Downward Spiral: Horus Station reviews and comments

Translated by

Unfortunately, I can't recommend the Game. Compared to a Top Game like Lone Echo, it seems lifeless and drying. The Movement concept is okay and you don't get Motion Sickness, but with Thrusters like in LE it would be better. The Fights appear superimposed and superfluous. Admittedly, you can also play the Game without Any threats, but then the Tasks seem very simple. Even in LE, these Tasks are not necessarily very demanding, but everything integrates perfectly into the Storyline. If you compare the Graphics, there's a mega difference here. LE is simply the Hammer and the first Spacewalk was super exciting. At Downward Spiral, I just found it boring. It's certainly not a bad Game and I didn't have any Mistakes either, but proper Enthusiasm didn't come up with me, so I gave it back after about 90 Minutes.

Downward Spiral: Horus Station from 3rd Eye Studios is a very successful Space adventure. In a seemingly abandoned space station without Gravity, we must try to decipher the mysterious Mystery behind this Story. Unfortunately, as is so often the case, the Meaning of the Story has not fully come to me. Can you write to me in the Comments. We move in the Station by pushing yourself off the Walls, or using a magnetic Rope Pull gun. This allows us to overcome further Stretches without Any problems by shooting at a Target and then allowing ourselves to be drawn in. Well-placed Enterhooks in strategic Locations, can sometimes be vital to survival ... This Kind of Movement in Weightlessness works very well for my Taste but a bit slow. However, VR newcomers don't need to be Afraid of Motion Sickness due to the low Movement speed. You then move a Little faster later using a Booster, which can be adjusted in three different Strengths and always drives us in the Direction in which we point with the Device. In the first Act of the Story, you will also find two different Bolt-shooting Devices. They are quite practical to hold their own against the nasty Guardian Drones. Targeting with the Tools, is a bit complicated and you'd better shoot out of your Hip. With a little Practice, that works out quite well. However, later you also get a Weapon with built-in Scope, very helpful to lurk up from the Distance Opponents as well. ... And don't Worry, there are many other Devices ... If we Die, we always wake up again in an obvious Airlock Chamber. The Graphics are very beautiful and handsome, on my 1070 WITH a VIVE there were no Rucklers or anything like that, even on ultra in the graphics settings of the Game. Only when Loading the individual Sections of the Station does it jerk something when they are loaded for the first time. The special thing about this Game, though, is probably the Ability to play it in coop mode and Multiplayer mode. However, I have not tested This yet. Only the sometimes somewhat unfortunate German Translation is negative, which, as is often the case in cheaper Games, seems to come from a poor Translation Program. Sometimes one wonders what is meant. However, this does not hurt The Understanding Of the game. A clear Recommendation for Space fans!
