Good game, not for just anyone though

Dark Dragoness, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a unique game. a Musical shooter with little actual story, but fun to play if you like music, rhythm and unusually beautiful graphics. It's beautiful though, and later levels are stuningly pretty both visually and musically. This game can be thought of as boring though, by alot of people, for it's lack of plot, and redundant gameplay. It also seems to take a while to adjust to the camera. As for overall gameplay, it's enjoyable, pretty and interesting.

Excellent, but NOT a music game.

  • Summary: This is an excellent game -- everything you read in the five-star reviews is true: the graphics are stunning, the gameplay is fun, and it's even fun to watch someone else play. My only warning to you is this: do NOT expect a music game like Frequency or Amplitude. Rez is really just a shooter. The musical part of the game is merely an interesting feature, not the game's central theme.

Good game...worth trying

  • Summary: Putting aside the evangelical opinions people have stated about this game. Let's look at the pros and cons. Pro. Innovative style and feel, not another clone of a game. Ease of game play (No need to invest a large chunk of time getting up to speed). Smooth and rythmic play allows for a very immersive experience. Con. Over quickly.

Another under-appreciated Sega title

  • Summary: Being a fan of music games, especially the now-infamous Dance Dance Revolution, I jump at the chance of a completely unique game featuring techno-style music. I also have loved Sega's entries into the video game hall of fame, even though most of the titles are harshly under-appreciated. This title combines the two pseudo-genres - an under-appreciated sega unique music title. First off, I think this game is the best argument that game creation is a form of digital art.

A 3D on the rails shooter whilst going in time with the music!

Dragonlord, amazon.co.uk
28 May 2009
  • Summary: This game is best played on a large tv. You need very quick reflexes to complete the last level. This game is simple but fun and very intense. The way the graphics look and change you think you are on drugs. I love the way the music changes with the rhythm and accuracy of your shooting. This game is very rare and considered a classic. It's a bit short and because it's different in a strange way not to everybodys taste. Think long and hard before you buy.

  • 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. Anyone who has ever played any of the old Star Fox or Panzer Dragoon games will be familiar with what an on the rails shooter entails, you view your character from behind ...
  • Pros: Breathtaking graphics and  an awe - inspiring soundtrack .
  • Cons: Slightly limited gameplay .

Like a fine wine, gets better with age

  • Summary: Rez, like Ico, has quickly become one of those cult games that everyone is clammering to get their hands on. Like the works of a great art master, only now the game has become difficult to track down do the public appreciate it for the genius it is. Check through the bargain bins and you'll find many a EA sports sim, or the last 'allegedly great' ubergame (Killzone, Driv3r ...) languishing in their rightful places.

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. The enemies ...
  • 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. For someone like me who enjoys games, but not enough to play for 5 hours a day, it made a difference to be able ...
  • Pros: simple controls, fairly easy to master
  • Cons: fairly easy to master
