The concept is engaging and the game is fun occasionally, but input on the VR end is lacking.

Highly recommended for folks that enjoy cooperative play, or as a way to introduce a friend to basic stealth gaming mechanics. Covert delivers a lot of gameplay for two players—one on PS VR and the other on the companion mobile app. The heists remain fun and engaging without ever becoming too difficult, ensuring that everyone has a good time. Can't ask for much more than that.

A lot of co-op games these days are not 'truly' co-op but two solo players playing together, this is not one of those games. Even though it is short and not very difficult, Covert truly excels at being a co-op adventure like no other on the medium. It is a game where both players depend on each other heavily and things cannot be accomplished alone. It will only last you a few hours but they will be entertaining. I can see a lot of VR fans loving the game and what it achieves, we certainly did.

Covert is a fun coop game that introduces us to the role of a thief and his assistant hacker. In addition, it is great to play with people not especially introduced to video games, which adds an extra point when playing with your partner or children. Its biggest hit, its duration, in two sittings is over.
