Never Alone, what can I say besides this game is gorgeous! The gameplay acts like a basic side scroll adventure but the graphics feel more like a very well made iOS game. The story is intriguing and informational which helps you enjoy your adventure but the mechanics can get frustrating at times. Whenever I would start getting frustrated because I couldn’t make a jump it quickly went away by just watching the scenery.
The game is relatively short even with the extra content. I completed the game, 1175 gamer score, in just over 5 hours. I probably took longer than necessary since I was enjoying the game. If you are rushing to complete you can probably get all achievements done in the 3 to 4 hour range.
Difficulty rating is a 2 out of 5. The achievements are not difficult and a majority of them are unlocked through normal gameplay. The only reason I give this a 2 instead of a 1 is the controls can become frustrating at times making you spend more time than you should completing simple maneuvers.
Overall I give the game 4 out of 5 stars. Gameplay got a little monotonous after a while and at times slightly frustrating trying to figure out why I couldn’t make a jump but the game is so beautiful it almost didn’t matter. This game is a unique experience that I would recommend if nothing else for the visual experience. I have seen the game on sale a few times so keep your eyes open for the next XBox sale and pick up a copy.
