  • Summary: Rez is fast-action shooter that takes you deep into the world's computer network. The "Project K" Network has recently been upgraded to handle the rapid expansion of the information age and the core, known as "Eden," holds the most advanced artificial intelligence the world has ever seen. Unfortunately, Eden cannot handle the ability to create her own thoughts and buckles under the pressure in an existential breakdown. She is lost deep inside the system, and you're the only one that can bring her back online, saving the world from utter chaos. [Sega] Expand

    One of the freshest titles in recent memory in both concept and execution.
  2. One of the most groundbreaking titles around... a truly unique ‘game’ and of the finest Sega created titles ever, one that everybody can play yet it’s individuality will divide gamers into those that love it and those that don’t.
  3. I've discovered it’s pretty much impossible to sit still and play this game at the same time.
  4. A minor masterpiece. [Feb 2002, p.57]
  5. The music falls into the techno category, but it’s very bland until you start destroying enemies.
  6. The music is where the game really rocks. While it won't be for everyone, if you're into trance and techno you'll be in love with the game.
  7. Depth is definitely one of Rez's shortcomings, and sadly, it shows.

    One of the most original and most immersive games it has been my pleasure to play. Cudos!! When added with a trans vibrator this game truly comes alive. Expand

    I can't believe the low reviews this game got. It is so amazing and fresh, I guess most people where not able to appreciate this game the same way that I did. It's a rare gem that is worth looking for. Expand

    This is one of the more original games that i have played. The game is very enjoyable on a whole. You can just pick it up and play whenever.

    This was a sleeper and will always be in my book- Simply one of the most abstract concepts ever brought to life inside of a video game and even though its been years since its release- its one of the few I can still pick out amongst many others. Expand

    Excellent sound, very retro gameplay and graphics and heaps of extras. The best fun you can have on the PS2 currently.

    Whoa. This game is amazing (even better on weed). I love the unique visual style, and the music is excellent (especially levels 4 and 5). Be warned of these things, though: #1. its too short (only 5 levels), #2. its severly lacking in the gameplay department, and #3. since the music plays such an important role in the game, you should definitely have a nice sound system if u want to get the full experience. If you've got the hardware, i say this is a must buy. Expand

    This is by far the worst game I have ever played. I can't believe some of the reviews I'm reading. I was hoping for a Saturday night of fun with this game, but I only got bad graphics and bad controls. Thank Padme that I rented this game first. Expand
