Face Your Fears Experience Review

Face Your Fears is a FREE horror and fear-inducing experience and not a game. There is no interaction with the environment beyond selecting the experience you want to view. Even though this is an older VR experience it still holds up very well!

You are presented with 2 doors in front of you. The left side shows a futuristic building and the right shows a house with a child’s bedroom.face your fears vr review oculusscreensho - Face Your Fears VR Review

One is ‘SkyScraper’ Where you will deal with heights, plane crashes, robot battles, and more.

The other is ‘the Haunting’ which has 3 experiences that you select with 3 different books – each book presents a different haunting horror like clowns, a possessed kid, or poltergeist object throwing activities.face your fears vr review faceyourfearsbo e1635551047966 - Face Your Fears VR Review

What Face Your Fears does very well is utilize where you are looking to trigger things to happen on the other side of the screen -just out of your view. After checking out the jack-in-the-box music that is playing on the other side of the room, that spooky doll that was sitting on the shelf has now disappeared.

There is a lot of tension and distraction and looking around in VR. If you remain focused on one side of the room, staring down that doll the experience doesn’t really move on. It waits for you. The second you break eye contact though – poof! The doll is gone.

There is tense music, great lighting, and visuals, and sounds happening all around you to make full use of the 3D world you are in. There are some really good jump scares.

The Gear VR version included several other fear situations, but they are not currently available on the Oculus Rift version.

Does Face Your Fears cause motion sickness?

MayCauseMotionSickness e1619998884307 - Face Your Fears VR ReviewIn Skyscraper, there are a few camera movements that are purposely designed to make your stomach flip and you feel uneasy. This may cause some motion sickness feelings but they should only last for a few moments.

In the Haunting, you are sitting and stationary in a bed as things happen and move around you. There should be no motion sickness issues.

Overall Face Your Fears should not cause extended motion sickness issues, although there may be some brief moments.
