With an emphasis on exploration, narrative, and discovery, Eden-Tomorrow is a great VR experience everyone should try out. Even though the game is light on puzzles and repeats the same gameplay mechanics throughout, the story holds the repetitive gameplay at bay and pads it out just enough so that you don’t feel like you’re doing the same thing over and over again. The narrative will have you guessing what’s going to happen next and what’s going on, although you’ll most likely be wrong like I was!
It is not easy to qualify a proposal like this, not so much for its successes and its improvable aspects, but for the personal nature of its proposal. It is certainly not a game for everyone. Those looking for a more open and deep adventure to use, will have a fun time but will find better options. Likewise, those who enjoy this type of experience but do not speak English will miss part of it and will not enjoy it as much as possible. Weigh in at what point you are before launching yourself for him.

While the story in Eden Tomorrow is intriguing, there are simply too many frustrating mechanics to look past. The quality of the narrative is overwhelmed by repetitive puzzles, and a strange combination of completely linear gameplay and an occasional lack of direction. This is a game that would have been much better had the developers given up on the puzzles, and simply told a story.
Eden Tomorrow could have been a VR hit thanks to a beautiful design and a scenario quite worthy, but unfortunately its extremely repetitive gameplay affect negatively the whole adventure and cause some weariness that might make you drop the game.

If you have ever wanted to discover an alien planet and get to pratice your survival skill, with Eden Tomorrow you need only the game and a Playstation VR. There are, however, between them too many dialogues with your robot partner and weak narrative.

Eden Tomorrow feels like a new developer's first outing. The gameplay is basic, repetitive, and just plain boring. The narrative would be solid, were it not shoved in your face by your flying robot companion. Aside from the music, I found myself almost completely uninvested in the game past the first hour or so. Even the occasional towering visual set piece wasn't enough to elevate the experience. And with so many deeper, more involved experiences on the PSVR platform, Eden Tomorrow feels like a step back.
Eden-Tomorrow's noteworthy narrative drowns amongst a sea of repetitive, mediocre gameplay. It does nothing to differentiate itself within an increasingly cluttered genre, and so the experience is forgotten about before you've even had time to comprehend the potential of a deeper meaning.
