Description: Awaken on the Starship Avalon as it hurtles past Mars towards the Homestead Colony. You quickly realize that there are critical malfunctions onboard and fellow passenger Jim Preston needs your help to fix them. You’ll master the Polaris Multi-Tool to solve a series of puzzles while navigating the many rooms of the luxury spaceship. Every moment counts as you race to save the other 5,000 sleeping passengers and join Jim in a climactic spacewalk on the outside hull of the ship.
Review: I have good news and bad news for you. The good news is not all VR apps and games based on movies are terrible, in fact, some of them are pretty good! The bad news is ‘Passengers: Awakening VR Experience’ isn’t one of them, in fact, it might be the worse I have played in VR. You don’t need me to tell you that this is pretty much an advert for the 2016 thriller called “Passengers” with Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt. And if you thought that movie was bad, this is on a whole different level and really should have been free given that it lasts little more than 15 mins and it’s not like it looks amazing neither. This is one VR advert to stay away from, but why on earth they tried to charge for this in the first place I will never know.
