Game Overview

People say:


It's always good to have a few really fun two-player games in your collection. This way when your pals come over and want to play some games, they don't have to sit there and watch you play an RPG or some-thing-it's just not as fun to watch. Grid Runner is a great addition to anyone's collection as a two-player game. As a one-player game, it's pretty good too. The graphics are a little jagged at times but the ground warping is a cool effect. What really makes me like this one is the Two-player Mode though. I just really enjoyed running around on the grid as your opponent was after you. I think it's more of a two-player game.


Original and fun? Quite a feat for game companies today. But Virgin has managed that with their Grid Runner. It's a fast-paced action title that's extremely easy to pick up and a bit hard to put down. The object? Basically, it's tag meets capture the flag. The (human) Two-player Mode is the best, though the way the game is set up, you'll have to steal all the flags from your opponent to win. Therefore, some long, drawn-out battles can occur when two people are equally skilled and stealing back and forth from each other. This prevents close games. Also, sometimes the action is too furious, which leads to some confusion.


Who'd have thought a video-game version of tag could be so much fun? From the second you fire up Grid Runner, you're caught up in a fast-paced chase that-depending on the skill of your opponent-can last anywhere from one to 10 minutes. And your ability to teleport, drop mines and hurl spells at your opponent adds a tad of strategy to the pursuit. The one-player game is decent enough, but it's Grid Runner's two-player, Split-screen Mode that gamers will probably play most. The only problem is your runners get a bit tiny-and hard to see-in the Two-player Mode. The graphics move kinda' jerky, too.


If you are info two-player arena battling, Grid Runner is your game. Players will find the graphic really crisp and the action smooth and fast-moving. Although there are many key elements to this title that are apparent as soon as the game is sparked up, players will find the most enjoyment hunting out their friend and blasting him back to the Dark Ages. The story's plot isn't anything great, but it does suffice to get the players in the ring and make them start searching out each other on the network of grids in the stages. Many close friendships could easily be destroyed by this title.
