FOAMSWORD GAMES The best game from the past 23 years needs to be as good now as when it was when released.
Rez is a game that never dates. It isn’t a nostalgic memory of perfection – it carries on being it.
It’s unashamedly a videogame, it’s very pure in its gameplay, and it could be described simply as an on-rails shooter. However, that is not how it’s experienced when played. It’s a shimmering hologram from the future that shows us our past, in a perfect union of art, design, audio and technology.
I’ve bought it three times on three different systems already, and now we can all experience it again on a fourth with its arrival on VR, perhaps where it was always destined to exist. And it contains all the boss battles I’ve ever enjoyed.
