    Quite possibly the most breathtaking 3 hour art piece I've ever experienced. Don't let its brevity dismay you.

    Quite possibly the most breathtaking interactive 3 hour art piece I've ever experienced. On the surface, its simplicity and ease is accessible to nearly anyone. But deep beneath the crafted visuals an...

    This is one of those games that will be played for a while to come.

    First off, before you put another 10 hours into Skyrim, or finish that one side quest on Mass Effect 3 or even do an other 15 useless matches of Call of Duty, download this game and experience the mas...

    Journey may be a short, but has some of the best moments we'll see for many years to come.

    It's quite rare to see a game that shines out from the rest of the gaming world; Journeys span all of the Earth's landscapes and resonate within the human heart, regardless of sex, age, and origin. If...

    Journey is a deeply affecting and transcendent piece of interactive poetry

    Rated on March 14, 2012 by Setho10

    There are no scores in Journey. You don't level up, gain experience, fight enemies, solve puzzles, or really do anything else that you would normally find in a game. The story is wordless, the game an...

    ThatGameCompany blesses us with some rare magic.

    Rated on March 15, 2012 by Conjuration

    This is a rare thing to see these days: A game that comes from the heart. Journey wasn't crafted out of focus groups and Mountain Dew commercials. It wasn't made for the twitch-happy mainstream. ...

    Journey creates a warm friendship between two complete strangers, and when the journey is over, it's sorely missed.

    Rated on March 15, 2012 by mhaed

    Journey is not exactly a game, in the sense that you have objectives to accomplish and suffer penalties for your failures, rather, it's a demonstration of just how emotionally powerful the gaming medi...

    One of the most breathtaking experiences I've ever had. A true Piece of art.

    (Everything written in this review is my personal opinion, I'm trying to give you an idea of what the game is like. If you find it interesting, play it yourself and create your own opinion... But holy...

    It is a beautiful game. Simply beautiful

    Rated on March 17, 2012 by fernando103s

    This game may seem a bit dull or boring the first time you play, but it is really good. The landscapes are majestic, the graphics are great, and every other visual aspect of the game is very good. The...

    Video games are art, thatgamecompany proves it again.

    Rated on March 17, 2012 by Shacks210

    When games like Journey come along, it proves without a doubt that video games can be art. Although putting this game into a category such as art game doesn't really give it enough credit. It is easy ...
