M2G Review: Echochrome ii

M2G Writes:

It may seem that I’m being overly harsh on the title and perhaps I am, but after loving the original I wanted more of the same from the sequel. The changes are something much more in line with a new franchise based on the Echochrome idea but don’t seem to sit well with the series. It’s a shame really as the Move works well and it would have been really interesting to use the controller to move the environment around.

Yeah you are being harsh. You loved the original and hate this one because it is different? Move works great and the concept is amazing but it should of had a title like what? Shadowman? This review is terrible. I play the heck out of the demo, and I can tell this is a brilliant puzzle game. Casting shadows on the wall is something never done in a puzzle game. I call bollocks on this review.

Can I play Echochrome 2 with a Dualshock3? If the answer is no then you should see why motion gaming sucks ass. I wonder how many other sequels to games in the future will REQUIRE motion control.

That's similar to complaining you can't play Singstar with only a controller. Echochrome 2 is one of the few games where the motion control makes sense and is the best way to play. I hope there will be more games like Echochrome and Sorcery - designed for the Move from ground up. It's useless when the motion control doesn't bring any advantage like in MAG, Killzone 3, RE5, Heavy Rain.

Could I EVER play Singstar with a controller? I could play the first Echochrome with a controller but if I can't play Echochrome 2 with a controller then it just goes to show how much casual motion gaming is starting to take over. It's bad enough when a series like Valkyria Chronicles switches platforms but eventually more and more sequels (especially in the near future) will end up having to require motion controls to play them.

another reviewer blinded by the prequel of a game instead of rating it on its own merits. I can't really fault him though for personal choice as I loved the original a lot because of the difficulty and complexity of the game. Even as an easier game it should not get such a low rating even especially since the difficulty was the only major negative he mentioned.

what a harsh review..... for me i like the improvements made by echochrome ii, i really enjoyed the demo and on the demo alone i would have given it an 8/10 atleast
