Great app, astonishing actually The Guardian was the best newspaper in the world in my estimation but garnering sympathy for murderers, rapists, and thieves is part of a corrupt uneducated liberal agenda of pure insanity. Liberal ideology is fine and desperately needed in todays climate but a lot of it has run amock. IMO criminals should be shot dead. no sympathy. The Guardian will result in a poisonous idealogy empowering both local and foreign terrorists and criminals.
Great app, great VR experience But you can tell which comments are from Guardian readers. 'Powerful', 'evocative', 'devastating'? This is not an opera, but a brief insight into what it's like for a pretty serious criminal to live here. Oh do I detest liberalism. Criminals deserve to be punished.
Politics aside, this is a solid if early attempt at taking VR beyond mere entertainment. Moreover, in and by itself the piece is quite apolitical, although it may be hard not to come to some conclusions. Also, this probably should be shown to first-time offenders, just to suggest what may happen if they choose a life of crime.
The Guardian Might as Well Become an IT Company I mean their IT products are really solid. For this app: the cinematography I'd say isn't the best, but the VR quality is good.
it's kinda of disapointing but im still giving it 5 stars because it's a good start. i'd like to see a more in depth version that actually talks about how its really bad for the rehabilitaion of criminals. i've seen some comments saying that oh its just criminals being locked up these are the same people that saying water boarding is good.....until they try it. i also hate the comments saying this is a master peice.....as far as VR it's among the best mobile apps so far....but its not something you couldnt get out of a youtube video
There's no way to really capture the sense of dread you'd get from this type of torture if you can quit at any time, but this brings awareness to an important issue, and I want to thank the developers for making it.
