A Very Unique Game

This game is different from many other action games out there. The level design is unique and the game has an odd soundtrack. At the beginning of the game you don't start out with that many moves but there are certain points in the game where you can buy a variety of new moves and abilities using "plasm". Most of the time you earn "plasm" by killing enemies. Throughout the game you will be able to change between three different forms. Theres the human form where you can hack and slash your way through enemies with your sword, a gun form so you can shoot things, and a stealth form that allows you to turn invisible and climb certain types of walls and also looks like a cross between a mantis and a gecko. The game is pretty fun and I think the fighting element of the game was very well done. You will even have this move where you can freeze time and attack multiple enemies at once. But after you beat the game once there's not much replayability. Don't buy it. Rent it.

to clear things up i am not older than 18 my mom set up this account but now that that is out of the way alter echo brilliant concept changing forms was cool that sort of thing but i found the graphics and the general combat to be kind of repetitive with so few moves available to you in the first place it was kind a dull i did like the rhythmic quality of the game it was fun i am not revealing where and its not like amplitude or anything but it takes timing characters were fun and a lot of it was cool hopefully the developers will make a sequel and fix the problems all in all if your trying to break out of the generic games in the action genre then alter echo is for you if you want a game that is so amazing that you will be captivated for a month and beat it over and over look elsewere
