Journey is said to be an experience rather than a video game. Anyone that’s had the pleasure of exploring this mysterious world will most likely tell you the same. I first played Journey back on PlayStation 3 and thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience. So, it’s no surprise that when a PlayStation 4 version was announced, I hopped right on board.
There were visible improvements right off the bat. There were noticeable differences to texture, lighting, and sound. I didn’t think it was possible to make an already gorgeous work of art, even more beautiful, but somehow they pulled it off.
ThatGameCompany, the game’s creators, along with the publishers at SCEA did an astounding job expanding just a bit on what was already greatness.
This game is not for everyone. If you enjoy fast-paced, shoot-’em-up titles, (and you play nothing else,) then this game is not for you. If you enjoy art, music, and exploration, this is right up your alley.
The only complaint I’ve ever heard about this title is it’s “too short” and in a world full of horrible words being thrown around, I don’t think that’s such a diss.
