Sweet. I've been waiting to pick up Audiosurf for $5 ever since it came out and now I finally can. Buying this as soon as I finish my work for the day.

I love Audiosurf. Every MP3 I've thrown at it turns into fun... At $5 that's a steal. Totally worth it.

Get both. Beyond Good and Evil is an amazing game that seemed to have been shunned last gen but is highly praised by many. Audiosurf is also pretty fun since you can put your own songs in

I heavily recommend both. Audiosurf is amazing, and a nice time waster if you have an extra 30 minutes or so before having to do something.

Wow, if you don't buy Audiosurf at that price... Come on!
Buy it, it's excellent and the developer deserves the support!
I think I'm going to have to cave on Beyond for that price.

edit: I caved, I've been wanting to play BG&E anyway

Not the biggest Steam fan at all, but BG&E at $4.99 is tempting...

Never played (been meaning too though...). Audiosurf is kinda like a mishmash of Amplitude (PS2) and Tetris. The song determines block placement and track speed, and you race along the track collecting blocks matching up like colors.

Tetris? No. Audiosurf is more like Klax, but the music generates the colors and track.

Damn, I was thinking about buying audiosurf a week or two ago. Now I'll know I'll buy it, seems like a fun little game that can kill some time between classes.

Audiosurf is easily worth double the price he asks for it usually, so at $5 it's a STEAL.

I already have it and thinking of getting a few for gifts (shock!)...

Yes, VidPower. It's in the product description.

I was going to just get Beyond Good and Evil, but I picked up AudioSurf based on everyone's recommendation. Thanks guys! :)

I really don't like playing games on the PC -- much prefer handhelds and consoles. But I've been interested in Audiosurf and the price is right for me to jump on it... just gotta install Steam first. Thanks OP!

Set everything to MAX except Anti-aliasing--I set it one notch below max, and all the graphical glitches disappeared.

Whoah. I just checked - AudioSurf really does contain the Orange Box soundtrack (including Still Alive) in MP3 form, plus the soundtrack to Half Life 1. That's 102 MP3s... This game is worth way more than $5 for the music alone!

It supports widescreen resolutions but the picture is stretched.

I was just about to buy BG&E for PS2, used. Which version do you think is better? Is the PS2 version okay? I'd rather play on a console, but they are about the same price now.

I'd recommend both highly. Beyond Good and Evil is one of my favorite games of all time.

I was just about to buy BG&E for PS2, used. Which version do you think is better? Is the PS2 version okay? I'd rather play on a console, but they are about the same price now.

I'd rather play on my comfortable couch and with a controller I am comfortable with. With that in mind, I would rather play it on my PS2 than on my PC. This PS2 was the platform of choice when they developed the game. I don't believe having any problems playing my PS2 copy.

I was getting around to starting Beyond Good and Evil and Psychonauts any day here. I was only missing BG&E. I just went to play and also experiences massive amounts of glitches. The audio was bout 5 seconds off so I have no idea what even happened at the start. The funniest glitch was that Jade's eyes were like a second behind the character so her eyes would disappear and then reappear or you'd see them following her.

This is why I never played PC games. I like to just pop in the game and not worry about correct settings and what not. I think my 9600 GT is up to snuff to play it but who knows.

Edit: Also how do I access the graphics options after I played it once? I can't find out how to get to it now.

I would love to experience Beyond Good and Evil on my laptop but would one have alot of trouble with control using a laptop keyboard/mouse? I have this game already on the Xbox and PS2 and love it. Bought the PS2 version due to the portability of my slim ps2 and work etc etc...
