More immersive than many feature-driven titles dare to dream. It could be argued that by continuing in the same direction as Cloud and FlOw, thatgamecompany was fighting a losing battle...

Immersive ; Amazing visuals ; Fantastic sound

More Flower, please

Rejuvenating.

For those of you that like to try and find every hidden object or area, though, Flower will end up giving you a lot of game for your buck. It's not that there's a difficulty involved in completing the levels, or in staying alive (you can get damaged...

Flower is a horse of a different color for a variety of reasons. The most obvious one is that you play the wind, guiding flower petals through a field to pollinate other flowers There's also the Sixaxis only controls system that compliments the...

Another innovate game from Sony that shows a completely different style of game. It's not for everyone but it's worth checking out if you're looking for something different or want a game that lowers your blood pressure instead of raising it.

There will be some that won't understand the point of flower, and the game isn't for everyone; there are no menus to speak of, no high-scores, no rankings – the idea is just to experience the environments, to enjoy the colours and music – to just be....

No death no blood no destruction; Graphical opulence; A soothing interactive score

It's a touch on the short side; It's not as open ended as it first appears

All flowers with halos have to be touched, and although it seems as if the game world is there to be explored, it's pretty much an on-rails experience. It's never possible to escape off a map, or go the wrong way, instead the game cleverly moves the...

Have you ever come across a game where you just had no idea what to expect? No idea what the objective of the game was? Or even if it was a game at

More then anything I hope Flower is successful, we need more games that take such big risks like Flower. I think more then anything, Flower proves that you can still make a great game without being a FPS or a Sports game and that to me is quite...

For a game that appears so simple, Flower feels incredibly poignant. There seems to be a weight of ideas behind it; some sort of message that isn?t delivered through speech, but through a combination of vibrant colour, sound and a unique approach to...

A truly unique title, peaceful, elegant, and thoughtful, even if it's simple and short.

Flower - PS3 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

Flower opens up to a vast concrete jungle; giant, steel skyscrapers tower overhead, while massive cranes continue to build upon this ever expanding man-made metropolis. At ground level cars bustle by to the hasty speed of city life, and the only sound...

Innovative, beautiful and inexpensive, this Flower blossoms.

You play the wind in Sony's beautiful PSN game

Fantastic atmosphere ; Good motion controls ; Chance to "be" the wind

Pretty short ; Not much actual "game ; No guns

The last level actually buys into this city-healing theme by presenting a miserable cityscape and tasking you with bringing it back to life. It’s a wonderful climax and a powerful moment in its own right. The only real problem with Flower is its...

Relax.

Flower crushes game design conventions and discards them like its confection of petals. In an interview with the SCEA Blog, Chen said, "I think it's a miracle that people actually funded us to make this game," and I can definitely see where he's coming...
