This is by far the most unique thing i've ever played on PS3. Before I even get started, there is a long warning for epilepsy at the beginning of the game. If you or anyone you know has seizures from flashing lights, you should stay as far away from this game as possible. plain and simple.
For the rest of us, this game is a real treat. It is highly under appreciated, I feel as though I should explain why its so unique. For one, this game was created by a Genius with a capital G. Tetsuya Mizuguchi is a masterful creator of truly original games. That should be covered before the pro's and con's. Now, why I like this game, and what to consider:
Pros: graphics, graphics, graphics. This pushes the blu ray technology to new boundries I never even knew existed. Please keep in mind this game was designed for dual motion control and 3d action. It is compatible, but to get 100% from the games true potential you need the motion control and 3d television (which-as we know-costs a fortune). Although I had neither of these things, this game blew me away from the very first second, with a regular controller and a regular HDTV.
Cons: Fast pace, dizzying fractals. To be totally honest, this game can be disorienting even for those with no history of motion sickness or epilepsy. I've never gotten motion sickness or had seizures from anything, but this game pushes your eyes and your reflexes far and fast. Which is why, for everyone's enjoyment, I suggest you take in this game in small to medium doses.
The game is best enjoyed one level at a time, with at least 15-30 min breaks in between each level. not only does it savor the experience and the graphics that way, but you'll keep enjoying it for a long time, without getting sore eyes or hands. I play one level per day, and it's the most beautiful game I've ever played on PS3.
You owe yourself a look at the trailer if your even mildly interested. it's truly unique, I strongly suggest you buy this one.

I love this game! It has a feel of the old PS1 game N2O Nitrous Oxide, but more chaotic and with better graphics. If you played N2O and liked it, you will love Child of Eden. It is fast paced and blinding with colors. Some of my friends could only play for a bit before getting a headache, but I can play for hours straight with no problems. This game is definitely worth checking out because there are very few games like it.
I have been hesitant to play this game since it came out. After a good hour with it I can say that the interactive visual and the Trance music experience is amazing. The story was ok and the calibrations were awkward. Overall it a fun game for those who want to get away from shooting-to-kill games.
