Review: Avicii Invector is a rhythm action gem

A game with the charm to turn indifferent gamers into Avicii admirers

There’s very little in Invector that you haven’t seen before, but that doesn’t mean any of its elements are unwelcome. Instead, Hello There Games has cherry-picked the more enjoyable elements from a number of different music games and brought them all together for a game that may consist of second-hand ideas but will have you up all night with that elusive ‘one more song’ feeling regardless.

  • Tight rhythm action gameplay with well-designed note patterns
  • Makes great use of Avicii’s music
  • Striking art style and visual effects
  • A quarter of profits go towards mental health awareness
  • Occasional cutscenes are terrible
4 / 5
Version tested
Xbox One
