The graphics in Journey were absolutely stunning but that is pretty much where anything good about the game stops. Even my 7 year old son who was watching me play said it was completely boring. It pretty much throws you into game play without giving you any hint of your goal. Needless to say this game just wasn't for me.
If you like artsy stuff more than game play, go for it. Bored me. As an interactive cartoon, it is pretty, but it requires no skills and is pretty pointless. I have removed it from queue after playing demo.
These games are garbage. They are incredibly boring, and I didn't even know the controls or purpose to 4 of them.
Journey - you walk around waiting for something to happen in the desert. It doesn't. Congratulations, you beat the game.
Flower - the only game with any semblance of gameplay. You play as flower pedals guided by the wind. More fun than it sounds, but the appeal dies out after 20 minutes or so.
Flow - what the lleh is this? I played this for a half hour and still had no idea what I was doing or how you win.
The three other games I forgot the names to - Boring, forgetable. Great for provoking suicidal ideations.
All in all, I would rather be impaled by a dull rusty pike than play this garbage ever again. The other reviews talk about how this is "relaxing" and a fresh concept in gaming. If you want to relax, sit outside on a sunny day, you will enjoy that 50 times more. As far as how fresh and creative these games are, I don't understand what is creative about it. Each game is literally one idea that is stretched out to make a game. Every level is the same, graphics are boring and uninspired. I gained no enjoyment from this game. If anything, my hatred and disdain prompted me to communicate this with anyone who may glance upon this heap of garbage.
