    Crafted by hard-core gamers - its strong point in terms of sheer satisfaction - and it shows. [Mar 2003, p.56]
  2. But its biggest flaw is the same as many 3D platformer games that are released today: there's nothing new or innovative in Vexx to make it stand out over many similar type of games.
  3. Vexx is a curiously grim exercise featuring gargantuan free-form levels fraught with danger and a surprisingly combat-heavy fighting system of combos, uppercuts, and vicious slashes.

    There are bosses with personality and the fighting is pointlessly gratifying enough to distract for long periods of time, but those hungry for some kind of innovation might be left a little cold here.
  5. Adding some variety would have been nice. As it is, what puzzles are in the game are average, and running around collecting things gets rather tiring after a few levels.
  6. 69
    It's not terrible, but it's not terribly good, either. It's just good enough (and just bad enough) to qualify as neither; The game is perfectly balanced in a state of Swiss-like neutrality.

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

No its not very innovative but I am shocked i do not know anyone else who owns this game. I would describe it as mario 64 with a meaner attitude. Expand

    Why all this "just the same as any other platfomer" That genre has been around so long there's not much room left for inovation. The Why all this "just the same as any other platfomer" That genre has been around so long there's not much room left for inovation. The bottom line is: If you like platformers this is a very good, well polished example. Expand

    It could have been a great game but: 1) it's frustrating (too much to repeat if you fail) and 2) the camera is an enemy too often (why It could have been a great game but: 1) it's frustrating (too much to repeat if you fail) and 2) the camera is an enemy too often (why don't developers work more on this?!?)
