Blasters of the Universe
An unassuming VR shooter that excels by executing a familiar premise with sure panache, the game boasts some of PSVR’s sharpest tracking, married to an entertainingly self-aware 80s aesthetic.
Blasters of the Universe is a great PSVR shooter for the more active users out there. The controls are among the best in terms of responsiveness and retaining full control over within VR, plus the shooting feels fun and not like a chore. The 80's art style, story and music all work really well and brings up a faux nostalgia for the era the game is set in and also fits perfectly with the neon-coloured bullet hell the game provides.
Blasters of the Universe brings something new to the PSVR with its VR bullet hell concept, and the game works well. The guns have plenty of customization options, enabling you to adapt your weapon to your personal style. Grand Master Alwyn and his forces are challenging in casual and hell difficulties, and the extra modes give a shorter game a little replayability. If you are looking for something a little different and have some extra room to move, give Blasters of the Universe a try.
Blasters of the Universe meets my expectations in terms of a definitive VR experience, successfully reminded me of the days when I wish I could compete on Nick Arcade.
Blasters is a satisfactory take on a popular VR genre, elevated by the breadth of its weapon options and its physically demanding bullet hell action.
When you add the neon lights, the 90’s throwback, endless modes, daily challenges, and leaderboards, there is just something that is too sweet and something to look forward to when you play Blasters of the Universe.
Blasters of the Universe is a worthy addition to any VR enthusiasts library and is a great title to show off just how well VR works.
