    It's an odd game for sure. Do not go into this expecting great controls, the best graphics, or a clear storyline. Still the game stuck with me. It's just so different from anything else out that I can get over a lot of the flaws and appreciate it for being do different.

    This is probably one of the best games this year. Its original and creative, we all should support this game, originality in videogaming is in danger, not everything should be shooters.

  1. Short and puzzling in more ways than one. A clunky oddity. [August 2012, p81]

    Datura only takes you about two hours to complete, which starts off by twenty minutes of yelling at the Move controller and fiddling with the unfortunate control scheme. It is then followed by a stroll through an absurd and amazing world, that will create an experience you won't soon forget. An experience, however, filled with non-challenging puzzles.
  3. Those with a taste for the unusual will likely enjoy Datura, as it's contemplative and slow and builds surprising tension at times. But ultimately, it's just an interesting yet flawed experiment. [Aug 2012, p.86]
