Accounting+ Review – Great fun but Still Very Short

Although the game Accounting+ may not necessarily be on everybody’s Christmas list, it is certainly an interesting addition to the collection. It is a great Playstation VR game that transports you into a world of very surrealist dreamscapes. It is available today for the price of $11.99 and is well worth picking up.

Accounting+ is a Very Unique Experience

People who own a PC VR headset may have played the original Accounting game before last year. This “new ” version of the PlayStation VR adds a lot more content and more secrets to discover. The main concept of this game is still exactly the same, as you need to traverse throughout surrealist dreamscapes. Moving around in this game –  at least on PlayStation VR – is done through teleportation, a method that works pretty well in this particular game.  Unfortunately, this also means that, for other platforms, there will not be any room scale VR support, which is a small downside.

As you would expect from this type of game, it’s not immediately clear what to do. Working on various tasks mays seems pointless at first, but everything serves a purpose. Speaking of purpose, your job is to piss off or kill locals in various different ways, ranging from horrible to brutal and everything in between. As you go through these various incidents, you learn a bit more about the background story and your role in all of this. While there is not much story to go around, it is good to see the developers strip out any unnecessary content in this regard.

It is evident the content you come across in Accounting+ are pretty hilarious. While some decisions you have to make are not necessarily exciting, everything seems to play out in such a manner you will have a good chuckle at the end. Unfortunately, the game is pretty much over in around 90 minutes or less, which is a bit short. It certainly feels a lot longer, though, and there are plenty of options to replay the game. It’s a great game to pick up, waste a few hours on, and move on to something else.

Whether or not this added content warrants the price of $11.99 for Accounting+, remains to be seen, though. It is still a pretty high price for a game which has little to offer in terms of content. On the other hand, the game is incredibly fun, offers plenty of controller options, and shows what virtual reality is capable of in its current form. It may be best to wait for a small price drop before picking up Accounting +, although we still had a lot of fun playing it.
