BIT.TRIP Presents: Runner 2, Future Legend of Rhythm Alien
2 September 2013
Summary: By the time Bit.Trip Runner burst onto the scene three years ago, Gaijin Games had already established itself on WiiWare with a trio of some of the best games on the platform. The retro-inspired rhythm series shared certain core tenets, but always placed a clear emphasis on reinvention. Runner took that to the next level, shaking the abstract presentation of its predecessors for a much more mainstream look and appeal.

Excerpt: Even though you’re always running it never feels like you get anywhere when it comes to the auto-running genre. Gaijin Games’ Bit.Trip sequel, Runner2 , never feels that way. Though Commander Video automatically runs left-to-right there’s an undeniable sense of player agency and personal progression that’s usually lacking in other similar titles. Runner2 , like the platformers of a largely bygone era, has a world map with each of the game’s many, many stages.
is a great step up for the Bit.Trip series. It’s addicting to play and has the difficulty/reward factor down. Definitely check it out if you’re a fan of platformers or runner-type games.

4 April 2013
Summary: The indie talent at Gaijin Games brings a lot to the table with Bit.Trip Runner 2, but an otherwise excellent package is bogged down by somewhat nauseating action and gameplay equal parts terrific and tiring.
Pros: Fast-paced, fluid platforming, Brilliant electronic music that builds as you play, Tons of secrets and unlockables
Cons: Somewhat nauseating action, Middle section drags, Without replays, only five hours of content

Summary: Run Commander Video, Run!
Pros: Gorgeous environments and cartoony cutscenes with narration by Charles Martinet, Level of challenge that is accessible to players of all skill levels., Amazing soundtrack that plays to the strengths of the world and level design., Quirky cast of characters., Very high replay value.
Cons: Some button detection and animation priority issues which can be frustrating in sections where lots of quick presses are required in succession.

Conclusion: Bit.Trip Presents...Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien is the best of several worlds. It's a both a Platformer that prefers pure reaction over trial and error memorization and a Runner reaching for complexity beyond a simple endless marathon. Surprisingly, Runner2 is also an accomplished rhythm game and one hell of a weird visual experience, should you choose to pay close enough attention. From any of its angle, Runner2 merits interest and appreciation.
‘Bit.Trip Presents…Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien’ Review
6 March 2013
Excerpt: Gaijin Games’ Bit.Trip series has had six installments, each dealing with a different type of game style retro-fied and in tune with music. One of the crowd pleasers, Bit.Trip.Runner , took that same auto-runner gameplay and made it more rhythmic and challenging as a platformer/runner hybrid. Gaijin has decided to take what they learnt from Runner and apply it to a sequel. But this isn’t a Bit.Trip game, this is Bit.Trip Presents…Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien .
