    This is by far the best PSN game on the market and front runner for Downloadable Game of the Year.

    Back in early 2007 when Sony first showed off echochrome I knew at that moment they had something really special in their possession. I had this game as my most anticipated game of 2007 (even ahead of...

    An innovative title with an interesting control scheme and a gimmick that doesn't get old.

    An interesting premise falls behind with some questionable design choices and a system that breaks its own rules

    Rated on June 13, 2008 by Gamakarmica

    When previewed at GDC, echochrome gained a lot of attention with not only its simplistic style but it's hard to explain puzzle based gameplay. Although some puzzles are brilliant in execution and the ...
