Critic Reviews for Arizona Sunshine
Really though, if you're playing this, you're doing so for the satisfying shooting and VR immersion (and because you probably sorely need something new for your PlayStation VR). It is what it is. If you've got the setup needed to make the most of this game, you could do a whole lot worse.
While Arizona Sunshine might have been an incredible game on other VR systems, the PSVR version seems to be lacking due to the platform's limitations. An intriguing narrative and impressive voice acting make Arizona Sunshine an enjoyable, if short, experience. Some minor glitches hold the game back, but excellent sniping and comfortable controls make up for these inconveniences.
It's not hard to see why Arizona Sunshine comes so highly acclaimed: its undead slaughtering story mode is undoubtedly dated, but the novelty of virtual reality keeps it alive. Unfortunately, this PlayStation VR version toys with Sony's full roster of input options, and never really settles upon one that feels right. It's a shame because there is a lot to like here, from the vibrant visuals to the generous helping of solo and multiplayer content – but without a comfortable means of controlling any of it, your enthusiasm will very quickly cool.
As was the case with Farpoint, the Aim Controller is once again the star of the show. For PSVR owners who have already shelled out for the controller, Arizona Sunshine is an easier sell, setting them back £30 rather than the eye-watering £70. Yet, with the other control options severely lacking, for everyone else this game is a tough sell.
