    Despite being a relatively compact experience, OddBug Studio has created a tightly knit series of challenges invested in an eye-catching world topped-off with a VR implementation that will undoubtedly be copied by many other titles before the year is out. It’s hard to fault the team for what content is there, as in those few hours of gameplay it’s likely that you’ll find The Lost Bear to be one of the most compelling PlayStation VR videogames to date.

    A mechanically modest platform puzzler, The Lost Bear neatly leverages the power of PSVR to fashion a wholly charming adventure that lingers long beyond its slim duration.

    A short runtime paired with a comparatively steep price shouldn’t be enough to keep you away from The Lost Bear. The title’s simple gameplay may not challenge you, but the overwhelming charm of the title should win you over. Between the calming soundtrack, beautiful art direction, and delightfully impressive environmental depth afforded by the platform, The Lost Bear is a cute and worthwhile addition to your VR library.

    Do not expect hours and hours of gaming or a huge virtual immersion, but The Lost Bear is a very enjoyable puzzle-platform and VR is the classic icing on the cake.

    The Lost Bear isn’t necessarily what you’d call a killer app for PlayStation VR. It doesn’t have that same immediate impact games like Batman VR, Farpoint, or Arizona Sunshine demonstrate so well. Over time, however, that brand of first person virtual reality has become more and more familiar and I find myself looking for games that attempt to use the technology in new ways, which is what you get from The Lost Bear.

It's a cute, quaint 2D platformer that makes an excellent, clever use of the depth of field offered by VR. While on the short side, it's worth the trip. Expand
