A really bad experience that should be left in the Dungeon from once it came.

Crystal Rift is far from an enjoyable experience, with cumbersome controls, lacklustre visuals, and poor enemy AI. The entire experience gets very tiresome very quickly, and with the ever increasing expectations for great quality games, this just doesn't cut it. This rift would be better left unexplored, unless you think you'd enjoy its torturously repetitive depths.

Crystal Rift is the only old-style dungeon crawler on PlayStation 4, and the only one to support virtual reality. It's a great kick-start for a very average game.

The (very strange) ending of the game seemingly sets up for more dungeon crawling adventures in some interesting settings.  I’m curious to see what Psytec Games Ltd improves upon if they continue with their VR games.
