The cleverly-calibrated control system is the main point of interest here, but this is also an entertaining, if somewhat staid, take on VR Super Monkey Ball.

Arca's Path subscribes to the ‘do one thing and do it well' school of video game design, making it simple and intuitive to guide your ball through the steadily more complex and maze-like levels. It might lack some of the charm or adventurousness of other VR games released this year, but Arca's Path is a wonderfully accessible VR game that's incredibly easy to pick up and play.

Arca's Path combines fun and accessible gameplay with an amazingly intuitive and inventive control scheme. What could have been a debacle is instead a triumph. Arca's Path is a small game with giant ideas, and it deserves attention and praise for the ridiculously high level at which it is executed.

Arca's Path is yet another title that PlayStation VR users won't want to miss. It's most importantly a relaxing and tranquil puzzler, but with a brand new way to play, controlling the experience with the movement of your head is an ingenious input method that proves how far the technology has come. Fun, inventive, and beautiful, Arca's Path should be played by every VR aficionado.

Arca’s Path is at once a flowery, majestic adventure that immerses you in the magic of its world and in the madness of its moments, while also presenting another side that consists of a mundane, empty trek through a dead world.

Arca's Path is at its best when it's giving the player long and curving paths to cruise along and at its worst when it forces you to be tediously meticulous along short narrow paths. I understand the need for these slower sections in order to present the player with a challenge, but there aren't enough of those purely fun rewarding portions to make up for the frustration. Beautifully designed and an interesting idea, Arca's Path rarely expands beyond the simplicity of its novelty in a meaningful enough way. It wasn't long before I wanted to untie my hands from behind my back and actually use a controller. I'm glad it exists simply to try things outside of the box in VR, but this is a building block, not a definer.

Arca's Path strips away familiar virtual reality gimmicks and gives players a serene, occasionally challenging puzzle game that requires no controllers, just the simple motion of your head. Though it runs quite short, it's a peaceful space that offers another glimpse at what the platform offers.
