Excerpt: I don’t think I’ve ever played a game quite as hypnotic as Every Extend Extra Extreme . Even reading the title makes your vision go a little blurry. Initially it’s all a bit confusing and weird, but once you understand what’s being asked of you, you’ll just keep on doing it indefinitely. Every Extend Extra Extreme Every Extend Extra Extreme Every Extend Extra Extreme… E4 – as I’ll refer to it from now on – is quite a simple game really.
Summary: It is definitely not your normal game, but it shows that we are at least getting some better variety on Live Arcade. It is a very stylish and color experience, but it is only really for the hardcore gamers out there that want a semi-causal experience. It is almost as if though the game requires you to completely “get it” for you to enjoy it, and if you don’t completely “get it” your time and 800 points will probably be better spent elsewhere.
Pros: It is stylish, and the way it works with custom music is cool.
Cons: More style than substance, it is kind of an "anti-game".
Excerpt: It’s not easy trying to review a game like Every Extend Extra Extreme (E4). Like Space Giraffe, it’s not about the somewhat traditional gameplay elements; it’s about the way in which the audio and visuals blend together with the gameplay to create an experience rarely found in videogames.
