The original Vector took the gaming world by storm when it was first released and those who enjoyed the first entry in the series found themselves waiting for its sequel with baited breath. I am happy to report that Vector 2 more than lives up to its prerelease hype, providing an exciting experience for gamers of all skill levels.
The first game was considered to be more in the minimalist vein, but this game aims to add on. The environments are more detailed, the backgrounds are more crisp and the protagonist is no longer being chased by the bad guys.
You’ll need to avoid a series of lasers and bombs in order to stay alive and the horizontal auto scroll makes it easier for you to control your parkour runner. The controls are very easy to master, making the process of learning the game much simpler for those who may not have a strong level of familiarity with the last entry.
You can collect a series of rectangular tokens while running, tokens that are able to spent on a series of helpful upgrades. You will start with a garden variety set of items, including a vest, boots, hat and gloves and as you collect tokens, you can add helpful items to your personal inventory and increase your chances of staying alive over the long haul.
This game has a sizable amount of replay value as well, especially for those who are already familiar with the first entry in the series. It if it is not broke, then there is no need to fix it and this is a mentality that the developers definitely seem to have taken to heart.
The games maintains all of the aspects I enjoyed about the first game and easily held my attention. If you would like to learn more about other games that have earned my seal of approval, take a moment to come back and read some of my other reviews.
