    The guiding intention behind Runner 2 on consoles generally seemed to be to make players work to finish each level — to make them memorize the layout for each level, and then hit all the buttons in the right order at the right times — and that's survived the game's transition to the PS Vita wholly intact.

    Runner 2 is a wonderful game, one that will last you and age as you want nothing more but to rinse every last bit of enjoyment from a wonderfully crafted experience. Once you beat every level, complete every goal, you’ll be going after those top scores, the closer you get, the harder you want to try.

    Still great and perfectly suited for portable gaming, Runner 2 on PS Vita has got some minor technical hiccups that do not prevent it from being extremely fun and such a joy to look and listen to.

    Runner 2 is an addictive and rewarding experience. A superb mix of a platform game and a rhythm game

    The beauty of BIT.TRIP Presents: Runner 2 – Future Legend of Rhythm Alien is in its variety. Never content to rest on its laurels, the energetic adventure dashes from one mechanic to the next, resulting in a release that rarely outstays its welcome.

    Runner2 is a brilliant sequel and every bit as system-throwingly punishing as the original. Spot-on controls, online leaderboards, and plenty of content seal the deal.

    Those who want the best Runner 2 experience, however, should seek it out elsewhere. If you only have a Vita to play with, though, then this is still a mighty fine way to get your dose of Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien.

    The first one was one of my favorites on Wii. This one is great but I still prefer the first one. The gameplay isn't very different and the music is very similar to the first one but still awesome. I preferred the charming 8bit graphics of the first one than the new upgraded graphics. Runs great on Vita and it is nice to have this gameplay on the go. Still a great game especially if you didn't play the first one. Expand
