Hi-Fi Rush is a stylish, loud and messy first album full of potential
Tango Gameworks' Hi-Fi Rush is considered one of the best Xbox releases of this generation.

Hi-Fi Rush is oozing with style and confidence, but like a messy first album, there are some deep cut tracks that don’t hit as hard as the opening few hits. What can’t be denied, however, is how excited we are for the sophomore effort, and the seemingly limitless versatility that Tango Gameworks have shown off in this bold, out-of-nowhere joy.

  • Incredible style
  • Deep, rewarding rhythm action
  • Character design is varied and flamboyant
  • Level design is uninspiring
  • Clunky platforming
