    While some might balk at the shorter length of Transference, I found the experience to be spot-on, particularly while played experienced in the very high-end VR. With a unique take on walking simulator mechanics and some fun (and not overly difficult) puzzles, Transference feels like an afternoon well-spent. Just be ready for some dark, adult themes. They don’t call mad scientists ‘mad’ for nothing, and Transference has one doozy of a mad scientist.

    Short and horrifying, it’s worth coming home to your PS VR headset for this family reunion. These walls talk, and you’ll want to immerse yourself in what they have to say. [Issue#155, p.87]

    A clever, creepy refashioning of familiar ideas that will make your head spin - in a good way. [Issue#336, p.78]

    Transference offers a unique experience. If it scares away with now known gimmicks, its unhealthy atmosphere, exploded storytelling and the imagination left to the player as well as the meta aspect of browsing a faulty software in a video game make it a unique and successful experience.

    A captivating albeit disturbing setting is Transference's greatest asset, rooted by strong performances from the cast and a smart approach to storytelling.

    Transference is a game with great ideas and a not-so-good execution. It’s quite short and never gets to show its full potential, but it’s enjoyable nonetheless.

    A mildly spooky walking simulator whose plot, acting, and puzzles fails to benefit from its Hollywood connections and is even more disappointing without VR.

Do not bother playing this game of flat screen TV. You will simply do not understand it and experience it the way it meant to be experienced. Visuals and audio are stellar and bring tension which never goes away through this interesting but short journey. Expand

    I wanted to like this better than I did. It is intriguing in the beginning but it definitely wears out its welcome and for me the storyI wanted to like this better than I did. It is intriguing in the beginning but it definitely wears out its welcome and for me the story seemed like something that has been done before and better. It looks good enough in VR but not that impressive relative to some other VR titles. I finished it just because I read that it was short and it is but I was glad when it was over. Expand
