Very Good

Surprisingly enjoyable

I got this game due to hearing so much about it and to fill up my Q since all my top 5 games I never get. I like the action packed, shooter, 300 hour RPGs, etc so I was shocked when I enjoyed this.

This is def a game for someone who wants to take an hour or two to relax and not have to be worried, stressed, use stealth, or those stupid timed button push boss battles.

Pros:
--Beautiful game
--relaxing game with no stress
--good if you only have an hour or two
--the multiplayer was very interesting. completely anon and you can use each other to refill scarf energy, show where things are, and get trophies

Cons:
--very short. I would def love a regular length game like this with more puzzles, scenery, multiplayer stuff, etc
--no narrative for the story or plats. not necessarily a con, but if you like having that narrative don't play. reminded me of shadow of colossus
--not worth buying imo, just renting

Def worth a quick play can get it and send it back in same day.

Beautiful graphics but that's it.

This is another title I'd heard rave reviews about how great it is only to see wonderful graphics but very little actual playing and fun.

Really, really boring

If you're looking for a piece of interactive art, I guess "Journey" (and some of the other games included in this collection) would fit the bill. However, if you're looking for an actual game to play - something that has conflict, definition, and a sense of direction - then this collection is definitely not for you. I know it wasn't for me. I've played a lot of bad games in my time, but this is one of the very few games I would actually call boring; not bad, just BORING. The way people were hyping it as "ZOMG, game of teh decayde", I was expecting "Journey" to be some kind of unique, defining experience. Instead, I just wandered around a desert for thirty minutes or so until I finally decided to pack it in.
