  • 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.

Expert Review

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.

  • Excerpt: Platformspil og Playstation 2 hører ligesom sammen… lidt som vodka og juice eller Køge Boldklub og nedrykning. Derfor kan det vel ikke komme bag på nogen at Acclaim også hopper med på hop-slå-løb vognen i deres spil Vexx. Men kan det overhovedet måle sig med klassikere som Jak & Daxter og Ratchet & Clank?

  • Excerpt: Når Acclaim gør noget… så gør de det grundigt. Det kunne man i hvert fald godt fristes til at tro, for de har udgivet Vexx til GameCube, Plystation 2 og nu også til Xbox. Men det gør ikke så meget, for Vexx er faktisk en fornøjelse at spille… heldigvis.

  • Excerpt: Det værste ved at skulle anmelde platformspil er, at jeg er nødt til at følge med i spillets plot, så jeg kan gengive den nogenlunde sandfærdigt på skrift. Efter min mening behøver platformspil dybest set ikke mere historie end det ældgamle Super Mario Bros 1, hvor historien kan opsummeres som følger: Du befinder dig til venstre i skærmen. Løb til højre så langt du kan komme. Hop over forhindringer på vejen. Sådan, færdigt arbejde.
