In House Review: Journey


Evil Avatar member The 7th Patriot has written a review of the Playstation 3 game Journey.

Quote:
The first, perhaps the most prominent, noteworthy aspect of Journey is its refreshingly minimalist approach. This philosophy permeates the game from its introduction until the closing scene, yet, and herein lies the games brilliance, it does this without appearing unceremonious or shallow. Make no mistake, Journey is the result of vision. Nothing is done haphazardly or without that overwhelming sense of intentionality that usually accompanies creative genius. Because of this, the game, despite its remarkably reflective tone, is characterized by a certain defiance. Journey stands as an insignificantly small island amid a raging ocean of permanent titillation and unrelenting activity. Fortunately, this island happens to be a paradise.

Reminds me of 'Another World' and 'Flashback'.

That's what I was thinking. Love games that are moving paintings / living art.

It was short, but a good game with great atmosphere and "emotion".

Agree with Nominal that the soundtrack was a ripper.

I was pleasantly surprised by this game. Not completely sure it's worth $15, but it was a very cool experience none the less!
