It’s a pity the pricing isn’t as accessible as the action, but this is a fun and unusual online shooter that suits PlayStation VR surprisingly well.

Starblood Arena gets a lot of things right, but it failed to pull me into its world and feels dated on arrival. Although the fact that loot boxes aren't tied to microtransactions is appreciated, it would have been much better served as a budget or even free-to-play game to help push the PlayStation VR. It's weird to see the PlayStation VR launch with RIGS, an insanely polished game from a now defunct Guerrilla Cambridge, then put out Starblood months later.

Starblood Arena is an inmersive PSVR shooter, that lacks of game modes and different arenas. Game progression is limited to visual elements, and sometimes can make you dizzy.

As we saw with RIGS and how Sony abruptly axed its life support, the same could very well happen to StarBlood Arena and that's a bloody shame. I want this game to do well, I really do, but as a multiplayer VR title with a non-existent server population and an exorbitant price tag, it's fighting an impossible fight.
