Destructoid: How I survived I Am Alive

Destructoid: I'm coming off spending a weekend with early preview code for Ubisoft's I Am Alive, and I'll tell you right now that I'm already pretty excited about this game. Some of that excitement could just be that I'm relieved to be safe for a bit, and finally not nervous to the end of my wit from wandering around in the game's charged, threatening world. I was so tense from playing that I think I'll always jokingly call this game I Am Stressed Out.

This is yet another game that puts you in a post-apocalyptic situation, exploring a ruined city, trying to make your way. But what Ubisoft Shanghai has here is a bit different from the rest of your end-of-the-world games in that your struggle to survive is the main focus, and your limitations as a normal human end up being your greatest enemy.

'Ubisoft has something fairly unique with I Am Alive. While post-apocalyptic survival is nothing new to games, their focus on survival and resource management makes for a tense, thrilling experience. It's not yet clear how long of an experience I Am Alive is, but it's already looking like a hell of a big game for a $15 XBLA and PSN title. I can't wait to get back in and stress out a bit more.'

Sounds pretty positive!

One preview has piqued my interest. Sounds fascinating.

I really hope this doesn't end up as another case of 'preview - this game is amazing and we can't wait to play more. Review - this game sucks horribly from the very first second' . If it actually works as well as this preview implies this could be exactly my kind of thing. It's a pity it didn't get enough of a budget to look like a modern retail game but it looks like the atmosphere and originality could carry it.
