Review: BIT.TRIP Presents… Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien (DarkZero)

"Runner games have become extremely popular on mobile platforms, normally going for free but incorporating some kind of in-app purchasing as a way to get money from people addicted to the game. Looking at the PC platform, runner games aren't exa ctly a thriving genre, unless you want to count the flash games you can play through your browser. I'm talking  about purchasable titles, though, such as the recently-released BIT.TRIP Presents... Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien, which I'm just going to shorten to Runner2 because that title is extraordinarily lengthy. Runner2 is a game that sells for £11.99 on Steam, but the thing with Runner2 is that while the game might seem like a fancy runner game from the outside – no doubt people are screaming at the price because of this misjudgement - when you sit down and play the game, you find out it is so much more and is easily the shining example of how to grow the genre into something much more exciting." (DarkZero) (BIT.TRIP Presents: Runner 2, Future Legend of Rhythm Alien, PC) 8/10
