Review aggregator site Metacritic assigned a score of 90 out of 100 for the PlayStation Vita version[3] and 86 out of 100 for the PlayStation 4 version.[4] Eurogamer's Simon Parkin rated the game an 8/10 saying, "Despite the game's dipped-nose poise, its obsession with speed and clocks, it rewards those who take their time, who perfect their technique on each stage, and who savour an arcade game that's been lovingly embellished and expanded to its full and likely final potential."[1] IGN's Vince Ingenito rated the game 9 out of 10 with the verdict being: "Velocity 2X successfully builds upon the speed of the original with its awesome new side-scrolling sections."[7]
