  • Summary: Auditorium is really all about the experience, both visually and aurally. There are no instructions to teach you how to play. The game is about exploration and discovery. Each level is a unique puzzle with several possible solutions. You play the game by manipulating "the Flow," a constant stream of moving particles of light and sound. The goal is to manipulate various controls in order to guide the Flow into Audio Containers. As you fill the containers, light transforms into sound. Given enough light, the containers will begin to sing together in a symphony, providing the ultimate Harmony of Flow. Expand

    If you're a fan of avant-garde games like the aforementioned duo by thatgamecompany, then $10 is a small price to pay for the great experience that Cipher Prime has unleashed on console gamers.

    The style of gameplay may not be for everyone, but Auditorium HD may be pretty close to the perfect example of its genre.

    Auditorium HD is a visual and auditory puzzler that taps into the wonderment of discovery. Sure, it's not much to look at from the outside, but once I delved into it, I was captivated.

    Auditorium HD is as pure a game as we've seen on the PlayStation Network: a beautiful, well measured game that's confident in its own concept enough to play off a single idea throughout every level it offers. A little bit raw around the edges, but a wonderful game.

    Auditorium HD isn't going to win any awards for originality or grab the attention of a slew of gamers, but if you like games that blur the line of art and videogames like Flow/Flower then Auditorium HD will fill the bill just nicely.

    With its strict linearity preventing you from trying out songs in the order of your choosing, it's a little too easy to get snagged on one in particular. Without even basic hints on offer, you can end up faffing around to no effect for ages.
  7. An acquired taste. [Feb 2011, p.86]
