Child of Eden Xbox 360 ReviewPosted on 2011-06-26 11:11:14 by Thomas De Maesschalck
One of the most loved games on the PS2 and Dreamcast system was Rez. Re-released recently on Xbox Live arcade, Rez was one of the first games to try and combine the rhythm of music with the interactivity of gaming and it became a massive commercial hit. For years gamers have clamoured for Mizuguchi to create a sequel to Rez, but he never has. Possibly because the system it was born on, the Dreamcast, was not a successful console.
However, almost a decade later he is back with Child of Eden and just like Rez, it brings to the table an incredibly unique experience that is almost difficult to call a game in the true sense of the word. Child of Eden has you as the player trying to rescue a young girl named Lumi, trapped inside the internet sometime in the future. You do this by taking out virus materials within the systems of the game and that's about it. Child of Eden is not a game that has a strong storyline, but as you will discover as you play it, the focus is on other areas.
