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.

    The Dual Shock 2 is kicking out vibes that will make you drop it if you don’t hold on tight. [Feb 2002, p.113]
  3. I've discovered it’s pretty much impossible to sit still and play this game at the same time.
  4. Rez is mindless, simple fun - with the emphasis on fun. If you don't blow out your eyes on this one, you're sure to blow out your thumbs.
  5. The music falls into the techno category, but it’s very bland until you start destroying enemies.

    Something that really bothered me was the fact that the player’s field of view is limited to about 150 degrees throughout the duration of the levels while the boss battles were in 360 degrees. That means that not only could you not move, you aren’t able to look behind you and shoot objects that have happened to pass by you.
  7. Depth is definitely one of Rez's shortcomings, and sadly, it shows.

    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 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
