Reviews: Flower

Pretty and atmospheric, but it gets boring very fast.

Flower is a DLC game found on the Playstation Network. In it, you control the wind, and have to blow petals around until you reach a certain point in the field your in. Moving towards flowers not only causes them to release petals into the air, but may also open the way forward for you, so your main goal should be to open up as many flowers as you can.

One good thing about this game is that it's pretty to look at. The graphics are bright and colorful, and everything flows with the wind. The music is also quite mellow and peaceful, which fits the game perfectly. It's also sort of fun to fly around and see the patterns you can make the petals form.

Unfortunately, this game isn't really all that enjoyable. It's not that it's poorly done: the controls work perfectly fine. It's that it simply isn't all that challenging. Your goal is more or less the same in every level, with the only difference being the color of the flowers and the enviroment you must traverse. It does occasionally add a few gimmicks, like wind that blows you towards or away from your target, but in the end it's not enough to keep the game from getting old. Luckily, it's fairly short, so while the formula does tire some, you can still finish it before it gets too boring.

Overall, this game may be worth it just for the visuals alone, but I'd suggest trying before buying to see if it's your thing.
