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.

Farpoint is a must-have game for any PSVR owner - so long as you're willing to drop the cash on the gun bundle. The story is good enough for what it sets out to do, but it's the meaty single-player offering and the online co-op that propels Farpoint to the higher reaches of the VR stratosphere.

Farpoint is the perfect crossover between arcade light gun shooters à la The House of the Dead and old-school First Person Shooters. The result is a jaw-dropping experience that truly becomes unparalleled thanks to the power of VR and to the quality of the Aim Controller peripheral: this might be the first full blown traditional game 100% built around VR, and despite a few shortcomings you literally won't believe your eyes. In its own ways, Farpoint truly takes the shooter genre to a whole new level: if this is not a killer application, we're pretty close to that.

Farpoint is the most ambicious proyect that PlayStation VR has right now. This game goes beyond the experience with the new Aim Controller and the possibilities in Farpoint are huge.

We loved Farpoint since we first played it at the E3 2016. After cleaning this uncharted planet from arachnids for 5 hours, we have never been disappointed. Classical? Yes. No point without Virtual Reality? Definitely. But we are here to judge the final product as it was designed, which means for Virtual Reality. Impulse Gear's small team released a highly immersive action game and a must-play on PlayStation VR. There is still efforts needed on situations and the length of the game to further develop the characters and the story. But for a first try, the basis is really strong. Moreover, you can extend the experience thanks to the cooperative mode, which is a total success despite a limited number of maps. As for the Aim Controller, it will be hard to play without it and we hope others FPS will follow this path. Farpoint, or the new VR reference.

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

Judged as a shooter, Farpoint is as generic as they get; thankfully, Impulse Gear's effort has other things going for it. ... If you've a PlayStation VR, this is definitely one for the library.

Awesome start for the new controller, but not without its faults. Using the Aim is wonderfully natural and it's great. I'm waiting for the next games for this piece of gear!

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.

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.
