Filippo Dinolfo of Gamer 2.0 writes: "The PC gaming scene is largely dominated by a bevy of First-Person-Shooters, Real-Time-Strategy, and Sims games. So when a game comes along that has absolutely none of these elements one needs to stop and take a look at it. AudioSurf is just that sort of game. It combines elements from a racing game, elements from old-school puzzlers like Klax, and then attempts to show off its own unique party piece by generating every level based on the song you choose. While a few games in the past have tried this dynamic generation of levels, it's not something that has been overdone. More to the point, even fewer have done it well."
