    It's a shame to see a few features -- particularly multiplayer -- get cut from this version of PixelJunk Eden, but the warp ability, new controls, and restructured pacing more than make up for the loss. This Steam edition is a must-download for new and returning players alike.

    As a game, there's not a lot of challenge to Eden--but as an experience, it's well worth spending time with. [May 2012, p.67]

    PixelJunk Eden delivers an engaging and meaningful experience, immersing you in an alternate reality while jumping from plant to plant, titillated by music and colors, progressively gaining more control over the inertial gameplay. If Q-Games' series always intrigued you, this is certainly an excellent opportunity to make its acquaintance.

    A visually powerful game is so unique in many ways that the mainstream player will probably not enjoy it. It's more of a meditation tool than actual game. [March 2012]

To be honest this category has no name...it's a way of being that goes beyond words. It's visually absorbing you and the gameplay is so unique and in a different reality that I have to urge everybody to at least play thos game once before you die. Only that way the this game reveals itself to you. Words fail at describing the contents of this game i ...JUST DO IT! Full Review »

    Just putting a beautiful visual and electronic music together does not make automatically this a great game. Second PixelJunk game I tried (the other is SideScroller) and no big impressions so far...
