Picked this up just because I like Remnant: From the Ashes a lot, I wasn't expecting much but I left really impressed with how the foundations for the lore of the world from Remnant are all here.
I also enjoy how a lot of gameplay concepts that were improved for Remnant are already here. The unique weapons, traits, some secrets and puzzles, I can see how this game evolved into the next step.
The gameplay feels a bit clunky, felt like sometimes I was mostly bruteforcing my way through combat, and you can also see the moments thought out for VR and it can feel weird at times in a flat perspective.
I enjoyed the level design and exploration a lot, and playing it as a fan of Remnant, the insight into this piece of the past is a fun experience too.
