  • Summary: The pioneers that brought you the award-winning PLAYSTATION Network title flOw are back with another concept that challenges traditional gaming conventions. Flower expands the team's tradition of delivering simple gameplay, accessible controls and a medium to explore emotional chordsThe pioneers that brought you the award-winning PLAYSTATION Network title flOw are back with another concept that challenges traditional gaming conventions. Flower expands the team's tradition of delivering simple gameplay, accessible controls and a medium to explore emotional chords uncommon in video games. In Flower, the surrounding environment, most often pushed to the background in games, is pulled to the forefront and becomes the primary "character." The player fades from an external and stressful world in the opening of this fresh and genuine game only for PS3, and journeys through beautifully vivid landscapes, changing the his surroundings and exploring nature along the way.

    Playing as the wind, the player guides and grows a swarm of pedals by interacting with other flowers and the surrounding environment. The goals and journey in each level vary, but all involve flight, exploration and interaction with the level. Using simple SIXAXIS wireless controls, the player guides the lead petal and accumulates a swarm of flower petals as he moves at his own pace within the environment, causing the on-screen world to change. Flower's gameplay offers different experiences, pacing and rhythm to all players. Along the way, the environment will pose challenges to the player's progress.

    Both pastoral and at times chaotic, Flower is a visual, audio and interactive escape on PS3.

    Every aspect of Flower serves its singular vision: nourishing and maintaining a 1-2 hour Zen-like experience. Vibrant colors, an incredible score, and meticulous eyes overseeing the game’s pacing—Flower rises to the occasion. A decade later, little has changed, though the PC port suffers a good deal on account of its mouse and keyboard controls.

    A nice, lovely little experience. There is something pretty relaxing and joyful about it, as you collect the petals, guide them in big numbersA nice, lovely little experience. There is something pretty relaxing and joyful about it, as you collect the petals, guide them in big numbers and bring back the nature back to life. For a game that's over 10 years old, it holds up quite well visually, with impressive shifts from the drab colors of the dead flora inhabited environments, to blissful colorfulness as they come back to life. Not the longest of games, but it's time quite well spent.

    Its runs well and controlls well enough on mouse and keyboard. Very good, little game, worthy of your time.
