BIT.TRIP Presents Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien Wii U eShop Review | Negative World

Stephen B from Negative World writes: "
When I was a young boy, long car rides bored me. Hell, short car rides could bore me. To combat this semi-constant risk of dullness, I would stare outside my window and imagine… With the grass passing by, telephone poles whizzing past my placement, and the landscape constantly changing, I would imagine myself a rabbit. This rabbit was something akin to Bugs Bunny but really he never had that much of clear description. The one thing that was clear though… he liked to run. He liked to jump! He would leap over fences and slide along power lines. This rabbit would join me on those car rides and constantly run. Endlessly. Jumping and busting through any and all obstacles. This would settle my mind for trips upon trips. Had I been more aware of what was happening in my head, perhaps I would have been a game designer at a young age, as when I was six, I pretty much had the idea for Bit.Trip Presents Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien (known from here on out as Runner2). However, lucky for all of us, Gaijin Games would capitalize on this concept and carve themselves a whole new platforming genre… and an incredible sequel to boot." (BIT.TRIP Presents: Runner 2, Future Legend of Rhythm Alien, Wii U) 9.5/10
