Built for PlayStation VR and Oculus Rift, the game immerses players in a lush, virtual world, where physical interaction using two controllers is core to both gameplay and exploration. You can pick up books and read them or operate various tools with your own hands.

Loading Human: Chapter 1 is a flawed start to what might become an interesting journey down the line. While the execution was sloppy, I’m invested in Prometheus and Alice (you never forget your first VR kiss, after all), and am looking forward to finding out what happens next. If the puzzle design gets better and the controls fine-tuned, then Loading Human might be able to turn into something worth the high asking price.
Going through the three to four hours of Loading Human: Chapter 1 is an exercise in patience. You endure the slow walking. You steel yourself for annoying puzzles. You sit through bland conversations. The story jumps around, and you wait for things to escalate and grab your attention. And while the climax of the game tries to be impactful, swelling music and a grand subject, the visuals and cinematography fall flat.
The story, albeit short, is solid enough to keep you interested, but clunky controls that make completing even simple tasks feel like a pain causes Loading Human to be a frustrating experience overall.
