Theseus feels like a small-team effort, and a middle-of-the-road one at that. The myth-turned-game concept is smart, but the execution and scope aren't where they need to be.

Short and succinct, there's nothing about Theseus I strongly disliked. That said, beyond the occasional picturesque moment, there isn't a lot here worth shouting about either. It succeeds in bringing a brutal slice of mythology to life, but lacks the depth or impact of similar action adventure games, putting too much emphasis on style and presentation.

Too short, linear, and with a limited gameplay. Theseus has many flaws, but the atmosphere, graphics and the excellent VR management are worth not to be underestimated.

Theseus is a very entertaining and interesting VR game. The use of the third-person perspective in VR elevates the game and creates a fulfilling and unique experience. While the combat can be lackluster and constant camera changes feel unnecessary and bothersome, the narrative holds it together and makes Theseus better than many other PSVR titles.
