Expert Review

  • Summary: Vexx is a fine platformer. Acclaim Studios Austin have picked the perfect influence in the ever-classic Mario64 and although you shouldn’t expect this to be a clone of M64 you should expect to see a lot of familiar features. Vexx is a concrete addition to the genre and will give you many hours of fun and challenging gameplay, however, the most unique factor of Vexx is probably the look of Vexx himself, a lot is reminiscent of many platformers available.

  • Excerpt: Vexx 's story reads like just about every other platformer in the history of man. Vexx's tranquil and peace loving homeland of Overwood is suddenly (and for no apparent reason) invaded by a big bad guy named Dark Yabu. Dark Yabu then enslaves Vexx's people and kills his grandfather before his eyes, no doubt pissing Vexx off just a wee bit. In his anger-filled rage, Vexx makes his escape, vowing to take down Dark Yabu at all costs.

  • Summary: Vexx isn't quite Mario, but it's still worth taking for a spin if you like platformers.
  • Pros: Dark graphical style, Fighting and combo system provides an interesting diversion, Memorable music, Nice opening cut-scene
  • Cons: Periodic frame rate stuttering and blurry textures mar the visuals, Unrefined camera controls, Very little innovation in gameplay

  • Conclusion: Von Mario bis Matrix wurden Elemente gesammelt und du einem Spiel zusammengesetzt, das sich sehen lassen kann, vorausgesetzt man mag lange, klassische Geschicklichkeitspassagen und lässt sich nicht von den Klauen des Helden zu der falschen Annahme verleiten, Kämpfe würden eine wichtige Rolle spielen. Nicht einmal das Fehlen einiger Elemente, wie Erweiterbarer Ausrüstung und Movepalette kann das solide Gameplay vollkommen aufwiegen, also "gerade noch" Empfehlenswert.
  • Pros: Gute Steuerung, Gutes Leveldesign
  • Cons: Fähigkeiten ändern sich nicht, Vieles kopiert

Vexx, le test

Nintendo
1 January 2004
  • Summary: Vexx est un jeu mitigé, contrasté d'une part par des idées originales mais mal exploitées, d'autre part par une réalisation d'ensemble moyenne qui ne fait pas le poids face à des mastodontes comme Rayman 3 ou Super Mario Sunshine. Effectivement, comme l'ont suggéré des collègues d'un autre site, le terme exact à utiliser dans ce genre de cas est 'dommage', car Vexx nous laisse un sentiment un peu amer, un jeu qui avait pourtant les capacités mais qui plaira...

  • Excerpt: Tout droit sorti des studios texans d'Acclaim, Vexx envahit les consoles nouvelles générations avec un titre de plates-formes plutôt bien fait mais qui peine à convaincre entièrement.
