2.5 / 5.0 - Hand of Fate 2
Jul 25, 2018

The sense of accomplishment is real when it happens, but it’s impossible to ignore the feeling that victory wasn’t entirely due to gaming prowess.

Island Time VR is a lot of fun for those precious few minutes you find yourself in its world.

This is just a charming game. The art style is like a watercolor painting come to life

Blasters of the Universe is easily the most physical VR game I've ever played.

While the environmental storytelling is solid, the writing and voice acting lack polish.

Given how great the rest of the game is, I'd have been willing to overlook some aesthetic deficiencies, but it beat my expectations on every level.

But there's far too much wrong here for me to recommend The Deer God.

Dec 20, 2017

Mirrim's puzzles stumped me, left me scratching my head, and then made me feel like an idiot when I figured them out.

68 / 100 - Astro Bears Party
Oct 16, 2017

Bust this out at a party for 30 minutes of fun, but don't expect your friends to beg for more at the next get together.

The Solus Project does what it sets out to do — immerse you in a dangerous environment for a dozen or so hours and task you with surviving long enough to experience the story. While I wish there was a bit more to the plot, and while the controls frustrated me, it's a fairly solid exploration and survival game. The VR component makes it worth investing some time in.

The music is repetitive and boring.

If Knack's track record has you worried, I'll say this; Mark Cerny and company heard the complaints, and this is their response.

If corners were cut with the graphics, they were completely rounded over and sanded down in the music and sound department.

74 / 100 - CastleStorm (VR)
Aug 2, 2017

CastleStorm VR is a relatively enjoyable game with an addictive loop, and it's easy to lose hours to it. While I wish more was done on the VR side, it's a solid addition to the game. It doesn't do much to improve the lackluster story or repetitive gameplay, however. Addictive or not, some variety would not hurt at all.
