Critic Score
Gamergeddon: Beat Hazard Ultra adds some great new features and improves upon the original in a variety of ways. You’ll have access to three new weapons including the Ultra Beam, Micro Missiles, and Reflect Shield – in addition to everything you could use previously. If you want to quickly take a look at the powered up weapons without working your way through the game, check out the new ‘Chill Out’ mode where you start fully powered. Read Full Review 95/100
TSA: Scoring just Beat Hazard would have been a tough decision; it was such a great game, but there wasn’t enough variety in the enemies and without a perks system it didn’t feel like it was quite there. Assigning a score to Beat Hazard Ultra seems like a no-brainer – for a twin-stick shooter, it’s outstanding. Read Full Review 90/100

RandomProdInc: Beat Hazard Ultra is one of the most fun games to play with some friends, you can just pass around the controller and have some laughs at all that is going on, on the screen.
