Journey - PS3
 
downloaded this game this weekend on PSN. Absolutely fantastic. So different than any game I've played to date.

It's only $15 and reviews really can't put into words what it's like to play it.

The game just sort of lulls you into this peaceful tranquility like trance.

The realism that they've put into the sand is something that has to be seen to be believed. The wind pushes the sand dunes around and reshapes them and as you're running around, every grain of sand seems to be rendered. footsteps in the sand, when you fall from a high distance you hit harder and roll and the sand moves under you realistically.

It's pretty much like watching artwork in motion. There's cell shading stuff they've done but the way the light reflects around and shines off the sand looks amazing.

Awesome game, My Fiance beat it in a sitting she was so hooked on it that she instantly went back and replayed it.

Game's absolutely gorgeous in its presentation. I've only gone through it once but I could see myself playing it over and over. The multiplayer aspect is particularly neat. The music is pretty impressive too. Never played anything like it, but it was definitely worth every penny.

not a bad little game, most people will love it because it feels unique. Pretty sure the sand is done similar to Uncharted 3 with a fabric type material that bends and moves when you go through it or wind blows it. Looks quite nice although they went a bit crazy with the post processing in some levels (slide level).

Awesome game. I love how you get a cast list of sorts at the end showing who you played with.

Uncharted sand simulation was done within decals (or decal space) which were reprojected to the environment changing the normals on G-Buffer.
