REZ is a rail shooter video game released by Sega in Japan in 2001 for the Sony Playstation 2 and in Europe in 2002.The game was developed by Sega's United Game Artists division,which contained several former members of the disbanded Team Andromeda,the Sega development team behind the Panzer Dragoon series.It was produced by Tetsuya Mizuguchi.The gameplay is different than the classic shooter games with trance music,with sounds and melodies created by the player as they target and destroy enemies in the game,leading to a form of synesthesia.The game was enhanced by an optional Trance Vibrator peripheral.The game is set in futuristic computer "supernetwork" called the K-project where much of the data flow is controlled by an AI named Eden.The player targets enemies by holding a "lock-on" button while moving an aiming cross over up to 8 enemies.Once the "lock-on" button is released,the fires shoot the targets...
