Unearthing Mars VR reviews and comments

"Unearthing Mars VR" is an extremely straightforward, very short adventure game, which is told in 10 Parts and actually only Appeals to players who are not averse to the Theme of Mars. A few Acts are great and atmospheric, most very mediocre and a few a Joke. If it were not VR, there would simply be no Buying. Thoroughly average in Gameplay, presentation, Story and sound, but a Thumbs down would be inappropriate, as the Game will not allow Carvers and will not annoy anyone in itself (at most perhaps the Price). I had the Game completely through in 116 Minutes, so could have refunded it at Steam. However, I have refrained from Doing So, but would recommend that all other Curious people wait for a SALE and then risk a Look.

A really great successful Game about a Story from Mars. I was able to play without any more gross Problems. In the Beginning, I had some Problems with the Sound. Apparently 7.1 and 5.1 are supported, but somehow I had no Sound in the middle field of View. But Could possibly be on my Headset. After switching to "Surround Sound" in the Configuration of the Headset, it works without decency. In Chapter 3, I noticed the Position of the Camera in relation to the Position of the Armchair negatively. One stands more or less inside the Armchair, but at a slightly strange Height. The Reset With the new Button did not bring a Solution. Unfortunately, the Environment on Mars is not as Detailed and sharp in my Opinion as on the Screenshots. Otherwise a solid Game with an exciting Story, unfortunately a little too short. Nevertheless, a clear Buy recommendation from my Side!

I'm torn. Unearthing Mars. A great Story like it might once have looked like on Mars. However, anyone Who expects an Action Shooter here will be sacked. The Game works rather narrative, so it's best to play in sitting. Unfortunately, there is no free Movement unless you control the Rover. The Control of the Protagonists is limited to Teleporting to certain Points. You can spin freely or click with the Controller. Interactions are always displayed. The Rover is driven out of the Third-person penctives, which is a bit irritating, you have to beam again and again behind the Rover so as not to lose sight of it. But if you have that on it, it's easy. The Graphics are very beautiful, but the Mars "inhabitants" look a bit too cute for my Taste ... That, with the biggest Criticism on my part, is. When I saw them, I immediately thought: oh no, not something like that! But Interactions with beings are Limited. The German Syncro is modest, i.e. not Lip Syncron. However, the Votes are well chosen. But you are already happy when a Game gets German Language Support. It's Fun to travel through the sun System as a Copilot with the handsome Commander and Experience adventure. These usually consist of small Etrods that are not difficult to solve. I can recommend this game to any Sci-fi fan. Action lovers should rather leave their Fingers off it. It is also clenched, but this is so rudimentary that you cannot lose at all. The Action Scenes, however, are graphic Eye Snuts! I bought it in the Summersale and I think that if you are interested, you can strike quietly at a reduced Price. 6/10
