About

OVERVIEW is a 30 minutes narrative experience about the objects of the cosmos, from the planets in our Solar System to the galaxies beyond the Milky Way. Created by film director Paul Mezier with a team of scientists using data from NASA and the European Space Agency, OVERVIEW is an accurate and poetic adventure for all ages. How big is our galaxy? How far are we from the Sun? What does it feel like to be inside a nebula? You can now find, from your own perception, the answers to these questions. Much more than a documentary, OVERVIEW is an immersive real-time simulation tested with astronauts in zero-gravity flights. It is the journey to the stars we have all dreamed of.

Product received for free One of the few learning games for VR. Here you can learn Interesting Facts about our Universe. The Presentation fits, Controls and Representations are very good. There should be more often! My Curator page: https://store.steampowered.com/curator/30155555 My Steam Group: https://steamcommunity.com/groups/voodoode https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Go64mG_z9Ok

I probably still like Titans of Space 2.0, because there is even more played with Sizes, but for that overview goes well beyond the Solar System and has a professional Voiceover. The Graphics are good, the Presentation generally quite professional. The Experience for the Price regular Price is 16.79€ relatively short (have bought it in sale). From me a clear Recommendation for all Space Lovers who like the Docuflair and can live with the relatively weak price/game time ratio.

10 bullets it may seem expensive paid for a 30-minute report in 3D VR.... but for me what a disturbing experience. No I'm not exaggerating, I cried, don't give a damn shame. I am a lover of space, since always, since small, and even now adult. I may not be the most objective to recommend this game, but if you like space and if you want to visit our solar system taking measure of all its immensity and all its insignificant size in the rest of our Galaxy and universe, launch Overview. Unforgettable.

The story narrative is too sluggish for my Liking, with too long Breaks. (Maybe there's a Button to switch from Sentence to sentence faster) During the Activities, you can zoom from Planet to Planet without getting detailed Information. (Anyway, I didn't discover any). The Planets are nice to look at, but I have not discovered any Elevations or a visible Atmosphere. I Just seemed to be a Ball that was given a correct Texture. The Control system is also inadequately implemented. Is almost an Agony so slowly to gondle through the Solar System. If I now gather all the Information I could get from the Model, that was the Distances from Planet to the Sun. And yes, for the Distances you get a good Impression with the Model and you can better imagine the Size of the Solar System in VR. Unfortunately, I can get all the further Information of the Exploration Trip with 15 Minutes of Internet Research more comprehensive and faster, so there is not much (new) to discover. For the Price of 8.19 Euros, with DLC 13.18 Euros I would have expected more. As a free VR experience, I probably would have given a Thumbs up. I can't really recommend it like that.
