This is my first review I've ever written so bare with me. I feel this game isn't receiving the recognition it deserves so I wanted to discuss it.
The newest installment to the Bit. Trip series and a direct sequel to Bit. Trip Runner Bit. Trip Presents Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien will have you jumping, sliding, kicking and yes even dancing your way to a harmonious musical victory.
While Runner2's raw graphics aren't breaking any records it's highly stylized art style is gorgeous. The game's sound track is also phenomenal.
Runner2 is a rhythm based side-scrolling platformer. To complete a level you have to jump, kick, slide, reflect projectiles with a shield and otherwise react to obstacles. Where I find value in the game is it's difficulty, you will die and then you will die again and again but that's not entirely a bad thing. You'll feel a sense of achievement and satisfaction after hectically managing to complete a challenging level that will make it all worth it.
Developed by Gaijin Games and released on Steam, XBLA, PSN and Wii U's eShop Runner2 is a game worthy of your time.
