Telegraph- Child of Eden Review

When you fire upon an enemy in Child of Eden, you're not beating, killing, or defeating it. You're "purifying" it. It sounds like a flouncy semantic sop for Tetsuya Mizuguchi's abstract rail shooter - shooting is shooting, right? But the distinction is important.

Darting moths transform into fluttering butterflies; flowers bloom, scattering seeds that burst into lush foliage, the music building towards a thrilling crescendo the more the level becomes populated with colour. That you bring life, rather than death, to the world is the difference that makes Child of Eden so exhilarating, emotive and empowering.

If a game is only 30 minutes it could be a 10/10 if it's the best 30 minutes of gaming you've ever played.
