    Crytek's expertise of crafting visually stunning experiences holds true in Robinson: The Journey. Robin’s tale of survival is the greatest yet on PlayStation VR, even if some control issues keep it from being a perfect experience.

    Essential for those who are in possession of PlayStation VR. Robinson: The Journey is an adventure funny, charming, even enduring.

    Beautiful but shallow VR game with some game mechanics that get really old too fast.

    Robinson isn't the aventure that PS VR users were waiting for. It has nice gameplay touches here and there, and some visual moments and places you won't forget easily... but it's falls short for a full price game: you'll see the best it has to offer in 4-6 hours.

    While Robinson: the Journey looks great and has a decent conclusion, it seems like Crytek didn’t put any of its time into any other aspects of the game. It suffers immensely from repetitive gameplay, a short story and confusing puzzles. While I would definitely recommend that you experience this amazing world, the rest of the game doesn’t really make enough of a mark to justify its high selling price.

    That’s the most disappointing part about The Journey: it lifts you up to take you back down. Great graphics are overshadowed by weak gameplay which is then bolstered by a great cast of characters.

    As a graphical showcase there’s nothing better on PlayStation VR, but in terms of gameplay there are far more entertaining tech demos available – let alone proper games.

The first hour is Boring and needed some more adventure. The VR graphics are completely immersive once you enter the tar pits but you realize how good the game is once you enter the jungle. It's a slow build maybe too slow but the experience in the jungle and beyond saves the day. This game needs a sequel plain and simple. A must buy and experience. Expand

Besides that, this game is amazing. When you scan the things you can go in the touchpad screen and look at them in a 3D environment... it's beautiful. Expand

    I thoroughly enjoyed this game. The graphics while good, were also held back by texture pop-ins and a bad draw distance. Up close though theI thoroughly enjoyed this game. The graphics while good, were also held back by texture pop-ins and a bad draw distance. Up close though the dinosaurs really shine. The campaign only took about 5-6 hours, which is short but u can buy it used for about 30$ at Gamestop and trade it back in a few days later for over half of what you paid. SO it was well worth it to me. My kids were in Awe watching me play. It definitely does a good job of immersing you. I had no motion sickness at all. The puzzles were easy. The final 45 minutes were pretty intense. Theres not much indication on where to go but all you have to do is explore and youll easily find your objectives as it does tell you your objectives. Character does move a little slow and i wish there was more for the pet dino to do. I wouldnt have minded some actual cutscenes and some more interactions with the dinosaurs as they are the stars here but overall a solid game. I hope they make a sequel and improve upon its mistakes.

    I had really big hopes for this but i dont think its worth the price. The game is a beauty but gameplay is not that fun. the in-gameI had really big hopes for this but i dont think its worth the price. The game is a beauty but gameplay is not that fun. the in-game activities are trivial. It makes me feel like im 5 year old. The controls are not that well and robin walk way to slow. So much potential but the game isnt that fun. I really wanted to like it because i love dinosaurs but sadly it didnt lived up to my expetations. Expand

    Graphics are decent for VR but the things in the distance are limited by the tech which makes them blurry and limits its "graphic" rating forGraphics are decent for VR but the things in the distance are limited by the tech which makes them blurry and limits its "graphic" rating for me. As some people have already mentioned, it truly makes you feel like they built this game for a toddler. The puzzles are trivial yet at the same time some of the tasks are painstaking due to almost no guidance, you will be constantly saying what the hell am I supposed to do or where am I supposed to go. I believe the movement is by far the worst part. Moving forward is unbelievably slow, I'd compare it to being in crouch mode for other games and this makes travel horribly tedious. Turning your body is insanely fast compared to moving forward which is one of the reasons I believe is the cause of most of the motion sickness issues and there is no way to adjust the speed. This game is quite high up there on the nausea scale. I haven't had any problem with any other game and that could be because most are in fixed position but this one was horrible on my stomach. Even if you have no nausea issues with this game, it still doesn't deserve a high score because it is just too boring. I truly hope this is not what we can expect the typical game for VR to be or it is surely dead before it has even had a chance to begin. Expand

Very high price, expected some breathtaking action with dinosaurs, but found a very slow paced puzzle game. Seriously, it is so slow and linear that it becomes quickly boring. Try Windlands instead, and you will be shocked at the difference of pace and locomotion. Expand
