''Rez'' is a RailShooter by Creator/{{Sega}} that's set in a futuristic computer ''supernetwork'' called the K-project where much of the data flow is controlled by an AI named Eden. Eden has become overwhelmed with the amount of knowledge gathered on the network, causing her to doubt her existence and enter a shutdown sequence, which will mess things up big time since society as a whole depends too much on technology. The gamer plays a hacker, logging into the K-project system to reboot Eden while destroying any viruses or firewalls that happen to inhibit progress, and analyzing other sub-areas of the network to gain access to Eden's location. The game's music and sound react to the player's actions in a way that allows you to partially compose the BGM as you play. A very trippy game that [[VindicatedByHistory did not get the commercial success it deserved]].

* JokeCharacter: The Morolian. It's essentially like being on the Zeroth Form (making you a {{One Hit Point Wonder}}) ''and'' you can't go up a form (meaning you always stay that way). It's basically there as a {{Self Imposed Challenge}} and, of course, as a {{Shout Out}} to ''SpaceChannel5''.

** There's also an unlockable [[SpaceChannel5 Morolian]] skin. When using it, you're a true OneHitPointWonder since you can't upgrade your form.

''Rez'' was released on both the SegaDreamcast and the {{PlayStation 2}} in November 2001 in Japan, and in early 2002 in Europe and North America (though North America [[NoExportForYou did not get the Dreamcast release]]). Due to its weak sales, it soon became a rare gem. However, thanks to the release of ''[[UpdatedRerelease Rez HD]]'' on XboxLiveArcade in 2008, anyone with a {{Xbox 360}} and access to Xbox Live can now not only enjoy the game for 10 dollars (at least in the U.S.), but with even more stunning high-definition visuals and discrete 5.1 channel audio as well.

It has received a sequel, ''ChildOfEden'', utilizing Microsoft's new Kinect interface. The trailer also indicates a PS3 release, probably utilizing Playstation 3's new Move interface. It is about eliminating viruses in order to secure the first AI "birth", Lumi, the AI duplication of the first space-born human girl.

Area 1 of the beta contained no sign whatsoever of Rez, so I removed it. I also added in some info from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1u6xnJIZ4gs&ab_channel=Rz .
* DummiedOut: The Rez beta [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KA6glWxMcRc used a mix]] of Underworld's ''Rez'', ''Cowgirl'', and ''Born Slippy'' for Areas 1 through 4 (Area 5 was [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=klrCjkY5vU4 already using]] ''Mind Killer''). Only a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NwBhUMU09wU handful of samples]] made it to the final release.

* NintendoHard: Surprisingly averted, for a game that shares a lot of tropes with {{ShootEmUps}}. You die in one hit, have no mid-stage checkpoints and have to shoot down waves of enemies, but the game isn't especially hard, since you lock onto enemies instead of having to manually shoot them.

Not to be confused with [=ReZ=], the host of the video game soundtrack review show WebVideo/ReZonanceSoundtrackReviews. But it does use the song “Buggie Running Beeps” from this game as its ThemeTune, though. It should definitely not to be confused with the song by Music/{{Underworld}}, however.
