Description: Edge of Nowhere is a third-person VR adventure from acclaimed independent developer Insomniac Games. Victor Howard is on a journey to find his fiancée, Ava Thorne, who is part of a lost expedition in Antarctica. His rescue mission takes a sudden turn as he ventures deeper into a dark monstrous world where reality warps and twists around him. Desperate to find the one he loves, Victor must encounter disturbing monsters and scale looming ice walls as he descends further into madness. In Edge of Nowhere, nothing is what it seems and the unexpected lurks from all sides.

Review: When it comes to 3rd person adventure games in VR Chronos proved it can work and work very well. So now we have another one called Edge of Nowhere. This time, you play as Victor Howard who is looking for is fiancée Ava Thorne who has gone missing in Antarctica. But you soon discover there is more going on than a simple missing person.

You soon find yourself fighting monsters, climbing ice cliffs and running to avoid being smashed to a pulp. Inside VR it can sometimes feel like you are facing a massive adventure ahead of you and you can easily start to fear for your own real world life. The running sequences are the most exciting and you feel your heart racing faster and faster to stay ahead of what you are running from.

Edge of Nowhere is just not as polished as Chronos is. The gameplay is slower, the voice acting annoying and you never really feel part of the story. Sadly you can also finish the game in four hours easy, but due to the repetitiveness of the scenery, you will be happy it doesn’t last that long. While I did love the game in some parts I feel it’s just not worth the asking price, but if you got it for under a tenner in a sale of some sort, you might be satisfied with the value for money.
