SummaryCool game; Publisher disagrees
The GoodThe graphics (Powered by Plasma 2) are stunning, without killing hardware. The music is nearly flawless, and fits the ages like a glove. Ambient sound is unbelievably realistic (if you have an EAX compatible sound card). The puzzles, while some are massively difficult, are elegant and appropriate.
The BadThe game has a couple bugs, (mainly with collision detection and some video cards), and a lot of the puzzles are beyond me, requiring a sharp eye able to pick patterns out of things and re-apply them elsewhere. In addition, Uru was meant to be a MMO game, but that mode was discontinued by Ubi Soft before it even finished beta.
