Child of Eden

destructoid.com
2 September 2013
  • Summary: Tetsuya Mizuguchi's Rez is a cult classic, but was never a hit with a mass audience or at retail. That a follow-up was even greenlit by publisher Ubisoft, nearly ten years after the release of the original, is something of a mystery. Well, fans wanted it, and now they have it with Child of Eden . A sequel to Rez in everything but name, Child of Eden is a short-but-sweet journey through five awe-inspiring worlds, and one of the best Kinect-enabled experiences to date.

  • Excerpt: You’ll be done with the main Child of Eden experience in a few short hours. It’s an entertaining evening, and that may not be worth a full purchase for everyone. Here’s the thing: it’s not something you get the chance to play very often. (By our count, we’re getting one about once a decade at this point.) You may just need to pony up the premium for the opportunity.
  • Pros: Immersive audiovisual experience
  • Cons: A bit short, not much gameplay

  • Summary: Save the world of Eden as you entertain your inner-child
  • Pros: visually stimulating; epic music; beautiful woman cast as Lumi; easy to learn PlayStation Move controls; nothing else like it; feels magical; PS3 version includes 3D presentation.
  • Cons: failing at any point in any level will have you restart from beginning; PlayStation 3 graphical presentation not as sharp as on the Xbox 360.

  • Conclusion: Child Of Eden is this year’s only artistically unique rhythm-action experience, despite a relatively short length. The presentation is so rich and imaginative that it flies in the face of every possible trend the industry has right now, and for £20 you should be part of that.

Child of Eden Review (PS3)

20 June 2011
  • Excerpt: When Child of Eden for the Xbox 360 Kinect arrived at my home office in June, I wondered what the game was all about. I literally heard nothing about the game before its release. The conspiracy theorist in me believed the game could not possibly be a winner given the lack of hype. Yet much to my surprise, I was reasonably happy with the game.

  • Summary: The spiritual successor to Rez builds on the core tenants of the first game beautifully, but still feels familiar.
