Flower Mention in… Call of Duty Review?

Posted by on November 11th, 2009

Love the dichotomy!

“Modern Warfare 2, set five years in the future, doesn’t seem sure which film it’s trying to replicate, and hovers somewhere between Red Dawn, Black Hawk Down, and all seven seasons of 24. There’s a plot, but it’s incomprehensible.Ignorant non-gamers may scoff at the very notion of a videogame having a plot, but the medium has recently undergone an immense creative explosion. Last week, for instance, I finally got round to playing Flower, a stunningly beautiful PS3 game in which you “play” a breeze blowing petals around an impressionistic landscape. It’s abstract, powerfully touching, yet impossible to describe; it simply could not exist in any other medium.

Read the full (quite good!) review here.
