Siân O'Brien reviewed Enigmista by Escape Reality Birmingham:

I don't find Escape Reality particularly atmospheric and the staff are too busy to dedicate a GM to any group. 

As this is a scary room, we did ask how scary and our GM was very descriptive, which wasn't what I wanted. He gave too much away, but in a confusing way that actually resulted in us wasting time some times doing what we thought we were supposed to do, based on the hints that we'd had. It would have been much better if he just hadn't said anything. 

Overall, the story was good, the execution was OK, the set was quite flat and sparse but we did have a good time. A couple of red herrings threw me, so if you find there's something you can't figure out, try moving on to something else because you might be trying to find something that isn't there.

This is one of those 'creepy' games which isn't quite as scary as you might like!  We sailed through the first two thirds of the game, then got hung up on something daft and wasted lots of time.  The room was quite well dressed, compared with some, and there had been some effort to carry the theme throughout the room.

This is one of those 'creepy' games which are never quite as scary as they could be.  We sailed through the first two thirds of this game, then got really hung up on something daft and wasted lots of time.  Enjoyable, and the dressing of the room is much better than some of their others.

Anonymous reviewed Bank Job by Escape Reality Birmingham:

Something went badly wrong with this game.  I'm still not sure whether a padlock was in the wrong place or whether it was left unlocked.  We escaped with several puzzles left uncompleted.  In fairness, we received a credit note for our spoiled game, but the game host wasn't especially interested in working out what had gone wrong.

Anonymous reviewed Iron Kingdom by Escape Reality Birmingham:

Not having seen Game of Thrones, I didn't quite 'get' the theme until someone explained it afterwards. It was OK but nothing special.

Siân O'Brien reviewed Iron Kingdom by Escape Reality Birmingham:

I really enjoyed this and can't wait to visit Escape Reality again, especially to do their harder rooms! The reasons I couldn't give 5 stars is because it was less atmospheric than previous rooms I've done. The story introduction is explained by the Games Master, so there's no real effort there. And the set was quite flat with textureless wall paper. The puzzles are good though. We had a great time. 

Rated between 40 and 40 out of 5
