Description: ROGAN: The Thief in the Castle is a VR adventure game. Players experience the thrilling life of a thief who has sneaked into a medieval castle full of guards. You will require cunning to survive and make your way through the castle as you use everything a thief has at their disposal: pickpocketing, stealing and stealth.
Review: In images and via the trailer you would expect ROGAN: The Thief in the Castle to be a AAA game that looks simply jaw-dropping and filled with more playability than you can handle. Sadly none of those things are true. The graphics often looked faded and there is a constant hood around your view supposedly to make you feel more like a thief, but it ends up being more annoying than adding any level of immersion. While those things are annoying it is the gameplay that really lets this game down. Its gameplay is linear and no chance of any replay value or diversity of play and the controls are not user-friendly at all, in fact, it takes a fair while just to get used to them when they really didn’t have to be that complicated at all. But the good news is these are things that could be easily fixed so there is hope for this game in future updates. But I suggest you wait for those updates before you give it a go.
