Well, between Mark of the Ninja, FTL, Hotline Miami, The Walking Dead and Journey, I thought I had played all the best downloadable games of 2012. I was wrong.

The Unfinished Swan is absolutely amazing. If you:

1. Own a PS3
2. Are open-minded to a game being more of an interactive experience (ala Journey) than a traditional "game"

then I can't recommend this game enough. It's pretty great.

I really need to go back and try to slog through chapter 3, it really rubbed me the wrong way though.

I also wasn't that impressed with the first chapter either.

Ch. 2 was worth the $3.75 I paid for the game alone though, really stellar.

I really didn't come across any issues with the game. I thought all 4 chapters were really great, unique experiences with just the right amount of challenge to get their points across.

So you didn't finish the game?

That sucks, dood, sorry to hear that.

The payoff is pretty great.

Is Chapter 3 the dark one?

Yeah, I just read your FB post, I'll definitely go back to it eventually, just need to get the bad taste out of my mouth; Hopefully Crysis 3 will take care of that.

edit: Yeah Oskar.

Yes. It also has the nursery.

I quit at the River section.

Oh man, you were just before one of the best parts of the game. The River isn't very long.

That's good news, After Crysis 3 it is then.

I need to start this game. And Journey. I think I will finish them both off this weekend.

That's a lot of heavy "artsy" gaming in one weekend. You should space them out. Trust me.

It's because Uncledonnie is kind of a jerk.

Agree with you 100%. I don't get it either.

Prankster says:
Hmmm, true. Okay, I think I will go for Journey first then. But wait, that requires you to play online to get the best experience right? I'm actually going to be out this weekend so it will be only offline gaming. Guess The Unfinished Swan it will be. :P

BookerT, you have to wear a tampon to like Journey. At least that's what John McClane said and he never lies...he's on the internet. He's also a French model.

All great games. But the best downloadable game of 2012 was Dust: An Elysian Tail.

I really liked The Unfinished Swan as well and yeah, CH3 was my least favorite.

I also thought the "get through Ch1 by only using 3 paint balls was one of the hardest/most unique trophies I've ever come across.

Voice of god says:
I thought it was a nice proof of concept and tech demo. But as a whole it doesn't do enough with its admittedly unique gameplay gags. It's just kind of a disjointed collection of ideas with varying quality. Not enough development of the individual parts/gags to even recommend it for its parts, and the parts don't build on each other at all to let me recommend the whole. And that says nothing of the fact that it's only 1-2 hours long.

Again, nice proof of concept, but it's nothing ore than a vertical slice of what should be a much larger and and more cohesive game. Not worth $15 in my opinion. I paid $7 and felt like that was a li bit too much. Maybe like $5?

I dunno. I see it as basically a better-than average demo with trophies.

I think that, like Journey, the game has to click with the player on an emotional level for it to "work".
