    This brief length shouldn’t discourage anyone with a PSVR from playing Wayward Sky, though – besides being a stellar proof-of-concept showing how one of the oldest genres of gaming will do just fine in this brand new format, it’s a great title all on its own, and a genuine standout of the launch lineup.

    What a truly charming, fascinating little game Wayward Sky is! One of the best PSVR experiences available right now.

    In spite of any shortcomings it may have, Wayward Sky is very cool and the game presents a fantastic sense of scale in VR. The fortress is gigantic, there are plenty of opportunities to look around and take in the view from wherever you are in the game, and there’s especially a moment with a particular giant robot that really deserves to be seen for yourself.

    When the PlayStation Move tracking doesn’t get in the way, Wayward Sky is a delightful game. Getting to take a peek at the fantastic world that Uber Entertainment has created was fascinating, and they tell a charming story that deals with neglect, death and family. It’s not challenging or overly interesting mechanically, but this fresh take on the adventure genre is worth checking out.

    While they look lovely, the puzzles aren’t quite challenging enough, and more brain teasers would have been welcome in the game’s three-hour run time. [January 2016, p76]

    The puzzles are intuitive and escalate well, although Uber should have taken more risks with its gameplay to truly standout. [Issue#180, p.48]

    The game is a fun, brief romp and might in fact be dampened by PSVR’s shortcomings with regards to control and visual fidelity.

Lovely use of camera, and the control is great. Puzzles are a bit too easy, and it's way too short, but kept me interested enough to finish it. At £15 it was definately worth buying. Expand

While I do think the developers can go even further with this use of VR to make bigger titles, Wayward Sky has already done a pretty good job with the VR concept.

    On the other hand, the game itself is pretty good with the fantastic air castle and big automata. However, the puzzles and the story is a little bit too childish.
