    A must-have puzzle game for PlayStation VR owners. It's one of the most polished titles available for the headset, and really shows how the medium can open up new ideas for developers.

    Trust us when we say this is the best VR game since Batman. Our word is our Bond. [March 2016, p80]

    An essential VR game that gets across why virtual reality is so fundamentally different from traditional games. It immerses you in Schell’s take on spy culture, and provides some frantic heart pounding moments as you try not to die. The adventure is over all too quickly, but the format of the missions being launched from a central office is the perfect platform to bring in additional missions as updates or DLC, which I would wholly support if they matched up to the impeccable quality of the existing puzzles.

    With wry humor, just the right amount of challenge, and accessibility to all comers, I Expect You to Die sets a precedent for being one of the best virtual reality experiences available for PlayStation right now. It's not always perfect, but Schell Games has done so much else right, it's easy to overlook the few flaws that persist throughout the experience.

    Through well designed puzzles, intense escape room scenarios, and a kineticism absent in video games on standard screens, I Expect You to Die knows exactly how to leverage the magic of VR, and proves it almost every step of the way.

    I Expect You To Die is a fun jaunt into the world of megalomaniacal super villains and the spies trained to stop them. It has charm, a great sense of humor, and would do well with fans of James Bond and Archer. The puzzles themselves are delightfully elaborate and fun to work through, though I did experience my fair share of impatience at having to restart entire missions because of goof ups that were out of my control. The VR experience is mostly great, though make sure your setup is calibrated and at the right distance from the camera for best results. I Expect You To Die does right by PlayStation VR owners looking for something to play by themselves or with friends.

    One of the best puzzle games of 2016. Addictive, fun and clever.

TheThis is currently my favourite single player VR experience. Everything is interactive as you solve James Bond/Macguyver like puzzles. The humour is the unsung hero of the game that really makes the game a lot of fun. It's also fun seeing other people try to solve puzzles as they will do things you didn't even think of. The only reason it's not a 10 is because there are only so many levels. This game makes me really want a fully fleshed out James Bond spy VR game (with the same humour and style) created by this developer. Expand

VR was made for experiences like this. I Expect You To Die is slickly produced and the puzzles are satisfying enough that it almost makes up for the incredibly short length. You CAN actually die, which makes playing the game satisfyingly tense as well, though having to repeat a mission isn't so bad as they are quite short once you know the solutions. Also, that intro and theme song... pretty dang amazing. Get it! Expand

It's an "escape the room" type of game with some very nice interactions and challenging puzzles.

    One big caveat though: The game is really, really short (only 6 levels, total playtime maybe 60 min) considering the price tag.

It definitely injects a fair amount of humor into the different situations and the graphics are good. It isn't the longest game in the world with only 4 levels but I prefer short with high quality to the reverse. Expand

    Epic con. £20 for 4 levels, really???
    Level 3 is so bad designed you can't finish it unless you are lucky. The rotary for the code is so lame

    Level 3 is so bad designed you can't finish it unless you are lucky. The rotary for the code is so lame I wonder how those people made it to the industry. Spend your monies on something that has developers that deserve it.
