Game Pass shadow drop Hi-Fi Rush already a hit with players

By Sean Carey,

Hi-Fi Rush, Tango Gameworks' surprise Game Pass shadow drop, appears to have gone down well with players, including on Steam, where the action rhythm game is currently sitting pretty in the platform's Top Sellers list.

A surprise announcement during the Xbox Developer Direct, Hi-Fi Rush launched yesterday for Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Game Pass, and it appears that Tango Gameworks' new action-rhythm title is proving popular among players, so much so that it might make it into our list of the best games on Game Pass.

Hi-Fi Rush is a top seller on Steam with over 500 positive reviews

Over on Steam, the bright and colourful Hi-Fi Rush is currently sitting in fifth place on the Steam Top Sellers chart, behind the likes of two massive games available for pre-order (Hogwarts Legacy and Dead Space), the powerhouse that is FIFA 23, and the free-to-play Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. Hi-Fi Rush has also managed to garner an 'Overwhelmingly Positive' review aggregate from over 500 reviews, which is pretty impressive for a game that was announced out of nowhere. Here on TrueAchievements, it has a TA community rating of 4.22/5.

Across various social media, there appears to be a lot of love for Hi-Fi Rush too. The Xbox Series X and Hi-Fi Rush subreddits are filled with posts of players praising the game for its unique and tight gameplay, impressive visuals, satisfying combos, and humour.

While it's still early days, Tango Gameworks and Xbox could be on to a winner here with Hi-Fi Rush, but what do you think? Have you been enjoying the game? Let us know your thoughts down in the comments.
