Another genuinely great PlayStation VR title, that offers innovative gameplay and presentation rather than just tech demo novelty.

Tethered is a delightful experience that shows the immense range of genres that can benefit from being brought to virtual reality. It boasts a playful and thoughtful approach to strategic god games whilst bringing you wholly into its world. For PSVR owners looking for something a little different, Tethered is utterly essential.

Tethered is a smart, inventive and funny game with a clever control scheme. One of the best PSVR games out there.

Strategy games may be a niche market on console, but Tethered genuinely has its heart in the right place. With a little more autonomy in its Peeps, it could have been a great game, instead of an above average one. Certainly a good choice if you want a lengthy VR game, though.

Despite falling shy of true greatness, Tethered is nonetheless just what Sony's new gaming platform needs to convince the naysayers of its suitability for ‘traditional’ gaming experiences. This is one PSVR title that you’ll want to hold onto.

Tethered is a magical strategy game, with cute characters, and enjoyable gameplay mechanics. It’s been quite some time since I had fun with a God-like strategy game, and Tethered is one of the best PlayStation VR games currently available. It’s a shame there isn’t any way to continue a level after meeting the goal requirements, but each of the thirteen islands is quite lengthy.

Tethered is a pleasant and relaxing game suited for players looking for a peaceful experience. Homewever, due to its peculiar gameplay, it's not a game which everyone can enjoy.

Turns up the speed on traditional god games and creates a clever tactical challenge with just the odd frustration left in its transfer from VR to 2D.
