Review: OK, so let’s start with what I like about ‘Beat Miner before I move onto the dump-truck of hate I have for it. I like the style of the game, with its Minecraft mine-cart style graphics it was a good mix on a classic genre. Besides, its only £3.99 as well, meaning it is quite affordable. Well…that is it for the good stuff, now let’s move onto the problems. For one it is very nauseating as you shouldn’t mix fast movement with fast gameplay. But who cares about nausea when it is the gameplay that lets this game down. As per usual with these cheap Beat-Saber style games the beats don’t match the music and this, in turn, leaves the game feeling like a pile of crap to play. It might well only be £3.99, but if you ask me that is £3.98 too much.
