Firstly, the set looks absolutely gorgeous it's a large room with a very good use of the space. Sadly, we didn't get along with the puzzles, finding them mostly arduous, and tacky. (Which is ironic based on the overuse of blu-tack in this game)
My friend played this a long time before I did and kept raving that it's one of their favorite games. Upon discussing it afterwards it was clear several things were broken, she had a very clever technical first puzzle, where we had cheap greetings cards blu-tacked to the wall of the SPACE ship.

This game was amazing!  I personally love a good padlock, but I certainly didn’t miss them in this game!  High tech, great story, really felt like you were on a spaceship.  Awesome game.

This room is amazing! The room has been done out fantastic and is extremely realistic. The puzzles inside are great, lots of fun and there are no locks involved. Very original and I have not seen any other rooms with puzzles like this. This room is worth travelling for and the best I have ever done.

Wow! We loved this room for how immersive it is and how the puzzles weave together so intuitively. This is a truly immersive game with some really enjoyable physical elements. Fantastic.

value for moneyhi-techimmersive

Let me start by saying, I am NOT a Sci-Fi fan, so was not expecting to enjoy this room. I am extremely happy to report, my expectations were wrong. I LOVED this room. I felt like I was on an actual Spaceship, and special shout out to the clue system, very funny and interest way of doing it. 
The ending of this room is unique as well, and such fun. 

The room required a lot of communication for its puzzles, and we were tripped up by ourselves not remembering what we hadn't done. There is one puzzle in here that frustrated the heck out of me personally,  but only because im rubbish at that sort of thing, luckily my friend was great. 

Yeah, from start to finish, I thought this game had a nice flow, and as i've said before, proves Enigma Hull doesnt have a bad game.

Reviews by escape room review sites

One of many life lessons I've learned from escape rooms is, if you're awaking from stasis on a spacecraft, you can be pretty sure you're in mortal peril. Impact's flavour of peril is the exploding ship sort rather than the marauding alien type, but you'll need to do some rapid fixing up to make it out.

Our briefing included assignment of different crew roles to each player. It might have been nice if those roles had been directly used within the game a little more, but it was still a great way ...

Wow, and I mean WOW! There was something incredibly special about Impact...
