    An excellent original idea- and likewise an excellent port of the original.

    Not many major differences between this and the Sega Dreamcast version (especially with a component cables hooked up to a fairly decent tv). The image is (from what I hear from crazy Sega fans) apparently not quite as "... Read Full Review

    Fear is the mind killer.

    Good: -Never has a game fused music, visuals, and sound effects together in such a unique way. Describing it in a review doesn't do it justice. A highly ambitious undertaking on the developer's part. -You'll be tapping... Read Full Review

    "i can't describe the experience of rez, with words..."

    rez - review words cannot express the feelings you get from a game like rez. if i try to explain it all logically to you then that would defeat the point of it all. there is no point in reducing the experience of re... Read Full Review

    When I first heard of this game, it sound a little awkward, but I went playing anyway, lucky me!

    You will never see other game like Rez. The game has a strange concept: It is a shooter, but not a regular one. When you shoot and kill an enemy, it does it own sound. Which plays together with the music in the back to d... Read Full Review

    Turn the lights down, turn the sound up and zone out. It's an experience.

    I've watched multiple videos, video reviews and read the articles about RezHD. They all talked about this game being one of the most under appreciated shooters in quite some time and how happy they were to have a port fr... Read Full Review

    Trance-tastic!

    When you think of a video game, you think of pixels on a screen, moving as you move the controls. How bland. How dull. Right before I picked up Rez, I was getting bored with video games. I thought this was just going to ... Read Full Review

    Nothing else is like it - and more things should be like it.

    There's one thing I've sought, in all my gaming elopements: immersion. I sought the unattainable - I wanted to be so completely submerged in a piece of escapism that I would never escape - that I would remain there fore... Read Full Review

    An intense shooter that oozes style.

    Rez brings core gaming fundamentals and builds an incredible feast of gorgeousness for the eyes and ears. It's straight-forward fun with constant action. WHAT'S GOOD? The look. Nothing looks like it. It has a vector ... Read Full Review

    Rez finally comes to XBL Arcade, and boy, is it awesome.

    Take a classic on rails shooter, add some amazing music, and make it unique as hell. Put all those things together and you've got Rez HD. Rez is a game from the golden age of rythm games that included such classics as ... Read Full Review
