Video Game Review: Sound Shapes

  • Platform: PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita
  • ESRB: E for Everyone
  • Developer: Queasy Games
  • Publisher: Sony Computer Entertainment
The anticipated summer title has finally hit the PlayStation Store shelves. Sound Shapes, a participating game of the PSN Play program is a platform and rhythm game at the same time. Does the game turn out what we anticipated or did it went beyond?

The gameplay is unique, innovative and addicting. The rules of the game are simple. You basically play along with the rhythmic levels, collect notes, and reach the goal. You also must avoid anything red due to it being a hazard. The game seems to be developed with extreme caution. The controls are feel perfect as they are very responsive. There is hardly any glitches I could spot in this game. Custom level design features are present in the game. You can create your own levels and share them online. You can also play other levels created by other players online. You will definitely be stuck playing this game just like little big planet.

The game’s design is bright and great. The level design is impressive. They bloom with more depth and detail right where the level starts. There are great choices of color as they are fitting in each stage. The sound is also great. The music of the game anticipates you to find all the notes and replay them just to listen to them. The songs in Sound Shapes are great and jam packed with melody. The colors may be simple but that doesn’t mean the graphics suck. Like I said, this game seems to be developed with extreme caution.

Sound Shapes is one of the best download titles in history. For $15 this one is definitely worth buying and playing for decades and decades to come. The great effort put into this game not only made the game great but gave more of what I anticipated. This game is one of the most perfect titles I ever stumbled across.
