    Weeping Doll had a lot of potential, and it’s genuinely disappointing that it wasn’t able to follow through with it. This one you can’t chalk up as developer teething pains with VR; this game would be every bit as flawed, regardless of the platform it was on.

    Weeping Doll isn’t much of a game, and at just an hour long with no hidden depth to necessitate a second playthrough, it’s overpriced at ten dollars. That said, as a first-generation console VR proof-of-concept, it succeeds more than it fails.

    Weeping Doll had good ideas and a good horror atmosphere, but the game lacks ambition and finishes after only 40 minutes!

    Yes, the game was finally starting to grab me ever so slightly and then it just sort of ends. It makes me wonder if the game was even finished, or they just decided to wrap up and release.

    Going into Weeping Doll I was hoping to experience a horror game in the glory that is VR. Sadly, Weeping Doll didn’t deliver much of anything, except a simple puzzle solving game that feels undercooked.

    Weeping Doll is a brief presentation of experiments that do not work in virtual reality. Its theme is neither frightening nor coherent, its puzzles are mundane and straightforward, player movement is disorienting and inelegant, and its visual aesthetic imitates the vision of a person with a dangerous blood alcohol concentration. Weeping Doll blunders its format worse than Digital Pictures' full-motion video projects miscalculated the Sega CD.

    Almost everything about Weeping Doll underwhelms. [Jan 2016, p.115]

    Weeping Doll is completable, but almost all of the game mechanics are working against you to complete it. If you have the patience, it isWeeping Doll is completable, but almost all of the game mechanics are working against you to complete it. If you have the patience, it is possible, but its not a very enjoyable time. It had a lot of potential, but unfortunately, it doesn't feel like the game was fully finished or made user friendly.

    I played through this game, I guess I thought it would get better. It didn't.
