only technical annoyance I encountered is prevalent throughout -- the load times. Once you're in a level you're good to go with multiple retries, but swapping around worlds and levels features an exhausting wait. Based on what was accomplished in Runner3, the series is far from over. Despite creating two other Runners, Choice Provisions has shown that they're not out of ideas quite yet. Bring on Runner4.
I would generally consider runner games to be a poor choice of port to pick up on a fully fledged console. After all, infinite runners practically choked mobile app stores at one time. Runner 3 is, however, an entirely different type of experience. It takes a simple concept and layers in lots of great little ideas, new environments, and a bunch of vehicles to keep things interesting.
Runner3 is wonderfully creative and funny, relying on a style of play that belies the challenge at its heart. A few moments of unbalanced control or obstacle design can frustrate, but this will pass when Commander Video finally nails a sequence of movements and makes you feel like a fast-fingered expert.
