They See Me Running…Infinity Runner WiiU Review

No Gravatardescarga

Imprisoned on the Infinity, the largest space ship ever built by mankind, you are set free by a mysterious woman who has taken it upon herself to guide you on your escape for unknown reasons. As you make your way deeper and deeper into the ship, you’ll slowly learn more about the Infinity’s purpose and where you fit in amongst all the chaos. It is a different approach in the Runner genre since most games are mainy focused on the high scores. Plus you are a werewolf running in space, so enough said.

Infinity Runner’s greatest strength is how unique it is, with a sci-fi story that plays out like a movie. You awaken on a ship, naked and confused, with the voice of a woman telling you to run. And run you must, because everything is trying to kill you. You will soon learn more about your character, the ship, and your strange ability to turn into a werewolf as you go. The game plays like any endless runner would: your character never stops moving. You are restricted primarily to close corridors, and have to make split-second decisions. Most of these decisions involve things like turning before running into a wall, and attacking enemies. Attacking enemies is simple enough; a button prompt appears on screen and you have to press them before a brief timer runs out. These are more deviations than the main gameplay, but they blend in well with the experience. Another important aspect of the gameplay are the “action” sequences. These are usually “Hollywood” style action scenes that once again require quick reflexes. These also help break up the narrow corridor running, and although some scenes get repetitive, it is not something particularly game breaking. Graphically the game looks great. the corridors of the ship and all the elements create a great atmosphere which sets up Infinity Runner as something else among runners.The music also plays an important role, with having a good soundtrack and the voices are acceptable for this.

Bottom Line Infinity Runner is a good endless runner. It does something different with the way it tells its story, has some collectibles to unlock, and the sci-fi vibe creates something different. If you are a fan of the genre, or are into sci-fi stories this is for you, the gameplay is solid and can be fun playing it.
