    Wraith: The Oblivion — Afterlife is a wonderful example of what a pure horror survival game made exclusively for VR can be. It forces you to be slow and deliberate. It rewards you for making the most use of your physical play area as you slip out of harm's way or sniff out Barclay Mansion's many secrets. It also hosts a cast of interesting characters, and each of its monstrous specters has a fascinating backstory to seek out.

    Ultimately this is a horror game that I almost don’t mind playing… that is to say there are certainly horror elements (it’s not fun trying to escape a spectre), but there’s also a compelling story and a quite well set out world to explore. There are enough moments of exploration without direct terror to give you a chance to breathe… but then you are subjected to nightmare material again. If you like horror games then this is definitely worth a look.

    Aftermath is a very interesting horror adventure. It’s engaging and well designed, and we have enjoyed exploring the Barclay Manor even if there was a constant sense of déjà vu.

    An interesting horror adventure you should try, especially if you have an Oculus Quest 2.

    Wraith is a tense, captivating stealth-adventure, held back by lack of finetuning as well as a few dull sequences.

    While the VR medium definitely makes the game scarier, there’s absolutely nothing about Wraith that wouldn’t have worked just the same in a normal game. The hide-in-seek genre of horror games has been done to death, and Wraith would have been much better served by more scripted encounters, on rails scares, and fewer (or no) fail states. Once a monster catches you and sends you back to your last save, it loses almost all of its power to scare you. Wraith stopped being scary when it started being tedious. It’s one of the most disappointing horror games I’ve played because I loved the way it started, but its strong introductions never developed into anything more compelling.

    The atmosphere in this game is insanely good and the soundscape and moody lighting is what does it. Distant footsteps and creaking floor madeThe atmosphere in this game is insanely good and the soundscape and moody lighting is what does it. Distant footsteps and creaking floor made me shudder as I walked through the dark corridors of the mansion.

    The story is mysterious and intriguing and definitely makes you want to know its secrets. After finishing the game I immediately wanted to play it again just to pick up on the details of the story that I didn't understand during my first playthrough. If you enjoy games like Amnesia, Alan Wake, Outlast, Blair Witch, Alien Isolation etc, you're gonna love this!

    The game slowly lures you in with its beautiful aesthetics but evolves into an intense horror experience that is probably my best one yet.

    A nice horror game with an intriguing mystery that unravels as you play. Great atmosphere that doesn't lean on jump scares.
