why is this game rated so high?
I admit, i have not played this, i played bit trip runner and many other endless runners on the ipad and i still can't get over how many "endless runners" there are on ipad or why they are so popular

if you think back to the days on nes and playing platformers and being stuck on one part where you try to jump and miss the jump and die and then have to try again and again and die and die and die again and throw the controller at the wall.....

and then imagine that this concept is the entire game..just run and jump and slide until you die, and die, and die and die....and contgratulations, you discovered the "endless runner" genre

Or..just a thought....you could NOT fail and NOT die and actually complete the game.

I think it's all personal preference really. I find this game to be fun in the sense that it's constantly challenging you. Not challenging to the point that you're banging your head against the wall angry, but enough to make you retry it for a while until you get the pattern down.

It has a really good level progression and slowly gets harder and harder, so by that time your skill should have gotten a little better etc. It's kind of an adrenaline rush for me, especially when it gets difficult. For a $15 game, I think there is a ton of content to be experienced, not to mention different paths on levels and the ability to go back and play them all over again on the hard difficulty.

I just get a sense of accomplishment beating a hard level on this game hahaha.

There is nothing endless about this runner. And whether you die a lot or not, well that's up to you. The checkpoints make it real easy to get through the levels.

okay now, if this game has a storyline and level progression and a definite endpoint then I can understand it

so then..this is not an endless runner? from the frontpage it looked like just another endless runner ..like i said, i did not play it. i played a "Freemium" one on the ipad called "bit trip runner" and it apparently no longer exists...maybe it was a counterfeit hacker knockoff and that is what soured my opinion.

there are many "endless runners" out there on mobile platforms that have no storyline and never end and its just about seeing how far you can get and when you play enough you collect enough coins or whatnot to unlock powerups so you can get further...
like temple run and agent dash and TheEndApp and Don't run with a plasma sword and zombie ace and robot unicorn attack and they have great graphics but they just frustrate the hell out of me and after an hour its just the same thing over and over...its like watching an AVGN episode and seeing the cuts of him trying to jump ove rthe hole and falling in over and over yelling profanity.
i was just saying i don't understand how they got so popular.

This game is awesome, that's why!

It's not endless ♥♥♥♥♥.

The first game is a game that was brilliant yet frustrating. This game is a fantastic sequel and first game if you've never playe it. The game isn't about trying over and over (even though that ends up being most of the game) it's about being in the moment and enjoying it. It's a game of skill and practice and it is just a great game.

I wouldn't call this "endless" by any stretch of the imagination. Sure, there are plenty of continuous runners out there, but, I don't know, there's just something so charming about the enitre Bit.Trip series.

Runner 2 has huge quantities of carefully selected, fan-influenced content, much more than any given iOS game could dream of.

However, is your complaint primarily "that one impossible jump"? That's something that the developers took into consideration. On "Quite Easy" and "Just Right" difficulty, there were very few of those which I couldn't get around after a few tries. The in-game optional checkpoints and branching paths take the edge off the difficulty and add variety. The developers are thinking of you! Yes, you!

If you're wondering why it has such high ratings, it's because every game reviewer with fifteen bucks to spare had barrels of fun with it, and I'm sure you can too.

r-tard..i know that. the guy earlier told me. i was asking if it was an endless runner and they told me it wasn't. it looked like an endless runner and i thought it was one because there was an endless runner on ipad called bit trip runner.

you call me a ♥♥♥♥♥ and yet you are clearly illiterate because you obviously did not read what i wrote

I see people are confused by my thread here.
my complaint is not "that one impossible jump"

I was not complaining about this game at all.

I know nothing about it except the footage the trailer shows.

from the looks of the trailer, they make it look like one of those randomized endless runners on iOS.

yet the metascore is 89/100

most endless runners on Ios are pretty much run for 60 seconds until you reach that "one impossible jump" then you die and start over and i was trying to figure out why those games are so popular.

I never played this game. i saw the metascore is 89/100 and i was shocked by that massive score because i thought it was an endless runner. so I came on here to find out why this game is rated so high to see if it is worth buying

Oh! I'm sorry, I misunderstood. Yes, the trailer was a bit misleading. It is absolutely NOT randomized; there are 100 pre-made levels over the course of five worlds with boss fights, 25 bonus retro stages, seven playable characters and I think 60 costumes, 90 in-game rewards, Steam achievements and...

Well, here. Northernlion obtained a review copy from Gaijin shortly before the release date...

This is what really sold me on the game. Check it out!

Call me biased, but I think it's rated as highly as it is because it's AWESOME.

Again, biased.
