Journey Wisps Us Away On A Delightful Adventure -- Our Verdict

Journey Video Review »


The PlayStation Network exclusive title Journey from developer Thatgamecompany weaves a mesmerizing tale with breathtaking visuals and and an innovative online experience. If our reviewer Jonathan Deesing could give you only three words of advice regarding the avant garde game, he'd say, "Go play it." Here's a snippet from our review.

"The imagery is remarkably realized, and I would say without a doubt some of the best environmental graphics I’ve ever seen in a video game. During one scene, your character slides down a sandy hill as the sun begins to set, casting fiery oranges and reds over the sand. You reach a cliff and sail off it with the sun explosively descending over a crumbling desert city, landing in a dark sandy cave. I have never felt as much loss as I did during that scene, like coming down too harshly off a great trip or waking from a spectacular dream only to realize you’re still in your same shitty bed living your same shitty life. I felt that way just because the graphics changed, mind you. That’s how damned good they are."

Grab some sunblock and read our full Journey review.
