I Am Alive was announced years ago, at an otherwise really irritating press conference at E3. Then it disappeared.

It's not as bad as some about this (I'm thinking rather specifically of that horrible stealth mission near the end of Indigo Prophecy, and I'm sure you've got one in mind), but it marks a shift from combat being a series of bluffs leading up to five...

I'm gonna make salsa with my tomato.

Short play time but only $15; Stays simple with realistic situations

No fight control system when it’s really needed; Long climbing scenarios with few reviving supplies

Many people first caught glimpse of I Am Alive four years ago and I can’t say four years was worth the wait. It’s not that this is a bad game—that's hardly the case, as it’s worth buying simply if you like the post-apocalyptic genre. The survival and...

Everyone loves the Apocalypse. Nearly everyone--from filmmakers and religious clergy to bored co-workers on a slow business day--has pondered

I Am Alive is a game I want to love. Some excellent ideas are hidden within the clunky mechanical execution and poor game design choices. To some, experiencing a more grim interactive take on post-apocalyptic world might be enough to justify the...

Ubisoft's post-apocalyptic survival horror flounders underneath frustration.

I Am Alive is still a great game despite these inadequacies. The sheer sense of survival and dread at the world are unparalleled. It is definitely an emotional game, dragging out the depressing...

The atmosphere ; Encounters with survivors ; Platforming is top-notch

Retry system can be frustrating ; Glitches do pop-up on occasion

It seems like I Am Alive was destined to be one of those games that took its name to a whole new level. Much like the return of Duke Nukem, Ubisoft has had this game on the burner for years. Starting off as a full retail title and switching between...

Six years (or so) in the making, I Am Alive at one point was expected to be one of those game projects that was always talked about, but never released. You know, sort of like Duke Nukem Forever. But late last year, Ubisoft finally unveiled the project...

I Am Alive is finally coming out. Was it worth the six-year wait? No. No, it wasn't.

I Am Alive has great ideas and poor execution. It ends up being a flat, frustrating game that isn’t worth your time or money.Greg Miller is the IGN PlayStation Executive Editor and a Buffalo wing enthusiast. When he's not filming PlayStation...

I Am Alive drips with atmosphere, but does its linear design sink its survival experience?

Gamers who are looking for an experience thick with atmosphere and who don't mind this linear approach will probably enjoy I Am Alive, but the rest of us might want to wait and see if there's a more interesting survival experience provided by the...

The somewhat ambiguous ending leaves it open for a sequel, and I hope Ubisoft Shanghai is given the opportunity to push their formula further, albeit with a whole lot more spit and polish.

Genre blurring; Mature tone; Incentivised side quests; When the formula works; Tense combat situations; Value for money (if you get into it); Occasions when exploration is rewardedâ

…the rest of the time when exploration isn’t rewarded; Mostly bland visuals; Incomplete traversal animations; Sound oddities; Control inaccuracies; Terrible melee combat

Despite the flaws I Am Alive is an easy game to like. But while we should be glad this project wasn't killed off in development hell, the sad truth is that I Am Alive never gets a chance to live.

It's good when it's a struggle ; Intriguing combat mechanics

Becomes too generic towards the end ; Protagonist feels lifeless

It's not hard to knock I Am Alive, but despite the flaws it's also an easy game to like. But while we should be glad this project wasn't killed off in development hell, the sad truth is that I Am Alive never gets a chance to live.
