  • Conclusion: However, once the game is done, there’s little else to do. Replay value is not too high, and for eight bucks one would expect more play time. Even getting other people in the game tends to just make it aggravating. I mean, who wouldn’t be upset if someone ate out of your plate? For the kind of game it is and the price it has, one really has to question needing to buy this game.

  • Summary: While the versions on the PC had players move the creature using a standard mouse controller, Flow on the PS3 offers a unique control system where you need to use the PS3's controller as a tilt mechanism to steer your creature through the worlds. It takes some getting used to at first, but it becomes intuitive and easier once you get the hang of it. You can turn quicker by flipping the controller, allowing you to catch smaller creatures off-guard.

  • Summary: FlOw has more in common with something like a lava lamp than an actual game. It's something to be watched. You'll find yourself infinitely more intrigued by the shapes and colors that evolve throughout its experience than its relatively scarce gameplay mechanics. It's basically a piece of computer art that happens to be controllable via the Sixaxis controller. And the really crazy thing?
  • Pros: Pleasantly austere graphics and audio, Creature designs evolve beautifully, Tilt controls work surprisingly well
  • Cons: After a couple of hours, you're pretty much done with it, Challenge is nonexistent, Cooperative play doesn't do much for the experience

  • Summary: flOw n’est pas un jeu comme les autres. Le contexte devrait simplement vous le confirmer : on incarne une créature marine microscopique dont le but est de manger des organismes dans les bas-fonds de l’océan… Fume, c’est d’la bonne.
  • Pros: Un concept original, Des graphismes qui claquent, Une B-O efficace, Relaxant...
  • Cons: ...ou parfois chiant, Très court

  • Excerpt: A l'heure où les superproductions aux thématiques belliqueuses envahissent les magasins, certains développeurs ont une approche quelque peu différente du jeu vidéo. Ces derniers donnent parfois naissance à des ovnis, des jeux aux desseins mystérieux et envoûtant, au genre inclassable. C'est cela que nous propose le studio Thatgamecompany avec un premier jeu sur le PSN, flOw.
