The Room VR traps you inside a wonderfully cohesive world with internal logic that doesn’t have to play by the established rules of our reality. It forces you to think your way out of things while greater powers always seem right around the corner.

The Room VR it's the new entry on the veteran series, a puzzle game that shines in VR with a collection of surprising puzzles with some impressive situations, that in the end feels very, very short (a couple of hours, little more if you get stuck) that feels even worse given its actual price...

The Room VR: A Dark Matter is great. It's got plenty of unique puzzles, which never felt overused once, and has some very creative environments. It also has a deeply mysterious story, which was designed in the same vein as the original mobile games in the series. Consequently, in the same vein as those, it didn't feel like it was a completely new and authentic VR experience. The developers didn't utilise all that VR is capable of, which is a real bummer for what this title could have ultimately been.

The Room VR: A Dark Matter is a nice puzzle game that suffers from VR's current limits.

An amazing experience that has to be seen to be believed. The Room VR: A Dark Matter takes Fireproof Games' established escape room genre to the next level and elevates it to incredible heights of an outstanding adventure thanks to the power of VR. I completely recommend this to any VR buffs out there, there is no reason not to enjoy this game.

The Room VR series has been around for a while now with iterations on phones and tablets, as well as PC and consoles. The realisation of the world and puzzle boxes of The Room VR: A Dark Matter, afterwards shortened to The Room VR, thrust the user into a virtual space alongside various locations through five or so chapters. In The Room VR, you play as a detective, investigating the disappearance of an Egyptologist, who worked at The British Institute of Archaeology, London, in 1908.

The Room VR: A Dark Matter is one of my favourite PSVR puzzle games of all time, offering a bunch of unique and entertaining puzzles within a beautiful and magical world. Although the length of the stages got rather short towards the end, my journey up until that point was a very memorable and enjoyable one, so the final stage didn’t alter my overall opinion, I just wished it had cranked things up and presented us with harder and longer puzzles to solve. If you’re a fan of puzzle games and own a VR headset – I can’t recommend this game enough – this title is a must-buy, it’s that simple!
