    Completely unengaging. Sure, it looks nice, it has some trippy songs. But the gameplay is utter rubbish. Lock on and fire while going down a track. Take away the artsy look and we'd see what the game really deserves. Instead we have people trying to overate this in the attempt at helping the "Games as art argument" ...the only reedeming feature is it's price.

  1. Rez HD hits a rhythm that feels absolutely right for those willing to try something perpetually new, no matter what year it actually debuted. [Feb 2008, p.74]

    There's simply nothing else like it on Xbox 360 or Xbox Live Arcade. The improved visuals are indeed pretty and though the new additions may be minimal, the game was pretty darn good without them.

    In HD, true synaesthesia has been achieved. Rez HD is one of the best games ever made, it costs around $10, and you don't even need to leave the house to get it. In over a decade of critiquing games I've never felt the need to say these words in a review until now: Just buy it.
