Description: Armed with a flashlight, you find yourself exploring what appears to be a quiet average looking home in a woodsy neighbourhood. Before long, you discover you’re not alone as you unravel the mystery of what’s gone on in this house and struggle to survive the terror that begins to hunt you.
This original story, based on the mythology of the massively popular PARANORMAL ACTIVITY film franchise, is built from the ground up for VR. You freely walk through the environment using Room Scale combined with our Immersive Movement Role-play System (IMRS). After the tutorial, you’re on your own. Zero onscreen directions or HUD in your face, you’re never taken out of the immersion all the while exploring the multiple floors of this massive nightmarish house.
Review: Like most horror games in VR Paranormal Activity: The Lost Soul is a pretty scary game and there are more than a few good jump-scares for those who enjoy them. I will even go so far as to say it looks pretty good and stood still you can easily become immersed in its dark world. Sadly it is the movement that is one of the two biggest issues with this game, it feels cumbersome and unnatural, even nauseating at times! The other issue is that there is only a few hours gameplay here and I found myself finishing it within just 4 hours and that means I paid £5 per hour which is not good. But do consider catching it in a sale because it is still a horror experience worth downloading.
