    Arca’s Path combines fun and accessible gameplay with an amazingly intuitive and inventive control scheme. What could have been a debacle is instead a triumph. Arca’s Path is a small game with giant ideas, and it deserves attention and praise for the ridiculously high level at which it is executed.

    You control Arca's Path with nothing but your head and thanks to the game's sublime head tracking it's possible to be very precise. Add varied level design to the mix and you'll know you're dealing with an interesting experience. However, the whole thing will be over in just three hours, which isn't all that many.

    Arca's Path strips away familiar virtual reality gimmicks and gives players a serene, occasionally challenging puzzle game that requires no controllers, just the simple motion of your head. Though it runs quite short, it's a peaceful space that offers another glimpse at what the platform offers.

    There’s no denying that Arca’s Path is a safe debut from DRI (or at least as safe as you can get with VR), but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth your time. This is a perfectly palatable little marble maze that straddles the line between challenge and fairness with mostly successful results. Most importantly, though, it’s that rare VR game that genuinely feels like anyone can pick up and play. For DRI, I suspect that’s mission accomplished.

    I’m glad it exists simply to try things outside of the box in VR, but this is a building block, not a definer.

    Arca's Path is a simple game with some nice challenges and some nice level designs, and never becomes too difficult to allow all ages a chance to enjoy.

    For a while, Arca's Path promises to be a new kind of VR game, but in the end its problems are all too familiar. [Jan 2019, p.121]

    Really loved this! Area's Path is innovative and enjoyable. This handset-free game really feels like a step in the right direction for VR. ItReally loved this! Area's Path is innovative and enjoyable. This handset-free game really feels like a step in the right direction for VR. It merges a simple concept (ball rolling) with no need for any kind of controller. You have a lot of control over the ball which feels really sophisticated and you can take your time completing levels. Would definitely recommend to anyone trying out VR for this first time. Expand
