Journey

Journey
I can still remember this game at the arcade. I laughed at it then and I still laugh at it. It is probably one of the dumbest games made. At least now I can play it for free and get all the way to the concert. I remember someone telling me about this awesome concert if you got all the way through the game. I kept thinking it was a game based on Journey, so how could there be an awesome concert? Maybe if I was a teenage girl. Well, I didn't bother back then trying to see the concert, I mean there were much better games to play.

For anyone who hasn't played this game, your mission is to have each band member retrieve their musical instrument and head back to the ship. Once all five band members have done this, you go off to a concert with a looping song and a bunch of girls rushing the stage. Boy am I glad I didn't waste too much money trying to see this.

The characters in the game look silly. Each one has this huge digitized head attached to a little video game body. Sorta like a video game version of bobbing heads, only with rock stars. It is enough to evoke laughter in anyone who remembers the group. This alone makes the game worthwhile.

The actual gameplay is repetitive as you have to get your players through a series of obstacles, be it a platform or flying through a cave. Once you retrieve the instrument, the game changes and a new challenge appears. Nothing is more frustrating than getting all the way to the instrument, only to die on the way back. It is enough to make you erase the game forever.

Overall, it is a dull game with less than thrilling gameplay. It is a fun conversation piece and good for an occasional laugh. Beyond this, you are better off putting on a Journey album (always available at thrift stores) and move around some GI Joes or something.

This is just a review of the arcade machine.  If you are looking for the actual arcade machine, you may want to check out ebay.  Click below to see if you can find this game.
