A truly unique sensory experience

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.

Since these types of fantasy world games are quite appealing to me this really says something. all the flashing lights and quickly moving seens made me puke, and gave me a splitting headache. When I did manage to overlook all of that stuff the controls were super sensitive. It is really hard to explain how complicated the story line is, uhhhh, something about a dying girl or something like that and you dissapear into a computer- I just cant follow it at all and to me the story line is very important to a games appeal. i would not recommend this game to anyone- esspecially epileptics. btw i have been a member since last december. its different on the profile or whatever its called.

The premise of this game is to save a girl named Lumi in the future. She is digital girl and is stuck in the internet which is now called Eden. You have to save her by destroying viruses and cleaning Eden. The good is that there is a lot of color and some good sound. The bad is that after third or fourth screen you are like why I am I playing this game. The screens are fast and if you get sick during car rides or roller coasters, this game is not for you. There is a warning in the beginning about epilepsy. This is seen in a lot of the newer games. I think this is the first game that epilepsy is a real concern. I know people who have epilepsy and the flashing lights of this game would definitely have them in seizures. The poor play and redundant action or lack there of makes me say this is a game to pass over.
