    Statik is a superb example of a puzzle game, intelligent, immersive and lots of fun to play. The subtle story woven through is interesting, the puzzles challenging without being too frustrating. VR is used superbly as an integral part of the experience and not a tacked on gimmick. Definitely worth picking up for anyone who owns a PlayStation VR.

    On paper, it doesn't look particularly impressive, but you really need to strap in and feel the stress of solving one of its many puzzle boxes.

    Statik's greatest trick, among many, is to make the DualShock the star of this darkly comic puzzle game. [July 2017, p.118]

    Statik is a great puzzle game, very clever in its execution, and it overcomes all the shortcomings of the PSVR technology. It can feel pricey considering its length and replayability, but whenever you think the price is right, make sure you play it.

    It ramps up brilliantly and is nicely paced too...It might not have the intense insanity of a "Keep Talking," but it's up there with some of the best implementation of PSVR we've seen to date. [Issue#188, p.82]

    Statik is a puzzle game perfectly suited for those who are looking for a challenging experience: you will that every puzzle, despite its difficulty, has a logical solution. However, due to its nature, its difficult to recommend Statik to those who don't want to spend their time thinking times and times over about the same puzzle.

    Statik’s sheer invention and fascinating premise are somewhat betrayed by its short length. No two puzzles are the same, and they’re all well-balanced and thought-out trials, but they left me begging for more. Still, that speaks to just how enjoyable an experience this is while it lasts. The game casts a web of intrigue that will pull you in and I suspect have some people picking it apart for even longer than the initial run time. This isn’t quite PSVR’s Portal, but it wouldn’t take much for Tarsier hit that high with a sequel.

It's a puzzle game where your hands are stuck in a box. This sounded uninspired to me when I heard about it, so it was a pleasant surprise to discover it was the opposite, a very engaging game that I didn't want to end. The puzzles are hard, and the mechanics feels very real. I really felt that my hands were stuck and that the different buttons and levers were actual physical things. More than once I snapped audibly at the scientist sitting in the same room, especially when he hilariously started to slurp coffee with a super annoying whistling sound. The game is funny, with humor reminding me of Portal. Also the game does not help you with the puzzles At. All. You're completely on your own, and that only added to my immersion. Highly recommend this for people who enjoy sitting down with conundrums. Expand

It's a bit short, but heck, the puzzles are very clever and the immersion is sublime, even better than RE7, after 10 minutes playing you can't really think you're playing, you're just in a room with a scientist making you tests, feels extremely real. A must buy.

    EDIT: After playing more and more I got in love with this game, this is what had to be released since day one. The puzzles ramp up in difficulty, not extreme difficulty, but enough to get you thinking a good time. Also, the bit of interaction you have with the scientists are extremely fun. And I couldn't stop laughing when I saw the "voyeur", a roomba with a cam. This game is excellent, I hope the devs add more puzzles in DLC form as this game deserves it.

    So far the best puzzle game on PSVR. The experience is very innovative with its unique use of DS4 Controller. The puzzles are challengingSo far the best puzzle game on PSVR. The experience is very innovative with its unique use of DS4 Controller. The puzzles are challenging enough but absolutely very clear to figure out the solutions. The hidden puzzles are also well indicated that seeking a guide is not necessary.
    However it is quite short even with the alternative ending (you have to replay all 8 mission once again) and the story is yet to be clearly explained.
    -------------------
    With the lack of great experience on PSVR now, even indies, this game deserves a 9 at the moment.

Although the game is very short. It took me around 1,5-2 hours to finish it, and although it is supposed to have an alternative ending, I'm not really in the mood of replaying the puzzles.

    The time you do spend with the game is however spent in pure joy.

    Statik is one of the most clever puzzle games I've ever played. The puzzles are very original and make great use of the vr. I like howStatik is one of the most clever puzzle games I've ever played. The puzzles are very original and make great use of the vr. I like how challenging the puzzles were. They made you think and feel like its impossible, but then something clicked in your brain and you figured it out. The length felt just right for me. I loved the unique atmosphere this game had and it made you feel slightly uneasy even while being relaxed. Overall, a very solid package. One thing though that really got on my nerves was the hands attached to the box. Very often, I had to fight with the controls, to make sure the box was facing the correct way. Even when I adjusted the camera settings and turned off all the lights, I still had issues. It made a great game become very annoying at times. Expand

    the gameplay and atmosphere is outstanding but there are some big issues, manly its length. the puzzles them selves are great and solving themthe gameplay and atmosphere is outstanding but there are some big issues, manly its length. the puzzles them selves are great and solving them is extremely satisfying. even just messing around to figure out what every button does is fun. the problem, and it is a big problem, is the length. i personal beat it in about 2 hours. by the time i beat it i was less satisfied with the game and more frustrated by the extremely short length and cause its a puzzle game there is very little replay-ability beside some secret achievements and bonus ending. another flaw is the story is pretty predictable and besides the ending doesn't have much going on. whats there is fantastic but its over so quick it feels more like loss potential then a full experience. if you fine with a very short game i would recommend it but just dont expect a full game Expand
