Popmatters Review: Flower, Sun, and Rain

Popmatters writes:

"If Killer7 and No More Heroes were too weird or inaccessible for you, stay far, far away from Flower, Sun, and Rain. This is without a doubt, the most maddening, weird, annoying and not particularly fun game I have ever played. And yet, I applaud the effort and many of the ideas present in it.

Flower, Sun, and Rain asks a question that I think is very important as we look at video games as an art form: do they have to be fun? Think back to the last game that you played through that was not fun (game reviewers aside). Can't come up with anything? I don't blame you, neither could I. Most sane people will stop playing a game when it is not fun. But Flower, Sun, and Rain asks the player to slog through awful game mechanics and seemingly endless, pointless dialogues to uncover the details of it's plot-one that is at least interesting." (Flower, Sun and Rain, Nintendo DS) 2/10
