Doom VFR is a brave shooter that proves that VR games don't have to be conservative with movement to work. Fast-paced action with a great stable of recognizable weapons and enemies makes it a challenging rush, once you find your VR legs. It's a shame VFR story didn't get the same self-aware treatment as Doom did, but even if it's all about warping and gunning, that's more than enough.

An inspired effort to try and make Doom work in VR, but the limited control options on PlayStation VR leave the action feeling clumsy and frustrating.

Doom VFR is a short experience that has a couple of high points but mostly struggles to work as both a VR shooter and a Doom entry

Doom's trademark demon slaying translates well to virtual reality, but Doom VFR feels more like a warning shot than a BFG blast.

DOOM VFR is probably the best VR game that PlayStation VR has to offer, so it is perfect for those who enjoyed the original game and also own a headset. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-ldb4'); });

As a VR experience designed from the ground up for the technology, Doom VFR is probably the best example of this to date. There are some improvements to be made with the movement, but it is otherwise a fantastic bit of the ol' ultra violence that shouldn't be missed. Bethesda have definitely shown they understand the potential of VR, so hopefully we'll see more dedicated VR experiences in the future.

VFR as promised, brings back the rush of the Doom reboot, with the immersion only possible in virtual reality. Controls work great, either with PS Move or Aim Controller, but it is not as long and deep as the original game.

An excellent version of an outstanding game that doesn't last as long as the original game, nor is as beautiful as it was... but it's VR and is incredibly fun an inmersive (and we love kiling monsters on VR).

Doom VFR is an experience to try absolutely (even better with the free movement), but as a game itself it was reasonable to expect something more.

If you have a room-scale VR system, try. Otherwise, avoid.

DOOM VFR is Bethesda's second major VR release, but it feels like one that is coming a year too late. Poor controls and odd design decisions detract from what would otherwise be an excellent VR shoote

A touch on the short side, and with more than a few gripes around the control mechanisms, DOOM VFR, like most Bethesda games, is made better through mods and community support. That said, even without it, there's a serviceable vertical slice of the best parts of last year's flatscreen title. I just wish the damned game would let me punch something!

I was really surprised at how much I enjoyed my time with Doom VFR. Skyrim VR had soured me a little and I wasn't really looking forward to playing. But this shows that rethinking how a game will work in VR, instead of just shoehorning a game into VR wholesale, can make the world of difference. It also helps that the game has a price tag to match.

Despite its scattershot approach to control and bite-sized scope, DOOM VFR provides a tantalizing, gore-soaked and adrenaline filled peek at the future of PSVR.

Doom VFR is a remarkable experience in almost every way. There are intense battles, terrifying enemies, and amazing settings to explore, all tied together with a combination of creepiness and wit. All of this is almost upended by one of the worst control schemes ever implemented on the (admittedly difficult) PlayStation Move controllers. Doom VFR is still well worth playing (in fact, it's a blast), just go into the experience with the understanding that no matter which controller you decide to use, you won't be 100% satisfied.

Bethesda's really tried to make DOOM work in virtual reality, but despite supporting all three of PlayStation VR's control options, it doesn't really feel like the title was designed with any of them in mind. That said, if you can ignore the flaws with whichever peripheral you choose, then the over-the-top action of id Software's series transfers well, and this is arguably one of the better looking virtual reality titles to date. It's a little on the short side, but the price point reflects that, and the gunplay is still as intense as it's ever been.

DOOM VFR delivers a fun VR experience that gives you a tiny taste of an excellent meal, a meal that's full of stunning visuals, demon stomping, and a satisfying blend of upgrades and the weapons we know and love from the DOOM universe. Unfortunately, a few bugs and some questionable design choices mar an otherwise fantastic VR game.

Looking like a DLC for the 2016's DOOM, VFR can easily be considered a pleasant experience as it's still a bloody nervous FPS. But none of the ways to control the main protagonist feels fully satisfying, which is too bad.
