Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien oozes personality and style. 

The title for Gaijin’s new game sounds like the super cool, ultra-modernistic title of a Nike trainer released in the not to distant future. The game’s called “Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien.” With a name like that you know Gaijin are aiming for a hip title that can appeal to a wide market. But to achieve that aim, they need to match the cool name with great gameplay and an eye-catching visual style. Do they achieve this?

Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien is a rhythm-based running platform game that forces your brain to think fast and your finger fitness to be at near athletic levels.

You already know (probably) what you have to do in the game: run from one point to another while avoiding obstacles. It’s the classic runner gameplay. What’s new about this one is the amount of stunt-like moves you can perform. You’ll be jumping, springboarding and ducking like a gymnast on a sugar rush.

Gameplay wise Runner 2 is slick and stylish. There are very few games that feel as intuitive and playabe as this. Add to the basic playability a healthy number of alternate pathways and unlockable items and you’ve got a genuinely high quality game.

Even better than the gameplay is the audio and visual production values. The graphics ooze personality. They’re not spectacularly complex or detailed, they’re just very well designed. They remind developers that personal style and flair is the true diadem of game design. And then there’s the audio, which is simply spectacular.

All in all, Runner 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien is a stylish, modernistic and utterly compelling gaming experience.  We’re entering an age of gaming where personality and style is what sets the top games apart from the rest. Gaijin know this and because of it, their games sit proudly among the very best.
