While there’s definitely promise in the concept of Wolfenstein: Cyberpilot, the shiny visuals don’t make up for the lack of content and subpar execution. It’s a decent showpiece for the PSVR, but at this point in the platform’s lifecycle something with more meat is the expectation.

Assetto Corsa Competizione provides a satisfying driving experience but like it’s predecessor – Assetto Corsa, it leaves the driver a bit wanting at times.

Killing Floor 2 and Killing Floor Incursion go together like Rocky and Adrian. Each game has gaps. But different gaps that complement one another. Put together they give you a gameplaying experience where the sum is greater than the individual parts.

Because of the lightness in content, Everybody’s Golf feels like an early access version of the game. At least the game is priced accordingly. Fortunately, the paucity of content is offset by the strong technical and gameplay aspects of the VR presentation.

80 / 100 - Gato Roboto
Jun 3, 2019

Gato Roboto is polished, and there is no doubt a certain naive charm to the game, aided by catchy music and sound effects.

Bow to Blood is a solid game elevated by the procedurally generated levels and the morality system.

While the aesthetics of the game are decent, like the graphics and the music, this feels and plays like a Flash-based mobile game. Both the mining and game mechanics are a real grind that doubtless will deter most players from digging too deep.

60 / 100 - Smash Hit Plunder
Jan 27, 2019

So the game has charm, looks cool, and sets up a fairly interesting narrative to drive you to pay off the castle debt but then you start playing. The first five or ten minutes are fun as you pick up objects and throw or break them to see if they are hiding any treasure. Any discovered treasure you pick up to pay off your debt when you return to the castle base room. And that’s it.

85 / 100 - Borderlands 2 VR
Dec 19, 2018

In the end, the parts that work well, even the driving mechanic allows for a first-person view, all add to a very engaging VR experience.

70 / 100 - Neverout VR

Neverout is a pleasant diversion in VR but one that only scratches the surface of its potential.

62 / 100 - Road Redemption
Nov 24, 2018

It’s fun for awhile but the thrills soon peter out as the scope of combat feels so locked down and restrained compared to what you can do in other games. The inherent limitations of the overall game concept really stand out and the one trick pony nature of a Road Rash game just doesn’t fly today.

75 / 100 - Déraciné
Nov 17, 2018

Déraciné is an engaging VR adventure with a tinge of darkness to it that other such games often shy away from. There is a frisson of tension in this story that drives you forward through the conservative VR gameplay mechanics to find out if FromSoftware’s reputation for dark material will eventually surface.

In the end, Grip has all the prerequisite gameplay and technical elements. Yet the randomness of the environments and the clunky air handling left little to be desired.

Astro Bot Robot Rescue is more than an extension of flat screen platforming, it is the next evolutionary step that all family members will enjoy.

All these negatives add up to a real downer experience in which that should have left us soaring.
