When I first received this to review I had no idea what it was. I thought I had some idea but boy was I wrong. Journey Collector’s Edition is a compilation of 3 games from that game company and Sony. The games included are a beautiful collection that will amaze all while you are having fun playing. The names of the 3 games are flOw, flower, and of course Journey. So let’s get into this review and check out these games.
Story- The story for each game is different in its own unique way. Let’s start with flOw. You are an ocean organism and your goal is to evolve. That is the whole story. You may say wow that’s it? But when you play it you will see why it is that way. It is simplistic but it is truly beautiful for that reason. Flower’s story is a sad tale. You will encounter 5 different flowers in this game each with dreams of being in the countryside instead of on their ledge in a city apartment. Each time you complete one flower’s story it will perk up and be happy again. Once again a very simplistic story that is truly amazing. Journey is a bit different. You take on the role of a traveler in a desert wasteland. There is a mountain in the distance that you must reach. The journey will take you through an ancient city where there was an ancient civilization. You will discover what led to their demise. As you can see these are 3 simplistic stories but at the same time complex in their own way. The story is worthy of a 9/10.
Gameplay- Let’s start with Journey on this one. It is your basic set of controls for this game. You will gain some power ups along the way. The way that is accomplished is you will hum some tunes. A very cool edition if you ask me. Also towards the middle of the game is you are connected to the PlayStation Network, other players can join you on the journey. It helps make you feel like you are not alone out there. flOw and flower have something in common. You will use the Siaxis feature on the PlayStation controller as the primary controls for these games. You may say no I don’t like that. I didn’t at first either. But as you get used to it you will see why it is that way and it will become natural. The gameplay for all 3 is very relaxing. It is a nice way to unwind after a long day. This is one of the best features. There are not many relaxing games out there. For all of the cool gameplay here I give it a 10/10.
Sound & Graphics- There is not too much to say here. The sound and music in the game is very relaxing. It fits perfectly with the relaxing atmosphere of the game. The graphics are visually stunning for these games. They are crisp and make you feel like you are there. There you are. Let’s give this a 10/10 as well.
This collection also comes with 3 mini games that are a nice little change of pace. You need to discover these for yourselves. They may even bring a smile to your face. The Collection also comes with a 1 month subscription to PlayStation plus for free. This game is rated E 10+ which means it is suitable for everyone 10 and up. This collection will fascinate and relax you at the same time. If you’re looking for a relaxing time with some fun I highly recommend this game.
You can purchase this game on Amazon
