NDS Review - 'Line Rider 2: Unbound'

WorthPlaying
18 October 2008
  • Summary: Genius Products' Line Rider 2 is built upon the simple premise of what happens when a boy and his sled are sent traveling along in a world drawn by the player. Line Rider 2 will take players far beyond the original game with new game modes, new riders, new community features and new creative tools.

  • Conclusion: It's hard to escape from Line Riders 2: Unbound's grip once it seizes hold of you. This simple puzzle game packs a surprising amount of depth, making hours fly by as you desperately try to pass a tricky course or baffle your friends with a crazy concoction of your own. The PC version is slightly better than its DS counterpart because the latter suffers from control quirks, but the experiences are largely the same.
  • Pros: Physics are surprisingly realistic, Finally figuring out how to pass a level is very rewarding, Robust creation tools, Easy to share tracks online.
  • Cons: Too much trial and error, Steep learning curve, Two riders at once is not fun.

  • Conclusion: In the end, it boils down to whether or not you enjoyed the first Line Rider. If you found yourself really addicted, Line Rider 2: Unbound might be worth a look. But, if you're like me and checked it out, then promptly found it shallow and not particularly exciting, you may want to take a pass. It's not a bad game; there are some good ideas here, and once you get a handle on the creation mechanics, then it's a fairly satisfying game.
