Avicii Invector – Xbox One Review
Our Xbox One Review of Avicii Invector
I always do like a game that manages to mix a few different things together. I used to love back in the day games such as Guitar Hero and Rock Band, where I could spend hours playing through different songs with my guitar or the drum kit you use to get with Rock Band. I quite enjoy games that mix music with some sort of rhythmic sense, because they tend to create some fun titles. Over the past few days, I’ve had the chance to play with a new title that has done just that. Avicii Invector, which is in honour of the late Swedish DJ. How would the game fare?
Avicii Invector is developed by Hello There Games and published by Wired Productions, and released a few weeks back on console. It is a music rhythmic game, where over the course of different worlds and levels, you’ll play through and listen to a variety of Avicii’s hits, and you’ll need to hit different buttons at different times in order to score points. If you’ve played anything like this before, i.e Guitar Hero, you’ll know the concept – you must hit the corresponding button at the right time in order to build up your score and streak.
What is nice about a game like this, is that it is so basic, and so simple, and that’s what I’d have expected from it. It’s not a game that offers any sort of story, it’s merely a game that you can pick up and play through when you get a bit of time free to spare. It’s one of those games that really focus on the gameplay element of it, and it does do it well. It’s not a game that’s going to ask for much to learn.
You’ll need to work your way through the songs, whilst hitting those scores and getting those streaks going, and at the end of each song you’ll be given a letter ranking. You’ll need to complete several of the songs to open up new worlds and within each world comes a brand-new track list to play your way through.
It’s not a game that’s going to ask a lot to learn in terms of the controls, and that’s always nice because I feel it goes well with the idea that you can pick up and play whenever. You’ll need to hit the correct button on your controller at the time it comes through on the song. You’ll find yourself finding the rhythm and really getting into the game, and if you’ve not got the idea after the first play through, you will after the second. It’s such an easy game to pick up and get stuck into.
Perhaps for some people, the challenge that is on offer in Avicii Invector might not be enough. Most of the songs are quite easy to pick up and get through and get a high enough score on, and for some people, I think a more challenging approach may have been wiser. Even some of the harder difficulty songs within the game, I found perhaps a bit too easy. It will take some time to be hitting those perfect scores on every song, but for some, it’s not going to be a game that takes too much challenge for those who play, and that might be a turn-off for some.
Avicii Invector is a sole single player experience, and perhaps aswell, this is something that I’d have liked to have seen expanded in there. Offering some sort of multiplayer experience, and although you do have the ability to crack out with your friends at your console, I’d have liked to have seen something online in there. For me, it’s only a small thing, and with the game that Avicii Invector is, I don’t mind personally going it alone offline, but if you’re someone who does enjoy taking games online and going up against other people, then you’re not going to be in luck with this.
Avicii Invector is a game that I have really enjoyed my time with so far. I love the music rhythmic style games, and if you were a fan of either Guitar Hero or Rock Band, or a few others that allude me, then you’ll enjoy this. I think it’s a great tribute to Avicii, and although the game could offer more of a experience and a challenge in parts, it’s a fun enjoyable title, and with a game like this, I don’t think you can really ask for much more.
