ABZÛ, is an interactive swimming/adventure game from some of the creative minds behind the PS3 classic Journey. The game itself is very vague early on, but teaches you the subtle gameplay elements through it's 3ish hour story, as you make your way into different areas of the sea and interact with various sea life. The idea of the game is quite beautiful as you restore areas that have been tainted by machines that are sucking the life from the sea, all the way to the mechanical mothership of sorts, trying to ‘unlock’ the natural elements of the ocean.
The game plays well too with simple controls and no fluff. There are a small number of collectables and the meditation statues are a nice touch, allowing you to take in the serene ocean life. It isn't heavy on the gameplay side of things with more of a leaning towards a calmer hassle free experience, but has some limited replayability thanks to the achievements.
It is a great looking game. Colours of the ocean and fish pop and the water effects and sunlight streaming through make everything wonderfully vibrant. Also the contrast of the muted areas superbly portray the feeling of loss in the ocean. All in all, ABZÛ is a wonderful, thought provoking and beautiful game. It is a short, concise experience but one I would recommend to everyone.
