I Am Alive
Posted 08 April 2012 - 10:14 AM
I Am Alive is a logic survival game based in a post-disaster city, which has been torn apart by earthquakes. The sand below is dangerous and suffocating, so avoiding ground level and below is just one way people survive in this world. Elements within the game such as logic/problem solving it also a key to survival. For example: If you have five guys trying to loot you, and you have one bullet, you need to figure out how you'll get out of this mess. Climbing large set pieces, like that of Uncharted is also a large gameplay mechanic within 'I Am Alive'.
I first found the demo available on the PSN store the other day. I realised that after only playing for 15-20 minutes that i would really like this game. I completed the demo and then played it again on survival mode - which was even more fun! The main character carries a gun, but almost always has next to no ammo, if any. So any bullets you do find, are literally only used to get you out of life or death situations. Survival mode is made more difficult by allowing you less retries after dieing, meaniung you have to start from the start of the chapter.
Anyway, i bought the game the next day, and for £11.99 (£9.99 PS-Plus), this game is a bargain.
Enough of my experience, I'll let you judge this game for yourself.
If i were to relate this game to any others, it would have to be a mix of: Silent Hill (navigation), Uncharted (climbing huge objects), Fallout (post apoc survival).
Although I haven't completed the game yet, I'm going to go ahead and rate it. I'm giving it a 8/10 purely based on gameplay. The graphics are a little out-dated, but nothing that will put you off playing. Some of the looters that attack can feel a bit repetitive in places, but overall the feel of the game is quite unique, and can't really be missed at such a low price.

If you're expecting a long AAA survival game like fallout, this probably isn't the game for you. But if you want a cheap PSN/XBL title with an interesting twist on the post apocalyptic genre, with Silent Hill style isolation, then this game is worth your small change.

I just got hold of the crossbow, which is so bloody handy, but you gotta look after the one and only bolt you get with it, make sure you retrieve it every kill!

Finished the game with like 7 retries so I doubt Survivor would be a problem.
