The Unfinished Swan Review - Midlife Gamer

Derek "Digi" McRoberts says: "It seems that as the modern game industry grows there is now a distinct push towards games that are more of a journey, or an adventure, than traditionally associated with the medium. The likes of Heavy Rain, The Walking dead and LA Noire have begun to blur the lines between games and interactive cinema, while thatgamecompany’s Journey has ventured to the other end of the spectrum creating games that are focused more on the experience contained within than any other aspect of gaming. Don’t get me wrong, they are by no means the pioneer of these styles, but merely the front runners in their respective speciality. It is also clear, that as a platform holder, Sony are currently at the forefront of developing and cultivating these new directions.

Into this arena steps a new contender, with the arrival of The Unfinished Swan by Giant Sparrow." (PS3, The Unfinished Swan) 8/10
