Psychonauts in VR is a pretty great nostalgia trip
This review is going to be a little biased.
I love Psychonauts. I’ve played through the original more times than I can count, and have a deep appreciation for the world and its characters. If it were possible to camp out behind Double Fine’s offices and watch everyone work on Psychonauts 2, I would do so. Yeah, I’m one of those people and I jumped at the opportunity to play Psychonauts In The Rhombus Of Ruin through PlayStation VR. After all, what could be better than being fully immersed in a game world you already know you love?
Truth is, this game is not simply “Psychonauts in VR”. When you put the headset on, you’re stepping into the weird and wonderful world of Psychonauts, but the way you interact with this world and the unique new way you interact with each of these characters creates an incredible new experience.
