Dive headfirst into the mysterious and paranormal world of the Psychonauts! Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin is an all-new Virtual Reality adventure that takes players back into the mysterious and paranormal world of the Psychonauts for the first time in over ten years!

The story picks up exactly where it left off 10 years ago, with Raz, Lili, Sasha, Milla, and Coach Oleander flying off to rescue Truman Zannotto, the Grand Head of the Psychonauts.

Despite the fact that this is a first-person VR adventure mostly devoid of the combat platforming that made the original Psychonauts so memorable, it still carries the same spirit. The wonderful writing and solid use of VR make it a fitting continuation to the series that left me pining for Psychonauts 2, especially when it ended after three hours and visiting just a handful of locations.

Another impressive PlayStation VR tech demo, but as a game, and the long-awaited return of a beloved franchise, the experience fails to satisfy.

Rhombus of Ruin is an interesting VR experiment, but it doesn’t do enough with the tech – or the Psychonauts themselves – to make it a must-play experience

Our favorite psychic secret agents return, trading platforming for puzzles and flat displays for a VR headset. The results are sweet but far too short.
