    .detuned isn’t really a game. The only thing the player can do is use some effects on the music that is playing. The effect is pretty strange, because of the visual style. The concept is original but not everyone can dig this.
  2. Let's get it straight: 99% of the the people who will buy this product won't play it more than twice in the whole PS3 life cycle. To play your favorite mp3s you'll keep on using every other traditional player, and because of the Trophies you'll probably get to see everything .detuned has to offer during your first non-gaming session. This doesn't mean that .detuned is not worthy: some people will surely be deeply fascinated by .theprodukkt's creation to the point of never forgetting it. If you fancy strange and obscure stuff a la David Lynch, don't hesitate: buy this is a weird experiment (along with the more impressive and artsy Linger in Shadows).

    Worth a punt for its paltry asking price. [Issue#186, p.87]

    Currently selling for $2.99 in the US PlayStation Store, that's about a dollar per minute of entertainment. If you have cash to blow and want to see one of the weirdest pieces of software on any system, go for it. Otherwise, just watch our videos and you'll get the point.
  6. As demoscene veterans we we're intrigued to see what .detuned would bring to the table, but seeing as this really only is a fun graphic equalizer we were appalled to see that there isn't a demo mode where the program moves automatically to the players own music. A wasted opportunity.
  7. You cannot criticise for Sony for trying something new by supporting this endeavour, but sadly .detuned only scratches the surface of what may have been possible.

    This game does not make sense, it is simply an app that does take 10 trophies in no time!

I was expecting something similar to Linger in Shadows, unfortunately this has little to compare other than being a demo. I believed this demo would actually let you alter effects in your music in a number of different ways, which it does not. Don't waste your 3 bucks, put it towards Critter Crunch. Expand

Some people say they see art in this, I must aggressively disagree with this statement. Pure, wretched garbage avoid this at all COSTS! I like screwing with my music, but I have other programs to do that with and i'm sure as hell not going to risk seeing that elephant headed dancing moron in the black suit again. Expand
