“[Heart of the Emberstone has] evolved to meet our heightened expectations of the second year of VR content, and yet again left us begging for more.”
9/10 – Upload VR

“It’s pretty rare that excellent voice acting, competent art direction, and a fully-realized world with a truly interesting story come together at once, so excuse me if I let out a well-deserved “wow."”
9/10 – Road to VR

“[Heart of the Emberstone] does a fantastic job of breaking away from the stigma of short, proof-of-concept VR titles to deliver a quality narrative experience that’s a must-have for any fan of the genre.”
8.5/10 – GameCrate
