Farpoint is weak as a shooter but strong as one of the most complete PS VR experiences. Playing it with DualShock 4 is acceptable but definitively the best way to shoot aliens is with the terrific PS VR Aim Controller. If you put aside the boring level design you'll have pretty good shooting action with the additional challenges.

Without mentioning the co-op, Farpoint offers not enough to keep you hooked in it's shallow world for more than 4-6 hours.

Though Farpoint doesn’t boast much depth, and at times it feels like little more than a shooting gallery, Farpoint stands as a pivotal milestone in the journey of VR as a viable, successful platform.

One of most immersive VR games where you'll feel like you're really fighting aliens, but the repetitive gameplay with its horde of enemies wears you down after some time.

A player may well forget that VR gaming is still in its infancy... Farpoint will certainly dull with time as the genre fully matures but it’s an important title.

A bit of refinement and more unique situations could have made this a real classic, but Farpoint still succeeds in bringing first person shooters into VR with some fast gameplay and smart use of controls.

Despite our hopes, Farpoint is boring first person shooter for PSVR, that lacks interesting combat situations and deep story.

Farpoint is a generic shooter with a cool aim-down-sights mechanic that's elevated by its great story and affecting cutscenes.

If you're going to play Farpoint, then be absolutely sure that you get the lightgun. It adds everything to the experience, making the game one of the most immersive and fundamentally enjoyable shooters that I've ever played.

Farpoint for the PSVR is probably what most people envisioned when this era of virtual video games was first announced. Simply put, this is the game that justifies a PSVR purchase. A system seller if you will.
