Excerpt: Echochrome can be quickly described as M.C. Escher , the game. It's a puzzle game that really forces you to think in a whole new dimension, and can be either a source of immense puzzle-solving pleasure, or frustration, depending on how patient you are. When it comes to graphics, you can't get much more basic than this game. Everything is in black and white (I don't mean shades of gray, just black and white). Everything is simple and clean line art.
Excerpt: As a game reviewer I see many games that are very derivative or are outright knock-offs of other games. Even entire genres often give birth to one indistinguishable game clone after another – a problem that seems to be especially rampant among puzzle games. However, sometimes a game comes along that is so original and creative that it completely captures your attention and makes you wonder why it wasn't done before. echochrome is just such a game.
Excerpt: Some of the simplest puzzle games have gone down in history as being some of the best. You don't necessarily have to have a puzzle game be riddled with intricacies in order for it to be fresh and new. Sony has taken the idea of simplicity to an all new level with Echochrome, and in turn have churned out one of the best puzzle games this generation will see.
Conclusion: I've spent the past three nights with echochrome, and I'm really enjoying it. I have yet to really find anything about it that irks me. I love the original idea, the execution, the packaging (fifty-six maps, plenty of free new ones, level editor), the cost (just $9.99!), and the simple fact that this game is incredibly fun, addictive, and satisfying. Furthermore, anyone can pick it up and play in minutes.
Summary: De serie God of War loopt hand in hand met het handelsmerk PlayStation. Na twee delen op de PlayStation 2 maakt Kratos, een gevreesd Spartaans veldheer, een korte tussenstop op Sonyâ€™s handheld, de PlayStation Portable. God of War: Chains of Olypmus zou volgens Sony en Ready at Dawn Studios een volwaardig deel moeten zijn in de God of War-serie.
