Hello, I've had this game since Ultra was little more than a tentative plan, and I come back to it every once in a while to play the music I've accumulated since the last time I played. However, I do not own any DLC content for the game.
I know that I u...

Beat Hazard (Ultra) is a music-based game that centers around music, primarily your own playlists, often via iTunes or other media libraries. The game itself has you piloting a ship (or one of many with DLC) whose goal is to score as many points as necessary within the length of any given song and to avoid dying. You'll face enemies ranging from stray asteroids and basic enemy ships, to mines and even bosses in the form of large monsters or battleships with a multitude of weapons at their disposal.
The game rewards you for staying alive by supplying you random powerups and score multipliers that dropped from defeated enemies. If you die, which you can by being hit just once, you lose some of your powers and score bonuses. At the end of the song, your score is tallied and as you score more points, your piloting rank will increase. Increasing your rank gives you the option to select bonus perks, weapons or even extra lives based on your play style.
The difficulty can be adjusted based on two parameters: The song you play and the base game's difficulty. Since the game's pace is based on your music's pace, speeding up and slowing down as the music does, creating a different play through for each song. You can also ramp up the challenge by selecting "hardcore", "insane" "and suicidal". I found "hardcore" to be a nice base for causal playing if you're looking for something that won't stress you out. "Insane" is great for a challenge and "Suicidal" is, well, suicidal. If you're looking to test your reflexes, it will show you no mercy.
In my eyes, the visuals are what make this game so enjoyable. Even with roughly 40 hours of game play done at the time of this review, the visuals have yet to bore me. The visuals, much like the pace of the game, will fluctuate between slow and erratic, constantly changing colors. Players can adjust how strong they want the color effects from the ingame menu, helpful for those with sensitivity issues or that have a difficult time determining enemies from balls of light in the background.
While your overall enjoyment and replayability may differ, the game is well polished and provides comfortable atmosphere and challenging game play. I've enjoyed every moment of this game.
Music - The game syncs to your media library, offering you as many songs to play against as you have.
Track Diversity - The waves of enemies you meet and the pace you meet them changes on each track, keeping you on your toes.
Visuals - Colorful, bright (sometimes too bright :P) and, frankly, pretty to watch.
Challenge - The game can offer a constant challenge.
Without music on your PC, the game would be a shell of its former self. Aside from internet radio and a few built-in tracks, you'll not find much fun after a few play throughs. Having your own music is highly recommended.
Overall, if you're a fan of music-based games, then I'd highly recommend looking into Beat Hazard.
I played the demo and absolutely loved it. I'm planning on getting the full game ASAP, but I'm wondering about the DLCs. What do each of the pieces of DLCs do (in your own words) and should I buy them? Thanks!
I just thought I'd roll up the various issues people have had with the game and offer some solutions to them.
- Ultra uses DX9 where Classic uses DX8. Make sure you have DX9c or later: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?i...
