MasonicGamer.com: I am Alive is Ubisoft’s take on the survival horror genre. Released last month on Xbox Live Arcade, and out today/tomorrow on PlayStation Network, this downloadable title puts you into the shoes of the unnamed man, as you run, climb, and battle your way through the post-apocalyptic mess that was once your home.
The emphasis of the game is really on survival. You’re not a superhuman gunslinging type, who mows through waves of enemies using the vast stocks of ammo littered all around, but really more of a regular guy – good at climbing, but certainly no Nathan Drake or Lara Croft. Stamina plays a huge role, as does the lack of resources, so planning things out and rationing your supplies is essential if you wish to live another day. You’ll tire quickly while running or climbing, so if you don’t stop to rest, you won’t last long.... 7/10
