How I fell in love with Rez

I know I'm late to the party but it's still going on right? I never got the chance to play Rez
on the PS2, so when it was released on Xbox Live I thought I'd give the demo a try. At first
I didn't see what all the hype was about so I turned to my D-toid la famalia for some
guidance. Instantly I was told to go into the Option menu and switch on vibrate because for
some reason it is off by default. So I go do this and continue to play the demo, still not
understanding what I'm missing. The vibration does add to the game, but it still didn't make
it as special as everyone was saying; so I let it go.

Another week goes by and I keep hearing how good the game is so I decided to go ahead
and buy it on a whim, hoping the be enlightened as I play more of the game. I made it to
Area 4 without any problems and started to enjoy myself but didn't have my "OMG"

Then as I reached the boss for this area, it happened:

When I fell in love with Rez HD from Kryptinite on Vimeo.

I don't know if it was the boss, the way the music and controller vibrated as I surged
forward through the tunnel, or maybe it was all the intense colors that were being thrown
my way but I fell in love. The way the music vibes with the enemy's I'm shooting, the
feeling of weightlessness, and the since of freedom in this game is what I think makes it
amazing. I'm becoming a believer of games that aren't 8 hours longs because this was an
experience I think everyone should have.

As you can see I got owned but that's not the point. My point is that certain games take
awhile to stick and when they do, you all of a sudden have a new understanding and
appreciation for the game. I've heard that Area 5 is mind-blowing and I need to see it to
believe it.

Oh and expect more video reviews from yours truly because I recently bought a new
toy to make this possible.
