In perfect fairness, I am more of an action based (shooter/slasher etc) gamer. I like killing mobs and, if needed, solve puzzles in between to advance. I rented this title based more on it's popularity at large than my interest in it's game mechanics. I tried it. I realized it wasn't for me, and returned it. Lovely game though.
Like it says in other reviews, it is very short. Depending on how determined a player you are (if you try to collect all the "power ups", if you stop to look at the view, etc.) it can take you anywhere from an hour to maybe three hours. Took me about two hours, and that was helping a buddy and searching for those power ups. I didn't really play much of the other games, so I don't have much to say on that.
-Actually has six games on the disc
-Visually stunning game
-Play Journey with a new friend or alone, the choice is yours.
-If you really enjoyed the game, the disc has a bounty of behind the scenes content and a developer's commentary for the three major games.
-Don't expect a saga or a very clear story. If you don't like playing games simply for the experience, you won't like it.
-Very short gameplay time (Journey)
-Not action oriented.
All in all, I thought it was a great game, but I am really glad I only rented it instead of buying it. Not really sure it was Game of the Year material, but still a memorable experience.
