After subscribing to BeatMaps you have to restart the game for the BeatMaps to download to the “Songs/Workshop” folder.

Review: ‘Defeat the Beat’ is a terrible music/rhythm game that does at least try to mix things up a bit with things like multiple weapons to hit the beat notes with and 360 gameplay to really mix things up. But sadly it doesn’t matter how many cool things it tries to bring to the table when the main gameplay suffers the same fate as most bad music games which is the beats don’t match the music. It just feels like empty, cold gameplay aginst the musical track if your choice. Yes, there is an in-game editor to make your own beat-maps but that is defeating the object of paying £3.99 for the game. With some more work being done to it this could be a fun game to play, but for now, it is not something I am willing to recommend.
