Xbox-Hq.Com
7 May 2004
  • Excerpt: Are you a fan of platform games, but just can’t stomach the thought of your friends catch you playing Mario Sunshine? Acclaim’s latest platform game, Vexx, just might be for you then. It’s definitely darker than Mario and earns its Teen rating. For Xbox platform gamers who’ve had little to cheer about, Vexx may be what you need. It doesn’t star some pansy plumber or mutant talking animal.

The Next Level
23 April 2003
  • 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.

  • Excerpt: Ever since the Donkey Kong days Nintendo has had their friendly Italian plumber by the name of Mario. Throughout the years we’ve seen him in a vast number of games, but it’s one of his most recent games; Super Mario Sunshine that’s important in this review, because Vexx seems to borrow a good chunk from it.

Game Over Online
24 March 2003
  • Excerpt: It’s because of this trend that the new wave of platformers that are hitting next-generation consoles are such a breath of fresh air. Games like Ratchet & Clank and Super Mario Sunshine have shook the genre up with their new ideas and innovative designs that, while still sporting some scavenger hunt elements, rely a lot more on other, more creative platforming ideas. If there’s one serious problem the platforming genre has always faced, it’s a total lack of originality.

Game Over Online
24 March 2003
  • Excerpt: If there’s one serious problem the platforming genre has always faced, it’s a total lack of originality. Back in the days of the SNES, pretty much every platforming game looked and played like Mario. They all had you engaging in sidescrolling levels where you jumped on enemies to kill them and collected power-ups to give you extra powers, all so you could save some lazy-ass princess who, for some reason, always got kidnapped by the same damn evil villain.

The Armchair Empire
2 July 2002
  • Excerpt: 2002 is shaping up to be the year of the platformer. With Blinx (XB), Mario Sunshine (GC), Ratchet and Clank (PS2), Rayman 3 (GC, PS2, XB), and Sly Cooper (PS2) all on the way and looking amazing, it is easy to imagine some really solid platformers slipping through the cracks. Hopefully, Acclaim’s Vexx will not be one of those because, if it is able to fulfill the promise of the recently released videos and screenshots, it could easily be in contention for sleeper hit of...

  • Conclusion: Neue Wege und richtig hohe Wertungsregionen werden damit trotzdem nicht beschritten. Zwar soll dies in keinster Weise eine Begründung für die Wertung sein, allerdings haben mich auch Kleinigkeiten bei Vexx immer wieder gestört. So darf man kein schon einmal eingesammeltes Herz aus Versehen noch einmal mitnehmen, ohne den laufenden Auftrag zu unterechen und die teilweise bedenklich wirkende KI der Gegner erinnert ein bischen an Urinstinkte, die völlig ohne Hirneinsatz zum...
