Summary: This game is in a category in its own. I believe that it is to be on a CDR and that it contains mainy different versions for different locales. I have my PS2 set to German and the game was completely in german. This very unusual for games that are for the NTSC/US crowd. On to the game play. This game is similar to tetris in many ways: 1. It is replayable 2. Its easy to start and learn how to play 3. Its really addictive 4.
Summary: Rez is an oddity in the gaming world. Partially a simplistic shooter and partially a complex musical, visual journey, the game draws you in with a simple premise and a addicting style of gameplay. It has a retro sensibility with a shiny polished execution that makes it look and sound great. The idea of Rez is simple. A virus of some kind is invading a computer system and it's your job to analyze the infection, hunt it down, and destroy it.
Summary: This game reminds me of some of the effects used in the movie Lawn Mower Man. If you like looking at fractals and listening to trance music you will enjoy this game. The game environment gently pulsates with the music while you float through the levels at different perspectives. While floating through the environment you employ a multiple lock-on targeting system that's similar to the classic AfterBurner game.
Summary: Not your ordinary shooter game. I got this game only a day ago and It is exactly what I was looking for. I knew there was something like this out there. Hard to find a lot of information about this game in the local retail stores but there were some really good reviews here on the Amazon site. I usually do not review items I buy, but this one definately warrants a few minutes of my time. The game play is simple.
Summary: Words cannot describe this game. I could end the review there but instead I'll try. Rez is the shooter sequel to Space Channel 5, wherin you navigate the inside of a Network as a polygonal avatar, destroying enemies in an attempt to bypass security and hack a sort of confused Master Control kind of program in a trippy philosophical 3D flying adventure.
Summary: The game is one of the best ever made, but I wish that I have gotten it in its original packaging. The one that I received from VideoGamesDiva Amazon seller was more like a copied version, but it still works exactly the same.
Summary: If you like trance/electronica music even a little bit, you really should give Rez a try. The gameplay is engaging, frenetic without becoming unmanageable, and the music integration still gives me goosebumps when I play. Keep in mind that the notice when you boot the game should be taken seriously. It helps the game immensely to have an 'ideal listening environment' because music is such a big part of the experience.
Summary: Wasn't sure what to expect when I bought this game off a Japanese Import website. Apparantely, the Japanese version is much more plentiful than the American one. But I was quite happy. I have not gotten very far into the game, but I would say if you enjoy quirky shooters, as I do, than buy this game. Nobody that I can see has mentioned the optinal controller only available through import sites, and the Big E bidding site.
