Joe Danger Special Edition
Game Over Online
20 December 2015
Excerpt: A year and a half ago, Hello Games released Joe Danger for the PS3 to great critical acclaim. It was a light-hearted motorcycle platformer that gave players who loved either Excitebike or Trials HD more of that kind of game.
Excerpt: As a child, I always used to doodle a wicked sweet pair of shades and a massive grin on the sun, forever beaming comforting Crayola rays in the background of my picturesque scrawls. I grew up with age.
Excerpt: Joe Danger doesn't know what he wants to be. His cape, body suit and helmet are modeled after famous daredevil, Evel Knievel. Yet Joe Danger aspires to be more than just a bus-jumping stuntman.
Conclusion: Joe Danger: Special Edition is the definitive version of the game and one that the plucky stuntman can be proud of.

Conclusion: As far as the 360-specific additions are concerned, there are a few extra environments and characters for you to get your teeth into, but the core of Joe Danger is resolutely the same as its PS3 cousin. And for once, that’s a fantastic thing.
Summary: Joe Danger Special Edition has a lot of gameplay on offer but doesn’t quite become the super thrill ride that it hopes to be. Still, it’s quite a good game for the price and it certainly did not feel like the price was too high for the product.
Excerpt: Joe Danger was unquestionably one of the highlights of downloadable games in 2010, and certainly one of the best all round games of that year. The game, which combines dangerous motorbike riding with platforming, was originally released on the PS3, although Hello Games have seen sense to expand its...
Conclusion: Joe Danger may have elements of a dozen different games, but all of those bits and scraps have been assembled into a unique quilt. It is slick, varied, and downright addictive. I heartily recommend it.
