    A totally unique odyssey that immediately envelops the player in a richly detailed universe ripe with intriguing lore and some of the finest storytelling on PS4, Heaven's Vault is an essential odyssey for all to embark upon.

    A fascinating mixture of Outcast and Myst.

    All in all, this game was quite fun to play and discover the secrets of the ancient language. I enjoyed the freedom of choice and the flow-on effects of those choices. This is a game for anyone who is interested in adventure games – it definitely would appeal to a wide-range of players.

    Heaven's Vault excels in creating a well-constructed, branching narrative, but expect long sections of it to feel like a slog.

    Heaven's Vault is a bold adventure, based on an interesting concept that would have deserved a more organic and effective realization.

    A fascinating, fantastical world let down by plodding pacing.

    Heaven’s Vault will satisfy budding archaeologists and linguistic fanatics in fits and starts, but the overall experience that brings those mechanics together leaves a lot to be desired. Alongside technical frustrations and tedious movement between locations, this is hardly a game we can recommend with any sort of confidence.
