A video game review: By Lee Sonogan
This beautiful looking video game is developed by thatgamecompany and produced by Sony entertainment. You are instantly dropped into an interesting looking world. Your character is a robbed figure and you follow a linear pass towards a large mountain. You go through many different puzzles and watch many cut scenes to experience the story of Journey. It’s a solo game, but sometimes other people online can spawn into your world and help you.
‘Journey’ is exclusive to Sony Computer Entertainment’s PlayStation 3 (PS3) and PlayStation 4 (PS4) The soundtrack of this game has been nominated as the Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media for the 2013 Grammy Awards, the first video game soundtrack to be nominated for that category.
Overall, I was very impressed with this game. For an indie game, it has creative features and animations. But it was very short and the game is sorta easy. You can complete this game in under two hours. Do not let that stop you from playing the game, the puzzles are creative and there are gameplay scenes that are fun to play as. I recommend the video game to any casual gamer and fans of good indie games.
I love this game, first being introduced to the gave over console. Its still one of my most favorite games yet, even after almost a year now of playing it. Yet with it being only two hours worth of game play, it still has so much giving to you. The simple graphics which are astounding, you don’t need to have intense and high shading in Journey but the colors they went through for each area, the designs of the character and the music is wonderful. Each time I’ve played the game, I have cried because it was a journey I wish I could never had left. A companion I had during the whole game looked after me and so I looked after them we did so till the bitter end, which at the end we seemed to look beyond the light and soon went out way into it, chirping along the way. The game wasn’t meant to be long with a huge plot but it had a meaning to it. Even in co-op with another robe person. To cherish that journey, through the best part and harsh parts. Like a meaning if life, to cherish it since we may not live longer than others. – The Unknown One (Google Review – 5/5)
