    The Game is really not a bad one. It act as a simple yet creative Game in itself. I played it on the PS3 and you had to control it without buttons by simply move the controller. In Journey it works as a camera and in Flower, but in Flow it`s a Pain in the ass. The controls change nearly every 8 seconds which makes it unplayable.

It wasn't until the credit level rolled that I realized flOw isn't about figuring anything out - it's simply an appreciation of shapes and sounds with an element of smooth motion controls that allowed for a short, enjoyable zen-like experience.

    I don't see myself playing it again, except to show a friend. The co-op gives a slightly competitive aspect in its various evolution outcomes - we raced to become bigger and more intricate for each stage-unique organism.

    It's not for everyone, but if you're a fan of immersive, visual treats, it's worth picking up for the $6 price tag.

    I love games like Flower, but flow is missing the er in that game, making this game a rather pain in the ass! I like games like this indie game and I have played it on all consoles and even PC, but it is still not good.

    FlOw has a very interesting concept, unfortunately the developers missed out on something greater.
    controls could use some work. I found I spent a lot of time trying to figure out how to get the guy to where I wanted it to go.
    Overall it wasn't a terrible game but i'll probably never play it again.

    flOw is still a good game, but its presence means different things, depending on the platform you're playing it on.

    flOw isn't but an easy way to add content for PS4. It's not a better version of the PS3 game. Only people that couldn't play it before will have fun with it. Even though, it's still a wonderful journey to the depths.

    FlOw is a unique little adventure that rewards players for investing in its world, but if it doesn't pull you in quick, its short length and repetitive gameplay will make for a forgetful experience.
