I Am Alive Trailer Stresses Survival

No, it didn't turn out to be the full production we had anticipated, but I Am Alive still has a ton of promise as a digital title. Don't you think?

It's a post-apocalyptic setting and you're not really sure exactly what happened. All you know is that most people are dead, and civilization has come to an end; it's now all about the essentials, like food and water.

It'll be up to you. Do you attack to get valuable life-sustaining items? Do you bluff an armed group to escape? Do you try to go the silent route? Either way, it's going to be a challenge, and your character will be very...well, human. He probably won't be able to take much abuse and he'll respond to platforming and action sequences realistically. We just hope it isn't too restrictive.

It's definitely shaping up to be one of the more intriguing adventures of the generation. Provided the mechanics are sound, the concept should stand on its own; survival can be intense and downright riveting if it feels authentic.

As long as UBI doesn't AMY this game I may bite.

AMY can be a MEME. To me anyway. I was surprised it came out so poorly. Add to the the PSN pricing fiasco then yes, it may just be MEME material.

It looks really good, if graphically inferior, but my Spidey sense keeps telling me the mechanics aren't going to mesh properly and it will come out as mediocre.

Hmmm, am I crazy to compare this game to MGS4?

Not in terms of quality(well duh!), but how the gameplay may varies.

I reckon it's going to be a stinker, whether it will reek as bad as AMY remains to be seen, but that alone would be an almost impossible feat to achieve. That game was absolutely disgusting & i am still regretting wasting an admittedly small amount of dosh on it which could of been spent elsewhere on better games.

I just hope the mechanics are good enough for this game. It looks like a must buy..but I'm going to wait for it's release and review to know how it plays.
