THE BUZZ: Ubisoft today released a new gameplay video for I Am Alive, giving us a taste of what encounters in the game will be like.
EGM’s TAKE: My thoughts on this video are a little mixed, as I have two different opinions of what I want to see from games like this.
Part of me wishes more games existed of this nature that didn’t feel the need to feature combat–games like Disaster Report and Raw Danger, where the entire idea is surviving and helping other to survive.
On the other hand, I Am Alive is also based around that negative human element, and what we do when our world goes to hell. In that regard, some of what this video shows is actually pretty interesting—especially if the game gives us some level of choice in how we deal with those who pose a threat to us.
