Blasters of the Universe
Top Critic Average
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 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 of the Universe is frantic, funny and a fabulous workout. From the stylised neon landscapes, daft script and varied enemy design, to the absorbing customization system and engaging combat - Blasters of the Universe is easily one of the best VR shooters I have played and one that every PSVR owner should certainly consider adding to their collection.
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 is a worthy addition to any VR enthusiasts library and is a great title to show off just how well VR works.
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 is a satisfactory take on a popular VR genre, elevated by the breadth of its weapon options and its physically demanding bullet hell action.
From the beautiful colours that fly past you, to the wondrous creations of destruction you can craft, Blasters of the Universe is filled with things to love.
Blasters of the Universe has some good ideas but fails to execute them. Combine this with unfortunate glitches and an extremely short running time, and there's not much reason to blast in this universe.
