Postcard Review: Rez

(Editor’s note: In the Postcard Review, members of the Pixelitis staff write small, easily digestible reviews big enough to ‘fit on a postcard’ – hence the title. It can be about the whole experience or just a small piece of the pie. No scores needed.)

"When a game carries the label “experimental” it can potentially doom itself in sales.

Players seem to generally gravitate towards the familiar, but experimental games break boundaries and explore what games can accomplish as an art form. So where does this place Rez? Is it an arthouse game that belongs in the MOMA? Or is it an overlooked gem that challenged commercial expectations with grace and gall?"

-- Stephen Hilger (PS2, Retro, REZ)
