    Fated: The Silent Oath is exactly the kind of game that VR was made for, and it’s nice to finally see the technology put to work on small, intimate, emotive character drama. The good news is that this is the first part of what’s planned to be a multi-episode game, and I’m really looking forward to spending more time in this world, with these people.

    The Silent Oath is an excellent story-driven game that brings out the very best of virtual reality’s application and is one that certainly deserves a sequel.

    Fated: The Silent Oath deserves to be experienced not for its lush environments or adventure gameplay, but because it’s one of the few VR games yet that effectively creates a connection between you and the characters around you in a way that’s unique to the medium. Something as simple as nodding your head can spark a powerful reaction both in the game world and, more importantly, inside you. There aren’t many VR experiences that pull that off quite so successful yet and, for that reason alone, Fated is worth your time — even if it is a bit brief.

    A brief game that doesn't really feel like a game due to a severe lack of interaction. This is a shame, since there's a lot of potential here, especially in the VR department.

    The base idea and the setting looked promising, but the core experience is too light and simple. It's a pity, because it had more potential.

    Fated is a good VR experience, with spectacular activities, but the story ends really too quickly and too suddenly.

    Fated: the Silent Oath didn’t allow me to become the Viking that I dreamed of being, but there is a decent experience mixed in with the game’s poor gameplay elements and innovative controls. While I might have been able to feel a connection with the characters, the constant lack of immersion dampened what could have a been much more satisfying game.

    I have played a lot of VR games. The one I think back on the most is this one.

    This is the game that convinced me that characters and storytelling in VR is going to be one of its greatest strengths. I absolutely adore the characters in this game. They are all interesting and compelling in their own ways even from the brief time I got to spend with them. I cannot rave enough about the experience of being with these adorable virtual people; I really felt responsible for them on our little journey together.

    This game is definitely short, no question there - that's why it's only $10! Amazing value for that $10 though: they pack in a surprising number of different segments and a variety of really neat moments. It's a great "try a bunch of different kinds of things in VR!" sort of game, all tied together by an intriguing narrative.

    Don't pass this game up just because it's short. The journey you take with these characters is absolutely worth it.

I give this a 9 because its the best bang for your buck VR experience. This game is very short, about an 1 and a half hour but it's also very cheap: 9.99 us $ (13 ca $). It's actually a first episode of a longer game. The look of the game is very much Fable/WofWarcraft. There's not much action as it plays more like an interactive movie but when I play this game I want to stay and live in its world. And that's what VR is all about: to have fun playing and living in a world. Expand
