Joe Danger: Special Edition

Summary: The first time I saw a preview for Joe Danger I was instantly transported back to 1988, to memories of discovering Excitebike for the first time. But would this homage by the people at Hello Games bring the same level of enjoyment? This was a silly question to ask, of course. Because despite my nostalgia for the NES Excitebike , I’ll be the first to tell you that it was actually a rather crap game, especially by modern standards.
Summary: This game is a lot of fun, but I still wouldn't recommend it for 1200 points. While I write this it's on offer for 600, if that was it's permanent price I'd give it a 9/10. The game has solid game play and and quite a bit of replay value. But the majority of people will only get around 10-15 hours until they get too bored to play any longer. Achievements 8/10 Challenging achievements but do able, the online ones can be done with a different profile.
Summary: Fantastic game - This is game has the fun elements of excitebike, the stunts and physics of Trials HD with touches of classic mario bros/Sonic the Hedgehog style of fun. I don't think I've ever cursed at a game more than Trials HD (that game is fantastic, but frustratingly difficult in a very good way)...this game is far more forgiving than Trials, yet can be as challenging as you want it to be.
Summary: Oh Joe, how I have screamed at you! With elements of Trials, Excite bike, SSX and Tony Hawks this really is a candy coloured treat! You will be glued to that leader board and you will curse Joe... a lot!
Summary: how did this get a 91 and trine 2 get an 86? Xbox bias at it's best. well this game was fun for about 10 minutes then i realized...hmm...why did i listen to critics again? i gotta stop doing that!
Summary: @ThePizzaman100 You're an idiot for bashing this game and then giving it a 10. @randomreview You're just and idiot. This is a great game, but not for everyone so give the trial a shot before you purchase. And this is coming from someone who has completed Trials 100%.
Summary: Joe Danger Special Edition is lying in its title... It is not special but instead the usual "This is going to be ok for a month" arcade game. There are some fun elements to it but overall it is the same boring rubbish that we expect this time of year from someone trying to make a quick buck. If you want a brilliant bike game play Trials, not this waste of money!!!
