I am Alive Review

PlayDevil
24 May 2012
  • Summary: " I Am Alive " is a victim of itself. There is a constant pull between the world of realistic combat with limited resources and more traditional game elements someone clearly thought were necessary to make it more accessible. Perhaps part of the problem is the I Am Alive’s long development.

I Am Alive (X360) - Review

VGChartz
1 May 2012
  • Excerpt: When I Am Alive was first revealed four years ago, we were promised a game that would revolve around survival after a natural disaster. That was the vision the developers at Darkworks had, but they left the project in 2010.

Review: I Am Alive

New Gamer Nation
17 April 2012
  • Conclusion: This game is well worth the 1200 ms points. Its not afraid to be different and offer a more survivalist spin on the post-apocalyptic genre, and is also a definite buy for gamers who appreciate the old-school survival genre.

I Am Alive: Intense, thrilling, and a little boring, all at the same time (review)

VentureBeat
8 April 2012
  • Conclusion: My friends have been asking me how this game is, and I tell them all the same thing: “It’s not fantastic, but you’ve got to experience it.” Not fantastic because, technically speaking, I Am Alive has some clumsy controls (where you can’t always get your character to do exactly what you want him to...
  • Pros: I Am Alive is 100% raw, gritty survival. You won’t find any zombies or evil corporations here (even if one were behind this mysterious civilization-ending “event,” it’s nothing that the game explores). Lack of basic resources, suffocating dust, and common street thugs are your biggest threats. As...
  • Cons: A desolate city leads to desolate action. Even though the hostile climate is itself an enemy, slowly draining you of valuable stamina in the thicker-dust sections, some of the levels are just too lengthy. The game will force you to do some backtracking, which is annoying (but still keeping with t...

I Am Alive

ActionTrip
6 April 2012
  • Conclusion: It's a shame 'I Am Alive' didn't end up being a triple-A game, because there are some pretty cool and unique concepts here that actually work and are quite entertaining. Granted, the controls may need some tweaking and the AI isn't as smart as it could've been.
  • Pros: Surviving is fun in this game, we enjoyed the post-apocalyptic setting, characters and the twist in the combat mechanics;
  • Cons: Gets frustrating after a while thanks to a lot of trial and error, certain gameplay elements tend to ruin the experience.

  • Excerpt: I Am Alive tells a depressing tale of a man searching for his missing family a year after The Event has nearly destroyed the world. As the man explores his hometown of Haventon in search of his family, we are told a good portion of the game's story through the narrative exploits captured on camera.

I Am Alive Review: Survival Done Right

Game Informer
6 March 2012
  • Conclusion: Concept: Test the player’s ability to conserve supplies and make snap decisions in a shattered city Graphics: The post-apocalyptic world is appropriately gray and fuzzy, but the thick haze of dust storms can be a nuisance when navigating Sound: Tense music pipes in at all the right moments, and the...

I Am Alive

Total Xbox
6 March 2012
  • Excerpt: We’ve seen our share of post-apocalyptic Xbox games, but I Am Alive is different. Darker. Its stark vision of life after an unnamed catastrophe is bleaker than what we’re used to in jaunts like Fallout 3 and Enslaved , and more akin to books like The Road or old-school nuclear-war flicks à la The...
  • Pros: + Stark post-apocalyptic world — visually and thematically., + Climbing, exploration, and combat offer some tense moments...
  • Cons: ? What’s with the vague ending? We hoped for a lot more closure in the main story.
