Summary: “Line Rider” is an awesome game, but “Line Rider 2: Unbound” expands on that concept to the point that the original feels like a cheap knockoff. This game will certainly appeal to many more people, including fans of the original game. In short, buy this game if you’re even so much as considering it.
Pros: -Extremely high replay value., -Good bang for the buck., -Very extensive toolset in Puzzle mode., -Addictive., -Soundtrack is immensely catchy., -Sharing created levels gives this game an endless lifespan.
Cons: -Very barebones graphics., -Learning curve is insane., -No in-depth tutorials for Puzzle mode.
Summary: The deceptively simple Line Rider started as a free Flash game. It was able to move beyond restrictions, such as not having a tangible goal or even the ability to save your hard-earned work, and ensnared a community of creatively inclined ski artists. Unbound, the first retail release of the series, has kept the simple design from the original while adding more track options, a full Story mode, and community features to share all of your work.
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
