An exquisitely thought-out tactical shooter that's instantly a PSVR great.

Firewall: Zero Hour is essential for PlayStation VR owners. Despite this being First Contact's debut game, it flawlessly executes on what the studio set out to do: to create PSVR's first must-have multiplayer shooter. It may even sway some of those yet to purchase one of Sony's high-tech headsets.

Firewall Zero Hour is the small equivalent of Rainbow Six Siege played in virtual reality. A big difference, especially with an Aim Controller in your hands.

I thoroughly enjoyed the VR elements including it's stellar gameplay. Matches are intense, and the focus on team play does the game justice.

Firewall: Zero Hour borrows from some of the greatest shooters around and tacks on some great VR support. However, the sum is not quite equal to its parts and the feeling one gets from playing the final game is that it's somewhat incomplete and not worth investing much time in.

Firewall Zero Hour is precisely the game Sony needs for their Virtual Reality platform -- addictive, fast paced, and immersive. Unfortunately, it's also in dire need of some tweaks to realize its potential. The grind is too deep, and the need for a “ready-up” system causes a lot of dead time between an otherwise richly rewarding tactical shooter. Patch this, and a few other minor hiccups, and Firewall Zero Hour will be the VR Rainbow Six it needs to be.

First Contact Entertainment has shown they know how to make a team-based shooter work in virtual reality, Now, they need to show that Firewall Zero Hour is more than just a proof of concept by adding in more content before the player base dries up.

Firewall: Zero Hour is an incredibly immersive experience that will appeal to military shooter fans, as well as fans of very well-made VR experiences. It is hard to express how deep and involving this game can be, it simply has to be played to be believed. Though I have a few minor quibbles with the progression and the flow of matches, I still whole-heartedly recommend this amazing multiplayer experience. Firewall is a system seller, and playing it one realizes that yes, VR might just be here to stay.

The excellent use of PlayStation Aim controller gives Firewall: Zero Hour the necessary realism and increases the level of immersion, but it is clearly not enough: this project lacks game modes, has problems with finding players online, and features strange character models.
