While I only played for several minutes, I found this game played exactly like BIT.TRIP RUNNER, except with noticeably better graphics.

20150510:
Today I played a lot more of BIT.TRIP Presents Runner2, almost getting a Perfect with Bullseye for every level in World 1 on the Just Right (Medium) difficulty.


Thoughts:
Pros:
+ Lots of replayability (three difficulties: Easy/Medium/Hard).
+ Lots of unlockables.
+ Lots of goals to meet (goes into the replayability).

Neutral:
~ Repeating a level just to get all the gold or due to some stupid mistake can be aggravating. It can be part of the fun.


Cons:
- Sometimes there's too much going on. Maybe the game is intentionally trying to be distracting?

Recommendation:
BIT.TRIP RUNNER and BIT.TRIP Presents Runner2 are solid platforming games but the repetition required to finish a level, let alone perfectly complete a level can be frustrating. 100% Completionists should especially be wary.
