    Ryte: The Eye of Atlantis has beautiful visuals that depict the ancient world of Atlantis in a semi-realistic representation of a harbor, temple, outdoor marketplace, etc. The immersive quality of VR draws in the player as they try to solve puzzles through the campaign. While there are some flaws and definitely the developers could do more to enhance the user experience, I still recommend Ryte: The Eye of Atlantis as a unique historically-based puzzle game.

    There are some good ideas here and some very nice visuals… but it just lacks some polish and I suspect many people will be lured to the game simply because of the use of Atlantis in the title with the expectation that they could explore the legendary city… unfortunately they will have to look elsewhere to get their mythological travel fix. Not really one I’d recommend unless it’s on deep discount and you just really want another quick puzzle game.

    While seasoned adventure gamers will have surely visited the lost city of Atlantis many times before, and this latest excursion does include a few missteps, if you have the VR hardware to play Ryte: The Eye of Atlantis, you’ll find it worth your time for its fresh take on this age-old story.

    Ryte: The Eye of Atlantis is a story-driven puzzle title with a nice flair for the dramatic. Grand elements are littered throughout, from the giant centurion battles to the towering temple at the city centre, yet there’s a sense a lot of this grandeur has been cut back. Especially when the first playthrough unlocked the Steam achievement for completing the videogame in 1 hour 30 minutes. It isn’t a complete one and done thankfully as there are multiple endings depending on five key choices you make along the way which gives the gameplay some much-need depth. Ryte: The Eye of Atlantis has some great ideas whilst seemingly missing some obvious ones.

    Ryte: The Eye of Atlantis has enough moments of interest to make it worth a look, but there’s nothing particularly deep or memorable here. Perhaps you’ll have better luck with performance, but as-is, it clearly needs some optimization work to be a smoother, less glitchy experience as a whole. And even then what’s here is mostly derivative, if compelling at-times, VR adventure fare.

    With a lack of movement options, poor character animations, some truly terrible voice work, and dull gameplay, Ryte: The Eye of Atlantis is something VR enthusiasts should skip. There are far better VR puzzle games available that are more deserving of one's time.
