So first hello. I loaded this game right after it was released because I've been waiting a little longer for a mage game for Vive. I have in between the first 2 worlds and would like to draw my first conclusion here. The game is first class for the VR experience. You get a feeling for the fighting system and a top-notch (creepy) atmosphere is built up. But the horror is not so extreme. In my opinion just right for a VR experience. The story is, in as far as my English knowledge is sufficient, exciting. However, the main focus is clearly on combat and magic. The magic system is not very heavy and has been well implemented. It's fun, even if sometimes spells are not recognized 1 to 1. One problem is that if the opponents are too close to you the spells no longer hit. But this can easily be compensated with teleportation. The graphic is ok and sufficient in my opinion. ConclusionPro:-Good spell system-VR experience is present-atmosphere is thrilling. -Much potential-good support by the developer-running smoothly without major bugsContra:-graphics is not the best-if enemies come too close, some spells do not work-some spells are not directly recognized. I would recommend the game to anyone who can do something with a gloomy atmosphere. Especially as I think it is one of the best titles for VR at the moment
