    It's an interesting and brave product, able to deliver a great stealth experience.

    It’s not the deepest or the most challenging stealth game out there and there are times when it can feel like an additional mode for a larger, more elaborate video game, but for the most part, Volume is a highly entertaining stealth game that puts immediacy and accessibility above elaborate gadgets or mechanics.

    Whether you’re looking for a story that might shed some light about where society could go horribly wrong over the next few decades, or if you just want to recapture the magic of Metal Gear Solid: VR Missions, Volume is one of those games that demonstrates how cool independently developed games can be.

    Mike Bithell once again unleashes another creative title onto the indie scene, but Volume's addictive sneaking and fantastic cast can't distract from the lacking story.

    Volume gives you a good range of interesting means to sneak through a hundred quite creative levels filled with sneaky puzzles. A hundred is a bit too many, but on the other hand, the game does get more interesting the further you get into it. To me, Volume is essentially a puzzle game with a stealth theme. It is a quite good puzzle game, but for a stealth game, the room for creativity and impulse is too limited to my taste.

    Volume is a bit of a mixed bag. Underutilised voice performances and some really nasty technical issues stand in the way of the title getting top marks. However, it's difficult for us to deny that the actual minute-to-minute gameplay is damn fun.

    Volume is a solid game. Its new-age telling of a certified classic is intelligently done. Its gameplay shines every now and then, but is overall lacking during most scenarios. Yet still, it is recommended if you are a fan of stealth and puzzles.

It's fun to play if you were a fan of the original Metal Gear games but if you weren't, then there isn't anything about this game that would appeal to you. The story is average, and there's nothing special about this game. It's not a bad game, no. But for me its just too mehh... Expand

    The VR mode is you acting someone who is playing the same exact game on a hologram. It is the most stupid and unconscionable idea I have ever seen for games to be brought into VR.

    - Graph is basically polygons and very crude.
