PS3 review: Dyad

February 12, 2014

Dyad’s difficult to pin down. Up front it’s very centered around the player’s visual and aural experience, pulsating neon fractals perfectly complementing its adaptive electronic music. Dyad’s maximalist design is likely to baffle anyone walking by, admiring the experience even as they wonder what exactly is being played.

Picking up the controller strips away the blinding layers. Dyad may look for all the world like an experiential art game, but there’s a surprising core of gaminess underneath, taking its cues less from Rez than from tunnel shooters like Tempest and Space Giraffe.
