The ribbon of road ahead bucks and snarls, blocks and spikes cascading towards me, pulsing and bristling with internal energy. I do my best to capture the former and avoid the latter, diving between the track’s three lanes as needed. I’m dialled in to the action, head nodding to the music as I struggle to keep up with the flow, which becomes more challenging after the song crescendos and dynamically generated hell breaks loose in response. This is Audiosurf 2 at its best – a hypnotic rhythm-action game powered by songs from your PC or Soundcloud. Like the original, however, the ‘at its best’ part is confined to a few modes; the rest of them, sadly, are more miss than hit.
