Review: The Ruins: VR Escape the Room comes from a good calibre of games before it and while it is yet another escape the room style game it has a lot going for it out of the sables. First of all it looks good and is one of the best looking escape room games I have played and even the sound effects are pretty good with some nice voice acting and narration. While that all sounds good this game is not worth anywhere near the £2.89 asking price. This is due to the game lasting no longer than 10-15 minutes! It’s like…that was the point? It’s more a paid demo than a game! The good news is there are better games by the same makers, so spend your money on them instead.
