Audiosurf: Has a better Mono Mode,
Check this on Google: A Hand Full of Audiosurf Addons :P

Audiosurf: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3XeLCX7etU
(See my Extended Audiosuref Vids on YouTube) Played with Mods :P

Audiosurf Air (2): Mono is not better, but Wakeboard Mode is rly nice :D
Hope I could help ^^

I disagree, AS2 Mono is significantly better than AS1 Mono. More colored blocks so you can have actual competition (not just hit every block and get the best possible score already), seperate scoreboards so it doesn't have to be balanced with other modes (which is impossible) and you can mod it (if you don't play to compete with others. different lua = different scoreboard).

That was the other point in why i wanted AS2 over AS1
teh mods

hmmm so far i might just get 2... it's also still in progress so if people think it's good now it might just get better

I'd go for two. Short term, 1 could be the best option, but long term 2 will be the most bang for your buck. It'll have everything 1 has, but better, and more of it. Also, comments like "such and such mode sucks now!" Should be ignored since mods can fix everything, and it's also their opinion, not a fact.

Don't do it. I've just felt disappointed when playing AS2. Maybe that will change at its full release. Maybe it will get playlist support so I don't have to scroll through folders again and again for ages. Who knows?

But for now, get AS1. Trust me. When it is released, it will get a better discount than it has now. If not at the release, shortly after.

"I don't like this game because I have to work a little bit to find music" not sure thats a very valid reason to tell someone not to buy it. Though it's a good point theres a lot in this that beasts out AS1 without competition.

"I don't like having to spend one minute (yes, for people who keep their music organised and switch between genres and albums) finding a new track, making it take over ten minutes to navigate through the GUI for a one-hour session. If there was a playlist it could go through them all automatically."

Fix'd

Anyway, I only listed that as a feature it could and should get in the proper release. I think the OP should find out if AS is enjoyable for him. It isn't a game for everybody. He should get AS1. If he enjoys it and it's doing everything he wants it to, he should stick with it until this game is ready. Not only will it probably be cheaper, but it (hopefully) won't have as many disappointments and more in it to separate it from AS1.

I accept your opinion Mantis, and thank you for explaining! I've also had a few reasons why I would play AS1 over AS2, though I personally don't have much time for either. XD
Other than that I'm not sure what else would help him decide between the two without playing them...

Well, as I said AS1 will be cheaper than AS2, so that's the main reason why I'd recommend buying it first.

How ironic.

guys calm down
it's just a simple question not a war

I picked AS2 (and i do like it) mainly since it's better in the long run since it had mods and such

1624 hours in AS1......... 55 minutes in AS2. Perhaps I just haven't given it much of a chance, but I just can't get into 2. Regret buying it now.
