    Dunno how many people will buy this PSN game, but I finally broke down and bought it this morning, (and downloaded the song from the trailer at my girlfriend's request).

    I didn't know what to expect, but they weren't kidding when they say that the game kinda sucks you away from everything, and you feel like you're gliding for a while. All you need is a Wal-Mart fan to simulate the breeze in your face. I also love how the game starts with city sounds and visuals to transition to the relaxing atmosphere of the game, and whenever you pause, it takes you back to a window overlooking a city, and back to the "city life".

    What the?! Flower? That's not a manly title with violence, I'll pass!

    Kidding, the concept sounds weird and I've played flOw before, I think my brother in law is probably gonna get it and I'll check it out through him.

    I think I'll get this just to support this kind of left-field game design.

    Ok, I played the level you might have been referring to. I guess following the simple premise of the game, this would be what a flower dreams of when its having a nightmare. Cool level though, I love the lighting in it.

    Sold the Genesis on e-bay and I didn't get enough for the Sega Collection Game so once I transfer the money over to my PSN wallet Flower & SSFHD is bought.

    Finished this game yesterday. Short and sweet, but I will probably hit it again because there are some areas I didn't explore. Wow, that last level blew my foking mind.

    I downloaded this and played the first level. Really enjoyed it, but I've bought like eight games in the last week so I haven't dived into anything too deeply.
