An interesting and challenging rhythm game where your main goal is to run and try to dodge the obstacles on your way to the end of the level
When i started to play this game it quickly got me addicted to finish (almost) all levels perfect and find and finishe all the secret ones
If you are thinking of buying this game i recommend getting a controller , it makes everything easier
PROS:
+Amazing soundtrack
+Great artwork
+Brilliant Gameplay
+Secret levels
+Levels now have checkpoints :)
+Takes a lot of time to 100% it
+It has a total of 5 diffrent worlds with each one having a unique theme , its own character to unlock and 5 secret levels
+It also has alot of characters and costumes to unlock which always a nice edition
+There are 3 difficulties (i recommend normal for the best experience tho if you want more challenge try out hard then but you'll be throwing your controller alot ;) )
+A big variety of obstacles and enemies
+Slenderman is in this game
+Gotta go Fast!!1
+Commandergirlvideo has a nice rack O.O
CONS:
-If you have rage issues I don't recommend this game for you
-If you are an achievement hunter or want to 100% this game you'll have to reset the levels alot so you can get every of the gold ingots
-The game counts deaths ;_;

I rate a total of 9/10

Now go buy this game and 100% ♥♥♥♥♥!

Huuuge step forward in comparison with the first part.

It’s about:
  • catching the right rhythm by jumping/sliding over/under barriers or crashing them;
  • collecting "gold" for higher score rank and getting access to locked levels;
  • finding keys for treasure chests and locked level's areas;
  • releasing new playable characters by completing special levels;
  • fighting bosses.

Why you should play this:
  • you liked first part, but were pushed off by its extreme difficulty - this one offers three difficulty modes to satisfy people with different reaction reflexes;
  • it has much better graphic and supports high-resolution monitors;
  • one check-point on each level - significant improvement which makes it really a game, not perverted reaction training simulator;
  • nice level-design and soundtrack which are not irritating even after dozens of runs of the same level;
  • responding and precise controls.

Why you may not like it:
  • it's not always obvious how to fight with bosses;
  • a lot of different logos and intros every time you launch the game and not all of them can be skipped.

Polished and bright platformer game with perfect compromise between difficulty and challenge.

This is a great rhythm-based platformer. I found the original BIT.TRIP.RUNNER to get really frustrating really quickly, but RUNNER 2 has varying difficulties and much more forgiving checkpoints, and it has a nice cartoony aesthetic and style (and a goofy narrator) that elevates it's silly lightheartedness to RAYMAN levels. It's really enjoyable. It's also one of the few games that really gets me in "the zone".

And dang, that Disco dancin' Cheezborger guy is just so smooooooth.

Runner2 Future Legend of Rhythm Alien
Your task: run forward, collect gold and powerups, but dodge the various obstacles of living and nonliving genesis.
Unlike its predecessor BIT.TRIP RUNNER, Runner2 Future Legend of Rhythm Alien made with good graphics, without a touch of retro bit styling. This means that the probability of vertigo and epilepsy reduced to minimum.
Compared with BIT.TRIP RUNNER, gameplay became softer - to the levels added checkpoints. Checkpoints are located approximately at half of the distance.
Highly recommend to use a gamepad for playing, as well as stock up soothing. :)
For support gamepad you need to purchase additional software, example Pinnacle Game Profiler or Xpadder.

Runner2 Future Legend of Rhythm Alien
Ваша задача: бежать вперед, собирать золото и поверапы, да уворачиваться от различных препятствий живого и неживого генеза.
В отличие от своего предшественника BIT.TRIP RUNNER, Runner2 Future Legend of Rhythm Alien выполнен с хорошей графикой, без налета ретро квадратизма. А значит, вероятность головокружения и приступов эпилепсии сведена к минимому.
По сравнению с BIT.TRIP RUNNER, геймплей стал более мягким - на уровни добавлены чекпоинты, с которых игра возобновлятеся после натыкания на препятствие. Чекпоинты расположены примерно на половине дистанции.
Очень рекомендую использовать геймпад для прохождения, а также запастить успокоительным. :)
Для поддержки геймпада потребуется приобрести дополнительный софт, например Pinnacle Game Profiler или Xpadder.

Big improvement to the previous game with story now included :)
Enjoyed the new visual style and graphics. Lots of new gameplay features and interesting levels. Although, there is to much to do now :)
Lots of new score options including that annoying dance feature which can ♥♥♥♥ you off! Also, there is a lot of backtracking through levels now. Alternate paths to complete, chests to unlock, keys to find etc. This can be really tedious and time consuming with additional difficulty settings now included.

But anyway, I had a lot of fun and enjoyed this game even though I played it "casual" style just to beat the game.

This game is a very colorful and enjoyable game. If you are a perfectionist like me then you may find it a bit irritating, that said, I still enjoy this game immensely and the soundtrack is quite good too.

Pleasing to the eye and ear. Relaxing. For the trifling sale price, it's a winner.
