Datura Review

 

If you're looking for the perfect example of a fantastic, artistically charged idea marred by a less than reliable execution, here it is. Linger in Shadows developer Plastic has given us a surreal, mystical downloadable adventure that excels in the...

Datura Review

 

Pushing down daisies.

Wondrously unique; Mental trip

Moral choices don't alter ending much; Very short

Still, Datura should be celebrated for exploring the immersive, psychological boundaries of video games. Even though it doesn't have a high production value and it's short even for a $9.99 game, its core message is that this is an artform that has the...

Datura Review

 

Datura is a hallucinogenic drug, and taking it could have dire consequences. So what's the consequence of playing Plastic's trippy PSN game?

At about 90 minutes in length, Datura won’t take you very long to get through. If you enjoy yourself enough the first time around, the game certainly warrants a second playthrough to see the different choices you could have made and their respective...

Datura Review: A Strange Trip Through a Motion Control Wonderland

 

A wildly flawed, yet unabashedly ambitious entry into the PSN library.

Datura is a game I'm not sure I'd like to flash back to.

Datura doesn't quite reach its goal of straddling the line between "experience" and "game." Those looking for a clever adventure game with motion-controlled puzzles should just skip this one and pick up Zack & Wiki for the Wii. Those looking for a...

Datura

 

If you ever needed proof that drugs and downloadables don't make a good combination, look no further...

Ultimately, Datura comes across as more of a fragmented, artsy homage to Sony's magic wand, rather than a genuine source of entertainment... and for most gamers, entertainment is boss.

Datura Review

 

All the potential in the world and a bag of chips still only gets you a bag of chips. Datura reeks of under-utilised and squandered potential, making the end result even more disappointing...

Beautiful aesthetics and score; Trippiness

Broken Move controls; Worse with a controller; Bloody frustrating
