The ultimate goal is to lead your character through the path from beginning to end, while learning how a variety of different objects can be combined with perspectives, angles and the use of light can be used to help solve the puzzle. Beware … much like echochrome, the possibilities are infinite and there is always more than meets the eye as every person can view each puzzle differently! Expand

    echochrome ii is the next step in a great series of puzzle games. I love the concept and the execution; highly recommended.

    It puts players in a position not seen in most games, entirely proactive and in control of the environment.

    Some of the smartest gameplay available on PS3. [Feb 2011, p.101]

    While Echochrome 2 is essentially a 'one-trick pony', it performs this trick rather well and in doing so becomes one of the few good games available for the PlayStation Move. It may be less compelling than the original but it is no less fun.

    Echochrome 2 follows the path already traced by the prequel. In fact, the result is very similar: a puzzle game supported by a brilliant idea, but with some problems concerning to level design.

    This elegantly presented, shadow-shifting puzzler puts the Move controller to ingenious good use.

    There are lots of puzzles to tackle and there should be plenty to download once folks get their hands on the game, but that doesn't offset the stuff that turned me off.

There is no elevator music it is pretty much the same as the first game. Compared to the original game this one actually has colour and one third of the game is dedicated to puzzles where the blocks are coloured whenever your shadow man steps on the corresponding shadow. You can screw around a hope to stumble upon the solution like the IGN reviewer does or you can actually use your brain and figure out how to do the puzzle quickly. The difficulty is progressive but much like the original there are many ways to complete each puzzle. His idea of breaking the game is actually one of the techniques that are taught to you right in the beginning (that is using the shadows to push your character around). You can kill your character in this game by sandwiching him between a couple of shadows. I would recommend this to anyone with a move being cheaper than most titles and the replayability should keep you busy for a while creating and playing other peoples created levels. Expand

Perhaps something was off on my end but the way it controlled was too sensitive and it didn't convey that feeling of light on a surface as I was inclined to believe but really just sort of a gimmicky control scheme to make it seem different. Not a bad game, Echochrome always has interesting puzzles but if you're looking for a title just for your move, don't drop the cash so quickly. Expand
