While Velocity 2X deserves merit for blending two different forms of gameplay into one hefty treat, 2X quickly becomes bland after the course of only a few minutes. Yes, you are presented with additional content, but only one of these added pieces of content is enjoyable out of the bunch. The monotony will leave you uninspired, and it’s hard to dedicate time to Velocity 2X when there are better space-shooters out there for the Nintendo Switch.

Velocity 2X is a game I've played for the first time in 2018, and I'm sort of ashamed. This is one of the finest action games I've played in a while, and every individual piece about it works. Now to be totally clear, I do think it requires a certain mindset to love this game. The one that wants to keep pushing onwards and improving at every step.

In an age where indie titles are becoming increasingly more reliant on procedural generation to do all the heavy lifting, it can be immensely satisfying to play a game that is tailor made for one specific experience. Velocity 2X excels in this regard, offering up an immaculately designed, endlessly replayable arcade experience that shows just how engaging twitch gameplay can be. We would give Velocity 2X a high recommendation, especially to anybody who’s looking for a great pick up and play arcade game for their Switch; this is one you definitely don’t want to miss out on.

Velocity 2X may be four-years-old at this point, but that doesn’t mean that the gameplay has passed its sell-by date. There’s a certain addictive quality to this ultra-fast reaction-based puzzle blaster that can risk making you feel useless at first until something in your brain finally clicks into beast mode. During the time that I spent with the game my fingers slipped, my brain momentarily lapsed, I swore a lot and blamed my age. However, once I did finally submit to the cockpit’s demands, it didn’t take long until I felt like a Jedi on a joyride.

Velocity 2X is a marvellous, quick paced experience with plenty of re-playability, that definitely finds its home on the Nintendo Switch. If you’ve never experienced Velocity 2X before then you are in for a treat. Get it in your (solar) system, now.

It feels really, really good playing Velocity 2X, whether you fly the teleporting spaceship, or run with the teleporting heroine - and all the while a pretty catchy set of tunes bop along. On the… not so bright side, though, the action can get a tad repetitive, and, somehow, this heavy focus on speed-running sort of damages what seems like the groundwork for a much more meatier experience.

Above all else it's the act of simply firing a weapon that's the most fun in Velocity 2X, and when you layer in all of the extra elements on top it just adds to the chaos, which is what Futurlab excels at. It's a great arcade game for anyone who misses the golden age of fixed shooters like Xevious, or those who just love indie bullet hell games like Enter the Gungeon.

Switch owners who never attempted Velocity 2X on Vita or PS4: do yourself a favor and check it out, especially if you enjoy scrolling shooters and/or fast-paced platform action. While some of the storytelling is tonally out of sync or corny, and a few stages outstay their welcome, the majority of the game is fast, fluid, layered, varied, replayable, and attractive. Don't wait another four years to play one of the better indie games on the market.

Muy variado en su acción y con unas mecánicas jugables que enamoran, Velocity 2X es una de esas obras que no deberías dejar escapar a poco que os gusten los shooter de scroll vertical. Tiene un punto de originalidad, un buen trasfondo argumental y un apartado audiovisual de gran calidad. ¿Qué más se puede pedir? Claro, que fuera algo más largo; pero no se puede tener todo en este mundo.

Velocity 2X es un claro ejemplo del posicionamiento que está tomando el catálogo de Switch. Dotar a la consola de los buques insignia de la compañía y, además, de un abanico tan amplio de géneros y títulos de renombre del último lustro, hace que sea imposible decir que no.

A transição entre secções de "shooter" espacial e de plataformas requer alguma habituação no respeitante a controlos, mas esta inclusão introduz alguma diversidade a um género que se supõe formulaico e muito voltado para o seu nicho de mercado, expandindo-o a um público menos veterano mas potencialmente interessado neste tipo de experiências.

Voor gamers die rustig een avondje willen gamen zijn er genoeg andere spellen. Niettemin is het alsnog mogelijk om rustig de levels te spelen en te genieten van de prachtige cutscenes. Het is lang geleden dat wij zo hebben genoten van een simpele game die toch het maximale vraagt qua concentratie. Wij gaan weer verder spelen, “nog één keertje”!
