A Sleeper Hit That Will Never See A Sequel

Always Samsung "ravereviews", Amazon
26 March 2006
  • Summary: VEXX is a great a game. It rivals any of the action/adventure platform mascots to Jak/Sly/ & Mario. Unfortunately this 4 year old game that came out back in 2002 didn't seem to receive the attention it deserved. No game is ever perfect and this game has its minor flaws. It's also beautifully constructed & there are other games that came out the same year & their visuals never looked as beautiful as this game. Give it a try.

Good game

  • Summary: He's short, slightly furry and shifts fluidly from kinda cute to downright gnarly. No, not Danny Devito. That's Vexx, the titular character in Acclaim's new platform adventure game. The opening narration tells the story of Vexx's people being enslaved by the Shadow Wraiths. When forced to work in the mines, Vexx lashes out at his captor.

If you like platforms then you will love this one!

  • Summary: Ok, 3 months before this game came out I saw a playable demo of it. The sales person told me I had to check this out it was Mario meets Maximo but only darker. Of course, after seeing the demo I bought the game when it came out. Vexx is going to be a classic on the same level as the Crash Bandicoot series. Vexx actually looks a little like Sonic the HedgeHog but with razor sharp claws that makes him good for climbing walls.

Has some down falls, but still is great fun!

  • Summary: Vexx, very similar to Spyro, is actually a pretty good game. I was entised to buy it because of the graphics and it has held up to the $$$ worth. Here is the game broken down from a 1-10 scale, 10 being the best, 1 being really, really bad: Graphics:9 Like I stated earlier, this game has no problems with the graphics that a re stunning and are basically eye-candy. Story:7 This is where Vexx started to struggle in my opinion.

Killer graphics + Addictive gameplay = Hours of fun!

  • Summary: I rented this game the first week it came out and I was hooked. I spent more hours playing this game than I expected because I just couldn't get enough of it! THE GOOD: 1. Graphics 2. Challenging and addictive game play 3. Mammoth worlds with seemingly endless places to explore 4. Great character maneuverability and attack moves (with the exception of swimming!) THE NOT SO GOOD: 1.

GREAT PLATFORM GAME

Derrell Gore, Amazon
1 March 2003
  • Summary: I am so tired of people talking about bad camera angles. There isn't a game that doesn't have them so get over it. This game is one of the best platform games I have seen. I played all the way through JAK & DAXTER and SLY COOPER without hardly thinking. Both are great games but way to easy. Vexx not only is a great game but it is actually somewhat challenging. Not to say it doesn't have it's easy parts too. I hope to see a sequal.

Beautiful environment, I give this one a B

Amazon
25 February 2003
  • Summary: We rented this game from the local video store. The environement you get to play in is beautiful. The colors are vivid but at times the it can get quite dark and hard to see. A cool aspect of the game is you are able to change the time of day while you are playing in an environment- that is unique! There are many different options for game play, climbing, jumping, blasting, sliding, shimmying, etc. Lots of ways to move and attack.

VEXX

Stickville "Stickville", Amazon
19 February 2003
  • Summary: This is a very cool, very fun game - much in the vein of Ratchet & Clank and Jak and Daxter. The only problems were the maddening camera angles (tough to control) and the feshman swimming controls. And don't bother with the Prima Strategy Guide. It's very basic, dosen't cover the controls, and just skims over the walk throughs. It seems as if it was just slapped together to meet a deadline.
