Summary: To me, this was the first game I ever beat and I still play it once and awhile to this day. This game is definitely a well rounded game for any gamer who enjoy's a challenge, good musical score, beautiful scenery, and new surprises around every corner.
Summary: Blinx: The Time Sweeper was shwon at E3 in 2002 and everyone thought it would be amazing. When it came out, it didn't meet the high tandards people had for it. That doesn't necessarily mean it's bad.
Conclusion: Best XBox Platformer? No Way. That award would have to go to "Munch's Odysee" so far. This game is just ok. Unfortunately, Blinx does not have the variety, depth, and story to compete with high quality platformers.
Excerpt: Blinx is not like your typical 3D action/adventure. The levels are structured much differently than you'd expect, starting with a stage that's set up like an old town, filled with houses and other old buildings.
Excerpt: Xbox as relatively little in the way of platforming games, so when blinx was announced, platform fans went crazy at the concept of being able to control time to solve puzzles and defeat enemies. It seemed to offer something unique that was only possible on xbox. So. how did it turn out?
Excerpt: Sega had Sonic. Nintendo has Mario. Microsoft has Blinx. Every console needs a mascot and Microsoft have decided to plump for a time sweeping cat to do the business as it is hoped that this game will serve as a stepping stone to a lucrative series to entice gamers to the XBox.
Excerpt: I loved Blinx! It is a little cartoony which I like and makes you think about your next move! You have to do things in a particular order to help you through the level in the set time frame by collecting pause, rewind, fast forward and play tokens as you go on your merry way.
