If you missed out on last week’s excellent deal from Amazon, here’s a second chance to pick up Child Of Eden for a fiver. This time it’s Asda Direct providing the saving, with a price difference of over a fiver separating it from Amazon.
The low price mark makes it a more attractive purchase to balance the game’s short length and replay value, but its visuals and soundtrack are great stuff. Those looking for something different could find themselves having some fun in the neon-infused title. Thanks to Jas10 @ HUKD!
Unfortunately, despite its beauty Child Of Eden's over far too quickly. There's plenty of replay value though so you'll more than likely jump back into it to pick up a few more achievements or to completely purge Project Lumi from the virus that's attacking it, provided you don't go into sensory overload of course! Amazon are parting with Xbox 360 copies of the game for £5 which is an absolute steal and should save you almost £5 on the next best offer coming in from ShopTo.
The spiritual successor to Rez, Child of Eden is a dazzlingly unique slice of gameplay that truly makes the most of modern motion controls, and sees you conducting a grand orchestra of light at its zenith. It's also really cheap, now, on both platform over at Play.
Child Of Eden is astounding. Like the cult classic Rez before it, Mizuguchi's masterpiece blends visuals, music, organic SFX and vibration into one gorgeous package; rife with hidden symbolism and non-traditional storytelling. The PS3 version includes tight Move support, which is a lot more precise that Kinect's already-impressive control method. Amazon and Play.com are, as always, brawling over who can give it away for less.
If you have a Kinect sensor, then you should buy Child Of Eden. It's a visual, audial and gameplay masterpiece that features tight Kinect controls and beautiful vistas. It doesn't quite reach the giddy heights of its predecessor, Rez, thanks to a fairly overt take on its storyline and themes (and it doesn't have Fear Is The Mind Killer by Adam Freeland) - but it is a unique and truly wonderful experience. Any misgivings about its small number of highly replayable levels melt away at this price.
While Xbox 360 owners have been waving their arms to this one for a few months already, PS3 owners finally got their version of Child of Eden last month so they could do the same (but with Move controllers in their hands.) Thanks to Play’s 48 hour special deal with a special code, you can get a copy for the cheapest price yet, and save yourself £3 in comparison to the next best deal over at Base and its affiliates. The low price mark may well make it a more attractive purchase to balance the title’s short length and replay value, but its visuals and soundtrack are great stuff. Those looking for something different could find themselves having some fun in the neon-infused title. Also, it comes with a free t-shirt for you to wear, which is nice. Thanks to radael @ HUKD!
Well here's a good Kinect deal if ever I saw one! Not only are ShopTo parting with the clever little sensor bar, they're throwing a bunch of games into the mix too. By my calculations you'll be saving about £30 over picking everything up separately, but if you want to grab Child Of Eden you'll need to be quick because it's only being dropped in for free as long as stocks last. Thanks to GooGooMad @ HUKD.
One of the main reasons I wanted Kinect was to play Child Of Eden and having now played it I think it's a game that everyone should check out at least once. Sadly, whilst the game's fantastic to look at and listen to, it's incredibly short and chances are you probably won't give it a second look after you've reached the end. Play are parting with Xbox 360 copies of the game for £14.99, which'll save you almost £2 on the next best offer coming in from ShopTo. Thanks to spaceghost @ HUKD.
If you're thinking about buying into Kinect, we reckon that this bundle's pretty good value. Just under £90 will net you the sensor, Kinect Adventures (which is a fun selection of minigames) and Child Of Eden... which is one of the most glorious, life-affirming, unpredictable and downright beautiful games of the year. It works perfectly with Kinect, and I'd go as far as to say that its synesthesia is food for the soul. So, yeah, it might make for a decent early Christmas present?
Chances are if you bought Kinect it was because of this game, and if you've got Kinect and haven't picked this one up, why not? Are you mad? It's a visual treat for your eyes and ears unlike any computer game I've seen in the past, and you'll find yourself getting pulled into it instantly. Unfortunately, it's a bit on the short side and there isn't a co-op mode, or any multiplayer modes, but despite these facts it really is a game you have to experience for yourself, so don't wait any longer head on over to ShopTo and pick up your copy for £19.85, which'll save you over £3 on the next best offers.
