A real mind journey. I like the conceptual basis. Different than Titans of Space. It’s not straightforward edu stuff but a bit more abstract, yet still science based. The visuals are immersive and creative. I especially love the black hole chapter. And with Jessica Chastain’s narration… 5 stars for me.
Beautiful, eerie and Mind Bending. Beautiful, eerie and mindbending. This is one of my favourite VR experiences. Space, time and existence. Traveling through wormholes; on the periphery of blackholes getting sucked inside watching the galaxy disappear. This made me feel a sense of Existential awe that I'd always hope to feel in VR. Get it.
Awesome. My go to app to show off to friends.
Incredible. You must experience this
Meh. It’s alright. Kind of boring. Not very scientific.
Hmm…. Found a little boring. Titans of space much better.
Mildly unwhelmed. It’s a nice app. Not what I was expecting. I was expecting a lot more education and interaction instead I feel I was sold a YouTube VR video more or less. I mean that respectfully. I feel this app has a lot of potential of additions are made. More interactions and more education. Create a segment of how the solar system was created. Allow us to interact with the great attractor. Hire me for ideas. I’m available :)
Beautiful epic poem. The beauty of the images and sound is worthy of special mention. This should be appreciated not as an explanation of cosmology, but as a poem inspired by the way the universe is. I enjoyed it very much, but I am a little disappointed that there is an error in the Japanese menu. The title of the second chapter is subtitled at the beginning of the content, even though I selected the third chapter from the menu. When I start and look at it, it is the third chapter. It does not seem appropriate to flag this as there is nothing wrong with the content. Hopefully the producer will notice this review and correct it.
Spectacular Tosh. It's extremely pretty, but if you're expecting to be educated you've come to the wrong place. Its a sort of poetic look at the universe and the "music of the spheres"; it takes the conceit that the planets are singing to each other, and uses scientific terms symbolically rather than scientifically; it even talks about audio waves spreading through space, when audio waves don't exist in a vacuum. And the visuals aren't accurate either, showing our solar system's planets all bunched up around the sun as though they're not very far apart, for instance. I should have been going "ooh" and "ahh" at it, but spent most of my time going What? That's not right!" Definitely not one to buy your kids (or yourself) to teach them about cosmology - it states so many poetic metaphors as if they were facts that they'd come out of it with a completely false view of the universe. It's quite short, too.
A must have for space buffs!￼. ￼ If you’re into the planets, solar system, this is for you especially! ￼If you’re a stargazer, you must get this app! It’s incredibly interactive and immersive. ￼ if you enjoy titans of space, you will definitely enjoy this. The price is right too. I was blown away at the very beginning ￼ by the visuals and the sounds. ￼ As the planets are orbiting you can actually peek inside and get a quick look at what the interior of the planet may look like. ￼￼ It can also be educational depending upon what your level of knowledge is. But it’s a blast for anyone! ￼
I very much hope these developers continue to make more incredible apps like this!
4/5. This is truly a unique experience definitely worth buying, especially when it's on sale. If you're a fan of galaxies and stars, you will thoroughly enjoy this experience as it immerses you in a cosmic atmosphere with interesting interactions using your controllers and HMD.
There are two cons that influenced my rating of 4/5 stars:
1. The absence of subtitles is a significant drawback. It would be highly beneficial to have the option of hearing the Japanese voice overs while reading English subtitles, but unfortunately, this feature is not implemented.
2. I personally dislike the auto-start feature when you point at something. This caused me to begin from chapter 2 instead of chapter 1. It would be great to have the option to manually click and start.
Review. I really love how interactive this is. Never played anything like it and really do hope the devs plan to make a sequel or another version like this. It's very relaxing and informative. Also gives you a different perspective on some things. I really do hope that a sequel is made or another version like this is in the works. I don't regret buying at all. I would encourage those that are astronomy enthusiasts or want something that's relaxing that the Oculus can offer to definitely give this one a chance.
