Fallout 4 VR
Top Critic Average
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

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.
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.

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.
