It’s almost here! Surgeon Simulator is bringing the ER to VR! The most critically acclaimed and infamous surgery simulation game as you have never seen it before! Built for Vive and featuring all of the surgeries and twisted humour of the original favourite plus a few new surprises…

Surgeon Simulator: Experience Reality transports you into some of the most unlikely and possibly unsanitary surgeries possible. Bob’s life is in your hands in this darkly humorous VR game, taking you closer to bloody surgery than you possibly ever wanted to go! From the operating theatre, to the back of an ambulance, to outer space, your patient’s welfare will be in your virtual hands.

In addition to the original surgeries we’ve added exclusive new features for you to play with in VR. How about brain surgery in the dark? What about a hand-held camera to admire your surgical efforts from any angle? New achievements? It’s all in Surgeon Simulator: ER!

Whatever you do, don’t press that button in space!

3 / 10.0

As it stands, you should absolutely hold off on Surgeon Simulator: Experience Reality for PlayStation VR until the controls are overhauled in the planned update. I ended up having some fun once I learned how to work around those glaring issues to a certain extent, but even in the best of times, it was a struggle. It's a shame the launch went this way, because there's an entertaining VR experience buried in here.

It’s largely the same hilarious, gory surgery sim you know and love, but its mechanics don't translate well to VR.

It's the same game, but in VR. If you didn't like the game before, you won't like it now. It's less frustrating, but a fun little party game to play with friends.

Far less fun than both it could and should have been, Surgeon Simulator ER is undone by poor PSVR implementation and lack of additional content over the previous non-VR release.
