While Kickbeat is sound and technically works very well, and while the song selection can be questionable, there are a few standouts. Unfortunately, there’s just not enough here to keep many people playing after doing the full story once unless you’re looking for a big challenge. For a single play through of the story, it’s alright, but for lasting appeal, it really doesn’t have it.

KickBeat: Special Edition is a solid enough game, but it never does anything beyond its initial concept to make it feel unique. Decent presentation and a comical plot help to balance out boring gameplay and a disappointing soundtrack, culminating in a release that neither looks good nor bad on the dancefloor.

So you get almost the same game as before, with a couple of bonus tracks. The gameplay remains the same, but the graphics have been upgraded to 1080p at 60 frames-per-second. But with the painful omission of custom soundtracks, there is little incentive to re-visit the game once you’ve completed it, and even less after you collect all the stars in the campaign. ...Here’s hoping a PS4 firmware update coupled with a title update will enable custom soundtracks, or at least for some DLC tracks.
