Gamers set for sensory overload

Rez, a new PlayStation 2 video game, aims to overload the senses with its psychedelic visuals and pulsating dance beats to create a sense of synesthesia.
The game takes place in a virtual world inside a computer. You play a hacker, flying through six levels of cyberspace in search of the AI at the center. Destroying one of the insect-like enemies causes synchronized music and images to be generated.
