Joystiq- I Am Alive Review: Do not resuscitate

Joystiq- I Am Alive's drive is to help solve the mystery of where Adam's family has disappeared to in his yearlong absence. His videos are directed at them specifically, promising that he will find his way back home. But I Am Alive forgets about this quest within the first hour, when Adam meets a small child who needs his help, and his focus shifts to helping her and her family. This wouldn't be such an issue if Adam wasn't constantly talking about finding his family, teasing what could possibly come next. The narrative ultimately disappoints, playing out more like a side quest to a much greater adventure than its own, cohesive story.

I Am Alive's main failing is that it wastes its promise. There are fantastic ideas on display here but, like its hero, I Am Alive loses stamina at an alarming rate. (I Am Alive, PS3, Xbox 360) 2.5/5
