Best game i have ever played,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Journey Collectors Edition(PS3) (Video Game)
I will start by apologizing for the long review but i thought it was necessary to show how great this game is and i really hope you pick up a copy.
I bought this game as i had the demo from psn and i was hoping for a disk copy instead of getting it from the psn store.
I was really looking forward to playing this game as the demo was just amazing i had to finish the story (talking about Journey here). It arrived exactly on the time given and in good packaging as always.
The game Journey has beautiful graphics and easy controls. the graphics well i was very impressed and i was playing it in PAL looking forward to playing in HD. It is an adventure game where you play as a nomad and all you know is you must climb to the top of the mountain before you. Some ribbon creatures will help to guide you along the way in case you become stuck as where to go.
The multilayer aspect of it is nice, you will be randomly paired up with someone based on what changes you have made to your map and various other aspects. There is no way to tell who you are playing with or to communicate with them (at the end of the ending titles it names the players you met along the way). This was a little disappointing but if you are like me and wanted to play with a friend i suggest finding a point on one of the areas (the first with the bridge is the best) and don't make any changes or make sure you do the same thing such as building the same section of bridge and when you think you find each other tap the O button repeatedly. This worked for me and my friends and we have used the same method a few times. The game is definitely re-playable and i have completed it several times and have intentions of 100%ing it.
Flower is a very simple game you are a lone petal and you need to pass over another flower to open it up and gain another petal. clicking a button blows wind to help you go faster and the movement of the controller directs your petal, can be a little frustrating but worth it. The aim is to unlock each area as you go and find the tree at the end (this is for the first level, not had chance to play the others yet). Thats all there is to it, just enjoy the music and the scenery.
Flow is a basic evolve game. You begin as a small organism made up of swirls and you must eat the smaller objects in order to grow and become big enough to eat larger creatures. The controls can be confusing in my opinion and is the only thing that puts me off this game, but don't let it put you off having a go.
The 3 mini games well i will leave it up to you to try them out if the other 3 have made you want to buy this. It comes with some free downloadable avatars and wallpapers which i wasn't aware when i bough it but now i use them both.
I highly recommend it as it is now the best game i have ever played and well worth picking up a copy.
