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).

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

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.
