  • Summary: [Downloadable Game] flOw is a game about piloting an aquatic organism through a surreal biosphere where players consume other organisms, evolve, and dive into the abyss. With an embedded design of DDA (dynamic difficulty adjustment), players with differing skill levels can intuitively customize their game experience and enjoy the game at their own pace.

  1. Unique in its tranquil style of gameplay, flOw's delightfully smooth experience is punctuated only by technical flaws related to its beautiful visual presentation.
  2. 73
    flOw's immensely surreal style will please anyone with an open mind regarding game mechanics, and $7.99 isn't too bad a price for a digital taste of Zen.
  3. The PSP version of flOw doesn't add any new features, but it's well worth a look if you've never played any other version of the game.
  4. The visuals and sound are terrific, although the handheld port runs into severe slowdown – particularly in WLAN-supported multiplayer.
  5. 60
    In the end Flow doesn’t add enough to justify the $15 price tag if you already have the PlayStation 3 version, and the lack of a save game in between evolutions may be a problem if you suddenly have the urge to play something else in between plays.
  6. On PSP, it's just not possible to get lost in the moment. [July 2008, p.100]
