Flying in zero-G, users propel themselves through the derelict Horus Space Station using a few methods, be it a retracting grappling hook, air booster, or by pushing off the station’s internals such as bulkheads and comm panels.
In our review, we thought Downward Spiral: Horus Station skimped on two crucial elements to the adventure however: story and gunplay. Despite this, it’s undeniably atmospheric and visually stunning. A soundtrack created by ex-HIM front man Ville Valo certainly sets the stage.
In addition to the campaign mission, Downward Spiral includes eight-player PvP and PvE multiplayer modes including Deathmatch, Horde and Survivor challenges. Despite the game’s misgivings, there’s a lot to like about Downward Spiral: Horus Station, so we’re definitely hoping the game’s slick visuals translate despite the PSVR’s graphical limitations.
