Beat Hazard 2 is more of the same, but where I really have to get it credit is with its Open Mic feature. Since streaming has been prominent for long enough, not a lot of people are buying their music or downloading MP3s nowadays. While I like to own a good chunk of my music, it's much easier and more versatile to have a playlist of more than a thousand songs instead. The issue is that YouTube has ads and will fuck you up the ass with an 18-inch lawsuit if you try to say otherwise. Spotify has to go through so many mediators to get music on their service that working with them basically means working with a hundred other companies. So why not cut out the middleman and just use whatever's playing on your desktop? I have serious respect for the developers for modernizing this kind of game with blunt simplicity. Even if I'm not a massive fan of shoot-em-ups, these kinds of games need to start embracing this kind of technique.

The open mic feature is an awesome as well as the global leader board on every track. Unfortunately it is somewhat dead so you won't be often challenged once you set a WR even on a rather popular song.

Not much variety but extremely fun committing genocide with singing anime girls in the background.

You can play with Spotify. That makes this game awesome.
