Child of Eden at its heart is a sequel to Rez (BXB review) to which it's a synaesthesia rail-shooter that uses a combination of trippy graphics and bass-thumping rhythm action to create an assault on your senses.
If you need story, multiplayer or other traditional crutches or simply didn’t understand the appeal to Rez, don’t bother. This game lasts as long as you make it, but the original content can be played through within two hours. If you want a non-casual game for Kinect or want to play something unique, I implore you pick up Child of Eden. Games like this come rarely and should be supported."
