PixelJunk Eden

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: Looking at various game related message boards, I've noticed PixelJunk Eden being treated as something of a religious experience by some players. The attention is well-deserved, primarily because it is a radically different experience, but like Scientology, it was something that I was interested in, but couldn't get into. Eden 's defining feature is its presentation. The visuals are a cross between Patapon , an iPod ad and trippy digital art.

Clever but challenging game is a treat for players' senses.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is about ascending a growing garden as a bug that swings on silky thread. Play involves using pollen to grow plants that will provide new purchase, helping the bug to reach higher areas and collect items called "spectra." A beautiful mixture of color and sound, there is nothing in the game that might realistically be considered offensive or mature. It is, however, quite difficult, thanks to an unforgiving timer.

PixelJunk Eden

The Gamers Temple

  • Excerpt: Pixel Junk Eden can be described as a game in which you play as a bug who must pollinate a garden to make it grow. While this description is technically correct, it doesn't do the game any justice - conjured images of a cutesy platformer featuring a cartoon bee and smiling flowers couldn't be mush farther than the truth. Surreal and ethereal are better adjectives to use in describing the game than cute or derivative.

  • Excerpt: With a style all its own, PixelJunk Eden is as bizarre as it is unique. Taking a visual cue from other artistic games like Flow and Loco-Roco, Eden’s quirky manner looks to be another example of games doing double duty as art. Fertilized with intuitive gameplay, does this garden grow on the player? You’ll start out in Eden’s main area, which serves as a hub between each of the 10 highly themed and colorful gardens.

  • Excerpt: Since the release of the PlayStation 3 Sony have done a very good job introducing original titles to the PSN. So far, Q-Games have been one of the best developers releasing two PixelJunk games: PixelJunk Racers and PixelJunk Monsters ; the latter being one of the best downloadable titles on the system. Now, the third game in the series, PixelJunk Eden , has arrived on the PSN bringing yet another style of unique gameplay.

  • Conclusion: PixelJunk Eden must surely be at least a small approximation of what an abusive relationship is like. You'll be beaten and angered so many times you'll lose count, but you'll keep coming back, again and again and again and again and...

GameSpot
4 August 2008
  • Summary: PixelJunk Eden is beautiful and serene, until an impatient clock mixes far too much stress into this otherwise leisurely game.
  • Pros: Gorgeous visuals, Swinging around is a blast, Good length, Can upload clips directly to YouTube
  • Cons: Suffocating clock, Replaying levels is a drag, Cooperative play is fatally flawed

PixelJunk Eden [PlayStation Network]

gamervision.com
1 August 2008
  • Excerpt: Name: PixelJunk Eden Genre: Platformer Platform: PlayStation Network Forget everything you know about PixelJunk series, this game has nothing to do with either a group of cars racing or a whole bunch of monsters. In fact, Pixeljunk Eden doesn’t really have anything to do with anything, and very little about this game can be compared to any other.
