Salary Man Escape - Launch Trailer | PS VR
With a unique presentation unlike anything I've seen before in gaming, Salary Man Escape creates its own singular vision of workplace hell. But with frustrating controls and a bordering-on-broken physics model, the stellar puzzle design is lost in a mire of irritation and exasperation. If I wanted to feel stressed, I would just go to work.
Salary Man Escape is a competent puzzler that has a decent amount of fun to offer when things are going your way, but when that enjoyment partly relies on physics outside of your control, it's easy for frustration to creep in when the going gets tough. Add that to the fact that the game lacks a definitive control method thanks to flaws in both motion and the traditional controller, and you can't be blamed for looking for an alternative experience.
Salary Man Escape is not a bad puzzle game, which, with a good level of immersion, almost doesn't the charms of VR technology in the gameplay. This is one of those games that could work without VR. Unlike the recent Moss, which would lose most of the emotions and gameplay elements without VR.
