“If you like a challenging post-apocalyptic platforming adventure game, [ …] this game is worth every penny.” [-Xbox Addict]
“I Am Alive's desperate scenarios and inventive gameplay should not be missed by masochistic gamers interested in entering a world of unrelenting dread.” [- Game Informer]
“…I Am Alive is a remarkable accomplishment. Not only does it create an atmospheric world that feels real enough to identify with, but it succeeds at delivering a unique experience geared towards an adult audience …”. [– Destructoid]

I like post-apocalyptic games, but this title is just boring. At first, it seems like something fresh, and the puzzle-like nature of the battles seem fun, but it gets really repetitive pretty fast. How it works basically, is you have a gun, but you have very limited ammo. The enemy doesn't know that, so as long as you aim at them, they behave. Now, you have to aim directly at them to do this. One enemy will stay with their hands in the air until the end times. More than that and the ones you're not aiming at will come at you. Every encounter requires you to think, but they set up in such a way, that every battle only has one solution, and doing anything else will result in your death. basically, this is not action, this is killing people with puzzles. The other part of the game is climbing. Lots of it. It's actually well made as far is I can tell, except for how you can eat during climbing, to regain lost stamina. Not an expert in this, but it feels ridiculous. Anyway, if you like climbing among ruined skyscrapers, knock yourself out. The story is rather bland. The protagonist is looking for his family. He has tapes. I'm sure they are dead all along. Don't really know, because I never finished it. Got bored after I was lost for too long... Oh yeah...everything in this game is grey! and boy, it is hard to find your way around after a while! Overall, I Played better.
This game was a lot worse than I thought it would be. The graphics are very drab and uninspired, making the game world unappealing and visually dead. As for the game, exploration and stamina management are key here. You will not do anywhere near as much shooting or fun segments as you would expect in a post apocalyptic game. You will spend at least 75% of your time climbing and traversing poles and balance beams. The game overall feels very unfinished and rough. The controls are not very responsive and lead to unfair deaths. The story is lacking. And the game itself is very short, taking only a couple hours to finish. I finished in around 3 or 4 hours and was never impressed with anything I did in this game and it didn't leave me with any wow moments. I wouldn't recommend this game, even on sale. It seemed like it had great potential, but it suffered from a lack of imagination, creativity, and budget. Nothing was very well executed in this game. It's just very bland and uninviting.
I Am Alive tries to be both Tomb Raider and The Last Of Us at the same time, but fails to capture the good parts of either of those games. The story is dull, making you check the menu frequently to see how much of the game you have left to play through (yes, there is a story completion meter built in). The graphics are what you would expect for a budget title, as in, slightly above what an ipad could play. The controls can be frustrating at times. As a game that is 60% climbing like this is, the controls should be precise. They are actually very vague feeling and the camera moves around alot and as it shifts, so do your control directions. The game never does anything original nor exciting and it starts to feel very repetitive after about 30% through the story. This game maybe good for a rainy weekend when you are bored of all your other games.
Once in a long while, there comes a game that makes me excited to think about playing it while locked away at school or work. It gave me something to look forward to, and when I finished it, it game me something to reminisce about. I Am Alive is one of those games. The title thrives on an engrossing storyline, atmosphere and innovative gameplay that, like many greats, doesn't lie in a single genre, but instead hops from one to the other, gathering a few select elements from each genre to deliver a whole new experience. I give the graphics a 7/10, with a few glitches and rendering issues here and there. Sound and music are a solid 8-9. But gameplay takes it home with a perfect 10 and easily transcends any visual or audio weaknesses. If you are looking for a mix of role-play, adventure, thriller, action and a bit of intellectual strategy, this is the game for you.
Let's face it,the game could have been a lot more but it's good and fun nonetheless.The one thing i didn't like about the game was that it was short.You can beat it in less than 4 hours.The gameplay is good and i really like that if you don't have any bullets in your gun and threathen someone and they can't see your bluff and you just stab them or push them off a cliff.The graphics could have been better mainly because the game is like somebody applied a black and white filter.I don't recommend that you pay full price so just wait until its on a steam sale.
