Old Gods Rising is an unfortunate mess. While it has a story that immediately hooks the player, a world that's begging to be explored and understood, and boasts fantastic environmental sound design, the current state of the game is unplayable. The numerous bugs and glitches restrict this game from being a great title. Until those bugs are patched out, you're better off spending your money elsewhere.
VirtuaVerse is a low cost, high content title with one of the best stories available in the cyberpunk game genre. The visuals are top tier, as is the soundtrack, and it's very easy to get hooked on this point and click title. However, you might need a guide to complete this one, as it's pretty easy to get stuck or lost on your objective.
The Room VR: A Dark Matter is great. It's got plenty of unique puzzles, which never felt overused once, and has some very creative environments. It also has a deeply mysterious story, which was designed in the same vein as the original mobile games in the series. Consequently, in the same vein as those, it didn't feel like it was a completely new and authentic VR experience. The developers didn't utilise all that VR is capable of, which is a real bummer for what this title could have ultimately been.
It's an ok VR title on its own that most should consider buying if they're new to the platform to ease into VR controls. Though the story is very bland and it feels more like a concept than a fully-fledged title, it's the gameplay that keeps you playing just that bit longer before you release how repetitive those levels are.
911 Operator really misses the mark. It's a good attempt at showing what a 911 operator may do, but you're effectively playing a mobile game on the Switch for the cost of a PC game. That $22 price point is a bit excessive, especially since various bugs and quality-of-life issues you'll get are really frustrating to deal with on the Switch.
Not many games have you play the underdog from beginning to end. It's tense, and each passing day keeps you on edge. You'll be emotionally invested in trying to keep your members, friends, family, and even strangers safe as you make choices that will shape your life and their future. Although a second playthrough doesn't hit the same way emotionally as the first, it's still a fantastic title to understand the heart-wrenching reality of that period.
Lies Beneath is one of those horror games that's so tense and stressful but will keep you stuck behind your headset for hours. Though this game may have a few issues, its cel-shaded art style and fun game mechanics are what sets it as a must-have for VR horror fans. It's got all the hallmarks of being a great, immersive VR title. It certainly doesn't disappoint.
