Gaming for gaming's sake- Super Powaqatsi Bros World

  • 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).

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Pros: simple controls, fairly easy to master
  • Cons: fairly easy to master

Rez Not Bad, Not Bad At all

alkaiser, Ciao

  • 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.
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • Pros: Full of music,fights,colors,speed .  .  .
  • Cons: gets boring, requires special skills(see op)
