Anticipated Title Syren Got Negative Steam Reviews for Bugs and Blurry Graphics
Syren was an anticipated adventure VR title in early 2017 but all it got was a disappointed launch. Like many titles claimed to be "3A", Syren showed eye-catching screenshots and promising trailers but at the end it had serious issues in the graphics at launch. Steam users reported the game was very blurry even at the highest graphics setting, and more people complained about bugs and glitches.
The developer released a patch to fix the graphics. "We've deployed our first update patch due to community feedback about the visual sharpness. We've upped the resolution settings for normal and high, as well as adding a new ultra setting," the dev post said. As of this news is published, the game is still marked "mostly negative" on Steam. We'll keep tracking on the community's feedback.
2016 wasn't a year for VR gaming. There was no hit title but some disappointed ones. VR gaming along with the technologies may still need another year to become a mainstream. What do you think?
