Too responsive controls aside, Old Man’s Journey is a beautiful, affecting experience from start to finish that rewards players that are willing to take their time and admire each scene in full before forging ahead. While it’s a short trip—even carefully-paced players will likely finish it within a few hours—learning the entire story and purpose of the journey provides insight and light on subsequent playthroughs, which inevitably feel slightly different.
This is a beautiful journey in every possible way, with gorgeous graphics and delicate music score, tinged with profound sadness from start to finish.
Old Man's Journey might be fleeting, but it's also something to savour. You might get some replay value from revisiting it at some point down the line, but its true emotional power can be found chiefly in that first play-through, when everything is fresh and, at times, delightful. It's a small game with a big heart, and if you're looking for something with charm and elegance to play on your touch screen (or even on your PC, but especially on a decent-sized tablet), then Broken Rules' wonderful game is well worth experiencing.
