Datura

Strategy Informer
4 June 2012
  • Conclusion: Reasonably solid Move implementation will appeal to those desperate to try to justify a purchase of the hardware, but nobody else should bother with it. A couple of good ideas (like the way you have to move the controller up to glance at the map, a la Far Cry 2) don't warrant spending money on a...

Datura (PS3) - Review

VGChartz
20 May 2012
  • Excerpt: What's going on? Where am I? Who's that? What am I supposed to do? What's that? How do I do that? What the hell is that?! Datura is a game of many questions, not quite as many answers, and even fewer satisfying ones.

Expert Review

  • Conclusion: As a family of plants, Datura has been used for centuries as a poison and hallucinogen. With effects such as being unable to differentiate reality from fantasy, it has often been used with the intention of bringing about some form of delirium.

Datura (PS3)

EL33TONLINE
14 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Datura is a PlayStation Network exclusive from Polish developer Plastic and Sony Santa Monica. Costing just R75, it’s a short-lived experience with little replay value but should appeal to people who enjoy PSN titles such as Flower and Journey that focus on having an emotional impact on the player...

Datura

D+PAD
13 May 2012
  • Conclusion: This very much makes Datura a game of two halves; on the one hand it’s imaginative, beautifully rendered, and strives for a rare degree of uniqueness. On the other, it’s an experience marred by mechanical shortcomings and over-ambition, with Move implementation that frustrates as much as it inspires...

7 May 2012
  • Excerpt: Plastic, the developers behind Datura, have their roots in the demoscene, where digital, whacked-out audio-visual hallucinations mark a group’s talent. Like Plastic’s earlier PSN art-piece, Linger in Shadows, Datura hints at the unusual at every turn.

Datura Review | Tech Demotional

Dealspwn
11 May 2012
  • Conclusion: The Short Version: Datura comes over as something of a glorified tech demo. It looks gorgeous, and the visual and aural aesthetics do a good job of creating atmosphere, but there's little to actually enjoy.
  • Pros: Atmospheric environment, Looks lovely, Solid Move implementation
  • Cons: But nothing particularly new, Moral choices have no impact, Ultimately forgettable

Datura

5 December 2012
  • Summary: Datura se veut particulier et c’est bien le cas, véritable OVNI ! Certains succomberont sans problème à son charme incontestable tandis que d’autres regretteront le manque de cohérence et de fil conducteur tout au long de l’aventure.
  • Pros: Son ambiance, Son mystère préservé du début à la fin, Ses actions diverses et variées, Son manque de cohérence et de fil conducteur, Progression et flashbacks troublants, Son prix
  • Cons: Sa durée de vie, Progression et flashbacks troublants, Son manque de cohérence et de fil conducteur

Test : Datura (PSN)

Gamekult.com
6 October 2012
  • Excerpt: La DualShock classique n'est pas exclue, mais la reconnaissance de mouvement au Sixaxis et les déplacements comme la gestion de la caméra aux sticks se révèlent vite assez bancals.
  • Pros: Des passages bien psychédéliques, Les embranchements multiples, Le cochon
  • Cons: Maniabilité bancale, Court mais poussif, Pas impressionnant techniquement, Aucune vraie énigme, Le côté fourre-tout, Une démo technique au prix "fort", Le pied de biche
