Dr Who The Edge of Time 

 

I have seen a fair amount of the Dr Who television show. I have not watched the most current doctor for a variety of reasons. I am not a fan of how the direction the BBC has taken the show. I put that aside to play Dr Who The Edge of Time on the PS4 VR. There are moments this virtual reality video game shines. Then there are moments where I just shake my head. Exterminating everything as a Dalek makes me question the Everyone Six and older rating. The ESRB has been failing families for so long we have come to expect it.

Family Friendly Gaming was given a digital download code for Dr Who The Edge of Time. Every single person who played this virtual reality game had to stop after 20-30 minutes. We tag teamed the two hours it takes to get through Dr Who The Edge of Time. Expect the game to give you hints on what needs to be done next. Which is nice, but it also helps shorten the game play time.

Movement in Dr Who The Edge of Time gave us headaches very quickly. We move in VR with the left joystick on the controller. This felt weird standing or sitting while playing. The dark graphics were also a problem. Want to know something really strange about Dr Who The Edge of Time? We have to use a flashlight at one point. The range of the light of the flashlight is limited and feels wrong. I ran into other glitches in Dr Who The Edge of Time as well. Restarting the entire system got me past crashes.

Dr Who The Edge of Time is a very slow game. The pace of the television shows is much faster. At times this felt like Dr Who, and other times it felt like a very slow puzzle game. Which ended about the same time a Dr Who movie would. I loved finding things, and building things in Dr Who The Edge of Time. Sadly those were very limited parts of this game. We are always being threatened by something. Dr Who The Edge of Time feels more horror than science fiction.

Getting to operate the Tardis was cool until I realized it was a simple Simon Says mini game. Dr Who The Edge of Time is a 3.3 gig download on the PS4. I had moments like when the intro happened. That was an epic moment. The rest of Dr Who The Edge of Time was not so great. It was neat using the Sonic Screwdriver and helping out that female doctor. I felt like an assistant. It would have been great to have gotten to play one of the cooler earlier doctors.
