Fallout 4 VR is certainly a neat way of experiencing the universe and there are times where suddenly being attacked by something can be terrifying, yet I can't see myself playing it for long periods of time.

Much like all good VR experiences it really does echo that line from The Matrix "nobody can be told what The Matrix is… they have to experience it for themselves"… Fallout 4 VR is that. The pictures here don't do it any justice at all… even play through video's won't give the true sense of just how "there" you are.

It does have its issues, but Fallout 4 VR is one of my favorite VR titles so far. Make sure you have a very beefy computer to run it though.

Fallout 4 VR is a splendid example of what every fan of VR hopes the industry is working towards. This is a AAA title that offers hundreds of hours of immersive, atmospheric gameplay that manages to nail the feel and aesthetic of VR without feeling like a cheap imitation of the main game. There are still a few flaws, and we would love to see Bethesda roll out mods and DLC from the main game, but in the meantime, it's an experience that's worth it for fans of VR and Fallout alike.

_________________________ “Being physically able to stare down the sights of your gun or to just straight up swing your controller in order to pistol whip the enemies is definitely satisfying.

While unsurprisingly riddled with bugs at launch, and with other aspects just missing (DLC and scopes, as an example), the community steps in to make this incredible game one of the best titles on the VR platform. Delivering nearly 80 hours of gameplay, even without addons, it's easily the largest and most compelling reason to own a VR HMD.

Becoming a VR Game, Fallout 4 feels the same and new at the same time. A huge game with a lot of quests, a fantastic atmospherer and the feeling that we are in the future, walking in the Commonweath. Only a few mechanics don't feel vey natural but it doesn't prevent us to keep on playing.

As cool as VR Fallout sounds, Fallout 4 is simply more enjoyable on the flat screen.

No other VR games offer an experience of this depth or length and while you will have to make a number of adjustments before jumping in, I think it's worth it.

Fallout 4 VR lets you experience the post-nuclear future in a much more intimate way. Its adaptation to the Vive's hand-tracked Touch controls works fairly well for moving and shooting, but poorly for using the Pip Boy's clunky interface, and that's something you'll need to do frequently. But it's worth putting up with to come face to face with Fallout 4's characters, monsters, and settings.

Fallout 4 VR does not go beyond an average vote because of a VR implemented mostly in an approximate way, even if the overall effect remains considerable.

Another highly compromised VR remaster, that offers one of the best open world experiences so far and yet still manages to feel deeply flawed as it does so.

Let's just say I expect quite a few of you will have those "Oh damn, it's already 4 A.M.?" moments.
