    Short for what you're paying, Fated is nonetheless a prime example that VR is not just about flashy action and virtual heroics. [Issue#254, p.69]

    FATED: The Silent Oath is short and I didn't get invested in the story or characters, but I found it enjoyable and hope to see Frima expand upon it. [Tested with Rift]

    Fated: The Silent Oath is unique among the current slate of VR games, in that it has an engaging story and a fully realized world. However, the short time spent in this world could be vastly improved in many ways. Those who have a VR headset and want to see how a traditional story-based experience could work should be intrigued, but others might want to skip this adventure.

    For $20 FATED: The Silent Oath is a two-hour long snooze-fest that serves as the first part of an episodic game that consists of mostly walking, and talking, neither of which are entertaining.

    Its narrative is lacklustre and it’s over with far too quickly, but FATED: The Silent Oath has moments of strong immersion within a well-build but underused world. [Vive Tested]

    I found it to be pretty enjoyable... though very short given the 20$ price point... I'm hoping they're only going to charge that for the firstI found it to be pretty enjoyable... though very short given the 20$ price point... I'm hoping they're only going to charge that for the first episode, and the subsequent ones will be cheaper.

    Graphics are beautiful, and it makes great use of the VR medium. Would have liked the option to have my character walk just a bit faster, as that part tended to feel slow. Did enjoy the way some 'mini-games' were mixed in (without going into details with spoilers) and hope the devs have more of that in the future.
