Is this game worth it?
Hey guys, I saw that this game was on sale, and I heard some good things about it. So I was just wondering how the gameplay was, and do you do more then just run and jump over obstacles. Cause this looks more like an iphone app from how I look at it. But is this game really worth the money?

Yes it is worth every cent!
You are running all the time - you can't stop (thus the name), but you have to jump over, slide under and kick through objects and enemies. Then there is collectable gold in every level and the sliding jumping and kicking + collecting the gold makes a tune, so if you play good it will sound awesome, oh and inbetween you can dance - if you're good enough! Furthermore there are additional exits + lots of unlockable characters and costumes.
There is also a little bit of story, but it's not really worth mentioning.

Be warned about the difficulty though, it can get frustrating later on and it's rather short. I finished every level on highest difficulty with all gold in under 10 hours, so a normal playthrough could last from 4-8 hours I think.

Runner 2 is absolutely, positively worth it. It's worth a good $20, I'd say. It's not a dumb Temple Run clone -- it's a much larger game, with a Super Mario World style overworld, boss battles, and so much content you will barely believe you paid so little for it.

On top of what Termix said, everything is in Ultra-Super-HD, and beautifully designed. It also has a superb soundtrack, which interacts well with the tune created by collecting collectibles and passing obstacles. The developers specifically made the blips and bleeps of collecting stuff in the same key as the background music. The interface is perfectly user-friendly, and the subtle comedy in things such as the level names (e.g. a forest level called "Morning Wood") adds to the experience.

It's a reformulating of the formula of the very popular (though extremely difficult) BIT.TRIP RUNNER. "Just Right" mode has a good difficulty curve, but obviously the later levels will be tougher, requiring more precision and complex moves. "Rather Hard" mode is the understatement of the year; it's for fans of the original, apparently. If you like easy, medium, or difficult simplistic music games, you can't go wrong with Runner 2.

Buy it. Buy it, buy it, buy it. It's on sale.

Very much worth it. Less punishing and more rewarding than the original

Yup! So much content it's not even funny.

It's simple looking, but it's genuinely engaging. I was really impressed and didn't regret buying it at all.

It's probably one of my favorite games this year, the music in it awe-inspiring, and the characters, and level design is great. (Plus Collectables)

Super Addictive. Fall in love the first time I saw it. It really makes you want to unlock everything. The only downside is the green picle. I really don´t like this character. It´s like Derpy from MLP but not cute.

Love the game, love the concept.
Well worth the $$$
its not too hard (for med difficulties) and you can raise the diifficulties to make it even more challenging (and get achievement)
and also I like how you have to find RETRO mode and play it.

full of surprises!

There isn't really anything I can add that hasn't already been stated. This game was a great purchase.
