Great game

B. Fennell, Amazon

  • Summary: I loved Rez on PS2, so I had to play this. Overall it is really great and everything you'd expect as the defacto Rez sequel. Sequel might not be the right word... it is more like the same company made another Rez-like game. I just use the regular controller and feel like this might have been designed more for use with the move controller. The regular controller just feels a little lacking.

  • Summary: A great game to just zone out to and enjoy. Incredible visuals, AMAZING sound effects (especially with surround sound). Definitely a unique experience.

A slept-on gem

Chris Cyrek, Amazon

  • Summary: Did you like Rez? Suck it up, get through the first five minutes of so of this game (which are hugely underwhelming), and you'll find a worthy followup to one of the most unique rail-shooters ever.

Brilliantly made, but too short

  • Summary: The graphics are amazing, and the sound is perfect for the game. And yet, it lacked the ability to keep me playing. I finished it in a day in a half (though on easy difficulty). There are five levels, as well as a bonus level where you simply play until you or your game character drops. Once you beat the game you can view a variety of concept art, change the difficulty, etc, but even this lacks to keep you playing the game again and again.

One of the best 3D PS3 games out there

BeardedBob, Amazon
5 March 2012
  • Summary: Let me start out by saying the best setup to play this game is by using a PS3 Move controller & 3D glasses. The game can be played in 2D, and without the PS3 Move controller, but be aware you'll be missing out on the true experience. Rich morphing visualizations create an engaging experience as you fly/shoot your way through 8-20 minutes levels.

  • Summary: Gameplay Overall is Good (Move Controllers) Works but not as good as i thought, just for hardcore the (dualshock) made a lot more score points that the Move, but like everything pro and cons, example my family enjoyed more the move version.... Visuals are amazing wish they were in HD, but still they're excellent(sometimes not as polished...

My 15 year old nephew loved this

Fire Daniels, Amazon
18 October 2011
  • Summary: Bought this for my nephew, he loved it. It makes me completely queezy to watch. I am not a gamer, it does not seem to bother him. He was excited to have it for the PS3, but recommends some wand sort of thing.

unique game

Johann Puentes, Amazon
18 October 2011
  • Summary: This game is a hybrid between an on-rails shooter and a rhythm game. The graphics are excellent both on a technical and artistic level. However, it is the music and the synchronized gameplay is what keeps you coming for more: that is the unique experience! The game only has 5 levels and an extra level. It is really short! And thus, only 4 stars. A lot of repetition is required to Master each level, but one can get through them in 1 or 2 tries.

Delightful audio and visuals

P. Webb "Trajedi", Amazon
18 October 2011
  • Summary: Yes it basically is REZ 2. We get HD graphics new terrific music and a controller that matches the gameplay perfectly. There are only a few levels and like REZ you can play in free mode. There are lots of unlockables and levels require repeated playthroughs. I couldn't get this game to play at all correctly at first but I put my camera below my TV instead of on top and switched the controls to TYPE B which allow you to lock on with a button instead of flicking, and with...

My eyes are full of stars!

Kellen Peterson, Amazon
18 October 2011
  • Summary: Child of Eden is the spiritual successor to the extremely trippy and spacial game Rez. Its an incredibly unique game that feels alternately like a bold artistic statement, a retro-style rail shooter, and a mushroom trip. After a very beautiful CGI/Live-Action intro movie setting up the single-paragraph story, you're dropped into a discombobulating tube of tetrahedrons, worm-like crystalline entities, and pulsing electronic music.
