PS3 Adventure

Rain

It's an ideal balance for the tone-poem vibe Rain goes all-in on, and that harmony of design makes it memorable long past the afternoon it takes to complete. To anything more would defeat the purpose. If you have a PS3 and can roll with the kind of plaintive adventure Rain revels in, it's one of the year's most interesting peculiarities.

Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta - Episode 1

Rather than the travels of the mythical Ibn Battuta, the biggest mystery with Unearthed: Episode 1 is why it was made in the first place. It combines unoriginality and low quality in a way that is almost mind boggling. Was this supposed to be a serious attempt at an Islamic-themed adventure game? A cheap cash-in on the popularity of the Uncharted series? Whatever its reason for existing, if the purpose of Unearthed: Trail of Ibn Battuta - Episode 1 was to do anything besides provide a terrible game, it missed the mark completely.
