  1. It's just a simple fact that Vexx brings nothing new to the table, and too much about the game comes off as unfinished and rushed.
  2. Nothing more than your run-of-the-mill platformer. Though the level design and beautiful visuals are something to admire, the audio, plot and general lack of originality leaves something to be desired.
  3. So enjoy this game for what it is, a fun jumping game that can keep you amused for several hours if your willing to spend time trying to collect all the bonuses and complete the mini-games that Acclaim has arranged for you.
  4. Vexx does little more than imitate, which just isn't enough these days... Feels outdated right out of the gate.

    An underwhelming, choppy mess.
  6. While Vexx builds adequately on the 3-D trail blazed by "Super Mario 64," there are others who have taken the next few steps.
  7. I question people paying $50 for a game when they might get the feeling of "been here, done that". Vexx's biggest problem is the camera, but you can overcome it as long as you have patience.

    It's vexing to play a meticulously crafted and pretty 3D platformer when it's devoid of fun. [Apr 2003, p.71]

    It's a solid platformer. It's just not a particularly original or polished one.

    The camera control works great and the play-control scheme is well-designed. [May 2003, p.139]
  11. In such a saturated genre perfection is necessary but Vexx only comes off as average.
