Journey – Archived review

If you’re looking for a combat challenge, a platformer that requires good twitch skills, or MP PvP extravaganza, this isn’t it.

This is a gentle game of exploration and light puzzle-solving. There’s no combat, and you can’t “die”; at worst you can get into a state in which you can no longer search for some optional benefits. There are no spoken words, just sound effects. Visually, the game is beautiful, telling a story entirely with pictures.

It’s also short, about an hour or so, though with some replay value. For the gamers on this forum, it’s questionable whether they’d want to pay $15 for it.

For my part, a relaxing low-challenge exploration game is just my speed. I enjoyed it.
