It's unlikely to leave as much of an impact as Farpoint did, but Evasion offers a competent and entertaining shoot 'em up campaign for those looking to bring devastation to the next alien race. Alongside a horde mode that'll have you coming back for more, this is one experience that PlayStation VR fanatics won't want to miss.

Evasion is another example of a fast-paced VR game that doesn't seem like it could work in theory, but has been executed with a care and precision befitting of a developer that has a lot of expertise in the VR field. Bullet-hell in virtual reality? Archiact made it work well, despite what naysayers may say about what the medium can handle.

Evasion is a decent FPS for the PSVR, but it needed just a bit more variety to make it fun and engaging. The initial structure of the gameplay is spot-on, but the enemies and level design are just a bit too stale. Hopefully, Archiact continues to make VR titles because I think they're onto something.
