Unearthing Mars 2: The Ancient War (PSVR) Review | GamePitt

Rob Pitt writes: Back in March 2017, Winking Entertainment published Unearthing Mars for the PSVR headset. It was a two-hour first-person adventure in which you, and your team, land on Mars in order to solve some puzzles and engage in some FPS moments. Personally, I never played the original game but I have heard it was met with a lukewarm reception due to its slow nature until the final combat moments.

As such, Winking Entertainment has just published Unearthing Mars 2: The Ancient War which flips the mechanics on their head and this time focuses heavily on combat and action over puzzles and exploration.

While I still find it dumbfounding that you still managed to like The Walker more than this game, I do have to admit that Unearthing Mars 2 is a definitive improvement over the first game.

Although, I still don't find the story to be that great, both in the first and second game. By now, they should just drop the story completely and just focus more making the gameplay fun and polished.

TBH, if I could go back, I'd probably drop The Walker to around a 7 as I did enjoy playing it but I've clearly played more structured and engaging games since. There are a number of games I would probably re-score if I was able too, I might do an article on it at the end of the year and re-rate a few of the games which I either grew fonder of or stopped playing after review.

Regarding this one though, yeah, I never played the first one but I gather the story and slow segments were the major complaint. With this game, the story got rather messy and hard to follow. By the end, I just turned off for the story and went into 'kill anything that moves' mode. It was still a fun game, but it lost me about 3/4 of the way through.
