    The Room works just as well in VR as outside, with the same somber mood, cleverly detailed environments and expertly crafted puzzles. It does however lose some of its flair by being too safe, having a handful of obnoxious puzzles and generally being way too lacking in content

    The Room VR: A Dark Matter does a great job of making its interactive puzzle boxes more than just hunting for the right knob, often leaning into what VR does best by putting you into cool situations that are shown off in flashy and polished fashion. Unfortunately, there’s just not a lot of it here, and its intricate detail can occasionally cause confusion as you flail at the mostly inert world around you. Still, its two hours of puzzles were certainly worth solving.

    The Room VR is the new entry in the veteran series, a puzzle game that shines in VR with a collection of surprising puzzles with some impressive situations, that in the end feels very, very short (a couple of hours, little more if you get stuck) that feels even worse given its actual price...

    The result is a rather confused adventure, where the player is easily lost between two puzzles. The whole thing is not helped by a script and an uninteresting universe. However, some good game design ideas, like the possibility of entering inside certain mechanisms, hit the mark. And the diversity of the puzzles is to be welcomed. A Dark Matter is thus a pleasant title despite its flaws. But far from being a must in VR.

The game itself is written just as well as its iPad counterparts. The use of VR is brilliant. The graphics and puzzled are good fun.

    However.......the game is way too short for the price tag. I finished it in about 3 hours and only really got stuck on the puzzles once. Also, quite often the hand used to grab things freezes just leaving objects out of reach. Finally, even after finishing the game, i'm not really sure what the storyline was. I just went from puzzle to puzzle. The story wasn't really clear.

    All in all, a great game if it had been much longer or half the price, with a better storyline.
