Review: Journey for Elysium (PC VR)

A short trip to the afterlife.

For the past several months now, we have offered up glimpses of the story-driven VR adventure title Journey for Elysium. We saw a game that had a unique visual style, the promise of a story that would take us all to an afterlife, a world filled with architecture inspired by Greek mythology, and mind-bending puzzles to solve. The unique visual style was certainly eye catching, but I often wondered if the rest of the game would be able to hold up to this aesthetically pleasing presentation.

With the release of Journey...

  • Planet Coaster By Former RollerCoaster Tycoon Developers is the Spiritual Sequel You Wanted

    Back in the day, a studio called Frontier Developments worked on RollerCoaster Tycoon 3. Since then they went on to work on a number of titles including Screamride for the Xbox and now Planet Coaster for the PC. This is perhaps everyone's best bet when it comes to a spiritual successor to RCT3, because there are probably no other developers more qualified to give that to you than the people who actually made RCT3.

    There are a bunch of pre-order options for you to take a look at. Pre-order prices start around $30 (USD).
