Rez, the action shooter brought to you by the creators of Space Channel 5 and Sega Rally, is a fast moving, wire-frame adventure backed by industrial beats. All you DJs and music lovers out there will definitely get into the fact that your player's actions actually change the music and backgrounds on the fly.
Tetsuya Mizuguchi is the brains behind this one-of-a-kind title for PlayStation 2, and he and his development team at United Game Artists are only a couple of months away from the finished US product! We wanted to give you a First Look into what you can look forward to in this edgy, fast-action title.
The story of Rez takes you deep into the world's computer network, which has recently been updated to handle the overload of information brought by the rapid expansion of the information age. The core of the new network is known as "Eden," an extremely advanced artificial intelligence. Only, Eden is perhaps too brilliant and begins to ponder its own existence and suffers a breakdown. You must take control of the network while you manically search for Eden to bring it back online.
The network was built to keep intruders out at all costs, so you'll have to fight off enemies from all sides. To reach the system's core, you'll need to shoot your way through each area and take out its specific firewall (boss) to wipe out that part of the system. By hacking the system, you'll alter the visual output and even take over the music, creating your own rhythms and eye-candy as you dig deeper into the dream-like cyber world.
