Gaming for gaming's sake- Super Powaqatsi Bros World

P. Smith "PedroMiguel", Amazon

  • Summary: This game is very refreshing. This game has no pretense of trying to tell a story or even acheiving any type of objective (of course there's a plot to it, but very thin and only found in the instruction booklet). All this game tries to do is get you wrapped up in it's trippy light show TRON inspired world. The gameplay is ridiculously simple. Pass a cursor over enemies as soon as you can, release button, zap enemies. Simple as that.

  • Excerpt: In Rez you take the form of a cyber hacker entering into a sentient computer system known as Eden, in an attempt to reawaken it from the affects of computer virus, or something along those lines, Rez is basically an on the rails shooter so the story isn't of any great importance here.
  • Pros: Breathtaking graphics and  an awe - inspiring soundtrack .
  • Cons: Slightly limited gameplay .

REZ-'The beautiful game'

  • Excerpt: The principle of this game is simple, yet wonderful: your character flies along, shooting down enemies to some simple background music. As more enemies are defeated, the more complex the music becomes, until it is almost copletely unrecognizeable. However, it doesn't stop there. -Story- Your character is really the representation of a hacker, and the environments you fly through are the defense systems of various large computers.
  • Pros: Fantastic pick up and play, just hard enough to be challenging
  • Cons: Occasionally clunky controls, can grow tedious

  • Excerpt: I really liked the way the music is used in this game, you start off Area 1 Level 1 with a few blips and beats and end up with a pounding track in Area 5. It really does add to the playability and to your involvement in the game. Perhaps the best thing about this game is the fact that it only uses 2 controls - one to move, one to fire.
  • Pros: simple controls, fairly easy to master
  • Cons: fairly easy to master

Rez Not Bad, Not Bad At all

alkaiser, Ciao
8 March 2002
  • Excerpt: Concept games usually don't go very far in pleasing me. In general, my experience with games that are supposed to be cool because they look a different way, or have these big new ideas all playing the same...badly. They usually end up feeling like mini-games to me rather than being games. Unfortunately, unlike Incredible Crisis, they don't come with a mini game's price tag.
  • Pros: Interesting concepts in the art and music .
  • Cons: Like most concept games, a bit shallow .  Shooter on a "rail" .

A basic shoot-em-up

  • Summary: For anyone who likes the "Tron" film and it's graphics you are going to love the look of Rez. However if you are a avid gamer then but be aware that it's a very short game and quite easy to finish (4 hours and I'm no great shot!), so I would only recommend it as a Hire rather than a Buy.

Not for Epileptic

  • Excerpt: It is unbelievably incredible that some innovative ideas might lead to create games such as REZ. Moreover unbelievable is the fact that many games make your life a living Hell when you try to place it in a specific product category. Before I write about my op for this game I have to warn you that this game is not recommend it for people who have previous epileptic fits or are suspicious that they are more likely to have!!
  • Pros: Full of music,fights,colors,speed .  .  .
  • Cons: gets boring, requires special skills(see op)
