    Ghost Giant ended up being a much more immersive story than I expected. VR or not, it tells a tale that many of us can relate to and is very touching. It focuses on a character with child-like innocence all while dealing with some pretty adult issues. It’s playful, charming, and touching. It won’t wow you with the VR experience if you’re used to that, but it does use the mechanics effectively and really engages you with the scenes unfolding below you.

    It is at times delightful and at others unflinching, with moments of VR purity that tear down the barrier between you and your companion. If you want a look at where the true power of VR lies, look no further than Ghost Giant.

    Ghost Giant is both heartwarming and heartbreaking. It delivers a beautiful world and a cute story that explores some serious problems anyone can suffer, therefore creating an experience that is both relaxing and emotional. A few control related problems, can't beat its charm. So if you are looking for an imaginative and intriguing, yet short VR experience, look no further. This is it and it is great.

    Anyone who enjoyed last year’s tragically underappreciated Flipping Death will find a lot to love in Ghost Giant. It’s easily one of the most charming VR games out there, with clever puzzles and a surprisingly layered story. The characters and world are fantastic, and while the VR gameplay can sometimes be problematic, this is definitely a game worth hooking up the PSVR’s myriad of cables for.

    Ghost Giant is easily one of the most accessible PSVR puzzle games available in 2019, despite the control issues I encountered during my playthrough. There is a deep story about mental health here, but its impact is certainly softened by the cartoony adventures of Louis and his oversized ghost friend.

    Moving adventure with charming diorama visuals but slight flaws in terms of control and puzzle design.

    Ghost Giant suffers from a bit of an identity crisis, in that it can’t quite decide whether it wants to be an adorable, low-stakes exploration game or if it wants to be about capital-B big issues.

    This is an honest review. I would consider myself a pretty hardcore VR gamer and my style of games that I really enjoy are Ghost Giant typesThis is an honest review. I would consider myself a pretty hardcore VR gamer and my style of games that I really enjoy are Ghost Giant types with good narrative. MOSS is one of my favorite VR games it's a masterpiece , and I was super excited about Ghost Giant and to be quite frank I really did not enjoy the game. The biggest issue being the controls. The game has really bad and flimsy controls. You spend most of the time trying to balance how bad it is to try and pick up items to interact with them. The game never really tells you what to do which is ok but you spend more time just randomly interacting with the environment until something initiates an sequence without really making sense. The game is also very short and the visuals did not impress. The controls and bad visuals were enough to break my experience with the game. It's also quite boring. The game is overpriced as well. There is so much better VR games out there, I would avoid this game. Expand
