5.0 out of 5 stars A Superb, Engrossing Platformer!
Well, with only a single 3-star review (with a 5-star write up that suggests it was incorrectly scored) to it's name on Amazon, I thought it was time to air my views on this game.

3.0 out of 5 stars A complete hit...
Vexx, possibly one in three of my favourite games. I compare this game to Ratchett and Clank and Jak and Daxter as the game is somewhat the same as these two games. Basically you play Vexx who's seeking revenge on the person who killed his grandfather. It's an excellent game and the graphics are brilliant, basically, you should go out and buy this game, not just for...

This review is from: Vexx (PS2) (Video Game)
Well, with only a single 3-star review (with a 5-star write up that suggests it was incorrectly scored) to it's name on Amazon, I thought it was time to air my views on this game.

First of all, this game is darker than your average 3D platform title. Death, the permanent (and apparently painful) attachment of mystical talons to Vexx's body, an entirely unscrupulous main adversary, and your grandfather trapped in a permanent state of torture unless you can rescue him certainly lend the game a bleak edge. Once in the game itself, however, there is a huge amount of fun to be had.

The main objective is to solve riddles that will guide you to the locations of several 'wraith hearts' in each stage. This is not as simple as it sounds, as some of the clues are cryptic at best and even once you've managed to figure out where you need to go to find the heart there will invariably still be some puzzle solving or intricate platform navigation required to actually unlock it. Each unlocked heart gives power to a central hub which can transport you to various stages - the next stage unlocking once sufficient hearts have been collected in each stage.

The game auto-saves after each wraith heart has been unlocked which does help to inspire you through the trickier stages of the game; the game never feels laboured however, and the very responsive controls coupled with a surprisingly manouverable 3rd-Person camera means that the game never feels unfair. The minor enemy characters are amusingly animated and voiced and stringing melee attacks to perform enemy juggling moves is always fun!

The environments in this game are astounding when considered alongside the limitations of the host console. Expansive terrains extend far and wide both horizontally and vertically and the ability to climb to a high point, switch to over-the-shoulder camera and view the entire stage can be very handy when trying to decipher the riddles!

Overall, this is a well-rounded platformer that is challenging without becoming massively frustrating. It still looks gorgeous even today and overall is a lot of fun. It can be picked up for peanuts now and is most definitely worth a bash for fans of Ratchet & Clank and Jak & Daxter.
