Available for a mere ten bucks on the PlayStation Network, Pixel Junk Eden is a welcome addition to the PS3's growing library of exclusive downloadable games. It's as easy to pick up and play as the original Mario, but offers enough depth and strategy for the high-score junkies to appreciate. What's most unfortunate, however, is that the game's initial charm, which so easily captivated me, died off rather quickly.
Pros: Stylish visuals, addicting high-score gameplay, 3-player cooperative mode
Cons: Repetitive gameplay, later levels are extremely challenging, frustrating falters
