A Journey trough Journey (Review)


At first sight Journey would look weird to any one that is not familiar to games from ThatGameCompany but Journey can never be judged by screens or gameplay videos.
Sins it must be played to experiences the game it self.

Journey start in a desert with with no clue who you are and what your goal is except for a big mountain with light coming from its top.
As you wander around through Journey you will have a great soundtrack in the back that adds the right mood on the right moments in game.
From only blowing wind to a wave of music buzzing from you speakers.

The game starts slowly but when you have played it for 3 minutes, you will not be able to put down your controller till the end.
And that is a good thing since it was made for a gameplay through the story from start till the end without stopping.
This journey trough Journey will give you 2 or more hours if you also play for its trophies, but every minute is worth you money.
As you travel through the land of Journey you find other players that also travel these lands.
These people can't talk or chat with you only chirp at you but traveling with them even more fun sins you don't know the real person also playing with you.
There is no load screen for when these people join you so when the appear you can just continue your journey without even paying any attention to them.

The lands of Journey do not only exist of sand there is a underground destroyed city and a mountain of snow, but I will not go to much in details because I don't want to add spoilers here.
I have experienced this game as a peaceful experience and it is not just a game like many others.
Although there can be many discussion about the story like many had with Flower you should not think too much about it and enjoy your own story through Journey.

If i had to give a score to one of my personal favorite games i have played for 2012 I would give it a 9,5
