KickBeat is a fairly standard rhythm game augmented by some visual flair and a polarising soundtrack. The attention to detail we've come to expect from Zen Studios is present in full effect, both in the luscious 3D models and in the interface with statistics galore. This isn't a title you'll likely still be playing years from now, but it's a surprisingly meaty experience, and if you're a music game addict or a huge fan of early '00s mainstream hard rock music, you'll love kicking these beats.

While there’s nothing fundamentally wrong with the game, nothing really makes it special either. It’s just a very basic rhythm game with a very specific style of music. I can only recommend this game if it’s your… Last Resort.

KickBeat: Special Edition is thoroughly average. It succeeds in almost every area - except, crucially, its primary gameplay. It proves that Zen Studio is unafraid to step outside of the comfort zone it has carved out with its pinball games, but unfortunately suggests that the team should stick to what it knows best.
