Excellent

Very fun and Beautiful, but not a long-term game

I got this game because my Q was filled with games that had not come out yet, and because I had heard such great reviews about it.

The game is amazingly fun to play, and the simple mechanics work very well in the Journey environment.

While fun to play, the number one thing I can say about this game is that it is beautiful. The world that you are placed in, the way you interact with it, and the music all blend to make a gaming experience like no other.

However, if you are looking for any story you can follow with ease, or are looking for a long term game, keep looking. It took me less than an hour to beat Journey, and the story is a purposeful mystery that is not for any gamer wishing to indulge in a story that branches in any way, shape, or form.

In the end, it is a beautiful game that I would recommend to any gamer who is between-games and who wants a refreshing gaming experience.

This game was more of a spiritually relaxing gaming experience for me as it makes you use your own intuition to flow through the journey. It was a beautiful experience coupled with a soothing soundtrack that flows with you.

I just want to say for those who are thinking this game looks very boring.. I had thought that too when seeing the gameplay online, but after I played it I gotta say I was pretty impressed. Of course for those people who just wanna shoot everything that moves, this might not be for you... but if you at least have an open mind and willing to experience something different for a short while then go for it.

This is a multiplayer game that allows you or other people to kind of "team up" and guide each other in this journey even if it means that person is going to stick with you for a short while. If that happens you might come across more people along the way. They are completely anonymous to you in the game play which makes for a deeper multiplayer experience since you can't talk or hear them.

This is a very very short game and I think it served it's purpose being that way. If you have a PS3 and have around 2 hours to spare then I say kick back and enjoy the journey.

Overview
=================
Okay so this game is totally not my style. I am a shooter fan primarily, with some RPG and sports mixed in. However, I wanted to rent this as it has been so well reviewed.

The bottom line is that this is a pretty simple game without a lot of action. It is an artistic style game with some minor puzzle solving. However, without a word it delivers a story (a journey :->) that is pleasant and relaxing. The graphics are simply incredible. It was a pleasurable diversion from my normal games.....

Pros
=============
1) great graphics
2) relaxing story

Cons
=============
1) not enough replay value for me (good rent)
2) if you can't stand a game without action avoid like the plague
