Hi-Fi RUSH has arrived unexpectedly, the new game created by Tango Gameworks and distributed by Bethesda.
During the recent Xbox event, Xbox Developer Direct, which focused on showing the progress of several projects that had already been announced, and the last one that surprised everyone, an unannounced game, developed by Tango Gameworks and published by Bethesda de Action and Adventure, immediately kicks off in Announcement day.
Tango is best known for its horror games of the Evil Within franchise, which is quite different from Hi-Fi RUSH’s proposition, an adventure packed with comedic elements, a fact that ended up leaving many in awe of the game’s quality.
In the game’s campaign, we follow Chai, a 25-year-old who dreams of becoming a rock star, and for that he volunteers to be part of an experiment at the giant robotics company, Vandelay (yes, I spent calling the whole game Vandelay), during his journey, he discovers Chai That the company’s intentions are not the best, and he needs to ally with several people to be able to escape from the island where the company is located and destroy the plans of Kale, the current head of the company.
Perhaps the highlight of the game, the gameplay in Hi-Fi RUSH is something we cannot call innovative, since playing with rhythm has already been seen in games like Metal: Hesllsinger, the game Heavy Metal and Rhythm La Dome, or as In Rayman Legends, which contains stages in which you need to finish the level according to the rhythm of the music.
In this game, everything moves according to the rhythm, from a pumping piston to one of the cleaning robots, and the most important thing is to beat the rhythm, with elements very similar to the Devil May Cry battle, where the larger the group, the more points you get, It’s not enough just to hit, you have to hit the rhythm, for this you can buy combos by joining the scrap pieces that are everywhere during the stages, the bosses are always a show in your, you won’t get bored or feel that the game is repeating, each stage has its own own, or introduce a new type of enemy.
One of the factors that cannot be excluded from this analysis is the soundtrack, which I must say was amazing, the game starts with Lonely Boy from The Black Keys, and takes us on a surreal musical journey, the original songs are great and thoughtful. The gameplay as a whole, it is more part of the game than the gameplay itself.
Another incredible point is the dubbing, which was incredible and had recognizable names, like our dear Wendell Bezerra.
With cartoon-style graphics, Hi-Fi RUSH presents a real visual spectacle, and it seems that we often watch an animated series, because it offers great action even in cutscenes.
The transitions between scenery and gameplay are practically invisible, they can only be noticed because the character is 3D, but the work of the animators was very good.
Overall, Hi-FI RUSH proves that, not only are you good at horror games, you should be limited to that, the game is full of references, such as Jojo bizarre Adventure, Tio paws, Evil Within, and many more that escape me now.
The experience offered by this game is something amazing, with many amazing elements and still a lot of post-game content, charismatic characters, really challenging levels, but without letting the player get bored or bored, kilos of references and an impeccable soundtrack, it managed The game manages to provide the perfect recipe for a must-have action-adventure game for all gamers, and best of all, it’s available at no additional cost from Xbox GamePass.
