Believe the video game hype, like Catacombs, you come here for the experience, not the puzzles. I certainly felt like I was missing my controller at one point (I suffered with motion sickness at one stage which is a first). It's a slick operation they are polishing, I'm not sure if this is an escape room as we know them, it almost needs its own category.
I was expecting this to be more adventure than escape room, but what I wasn't expecting was the pure unadulterated video game vibe throughout. Your adventure starts with a slick movie trailer introduction which could easily grace any cinema, and then you were straight into the action as you uploaded into your avatar who was rapidly moving through an urban environment.
The entire adventure made me reminiscent of Assassins Creed and Mirrors Edge, but without being a blatent copy. Theres a banging sountrack that fits with the activity you're currently in and the entire game area is HUGE!
Possibly one of the most OMG! moments is the amoutn of damamge and carnage you can create, you can destroy so much. It was a real rollercoaster of a ride and as long as you don't mind the puzzles taking a supporting role here thenyou'll have a blast!
Absolutely loved it!
The trailers make me think of the movie "Hardcore Henry", and while this doesn't have that sort of budget, a lot of the bits are there. It's definitely less puzzly, and it's interesting how this is almost trying to be like a video game when video games are trying to be like real life. I'm not sure I'd play it again, and I definitely couldn't play it in real life, but I'm definitely glad I didn't miss this.
