    Tedious and boring, disappointing graphics.

    First and most important, do not purchase unless you have two (not one) separate PS4 Motion controllers. The game does support a Dual Shock 4 wireless controller, but the movement is very stilted and unnatural, and quite slow. I can see no reason normal smooth-movement mode (same as every other game) could not have been supported with a DS4; but instead, turning cold-jumps in segments of 45 degrees, and if your VR visor is also turned (i.e. looking in the direction of the turn) the visor then fades to black, shows you a double arrow to look forward again, then fades back in afterwards, it very disturbing; and if you are not looking in the direction of turn, you can't see if you need to turn or not. Second, progression through the game is tedious and slow. It took me 40 minutes to get out of the 1st room because you have to examine about 20 books to find what you are looking for, and examining just one book takes 10 separate actions: 1) Spot a book, 2) move too it, 3) in some cases squat down, 4) Highlight the book with the vision dot, 5) R1/R2 to pick up the book, 6) Highlight the book yet again with vision dot to bring up Examine menu, 7) O - to start Examine mode, 8) Rotate stick to view and examine details, 9) O again - to close examine mode, 10) R1/R2 to drop book on floor (nearly everything drops to floor - after which you must squat in order to pick it up again.) Third, the graphics are quite disappointing. The PS VR headset is OLED-UHD and after completing Arkham Knight VR (whose price was only $15 with gamers club, and whose graphics were absolutely astounding) I was severely disappointed to find the graphics in this game to be a lower-res and almost cartoon-like. That may have been required due to space limitations of the DVD, i.e. more story and less res (after all Arkham Knight VR only lasts one hour), but if that's the case, at a $40 price point (current $32 with gamers club), they could have included another DVD or used free DLC for better quality.

    Overall, this is a short game that is broken down into chapters. The entire game can be finished in less than 10 hours. That being said, it is a great game to learn the ropes on the VR and is completely immersive. While there were a few wonky places to try and each, or get to, I do plan on purchasing the other chapters as they are developed. There is a mixture of open world game, puzzles, and memory involved as well.

    Getting used to the comtrols at first had me thinking this game was not fun. It is a slower paced game and the controls take some getting used to. After my first play, Inthoight I was done with it, but after figuring out how to incorporate the move controllers, It really grabbed my attention. The game is immersive and I like the developments the come ul in the game that have you experience different game types in the VR.

    I was really hoping to like and enjoy this game but its execution sucked all the fun out of it. The controls are often times frustrating to use to carry-out simple tasks. The graphics are enjoyable however which makes this game all the more disappointing. Hopefully in the next chapter of this game they'll improve the control interactions.

    The way to move your character is frustrating. You can't simply look or move to where you want to go. You have to point in a direction and press a button to tell the game you want to go there. Do not bother wasting your money on this trash.

    This game was a big disappointment, from the graphics to the story line all not very good. I understand that VR games are just starting to pop off but for $40 give me a lil more. Chapter 1 was way to short could easily play through it within an hour. I would call it a pass!!

    I feel that most of the VR games that are out feel more like experiences! This game is great, but best played with a Dual Shock 4 Controllers. The move Controls are a bit Wonky. Very Immersive story, loved every second of it.
