PS4 and PS5 players were surprised by a stealth release. While stealth releases are fairly common on Nintendo Switch, the PS4 and PS5 are like other platforms in that it’s rare for either to get a stealth release. That said, that’s exactly what the two just got. If you noticed sound drop on PSN came out of nowhere, that’s because the game came out of nowhere on a variety of platforms, including the PS4 and PS5.
Courtesy of publisher Noodlecake and developer Drastic Games, sound drop is available now on both PlayStation consoles for $29.99. Whether the rhythm-based action game is worth $30, well, that’s up for debate. Due to the recent and stealth nature of the release, it has no Metacritic scores to offer insight into its quality. It does, however, have Steam user reviews that do just that. Out of 173 user reviews, 90% of gamers rated the game positively, earning it a “very positive” Steam user review rating. Of course, a 90 on Steam doesn’t translate to a 90 on Metacritic because it’s not terribly difficult to get a positive rating on Steam. That said, what this confirms is that the game, at the very least, is competent.
“sound drop is a dungeon crawler that combines looter shooter action with rhythm-based gameplay,” reads an official text about the game on Steam. “Adventure solo or with up to four friends locally or online. Collect loot and time your actions in rhythm to become all-powerful. Robust campaign mode, listen to over 100 songs for free or import your own music.
