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.
it is a game to avoid.

Another on-the-rails shooter for Playstation Move

On another note, the way the developers have set up the calibration for the move controller is entirely too sluggish to keep up with the maddening pace of blowing up hundreds of dazzling objects flying at your screen.
This game had the potential to be a great title, but it looks like Ubisoft made a Ubiflop once again
Not as good as Rez

Also, unlike Rez this game doesn't work well with a regular controller. Some of the projectiles are just ridiculous, they were definitely designed with the dexterity that Move allows. This is a good rental though because the soundtrack is amazing. There are only 5 stages but you'll have to replay them several times and won't mind it a bit.

Some fun, much frustration

The first 'level' was fun, but other levels do not open up until you get 5 stars (for perfect gameplay) on thecurrent one.
All in all, much promise followed with a kick in the groin.

These kinds of games are never truly appreciated until years later. This genre is extremely shallow with few-and-far-between games as it is, end even less that are actually good or worth playing.
This IS one of those good games. But, there's a reason why it's received better on the 360 than PS3. The Move controller is good, but probably not as good as Kinect for THIS kind of game specifically. I enjoyed the gameplay (although your shoulder will hurt before the end of the first level) and the graphics and music are all good too.
Something about the game never pulled me in though. It reminds me of those Arcade Machines you play just because you have extra coins and have already played the other stuff. It's not bad in any way, but never makes you desire playing it again right away.
It's good for what it is, but it's not meant for anyone who isn't already a fan of Rez, Frequency, Amplitude and so on.
thank you gamefly
