    A finale that blends Lovecraft and Spielberg seals the deal. [Issue#346, p.106]

    The Room VR: A Dark Matter is a nice puzzle game that suffers from VR's current limits.

    If you like the idea of combining an escape room and a point & click adventure, look no further. Although short, The Room VR is a great VR experience.

    A strong sense of atmosphere, augmented by spectacular graphics and challenging puzzles, turns The Room VR: A Dark Matter into a must-play title for VR-owners. You should, however, keep into account that the motion controller doesn't always work perfectly when turning.

    I am a huge fan of The Room games on iPad so was looking forward to this. The game itself is written just as well as its iPad counterparts.I am a huge fan of The Room games on iPad so was looking forward to this. 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.
