SBG: "The launch lineup of a system can usually be divided into three categories. The first is the hastily-ported game from another system. With those, the original game is probably good, but there are few reasons the port is better. The second is the gimmicky game that shows off the features of the new hardware. Those don’t typically age well, as the developers try too many things and don’t have much time torefine ideas or hindsight needed to know what to avoid. Sound Shapes is part of the third group, the legitimately interesting and innovative titles that find a home at a system’s launch not because that’s where they need to be, but because it’s a time they can get publisher support without getting drowned out by larger projects."
