The Wizards delivers one of the most solid experience we enjoyed in VR. It is immersive, comfortable and makes perfect use of motion controls to make us feel like summoning spells and confronting huge creatures.

The Wizards uses the VR in a very satisfying way and it's a "magic" shooter that does not give up a bit of exploration, narration and GdR elements.

There are plenty of archery, wave-based, and shooter VR titles out there, but none that scratch the spellcasting itch. Thankfully, The Wizards fills that gap with style. What it may occasionally lack in finesse, it makes up for in style, voice work, and gameplay. The Wizards is a solid addition to any VR library.

With a great balance between playability, ominous ambiance, and well-designed VR elements like mobility and weaponry, The Wizards is an excellent model of the compelling and enjoyable things that can be done with VR. It is attractive and enticing without being too easy or too hard. Level designs are challenging but fair, although they may not feel that way at first exposure.
