Despite the lack of content Bit Dragon has made a fun new multiplayer arena game in Hyper Jam. Anyone can pick it up and play and things like the perk system and weapons help keep things different enough as you play round to round. Even more importantly is how good it looks and sounds while doing so.
I had hopes for RollerCoaster Tycoon Joyride but they sadly crashed and burned when I got to see what it had to offer. Designing the tracks can be irritating due to a wonky camera, riding the tracks isn’t that thrilling do to lack of speed, and I still wonder why there is a first-person shooter in this.
There is a lot to play through here but there aren’t a lot of options in terms of playstyle. Having more than one weapon to use would’ve been nice and having the option to play with friends online would help this be a more accessible party game.
Despite the lack of a story it’s still hard to not recommend it. It’s a more immersive experience if you play it in PlayStation VR but if you don’t own one it’s worth playing on the TV as well. If you’ve got a few dollars and are in the mood for something new to test your brain with give Neverout a shot.
The world is fun and well worth exploring and I’m very much hoping we see that fourth entry in the future. I just hope that Gunfire Games can work on and greatly improve the technical performance in future titles as it holds Darksiders III back from being truly great.
We had fun while playing Tied Together even though it didn’t last very long. It’s easy for anyone in the family to pick up and play it and the silly nature of it led to quite a few laughs while playing. If it had more levels or more reasons to play the levels that it does have over again I could recommend it more but as it stands right now I’d wait for a sale on it.
I will say that if you enjoyed Resident Evil 7 in VR then I think Home Sweet Home is a must play for you. It may be the scariest title I've played since then thanks to the solid presentation and outstanding audio work that Yggdrazil Group put in here. Being set around Thai myth also helped breathe a little originality into it as well and helped set it apart from all of the other horror titles out there. I'm not sure if it's quite as terrifying on a traditional screen but for VR owners who want a great horror title this is a must.
Some puzzles could've done with being a little less obtuse and some players might have an issue with the length versus the price. I however really enjoyed my time with Blind and recommend it to anyone looking for a dark story and some fun puzzle solving.
While Strange Brigade doesn't necessarily do anything new it does provide a fun third-person shooter experience especially with friends. Its got a great setting, funny dialogue, solid shooting mechanics, and fun ways to kill enemies. I could see Strange Brigade becoming a more well known IP if Rebellion works out some of the issues with this first entry.
Despite the criticisms I have with Firewall Zero Hour currently, they don't take away from just how magical this VR shooter is. I feel like this is the best reason to own a PlayStation VR headset yet as it really shows how pre-established genres can be given new life in ways not possible while playing on a traditional screen. I love the community this game has already built and I'll be staying apart of it for the foreseeable future. Go buy a PlayStation VR, buy an Aim Controller, and buy Firewall Zero Hour because it's too darn good to miss out on.
