Disturbing without being grotesque. I absolutely cannot wait to return to the Blackwood Sanatorium and make all the (right? wrong?) decisions this time around. The Inpatient is easily the most rewarding horror adventure to be had on the PSVR to date, and a fun puzzle that I still might not have solved quite yet. Just make sure you stick around after the credits roll, especially if you enjoyed Until Dawn.

The Inpatient’s strong opening is undone by a rushed finale, and while the various plot permutations add replayability, they come at the cost of a fulfilling narrative. As a PlayStation VR experience, this is a fine-looking spook-'em-up with some neat innovations that help create a tactile world, but the story is far too fragmented and, frankly, flat to do justice to the universe it’s inspired by.

I came away from The Inpatient genuinely disappointed. There’s such a strong foundation for a narrative horror game in VR, but it’s never utilized in a way that is anything other than boring, especially during the second half. With little to do here besides moving slowly, I’d suggest just looking for a summary of the game rather than actually playing it. That way, you can get all the world building without any of the boring stuff.
