Doctor Who: The Edge of Time
Top Critic Average
There's moments of greatness, and genuine terror, in this loving homage to everyone's favourite double-hearted alien, but time and again it's dragged down by dull puzzles and drab storytelling.
Between sluggish movement and dull puzzles, I think it's enough to say that even Jodie Whittaker can't save this game.
A Doctor Who game set in a virtual world could have been something really special. Unfortunately, the slow movement and generic puzzles don't do much for Maze Theory's game.
Any of the low-budget scenes or other technical shortcomings would be forgiven if — like the series — Doctor Who: The Edge of Time had a more engaging story and gave you more freedom to experience it. But it’s just too limiting and confining to ever capture the true Doctor Who magic.
If you're a real Doctor Who aficionado, you may find some enjoyment here, but otherwise, this is a waste of your precious time.
The game in a whole is great for any seasoned VR gamer and new VR gamers as well. I gave my wife a spin at the game and even though she doesn't game much, she had a blast with it. The creators really did a good job in the creation of this game and even though I am not up to date with everything involving Doctor Who, I think it is a good tribute to the growing audience the series has.
The Doctor Who fan in me loved his time with this title. From a non-Who fan, video game standpoint though, its negatives weigh heavy on the overall experience. Its short, too easy and sometimes cumbersome. If your a Who fan though you will love parts of it, as I did. Maybe wait for the title to go on sale.
Doctor Who: The Edge of Time is a very brief VR adventure game mainly for the fans of TV series.

Doctor Who: The Edge of Time has flashes of excellence and, if you’re a hardcore Doctor Who fan, you’ll get something out of it. But for a show that’s had this long a run, there’s really nothing remarkable about Doctor Who: The Edge of Time.
Doctor Who: The Edge of Time offers a gripping atmosphere and a great performance from Jodie Whittaker but besides that, it falls flat.
