While there’s an inherent fumbliness to Blood & Truth – I’m not ashamed to admit I’ve dropped a grenade under my own ass, my friend – it’s a game that wants you to feel and look cool. When you’re in the zone, it’s the closest to playable John Wick as we’re likely going to get – that is if John Wick liked flipping people off and collecting vape bottles.

If you have a PSVR headset then there is nothing else for it, you need to buy this game now. The gunfights are amazing and they are interspersed between great set pieces and interactive scenes for you to enjoy. Seriously, I did not expect to enjoy the stuff between the gunfights as much as I did. Its all designed and implemented so well, even unscrewing and hacking alarm panels is fun. The developers have added lots of stuff to do and collect, there are a lot of weapons to use and you can even give people ‘the bird’, seriously, what’s not to like?

Blood & Truth is a game that is leading the charge in smart, player centric, accessible and enjoyable VR games design. From the comfort of my couch, I’ve been made to feel like a highly skilled soldier for 5 whole hours (and more, thanks to the time trials now available), pulling off impossible feats while requiring just the right amount of effort to keep me immersed without making me feel like a passenger.

Blood & Truth is the most fun I've had in years. Its revolutionary shooting mechanics turn you into a virtual action hero in every sense of the word as you go through a gritty, dark and violent London underground in search for answers and revenge, all in VR. The amazingly designed setpieces make sure that you're never bored through the game's 8 hour tight and compact story. The only sadness I felt while playing this game was when the credits rolled. This is the game that shows us that PSVR is to be taken seriously.

In my opinion, there are only a handful of games that can be categorised as a system seller for Sony’s headset; something that would make it worthwhile laying down the cost of VR. Games like Beat Saber and Astro Bot have proven themselves at making VR work in its own right, and now you can add Blood & Truth to that list. And if you already own a PSVR you would be doing yourself a disservice by not going out and picking this game up.

If you liked „London Heist“, a part of the „VR-Worlds“-collection, you will love „Blood and Truth“. You feel like being part of a classic action-movie with all typical cliches. The shooting-parts are as convincing as the graphical presentation and the impressive soundtrack. The game would be even better, if you would be able to move around more freely, but all in all, it's definitely one of the best PSVR-games so far.

Blood & Truth isn't doing anything completely revolutionary for VR, particularly because we saw many of its own bullet points back at the PlayStation VR's launch. However, it packs these ideas into a cinematic package whose presentation can hardly be rivaled. If you want to step into the shoes of an action hero a la James Bond or Jason Bourne, Blood & Truth lets players live those experiences. From high-octane explosive thrills to intimate emotional moments of character connection, it exemplifies everything that an interactive VR action movie should be.

There were multiple times I forgot it was just a game, and where I actually cared for Ryan's family as though they were my own. The soundtrack was one of the better ones as of late, and gives me a reason to push grime on my friends and family by making them play the game. If you have a PSVR, this game is a must play.

Blood & Truth works even as its internal truth is a grinning mystery.

It seems to me that Blood & Truth, in some aspects, has backed away from the London Heist. Certainly I can't get rid of the impression that it's still a tech demo and not a full-fledged title. Because of all the shortcomings and the feeling that the title is pretty unfinished overall, we can't rank Blood & Truth for more. But if you can get over that, you will have a blast.
