8 / 10.0 - Into the Radius
Mar 5, 2021

Into the Radius is an ambitious STALKER-like VR game, so deep in its sci-fi survival features that it feels like a real "Roadside Picnic Simulator". The development team is very small and, in technical terms, the experience is very far from perfect, but also capable of immersing you in a scary and iper-realistic Zone.

8 / 10.0 - The Climb 2
Mar 4, 2021

The Climb 2 remains too unbalanced in muscle activity to really perform the task of the only fitness game in VR. If that's your purpose, it must necessarily go hand in hand with other "sports" virtual reality experiences, including the well-researched FitXR and VRWorkout.

Jurassic World Aftermath is limited to the exploratory part, with the classic character remotely indicating the objectives while a beastly unscripted IA, a Velociraptor specifically, hunts us down. A mix however capable of intrigue and push the player forward, provided that he respects some fundamental prerogatives of the subgenre. And yes, Jurassic World Aftermath makes it.

9 / 10.0 - Pistol Whip
Dec 9, 2020

Pistol Whip is an excellent and original VR Rhythm FPS, now even more unmissable with the free 2089 DLC. Great on PC VR, but even better wireless on Oculus Quest or Quest 2.

It must be said that uploads after each defeat can yield, and that for the same reason we hope that their duration, in any case a few seconds, will be further optimized; in all cases, however, the surprising degree of challenge of Star Wars Tales from the Galaxy's Edge should still be hailed as a positive.

8.5 / 10.0 - In Death
Jul 23, 2020

Both versions of In Death - VR PC systems or Oculus Quest - keep the main strengths of the game, in the form of an "otherworldly" archery roguelite which is not afraid to raise the bar of difficulty in virtual reality. As in other cases, the developers of Sólfar Studios have swapped the best visual performance of the PC edition (for Rift, Rift S, Vive and Index) with the freedom offered by the all-in-one nature of Quest, in a game where the charisma of the setting still comes before the graphic details. The exploration progresses slowly and this lacks a bit of variety, but overall fun is guaranteed.

8.6 / 10.0 - Phantom: Covert Ops
Jun 26, 2020

The idea of ​​this exclusive Oculus stealth VR action is the intriguing and truly simulative ones - as it was in the sci-fi field for Lone Echo - capable of justifying the "only" tracing of the head and hands directly with the structure of the game and its environmental context, behind enemy lines with a military kajack equipped to advance and strike silently. If played on Rift S, the parallel design for Quest is all too evident, especially at a polygonal level, and clearly the variety of the action stops at some point, but the great atmosphere, the good level of challenge, the intelligent writing of the plot and a well thought out length (one night in real time, in substance) make Phantom Covert Ops a VR title however highly recommended.

9.8 / 10.0 - Half-Life: Alyx
Mar 28, 2020

Valve selects the best features of VR action games and takes them to another level. Half-Life: Alyx is not innovative in choosing what is needed for the perfect virtual reality experience – between interactivity of the environment, gestural use of firearms or environmental puzzles – but it is in putting together everything in the style of Half-Life. The kind of first person game that made the series famous, and forever changed the action adventure into a "before and after Gordon Freeman", returns to linear origins without genres contamination, becoming an immersive sim only for what falls within our view, or what we can physically accomplish in a crazy City 17. Masterful.

The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners is, overall, a great VR zombie survival game. Its strengths are not constant in all aspects, even from a technical point of view, but the good challenge and the articulated structure make it a must for fans of the genre.
