It doesn’t push the boat out – or rather, the raft – as much as it could, but Dick Wilde 2 delivers a mild improvement over its predecessor, favouring accessibility and fun over the original’s punishing challenge.
If you played the first game and wished the difficulty was a little more accessible or wished you could play it with a buddy you’ll find both of those things are now possible in Dick Wilde 2. If you’ve had your fill of these wave based/shooting gallery VR titles though I’m not sure there is anything here that will get you to jump in.
Dick Wilde 2 is a fun rail shooter with excellent controls and a beautiful art-style. Sadly unless you are desperate to play something on PSVR, or love rail shooters, Dick Wilde 2 is regretable skippable.
Dick Wilde 2 is a fun game and not much more than that. What it lacks the complexity of other VR shooters, it makes up for it with co-op, but it's very much one of those games where once you've played one level you've played them all. It doesn't reinvent the world of shooters, but is good at the small slice it chooses to take part in.
