The Industry Standard Review: Flower

TIS writes: "his three-hour game, which you can now buy as a $10 download on the PlayStation 3's PlayStation Network, has some of the best graphics in a video game. The premise is simple, but unique. The game opens with a scene of a homely flower in a pot by a window, overlooking a drab city. The flower has a dream of being in the wide open spaces, and you as the player are the wind in that dream. You can blow throw 200,000 individually swaying blades of grass and bring vivid color to the gray world as you do so.

Thanks to those blades of grass, this is perhaps one of the few games that fully exploits the processing power of the PlayStation 3. My daughter Tanya thinks that Flower's graphics are the best she's ever seen. Like Sony's other creative title, LittleBigPlanet, this is exactly the kind of game that Sony has to bring to market in order to broaden the audience for its third-place game console, which trails behind Microsoft's Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii. The game will be available for download on the PS 3 on Feb. 12."
