Description: Experience a Halloween night in Mountain peaks, Northern Canada. Famous for its Horror Festival. You go out with your friends, trick or treating, entering haunted themed houses as you make your way to the big party, but this year’s holiday of the afterlife brings something sinister. Are the legends true? Find out for your self. Play in Virtual Reality. Explore highly detailed environments, search for items, weapons, notes to clues, keys and use caution to help you survive the night.
Review: Sinister Halloween is a horror survival game which is pretty clearly not made for VR at all and was made with PC 2D screen gameplay in mind. The game itself is not terrible at all with 5 great looking levels to play. If you got this for some Halloween gameplay it might be good for a short while but with the terrible voice acting and dodgy controls (in VR anyway), I just can’t see this game being worth the full £7.19 asking price. The good news is there is a free demo to try before you buy and I feel playing that should put most people off buying the full game. Maybe one to look for in a sale, but there are far better games to play at a VR Halloween party out there.
