One of the best horror games on PlayStation VR, as well as an impressively inventive first person roguelike that Dead Space fans in particular will appreciate.

The Persistence is terrifying, makes great use of VR and its procedural level creation works great. We also like the local asimetric multiplayer approach.

In The Persistence, the team at Firesprite have concocted a rogue-lite survival horror whose atmosphere and hard hitting combat feel fantastic in VR. Thanks to an impressive array of comfort options it's also amongst the best PSVR experiences we've had, and for owners of Sony's headset it's damn near essential.

The Persistence is a real gem, as well as one of the most long-lasting and complete virtual reality experiences you can find on PlayStation VR today.

Interesting take on survival horror +roguelike games that brings something that VR on PS4 still doesn't have. But as a game, there's not much to delve here.

This is one of the better VR titles available on the PlayStation 4, and the variety at which you get to customise your character paired with the survival horror make it a fun game to play.

The Persistence is a good game for fans of space horror, which without PSVR lost a little effect of immersion. However, it is still interesting to play, especially if you get used to the monotonous generation of levels.

Still, this version of the game does have enough depth, strategy, and replayability to make it a solid, worthwhile addition to your game library.

The Persistence is worth playing overall, but the game is unfortunately plagued with artificial difficulty solely to pad out the length.
