Critic Reviews for flower
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.
The sheer simplicity of flower makes it a difficult game not to fall in love with. It's a relaxing, calming, and curiously moving experience that has the power to change the way that you look at the outside world. Moreover, the improved motion sensors inside the DualShock 4 coupled with the enhanced horsepower of Sony's fresh hardware breathe new life into the experience, ensuring that this former PS3 favourite blossoms all over again on the PS4.
Flower is a unique title. The ThatGameCompany production embraces the idea of a synesthetic digital entertainment, linked to the poetry of form and color, cloaked in a dynamic sound accompaniment. Compared to the inner landscapes of Journey - often barren, oppressive, invaded by darkness and lashed by a cruel nature - here the wonder is disrespected in living and vital environments, made of unforgettable colors.
