    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.

    A strange shooter... that reminds me of the movie Tron. I didn't find the environments that interesting, and the gameplay is really quite simple and boring.

  1. In wishing to both typify and exaggerate the visual style of a bygone age, Rez ultimately commits the cardinal sin of placing graphics before gameplay – a facet attributable to SEGA's desire for the title to be seen as art.
  2. It’s the first shooter I’ve played that’s demanded not just my reflexes, but also my intuition. A trip worth taking. [Feb 2002, p.156]
  3. If you're in the mood for something that is decidedly different than other games on the market, Sega's quirky, abstract art-influenced shooter just might fit the bill.
