Theseus reviews and comments

Theseus is a 2 Hr-hour short VR experience. The Story is about Theseus and Ariadne and the Minotaurs. Graphic is done quite well, but there should have been more Variety. The Sound is ok. And the Control with the Gamepad from the Third-person perspective is passable, though not perfect. Grade the Camerawork could have been better. For 19.99, the approximately 2 Hours of Play is already quite short. The VR experience only gets a Thumbs up because it's decently done. However, FROM my Point OF VIEW, IT is NOT worth 19.99 Euros, but it is too short and the control or the Challenge too monotonous. In itself, you don't do much in the Game, ahhh the VR experience. Squeeze a few Buttons and often crawl on the Ground. Then again spider-like beings with a Torch and Sword, that's almost all there is to do. SOMIT IS IT FOR LEUTE who want to experience a MITTELMÄßIGE VR story with WENIG ONLY, AND TO FOUR OR GENUG GEL HAVE. The Thumbs up I found really hard. Neither good nor bad would it be more likely to hit. But looking back, I just see a lot of things more benevolent;)

Theseus reflects the Story of King Minos, Ariane and Theseus caught in the Labyrinth with the famous Minotaur. The Hero awakens in a very disturbing Environment and the Player is initially left alone without further History. Later, You walk through the stone-making labyrinth, you'll learn more and more about the Story through Narratives by Ariadne. The Character is controlled in the 3rd Person Perspective. In a VR game, that's quite rare, it often feels like accompanying the Character on its Way. Theseus fights with Torches and Sword Against nasty Spider mills and sneaks and climbs behffs through the many Gears. It's Fun to control a Character from the outside in VR, so the entire Game has a film-like Character. The good Sound often underlines this Impression and thus reinforces the cinematic Feeling. Graphically, Theseus doesn't need to hide, the Dream Environments and the Maze look superb and seem harmless threatening to the Player. Small Details here and there reinforce this Impression further. The Control with the Gamepad is simple and unfortunately a bit straightforward. Actions are displayed when necessary and display which button you have to press. The Fights against the Spider stuff are not difficult, but the thick bull looks different. Here you have to try a lot until you have found a Way. Finding The Way is not so easy thanks to the sometimes poorly chosen Camera positions and you can easily sink your Neck if you have to turn around despite the seating Setting to find the Way or Character. Theseus, though, is a little graphic Treat that comes with a few unfortunate Camera Settings and a simple Control. Always a Recommendation in the Sale. http://store.steampowered.com/curator/32170554/
