IGN: Osmos Review

The small team at Hemisphere has crafted an alluring, captivating experience that is a nice change of pace from the frantic action videogames often provide. It well deserves the Direct2Drive Vision Award it received at this year's Independent Game Festival (full disclosure: IGN owns Direct2Drive). Even though Osmos is relaxing, that doesn't mean you won't find a nice challenge. But even the early stages are nice to play around in, lazily swimming about and becoming the big fish in the pond. There is a long list of games Osmos bears something in common with: flOw, Asteroids, Katamari Damacy... But it emerges as its own thing, and definitely deserves a look.
