I’ve been a fan of rhythm games ever since I picked up Frequency on the PlayStation 2 several years ago. There’s just something I really enjoy about the play-along while grooving to the music, and it’s an experience not like much anything else in gaming when it’s done right. KickBeat brings an interesting twist to the genre, transforming the simple ‘push these buttons’ mechanics into a kung-fu action game, pitting the player against droves of enemies attacking in typical action-film fashion. Tasking you with taking foes down one or two at a time, all in the rhythm of the tunes, KickBeat freshens up a quirky genre; but does it do it well?
