Journey for PS3 Review: Breathtaking game that makes you feel "small"
12 February 2014
Conclusion: It's not quite Team Deathmatch, you just occupy the same space as random other players, silently and namelessly, helping or hindering or ignoring each other however you choose. It’s a bit like Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood's Alliance, without the daggers, plot and enemy players.
Pros: Unique and new concept. Atmospheric. Deep., A masterpiece of an Indie game.
Cons: Only lasts for two hours., Currently for PSN only

Conclusion: Brothers is just another example of video games creeping into the realm of art. Along with oft-cited games such as Journey and Dear Esther , the game gives players an interactive experience that has value beyond its pure entertainment factor.

Conclusion: FlOw, Flower, and Journey are not to be missed. thatgamecompany is doing something above and beyond other developers, and their games must be experienced to truly appreciate what they have created, and this collection is the perfect chance, Flower and Journey especially .
Excerpt: For some reason, I missed the release of Journey on PSN. I remember it being a busy month, and I remember being just a little wary of the game after being so frustrated with playing both fl0w and Flower using those awful motion-sensing control schemes on the PS3 gamepad.
Excerpt: Journey is one of the greatest gaming experiences of the current generation and something that no one who plays it will ever forget. You’re dropped into the game as a cloaked figure with nothing to go on – the player isn’t aware of their exact role or just what they’re doing.
Excerpt: There are no gaudy explosions, no zippy one-liners, no grandiose set-pieces. And it’s all over in around two hours. But Journey is one of the longest games we’ve played in quite a while. And that’s a rare compliment. Journey is long because it’s long-lasting .
Pros: Gorgeous art design, A profoundly unique co-op experience, A soaring and emotional experience
Cons: Missing out on it, Not being able to experience it for the first time again, Arguing with people who missed the point
