    This is the best puzzle game (if not best game) the move has to offer. The IGN review is garbage as usual. 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

    When I saw the commercials and advertisements for this game I was completely convinced it would feel like I was shining a flashlight on a puzzle to help the little mannequin guy do this thing like in the previous title. 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

    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.

    The ideal food for your starving gray matter. by PS Move controller may perhaps seem difficult at first but after a while you will surely get used to it. [Issue#201]
