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.
--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
--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.
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.
