Worst Sound Effects Ever

#1 Posted by YoungFrey (1321 posts) -

I tried the demo for TerRover this weekend.  It's cute and not a bad puzzle platformer.  But I can't think of a game with worse sound effects.  And I started in the 2600 era.  The relentless grinding of your vehicle is about as at odds with its cute design as possible.  It reminds me of a fork caught in a garbage disposal.  I could only tolerate it when it was muted.   
 
Just plain awful.

Shame to hear it is so f-ed up. Still want to check this though. Presentation looks sick

It wasn't bad to play, but it would be wrong to think of it as Moon Patrol despite the similar looks.  It felt more like Trials HD with how precisely you had to control your angles to get over bumps.  I could have sworn Vinny and Ryan did a Quicklook, but it isn't here so I must have imagined it.

Yeah Trials HD seems to be correct comparison .  
 
Can definitely see how the sound effects could become annoying.

@kalmis:
And Trials HD is way better.  If somebody happened to not have both, I'd push Trials at them hands down.  That game is like addictive.

I played the demo a few times, totaling perhaps 2hrs+, I can't get enough! I actually like the sound effects but I think this is because I have my sound very finely calibrated. Have not made the purchase to not being sure if I have more time and also the reviews scare me.
