One of the most technically impressive PlayStation VR games so far but a disappointingly drab and unfocused prequel to Until Dawn, that takes itself far too seriously.

Despite providing some interesting backstory for the Until Dawn universe, my enjoyment of The Inpatient is held back by dull characters and inconsistent scares.

A rare prequel that actually enhances its predecessor, The Inpatient takes a subtle but effective approach to psychological horror in VR.

The Inpatient is a much quieter game than Until Dawn. It adopts a straight-faced tone, opting for psychological horror rather than grisly thrills. There's nothing wrong with that approach, but coming off the last game, it took some adjusting. I couldn't help but wish it was more, well, exciting. It's a technical marvel, but at times the experience feels hollow and uneventful. In the end, even though I'm glad to return to this universe, The Inpatient comes across as a bit of a missed opportunity.

The Inpatient is technically impressive and sometimes scary, but it´s rythm is too slow, and you can finish the main story within a couple of hours. It has different endings and collectibles, but we felt no urge to go back to the game once finished.

The Inpatient is one of the best horror games that Virtual Reality has nowadays. Supermassive Games has created a great example of how to create an immersive story and has brought it to life for PlayStation VR. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-ldb4'); });

There's two sides to The Inpatient: the first two thirds are tense, intriguing, and gives games like Resident Evil 7 a run for their money, but then the final third is ponderous, dialogue heavy, and has very little in the way of scares. With a play time of three to four hours it's a decent length for a VR game and does have replay value with it's alternate story paths. Despite it's flaws, The Inpatient is still much better than many of the VR horror games available, so it's worth checking out if you have an expensive fancy hat from Sony.
