“Chronos is an interesting mix of mechanics with an arguably slow gameplay loop, yet it’s clearly an experience that’s more than the sum of it’s parts. The pacing lends itself to the compulsion to see what lies in wait in the next room, and though the occasional puzzle or environment layout can lead to a bottleneck there’s rarely a point during the videogame’s extensive campaign that is cause for disappointment. Chronos is a genuinely compelling videogame that sets a high standard for Gunfire Games to follow with their next VR project.” – Read VRFocus’ Editor Kevin Joyce’s review of Chronos.
