VR Invaders is a story-driven sci-fi arcade shooter, playable with the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. In days gone by, people could only imagine their perfect worlds. Today, all of humanity can live within its dreams. But dreams sometimes turn into nightmares.

A game doesn't always need to be flashy in order to be great. It doesn't need the backing of a major license. Sometimes it just needs to do what it sets out to do very well to stand out above the rest. VR Invaders is a superbly crafted bullet hell VR game that is highlighted not by an ostentatious setting, but rather excellent game design. It's just a shame that excellent game design in VR more often than not means the experience ends far too early, lacking a good balance between mechanics and content.

VR Invaders is a totally average VR wave-based shooter that does absolutely nothing more than work competently. There are many more interesting games available on PSVR.

VR needs something that can be enjoyed timelessly, something that can be picked up and played for 30 minutes or an hour each day and provides some kind of unique fun each time. VR Invaders succeeds at this, with gameplay that is timeless, going back to the fundamental roots of the medium, but unfortunately with the same flaws, too.

VR Invaders: Complete Edition is a ton of fun with tight responsive controls and great graphics and audio. It runs into the same problem many other VR games have right now though and that is that it’s short and doesn’t have a lot of content. It only lasted me around two hours before I kind of got bored with it but in that two hours I had a lot of fun with it. If what is here sounds worth it to you and you don’t mind the short length I highly recommend it.
