  1. Linger in Shadows comes with a handful of trophies; some are easy to acquire while others will require you to play the movie numerous times and dig very deep into the inner workings of this project.
  2. The demo costs you almost three Euro and takes only 100 MB of your PS3's memory capacity. If the price is okay or not, everybody has to decide on his or her own. I appreciate the try to realize such a project on the console and also Sony's support for it. Hopefully, it is not the last demo-project on the console.
  3. Gamers need not apply. This one is for the arty folk out there. Add five points to the final score if you fit into that category.
  4. There was huge scope for something here, but we can't help shake the feeling that someone got involved at the wrong stage and changed what could have been an impressive technical example of the PS3's graphics muscle into a rudimentary, almost insultingly basic joystick tester - as a demo it's great, but would have benefited from remaining a demo. Budbrain Megademo, all is forgiven.

    Linger in Shadows is a hauntingly beautiful, albeit extremely short, demoscene art "game". I think this fact has fallen on blind eyes withLinger in Shadows is a hauntingly beautiful, albeit extremely short, demoscene art "game". I think this fact has fallen on blind eyes with many reviewers here (professional or otherwise). It isn't a demo as in a video game demo, and it's not a game or tech demo of the PS3. If you expect it to be any of these things, you will be confused. Do a Google search for "demoscene" to understand the culture behind this art form. It's a cheap, quick trophy set, and an interesting demoscene project - exactly the things it should be! Expand
