Boom Rocket is fucking superb. It looks good, some of the remixes are extremely good and even the achievements have funny names :D

Buy buy buy!

Might've considered this if it was at most half the price it is.

Otherwise.... nah.

If it was free I don't think I'd play it after experiencing the demo.

Looks like I like a game deemed shit by the majority!

boabg I like it too! But I know that I shouldn't. It's like when a movie is so bad that it's good.

Both the music and the game start off as fucking terrible but then they start to grow on you and you change your mind and it's suddenly strangely compulsive!

Yup. Would have liked a bigger track list, too.

DLC...

I spent a good couple of hours on it last night - I think I need to sort out my control method though, although I'm not doing too badly on it.

Yeah some of the mixes aren't that great but they don't get really irritating after long plays like some other rhythm games.

JimJam I found changing the markers from arrws to the button letters helped. I kept getting up and down mixed up regardless of colour.

Those of you that DONT like it, what is it you don't like about it? Have you given it a try on med/hard?

That's what I keep doing. I think you can use the d-pad too though, so I might change back to arrows and use the d-pad to do up & down and keep left & right on the buttons and see how that goes.

I think a few have played only the demo and it might have been a bit crap. I just went ahead and bought it so I don't know what tune(s) were included.

I like it, good fun. The wife was quick to join in,and kept playing for ages even though she says it makes her motion sick.

I think the bonus run meter could have done with being a little more like the Boost meter in Burnout 2, where it re-fills if you do really well so you can chain boosts together.

I've tried it on hard.

It was still shit.

If anyone wants a cheap 360 game that's fucking brilliant, save your pennies and buy EDF.
