Quote: "Westworld Awakening is one of the most emotionally engaging VR games I've ever played. "
Some impressions from Steam:
"First, graphically this is probably the most impressive VR game I've tried so far. I'm using an Index, 9700k and 2080ti so granted I'm going to see the best it has to offer. That being said, it's still incredibly impressive. "
"That was simply beautiful. If you're a fan of the show, and ever wondered what it'd be like to experience a host's story that runs concurrent to the show, this is it. Played on Index HMD + Vive Wands. i9 + 1080ti, maxed in-game settings, and it ran pretty much smooth as butter."
"This is a fantastic production. Everything you would expect from a title linked with Westworld and their intelligent storylines, twists, and Survios talent for making some of the best VR titles on the planet. It seemed to come from nowhere, no previous press releases. I own the largest arcade in the UK and I had no idea this title was coming to mine (still dont know for sure) but I am going to press my supplier to get it quickly so we can offer it to Westworld fans that dont have VR. We have Vive Pros and I have one at home and it runs great on my home rig, an RTX2060 I5. I put the graphics to the max and it ran perfectly. The graphics are spectacular. The story is brilliant, and, if you are a Westworld series fan and have a VR set then its a no brainer I am sure. I am only one chapter in, but am going to pace the enjoyment, like I do the series, and do a chapter every now and then."
"The voice acting, the graphics, the animations, the game mechanics, music and the story are OUTSTANDING. This game right here, shows the true potential of story telling and immersion in VR. I am incredibly impressed by my experience thus far. I have only completed 2/5 chapters and im 1.5 hours in. The mechanics at use here are something ive not seen before in VR games, at least not at this level of quality. The price of admission is WORTH IT, you are paying for a quality experience here, everyone who owns a headset needs to play this. There was an article mentioning this was an experience. Well yea, this is one friggin incredible gaming experience. This truly feels like a AAA VR game, in every sense of the word but thrown into a 5 hour game [...] Ive owned VR for 3 years now, and i feel like im experiencing it again for the first time because of this game. Im absolutely loving this. To the dev team and HBO, well done. You have set a new bar for VR gaming and story telling.
