7 of 7

Journey is the sort of game that's better played than described because it does an amazing job of sucking you to its simple quest premise. It's a platform game at heart, but Journey's amazing visuals, intuitive controls, visual storytelling and lack of dialogue merge together to create a unique gaming experience that manages to make you care about the outcome by providing a sense of purpose most games completely whiff on. Journey was first released on the PlayStation Network as a download-only game, but now it's available as a standalone disc collection. Also included are two other titles from thatgamecompany, Flower and Flow. There's a handful of content about the making of Journey and three mini-games to round out the offering. Journey only takes a few hours to play through, but it's a game you'll want to play more than once. For $30, this offering is a great addition to any gaming collection. Score: 10 out of 10
