Vexx
4.5 Star Review  GameZone - Feb 24, 2003

Every developer must have a mascot game. Nintendo has Zelda and Mario. Sony has Sly Cooper and Ratchet & Clank. And Sega has Sonic. Now Acclaim can join the ranks of those developers for making one of the most enjoyable multi-console action/adventure games ever released. Vexx looks predictable. The lead character (named Vexx) is an elf-like character with special claws that enable him to do many incredible things. Five minutes into the game, you're hooked. The camera appears to be a little unstable, but the gameplay is so good that you really don't care.

2 Star Review  GameSpy - Feb 23, 2003

For whatever reason, platformers are a hot commodity right now. Or at least game companies act like they're hot, since they don't always sell terribly well. In any case, Acclaim's latest entry into the venerable genre is called Vexx, and, like many platform heroes, Vexx has sass. That sass, unfortunately, is not enough to raise the PS2 version of Vexx above mediocrity. While Vexx eked out a win on the Xbox, its PlayStation 2 outing is held back by considerably worse graphics, longer load times, and stiffer competition.

4 Star Review  IGN.com - Feb 10, 2003

The platform genre is dying. At least, that's what everyone believes. The truth is, the genre simply has grown stale over the past few years with cookie-cutter revisions of the same ol' junk. But 2002 saw a change as many unique and fun platformers hit the three big consoles. Though Vexx is coming a little late to the party, it's Acclaim's attempt to revitalize a once powerful genre. The question is, do they succeed? Read our full review to find out.
