Dexed is the kind of thing you might play a few times, in short sittings, and never return to again. There's not enough here to earn your continued interest, and while the on-rails shooting works well and seems promising at first, the game it's attached to fails to build on that initial seed of an idea.

Dexed is a valiant first attempt by Ninja Theory in the VR space but it suffers like many other early VR titles by feeling more like a tech demo than a full game. When you factor in the price, you are getting an okay package, but it’s unlikely you’ll want to head back once you’ve played through the stages on offer for a few hours.

DEXED brings the classic on-rails shooter genre into a new dimension splendidly and does a superb job of teasing an intriguing concept for a full game.

Unfortunately, Dexed even with its arcade mode looks like a half an hour fun, which you can easily forget after. There is no feeling of adrenaline at high levels of difficulty, simplistic graphics, and the level of 3D immersion is insignificant. However, the price refers to the budget category. Given the fact that the Steam game is two and a half times cheaper in Russia, it can be assumed that in the future PS4 owners can expect a very nice discount. So, if you still want a cheap game for kids and parties, you can wait a bit.
