Review: While I am not the biggest fan of escape room puzzles I have to say Virtual Escape: The Play Room is one of the better ones. It looks great, the puzzles are easy once you know how to do them, but hard to work out in the first place means there is a real challenge to be had here, but just in case there is a hint system in place anyway. For the money, I think this just about justifies its own asking price. If you love the genre you will really enjoy this game, but this is not one for beginners at all.
