Hexagroove: Tactical DJ review: Playing to the crowd

Hexagroove review
Hexagroove: Tactical DJ is a shot of concentrated joy for fans of dance music, but the lack of content or a proper tutorial prevents it from becoming a truly useful tool for would-be DJs. The Nintendo Switch exclusive Hexagroove: Tactical DJ combines rhythm and strategy to gamify the art of beatmatching. It essentially tries...
