Summary: Beautiful game with a great soundtrack! Very relaxing to play and the way they did the controls with using the sixaxis is perfect. I have had alot of fun playing through this game, highly recommend!
Summary: Unless you happen to be a huge fan of Snake-like games, flOw has little to offer. Beautiful flowing graphics are its main draw, but watching gameplay videos on YouTube is almost the same as playing the game.
Summary: Yes, Virgina, there is ... ... an interactive experience marketed through Sony that uses the PS3 as a host and it is indeed art. Make no mistake this is what art would look like if it was a video game. If the Dalai Lama was a "gamer" this is what he would be playing. It is unfortunate that some gamers won't appreciate it because it's on the PS3 and the word "game" is used to describe it.
Summary: I love microorganisms and I love Jellyfish. This game offers a playable creature that combines the two beautifully. The visuals and sound are pretty, tranquil and ambient. The simplicity of the gameplay makes the game easy to pick up and play--and play and play. The only gameplay difficulty I encountered was the nature of the game controls; it uses motion sensors instead of joysticks to navigate the creatures. It took awhile to get used to.
Summary: Very unusual game. It's very relaxed (most of the time), without significant penalties for "dying" or "getting injured." It's fun, but quite short. I enjoy non-traditional games though, and this definitely fits that description.
Summary: flOw was free on PSN a few weeks ago for just one day, so I decided to download it. I mean, free's a good price, and I can't really complain about wasting my time or money with a free game, right? Well, I can't complain about wasting money, but time? Yes. A lot of people have went on and on about how this game is a 'work of art', a phrase that's being thrown around more loosely than Courtney Love, and has lost a lot of credibility.
Summary: If you're going to buy it, just remember it's not a "game" in the usual sense. There is an objective, but there is no real win or lose. It's basically an interactive program to relax you. You eat organisms while trying to avoid getting eaten using Six Axis motion control--and as such it is highly recommended to play sitting straight up. That's it. If anyone purchases this title thinking it's a "normal game" they will be sorely disappointed.
Summary: This is one of those weird games. For the longest I though this was a screensaver! No help, no guide, controls are terrible. You just "figure" out what to do eventually. I wouldn't dare pay full price of $7.99. I was able to get this free from a promotion. Its a better screensaver than a game. This just isn't my cup of tea. If your nerves get agitated very easily...do yourself a favor and skip this one.
