  1. Easily the cleverest game to emerge in some time and making your way through it's intricate innards is one of the most rewarding experiences the PS2 can currently offer. A slice of gaming heaven.
  2. You may have a harder time with all the backtracking, the imprecise jumping and exploration, and the overall large-scale scope of the game. In any case...a solid performer.
  3. Whilst the graphics aren’t exactly the most impressive seen on the PlayStation 2; the gameplay makes up for the lack in looks.

    The highly detailed graphics convincingly portray both might and oppression with a realism that is awesome, encompassing huge caverns, fathomless pits and sudden dead ends.
  5. 80
    Looks like a shooter, but at its heart it’s a mind-busting puzzle game that transcends its own graphical limitations and delivers an intelligent gamer’s paradise.
  6. It’s somewhat remarkable then that Project Eden not only offers an update to the genre, but also takes it to the next level with tons of challenging environmental puzzles, amazing graphics, and not one, but four lead characters.
  7. 78
    As far as style of gameplay, think "ICO," but without the atmospherics. It's similarly puzzle-intensive, and takes the cooperative aspects of ICO's design to an entirely new level.
  8. Project Eden's superior blend of squad-based gameplay, ingenious puzzles, clever level design, and multiplayer modes creates an action-adventure game that challenges your brain more than your trigger finger.
  9. The game has an undeniably amazing world to take part in, and I never once stopped marveling at it from start to finish.

A co-op experience unlike any other, it rewards teamwork and lateral thinking. The game feels like it may benefit from PC controls but I had no problem adjusting to its control scheme, which can take place in either third or first-person view points. I'd say the game being multiplayer is core to the experience although there is enjoyment to be had in single player so long as you've got your thinking cap on. Full Review »

    This is one of the best games I have played. I will admit, I didn't understand this game one bit when I bought it and it ended up This is one of the best games I have played. I will admit, I didn't understand this game one bit when I bought it and it ended up sitting on my shelf for almost a year collecting dust. Last year (04) I started to play the game and after lending my time to it, got to understand what the game was about. It is my favorite game now, though I still have not beat it. I'm on level 9 out of 11. This game did it for me and all I can say is once you've given this game some time, all you will want is time for the game. lol Full Review »
