Downward Spiral is an adventure that gives you the most when its played with PS VR and Move controllers. Without them, the game loses its charm and the shortcomings are more evident: non impressive graphics, slow progression, bugs... It's not a game for every PS VR owner, but if you love the space flicks from the 70s you probably will enjoy it.

Downward Spiral: Horus Station is a unique take on zero gravity that feels fairly true to what it would be like. The trouble is this makes for a dull experience when not in VR. While everything feels as though it fits well, the trouble is that the abhorrent camera speed makes the only real challenge looking at things. The combat isn't hard, but still manages to be frustrating. In VR the experience may well be completely different, but without that hook, the game is an easy pass.

The 3rd Eye Studio gets, without a high budget, a new space odyssey that mixes well the moments of action, the exploration and the puzzles. This trip is better with VR. Music, atmosphere and weightlessness make magic and move the player to this Horus Station.

Downward Spiral: Horus Station neither succeeds nor fails in any spectacular fashion, and as such, it just sort of exists. This is a boring experience that doesn't do anything truly unforgivable, but is also unsuccessful in offering anything worthy of talking about. Downward Spiral: Horus Station is a thing, but you really don't need to experience it.
