Child of Eden
This game is "the" Kinect shooter
I really love playing this game, whether I'm using the controller or Kinect (though I'm better with Kinect). It has amazing graphics & music, & it's a great experience to play through all of it to get the Lumi's Garden rewards, I like those. ^=^
Quickly dwindling appeal...
I rushed to the store to buy this.... I went home and played for 5 minutes and it grew tiring..... The first level was 20 minutes long and I couldn't stop dyif and ha to keep restarting. Once I beat that level, i saw that it lacked many features that I was hoping for. It wasn't as immersive as advertised and disappointed me deeply. I want to return it, honestly. I was expecting much more. Also, it is way too difficult to control the camera with kinect and I bought it for use with kinect and the triggers move the scope very oddly. Refining this game a little more would make it way better. I just lost all my appeal and I want to cry. I was so excited. Do not buy unless you want a very time intensive TV screensaver and ambience. The sound wasn't good either. Going to return later. Disappointed, thought I would have a nice time with this but it was honestly terrible. I just am speechless now. Don't advertise the opposite of what you're selling. That's it.
Just like in Rez, you will be sucked into the game straight from the start. The game looks amazing and the synthetic sounds of the destroyed enemies will add to the already amazing background music. If you love rail shooters, rhythm games or pretty lights, then this game is definitely for you. The game is short, though, which is its ONLY flaw. I got the game using a Buy 2 Get 1 Free deal, so it didn't matter for me, but if money is an issue, just wait for the price to go down a bit before getting this amazing game.
Great gaming experience
Was a bit skeptical on this one, but the graphics and overall gaming experience is immaculate. I also love the option to play with the kinect sensor or the xbox 360 controller. Definately glad with this Kinect title!
Epic party game
I bought a kinect because of this game and it was well worth the dough.
Child of Eden(from the creator of Rez) can be compared to the various other psy-shooters available on the arcade, I.E. Rez, Geo Wars Retro Evo AND E4, in terms of trippy visuals, an amazing trancie EDM soundtrack, and solid control system with both controller and kinect.
Visually CoE puts it down so hard it will blow your mind man. If you like intense colors, flashes, pulsing lights, basically raves you'll love CoE.
Boasting the sounds of the games creators band the Genki Rockets CoE delivers an epic soundtrack the evolves as the level progresses similar to GWRE and will not leave you hanging.
Kinect controls leave nothing to be desired once you get the conditions right and can also be played from a sitting position as the player only uses their hands to combat millions of crazy little trippy data bits seeking to corrupt Project Lumi. Veterans of Rez will have no problems with the controller mechanics which flow smooth and evenly(sometimes I'd even go for a controller over the kinect if high scores are the goal).
Another feature that makes this game a great choice is that even though the game only boasts 5 levels those levels change every time you play them providing greater replay value because you are never really playing the same level twice.
All in all this game lands a solid 10 in my book but I do give this warning: It is a short play, $40 for basically an arcade game on roids, you will probably be pressured into buying a kinect by your gamestop dude, don't invite anyone who can have light or sounds based seizures when you play, and if you don't like carzy rail shooters like rez or panzer dragoon you wont like this.
Beautiful and Fun!
The best game to come out for use with Kinect so far! Visually stunning, this shooter also feeds the appetite of your ears with it's amazing music. You can play with a regular controller, but it was designed to be played with Kinect. It's quite simple to play, but can be pretty challenging like most shooters. Basically you have two ways to destroy your targets; your left hand shoots projectiles while your right hand locks on to multiple targets and destroys them at once. If you destroy the targets to the beat of the music, you get more points as well.
intense beautiful awsome fun
getting it i did not think it would fun but its one of my favorite games yes its short but fun P.S. if you have airsoft gun or a play gun (pistol works best) dont load it point it at the screen pull the trigger and it works just as well if you were to flick your wrist!!!! P.S.S. only use anything but a pistol as a final option...
Q! Pleases again! :-)
This looks like a very good game you can play using (or without) the Kinect in an awesome surprise for a game. You can simply use your hands to purify and shoot things. And the visuals are awesome! I can't wait for this to come out.
I saw the announcement for this game while watching E3 and it looks really pretty. It has some nice music and pretty colors. Its graphics look really good too. I'm going to get this game.
I got this the day it came out and i love it the graphics are the best thing about this and the sound a close second,with the controller or Kinect is perfect! The levels are long and keep you busy and even after you beat the level you want to play again.
