Critic Reviews for Kinetic Edge

Kinetic Edge feels like its fighting with itself just a little too much. While having more modes makes the initial menu screen a bit more vibrant - like Kinetic Edge's visuals - that vibrance becomes tedious and a little wasted

Even though Kinetic Edge is by no means spectacular, it does achieve what it sets out to do. This is a platformer that is easy to get into, which can be great fun with some friends. Its striking visuals also help differentiate it. Despite its shortcomings, there are more positives than negatives on display. All in all, it is a good game that comfortably justifies its price tag.

There is a lot to like in Kinetic Edge; different modes, tight controls and fun physics. It feels a bit empty right now and it's not perfect, but it certainly has its strong points and plenty of room for improvement.

The issue is only being able to play for short bursts because your eyes hurt. Or because you’re sick of reaching over to the mouse to select a new game mode, even though your controller worked on the main screen. With friends, in short bursts, Kinetic Edge can be fun. But for the most part, it feels like rolling a ball uphill, rather than down: awkward and difficult.

If you’re an old codger like me with fond memories of old 8-bit computer games, picking up a title that evokes those memories so well is a no-brainer. If, as is more likely, you’re a young whippersnapper (I hate you), I still thoroughly recommend Kinetic Edge. It’s a terrific mix of genres that’s great in single player and even better in multiplayer. Get on it.

Fun with what's there, Kinetic Edge needs more.

Kinetic Edge is quite a fun game, with very good handling and a real challenge for players. Its online multiplayer mode is the jewel in the crown and will allow us to face each other in different game modes. In contrast, it has few levels and the camera plays tricks on us.

I enjoyed Kinetic Edge‘s simple premise, amount of content and gameplay loop, but I got beyond annoyed with its presentation. It’s a perfect game to spend a few dozen minutes at a time, though. Pick up a mode, play a few levels, try to beat your scores or defeat other players, and then give your damaged eyeballs a well-deserved rest. I’m also looking forward to an eventual Switch port; this game would fit like a glove in that system.
