Child of Eden Wowed the Crowd at PAX

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 54 comments

The Kinect game you'll really want to play.

One of the most impressive games shown at PAX was called Child of Eden, published by Ubisoft. The game is a rhythm-based motion adventure centralized on shooting flying objects with your hands.

Child of Eden

Running on an Xbox 360 Kinect system, the game gathered huge crowds due to its intense use of colors and particle effects. The gameplay is simple: you use your hand (sometimes both hands) to guide a reticle around the screen and shoot down certain colorful object. The game rewards you with an endless supply of explosions and psychedelic colors.

Ubisoft is accepting pre-orders for Child of Eden but the game won’t be out until sometime in June.

    That just looked like Starfox with lots of colors and very little aiming. Sorry, didn't impress me at all.

    This doesn't impress me at all. It looks like they took the concept from the end of single player of Super Smash Bros. When you shoot the names and trophies and they added abstract art to it. Doesn't get my vote. Nothing new.

    I agree that the concept is simple(and perhaps borrowed from SSB), but anyone saying that this game isn't visually impressive needs to get his head examined.

    well, at least we know that the lag time issues are not improving any. The screen was way behind the guy running the device. And it looks like some old PS2 game. Games are more fun when they do what you tell them to when you tell them to, and it actually looks good

    I guess you did not notice the huge lag from the guy's motion to the movement on the screen. Plus that game will get boring very fast. Leave it to the console crowd to not only dumb down graphics and game play, but now we have dumbed down expectations for games.

    Ok, so the first arm is to aim, how does the guy shoot?

    And, you won't get no sore arms after playing this game for a prolonged time?

    The guy seems to hail hitler every 5 seconds of the vid.

    Maybe it's more fun in real life, but it looks really boring. I got bored after 1 minute.

    My grand mother's warts look impressive on a screen that big. Take this home to your 40~50" plasma for a more realistic idea of what it will be like and you'll agree that its "meh" at best.
