Blind has some technical hiccups that keep it from being a perfect game, but it’s still an incredibly original experience that could only be possible in VR. For VR owners, this is exactly why we’ve bought in as early adapters to this hardware and anyone looking for a new experience should check out Blind. Fans of puzzle games will be right at home and will be thrilled to have such a deep story unfold as they solve the puzzles and move throughout the mansion.
Blind attempts this with a mystery narrative, along with giving you the stick to lean on, but the latter makes it all seem arbitrary, and the former isn’t strong enough to make uncovering answers the true motivator. Blind banks a lot on, well, the blindness being the big draw, but I don’t think using it as simply an extra hurdle on top of familiar puzzle-solving elements does much to elevate the experience as a whole.
Blind is a wildly uneven, generally disappointing trip into virtual reality. Its main sticking point, echolocation, shines when used to its fullest, but more often than not, it doesn’t get put to any real use. In between each of the game’s good puzzles, you’ll encounter large stretches of walking, and probably a smattering of technical problems as well. But hey, at least it won’t take too much of your time. The ending impression with Blind that we were left with was largely one of disappointment. We hoped for, and expected, more.
