Hi-Fi Rush gets review bombed with perfect scores on Steam, now Xbox’s highest-rated game at 97%

Showing support to the developers.

We're all used to review bombs in the most literal sense—such as when fans dived Helldiver 2's scores because of questionable decisions from Sony. However, today, we saw something more incredible: a positive review "bomb" for Hi Fi-Rush as a gesture of support after the developing studio, Tango Gameworks, was closed by Microsoft recently.

Hi-Fi Rush gets review-bombed positively on Steam

Hi-Fi Rush has gotten review-bombed on Steam but with positive scores. Because of this, Hi-Fi Rush is now Xbox and Bethesda's highest-rated game on the platform, currently at 97%.

While this is a postive review bomb is certainly an unusual case, it's not unusual for Hi-Fi Rush, as its developer Tango Gameworks along with other Bethesda studios, was announced to be closed by Microsoft recently.

After the announcement, Tango Gameworks went to X (formerly Twitter) to announce its closure as well as its thanks to fans for the support.

Needless to say, the closures were completely unexpected and caught everyone by surprise.

Hi-Fi Rush received universal acclaim from both fans and critics when it was released back in January 2023 on PC and Xbox Series X/S. In our Hi-Fi Rush review, we called it an absolute headbanger and potential Game of the Year Contender.

The game also was recently released for the PlayStation 5 less than a couple of months ago in March. It received numerous nominations and industry awards, including Best Audio Design at The Game Awards and the Game Developers Choice Awards and Best Animation at the British Academy Game Awards.

While most of the positive reviews are for Hi-Fi Rush, other Tango Gameworks titles like The Evil Within and its sequel are also getting review-bombed with positive scores on Steam. The recent reviews of the games show support for Tango while others are bashing Microsoft for closing it.
