Journey: The Heart of Gaia is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 82.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'd Like A One-Way Ticket, Please! You need not be a child to slip into enchantment! This game has got to be the most delightful 6+ hours I have every enjoyed. After your confusing arrival in a mystical land you acquire and travel with 3 sweet companions. They each have a special ability that protect you from danger in this fantastical other-world and assist you in reaching your amazing "pre-destination". There is a great purpose awaiting you. It is a long journey with many obstacles and tasks, plus lots of tools and gadgets to find to complete your goals. The power-crazy villain was a bizarre looking creature, posing a mega threat to everyone and everything in existence. Blowing him away was a glorious achievement! With the help of your gifted buddies and excellent guidance via a beautiful map, the journey goes smoothly without being bogged down with all that "where do I go?" and "what do I do now?" stuff that is typical in an adventure game. The games are excellent and unique, presenting very good challenge, but if you start to become weary or stressed by them, just hit the skip button and all is well. I found with a little extra patience, I did not need to skip any of them. The hand-drawn graphics are absolutely gorgeous. Add to that, the exquisite coloring and you have a magnificent work of art throughout the entire game. The artistic talent of these creators is pure magic, in my opinion. I was pleasantly engrossed in the game and mesmerized by the colorful beauty of this fantasy world. I'm sure you will love this fun, beautiful game, too! We need more of this kind of innocent entertainment. It appears at first glance to be a child's game, but I feel it is more suited to adults. God Bless....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from All Around Great Game! If you like puzzles, this is the game for you. Not only are they varied, but many of them are nothing I've seen before. Even the ones that are familiar from other games either have a new twist or are somehow more tricky than I've experienced. On top of that, the artwork in this game is superlative; the developers deserve a round of applause for having gone to so much effort. I have played some games that had great puzzles and others that were visually stunning, but never have I played a game that has both in abundance. Kudos to the large team that designed this game and I hope we see more from them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gaia wins! An excellent game with charming graphics, great story line to follow and plenty of h.o.s to find. Just right for those days you don't want anything tough, but just comforting and lovely to look at! The "full screen" adaption on my screen made it look stretched out horizontally, but I got used to it, as it was easier to find things than when it was a more "normal" view. It took me 6 hours over several days to complete and it was a joy. look forward to playing it again in a year or so!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A game that sure to capture the heart of all ages! This game was a real treat and very different of most BF games. It has a great story, charming characters, and beautiful hand drawn scenes. The puzzles were not to easy or hard.The content is appropriate for most ages. I recommend this game to all who want a positive story with colorful scenes and delightful characters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from An Unfading Classic and Fantastic Journey This is a late review and so one thing I can tell you is that the game works as beautifully in 2015 as it did in 2012 when it came out. The world within the Earth is realized in beautiful fantasy art and also thought out and put together in an amazing exercise of world-building for the genre of adventure games. The puzzles are fun , the path is long (I logged 6 hours and 35 minutes to the end) ,the characters come together and make a wonderful team(somewhat like that of Dorothy and her companions on the road to the emerald city ) with skills complementing each other and at points used together. Within its form, of fantasy adventure, I would say this is an almost perfect game and am so glad I found it and think you will be too when you start this journey.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A LONG, fun adventure game Finding that some of the older games are more fun and challenging than the newer ones, a friend suggested this game for me to try. Sheerija described the game to a tee so I will just add that even though I skipped through a couple of games this SE took me SIX hours and 2 minutes to complete! I found that I had to click around the scenes because I never knew what tiny object I might pick up along the way.. challenging and FUN. Where have all the good games gone? So tired to the gimmicks ...... If there's ANY more games like this one I want to know about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved the puzzles I played the game in the advanced mode, but it wasn't too difficult, and hints and the map were still available. And, as I said, I loved the puzzles - they felt fresh and challenging to the right degree. As to the story, it's a pure fantasy tale which extends beyond the expected final, because after you've defeated the vilain, the story continues. This is a fresh, bright, kind and captivating game, suitable for all ages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Enjoyable and beautiful I thoroughly enjoyed this game. It was bright, colorful, and fun. The music is peaceful and subtle. I didn't use speakers or headphones, though, so I didn't get a full appreciation of it. The visual style is a colorful steampunk rendered in an almost stained-glass style. The beautiful, clear illustrations were a pleasure to look at and made it easy to distinguish detail. There's lots of variety to the puzzles, some types that were new to me, no hidden object scenes (don't know why Journey is classified as a HOG). The level of challenge varied. Some puzzles I solved immediately; difficult ones I worked out on paper. There are prizes throughout the game. You can replay the game later and win missed prizes. There's a convenient map that shows where you need to be and enables you to jump there directly. As you play, you eventually lose access to older areas, so you don't waste time wandering around. The storyline directs progress through the game logically. The pacing is smooth, except for a couple of cut scenes (like the final Scartaris Umbra scene) that felt rushed. I had no technical problems, although I discovered that the game is not compatible with the screen dimmer f.lux. When f.lux dims the screen, it causes an annoying flicker in the game. Deactivating f.lux during game play fixes it. I don't usually replay games -- so many games, so little time! -- but Journey was fun enough that I would consider replaying it and trying to capture the prizes I missed out on first time around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to play I loved this game because the puzzles were not impossible, the storyline could be skipped, it had a fun and light feel about it. It was an excellent length and I just enjoyed it very much.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LIKE A DISNEY FANTASY Probably no one will read this because there are so many reviews already. I don't know why I had this on my computer without playing it. Love the graphics - hand drawn fantasy world in the Disney fashion. So that won't appeal to everyone - just us kids big and small, old and young. Like that if you need 6 objects to complete a puzzle, you can start inputting them without waiting to collect all 6. The environments are beautiful - the plants, the creatures - and the special effects are outstanding. Like the fact that the puzzles and mini-games allow you to show off your skillsets, without being mind-blowing. There's a wide variety, many unique with twists on old stand-bys. I don't mind difficult puzzles, as long as they are solvable and I can figure them out (eventually). If an occasional puzzle really stumps me, I can always skip (though I hate to do that). Great production values and good map. I like the location complete markers so that, if I decide to take the long-way to travel, I don't spend time looking at a scene where everything has already been done. Now to get the under 5 hours (or is it 6 hours) playing time to complete.
