By far the best entry in the Bit.Trip series, and completely worth it even if you hated the first Bit.Trip Runner or any other games in the series.

Runner 2 isn't even comparable to any of the other Bit.Trip games due to it's depature from a retro style and is more akin to the likes of Trials Evolution due to the outstanding visuals, insane amount of content and unlockables, and an overall amazing quality of level design with multiple paths and lots of decision making thrown in.

Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien is easily the most fun you'll have with a Bit.Trip game and has by far the most forgiving learning curve in the series, this belongs in every platform gaming fans' library!

This games a really fun casual game. Its great to play sitting back from the screen with a controller. Its a really fast paced side scroller kind of game where you have to collect things and dodge other things. Its similar to Sonic, but still really different. The different things you do in the game make sounds that go with the music, and the music isn't bad or annoying like some games. This is a good game to play taking turns with friends. I recommend it!

Future Legend picks up beautifully where the original Bit Trip Runner leaves off. It has you playing as CommanderVideo, jumping, blocking and springjumping his way across 5 different worlds to escape back to his crew.

The game expands wonderfully on the original, with different playable characters, costumes, challenges, bonuses, dance combos, the lot. It looks better, it controls better and it feels better.

Nor does the game ramp up towards the end arbitrarily, but instead puts difficulty into the game thematically.

Really super fun, completed each level on hardest difficulty within 7 hours. Check this game out!
