The "Project K" Network has recently been upgraded to handle the rapid expansion of the information age and the core, known as "Eden," holds the most advanced artificial intelligence the world has ever seen. Unfortunately, Eden cannot handle the ability to create her own thoughts and buckles under the pressure in an existential breakdown. She is lost deep inside the system, and you're the only one that can bring her back online, saving the world from utter chaos. [Sega] Expand

    The Dual Shock 2 is kicking out vibes that will make you drop it if you don’t hold on tight. [Feb 2002, p.113]
  3. I've discovered it’s pretty much impossible to sit still and play this game at the same time.
  4. Rez is mindless, simple fun - with the emphasis on fun. If you don't blow out your eyes on this one, you're sure to blow out your thumbs.
  5. The music falls into the techno category, but it’s very bland until you start destroying enemies.

    Something that really bothered me was the fact that the player’s field of view is limited to about 150 degrees throughout the duration of the levels while the boss battles were in 360 degrees. That means that not only could you not move, you aren’t able to look behind you and shoot objects that have happened to pass by you.
  7. Depth is definitely one of Rez's shortcomings, and sadly, it shows.

What surprises most about Rez is that the soundtrack, perhaps because it’s so deeply entwined in the experience, hasn’t aged a day. If you were to stumble across Rez for the first time today, you’d be forgiven for thinking that it’s an entirely new game. Expand

So what we've got here? not a bad game either, it combines an ok gameplay with an interesting way wich combines game with music. And that's very creative, you do music by killing enemies. A shame you don't get rewarded for that, you can only enjoy the posibilitie. Don't believe the hype, you'll see a good game with trance music you can like or dislike, but to appreciate the way yo do music while playing. It's also easy and short, very minor flaws by the way. Get this fair note as i reviewed tons of games everywhere. Expand
