Game Focus: Pixel Junk Eden Review

Game Focus writes: "Q-Games and Sony Japan have released another interesting game which defy a clear place in any one genre and could clearly be given its own genre called 'Puzzle on LSD'. With this being the third Pixel Junk game on the Playstation network, after 'Pixel Junk Monsters' and 'Pixel Junk Monsters Encore' it is obvious Q-Games will continue to deliver unique and compelling titles, but how does this title stack up and does it deserve your money and is 'Eden' a bad trip?

One of the most interesting downloadable games we have seen or played on any one platform is no doubt Pixel Junk Eden. Starting out in an almost barren garden you begin by jumping up and spin around collecting these items called Spectra, which have been scattered across gardens, using Spectra you grow plants allowing you to reach higher points and collect more Spectra. Finally reaching your goal, clearing the garden and moving to the next level and then you repeat. Basically that is all there is to the game, but the game has a fluid presentation mixed with this addictive need to reach the next garden that is very appealing."

Super Stardust HD > Everyday Shooter > PixelJunk Eden > Braid > Wii.

Although the original poster added really nothing to this, Vicophine hasn't even played Braid.

There is no way in hell that Pixel Junk is better.

That isn't saying Pixel Junk sucks, either, but it's not nearly the innovative and beautiful game that is Braid.

It's also a completely different type of game.

That said, 8/10 for Pixel Junk sounds fair. It's nothing amazing, but it's a hell of a lot better than most stuff and a little creative to boot.

Oh, and Super Stardust HD and Everyday Shooter are in no way better than Braid. Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved 1 and 2 both have those beat since, you know, Super Stardust and Everyday Shooter don't innovate.

Vicophine3633d ago (Edited 3633d ago ) forget, you are in the open zone pal..

I watched Braid being played, I really dislike puzzle games to begin with (Hell even the stupid puzzles in Uncharted made me pissed) so I wouldn't like Braid, the music for Everyday Shooter makes me like it, and Eden is addicting, yet frustrating. SSHD is good just because of the CO-OP. Other than that its mundane. I hate puzzle games which is why I think those games are better, still, it beats the Wii.

Oh and FYI: Innovation =/= Quality.

Oh, I didn't notice the open zone.

My fault. Well, at any rate, I agree that the music in Everyday Shooter is pretty damn cool.

Oh, and agreed on the Wii.

Innovation almost assuredly guarantees some kind of substance. Usually quality. I disagree. Especially when the innovation is so very well done.

You should play Braid instead of acting like it sucks (it isn't a puzzle game).
