The Escapist writes: Child of Eden embodies many of the most wonderful aspects a videogame can possess. It's beautiful, full of vibrant colors, exotic creature design, and surprising imagery. It's weird, tasking you with diving into the archives of human knowledge to rescue a simulacrum of a long-dead girl. It's challenging, rewarding practice and study with steadily improving performance. It just might be the game that finally convinces you to buy a Kinect controller for your Xbox 360 - but it's still fun even if you don't.
