Product Details


Product Description

From Amazon.ca

Here's the deal: On the forsaken remains of what was once the proud planet called Astara, the villagers of Rockhaven led difficult but peaceful lives until the day the Shadowraith, Dark Yabu, and his minions swept down from the sky. With terrible ferocity and ruthless efficiency they descended upon the townsfolk, enslaving them to work deep in the caves that surrounded their village. Dark Yabu murdered the grandfather of the young Vexx, who managed to slip quietly aboard the enemy's windship. There, locked deep within Yabu's sanctum, was the last pair of Astani Battlegauntlets, which leapt from their chest onto Vexx's outstretched hands, bonding to his arms and giving him special powers. Prepared to meet his destiny, Vexx embarks upon a heroic quest through volcanic islands, desert temples, frozen citadels, and giants' castles, to confront Dark Yabu high atop the Landspire, save his people, and avenge the death of his grandfather.

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it.... but May 12 2004
This is a good game.... good world design, good graffics, but best of all is the aggressive undertones... Vexx is like Mario meets Wolverine... I love the claws, the look and the attitude.
All things concidered though... Amazon is asking $60 Canadian and I got this game at Zellers for $20 Canadian plus tax.

3.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful but absurdly difficult April 23 2004
I love 3rd person games with characters that are cute, but not TOO cute, and offer beautiful environments and inventive play. Vexx is very much that. Maybe not as much so as Starfox Adventures (my all time favorite game), but hey, nobody's perfect.
Problem is, this game is simply too hard. Many serious gamers will see this as a challenge (as I'm sure the author of the walkthrough I have did), but there are limits. Vexx seriously oversteps those limits.
The many environments of play are beautifully done, from the interior of a giant's den (you gotta love romping through grandfather clocks, grand pianos, and bouncing on sofa cushions), to a weird, darkened netherworld where the surfaces move like organic smoke, to pretty Aztec-ish cities and frozen landscapes.
Two things really kill this game dead, though. One is the enormously frustrating camera, which often forces bad perspectives on you that you can't override. And, again, many tasks are just ridiculously hard. Some just go on and on and on and on and on. Get bored or rushed and make one small mistake, and you'll find yourself starting all over. And over. And over. And over.....
I give it 3 stars because it is very entertaining when mearly challenging instead of impossible, beautifully animated, and I like the idea of a cute, pi**ed off little critter thrashing his way to revenge. If it weren't for the camera and some programmer's (seemingly) mad determination to make a nearly impossible game, it would be good for 5.
I got this because it's broadly similar to Starfox Adventures (3rd person critter goes on a multi-world adventure), and if you have similar tastes then get this only if you must have SOMETHING until a new Starfox or something else vaguely similar comes out.

Vexx is the type of game that you can not fully appreciate until you get into some of the later levels. I for one think this games' graphics are great, especially through progressive scan. Awesome character designs and very unique textures. Where this game really shines are the awesome, huge worlds you traverse through. I found myself not being able to wait to see what new world i was going to unlock. Each level has 8-10 goals that you can tackle in any order, making it an extremely non-linear game. One area that this game really shines in is the PUZZLE DESIGN! Some of the puzzles in these levels are INGENIOUS! This game is truly for hardcore platforming fans only, if you can't handle your analog stick to perform precise jumping, crawling or maneuvering, you need to stick to your first person shooters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Gameplay!!!! A MUST BUY! July 12 2003
By A Customer
This game is great! The second I heard of it, I wanted it because it sounded cool... but this game is better than it could be explained. U should buy it here, too, at Amazon because I was searching for almost 2 days trying to find a better price than here, and I couldn't! This game also has great graphics and plot. The game starts where your grandpa was killed by evil invaders of your planet, then u find out that u can gain power to destroy them so that u can hav your peaceful planet back. Like most games under the same genre, u r supposed to collect something that progresses u thru the game in order to beat it. In this case, they are "wraith hearts". If u have played "Jak and Daxtar" for PS2 & liked it, you will like this game. They are similair in the aspect that u r a made up creature trying to save your land by going to other strange and mysterious areas and that there are multiple attack types, such as slashing, shooting, smashing, etc. It is a good game because it can occupy time for u vey well. I also think it is a challenging game, though I am not an "expert gamer". The reason why I think it is challenging is because for each level there are seven hearts to obtain, each having a riddle to solve in the start menu before u can get them. And don't think u can just get them without the riddles and that they are dumb, because sometimes u would have no clue where the hearts could possibly be hidden, or u see it hovering somewhere but u can't get it the way u think u can. Again I just want to say that this game is fun all the way thru and that if your looking for a challenge, this is it. Oh, and if u are wondering why I took a star off, its because some parts of the game take too long and are boring. The rest is fun though.

Basically, if you ever played mario on the N64, you know what this game is going to be like. It's the same type of scenario where you do various things in each level to achieve stars (or hearts in the case of this game). The graphics are cool, but I just became bored due to the dejavue factor. I was dissapointed.
