The virtual reality in CastleStorm VR does not add much to the original game's formula, that still remains as exciting as four years ago.

CastleStorm crops up everywhere, so chances are you've already played this game before. To be fair, the PlayStation VR version improves on what's come before, by leveraging the technology to give you a better view of the battlefield before you. The game's still a little overcomplicated for our tastes, but those who like multitasking may enjoy that aspect. And if you do, then the addictive reward loop and customisable castles will probably keep you hooked longer than you anticipate.

CastleStorm VR is the same awesome experience from a new visual perspective. The core game remains as fun and polished as ever, but the perspective offered with the GearVR adds a fresh take on the battlefield. Unfortunately, the same can’t be said for the perspectives used between battles.

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.
