  • When you’re working in the budget gaming space it can be tricky to define a fair basis for expectations, but while a lower asking price can make room for being more forgiving you can still sense when things have sort of run off the rails. With a very unusual look, first-person puzzling play, and reasonably cool soundtrack EQI is a bit much to take in at first, especially since you’re given precious little in the way of real guidance on effective play. In the end it’s a 3D puzzle platformer that allows you to rotate the level, but the way this works can be off-putting since there’s a fixed way it rotates rather than it being relative to your perspective so this can, at times, be quite aggravating when you get turned around and aren’t sure what will happen when you trigger it. Throw in not too many levels overall, a dreadful decision to map running to pressing down on one of the analog sticks (making the attempt of running jumps uncomfortable), and just a generally unrefined experience and it has some significant issues.
