I Am Alive Review - Alternative Magazine Online

It’s the best type of failure possible – an enjoyable one. Scaling a crumbling skyscraper is a stomach-lurching, visceral experience that rivals any big budget release. It also makes you think long and hard about decisions that shouldn’t really matter – do you use your final bullet to free a woman handcuffed to a bench? There is a niggling feeling throughout that this could have been a superb big budget retail release – Naughty Dog certainly seem to be taking that route with their upcoming game The Last of Us. Instead, I Am Alive ended up as a small downloadable title crammed full of brilliant yet half-baked ideas. It’s fun – especially when you get your hands on a bow and arrow that will bring back fond memories of the original Thief – just don’t expect this apocalyptic world to be a particularly polished one. (I Am Alive, PS3) 7/10
