Fated: The Silent Oath (PSVR) Review – Highway to Hel

When PSVR launched back in October, Sony’s virtual reality headset had an impressive start. A large varied portfolio of titles with quality exclusives, and a simple set up made it a very tempting entry point into the wonderful world of VR gaming. Unfortunately, less than six months after the exceptional launch, games for Sony’s entry…

Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin (PSVR) Review

It’s hard to believe that Psychonauts, is almost 12. Double Fine’s endearing psychic-powered platformer has been in the limbic system of gamers ever since, not only because it has seen numerous ports and re-releases, (hitting the PS4 only a couple months ago), and also that, finally, thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign a full-blown sequel…

The Assembly (PSVR) Review – Worse for Wear

As another first-person puzzle game set in a mysterious lab complex, The Assembly doesn’t stand out all that much. The puzzles are ok, the narrative ticks along nicely and it doesn’t overstay it’s welcome. It’s just not particularly memorable. However, as a launch title for PSVR one needs to consider whether the game benefits from…

Tethered (PSVR) Review – String Theory

The launch line up for Sony’s PlayStation VR has been incredibly strong and diverse, with arguably a better line up of available games than many console launches. Among these initial titles is Secret Sorcery’s Tethered, a god game set in a fantasy world full of cute creatures for you to lord it over that’s best…

Weeping Doll (PSVR) Review – Poundland Power Ranger

I don’t think TianShe Media, the makers of PSVR horror game, Weeping Doll intended it to be a comedy, and I sure as hell wasn’t expecting it either. Creepy dolls are one of those things which are guaranteed to shit me right up, however the sheer awkwardness of the execution made me chuckle rather than…

Windlands (PSVR) Review – If You’re Gonna Spew…

The ability to amplify the emotional and physical connection that players have while playing a game is what makes virtual reality potentially so compelling and exciting. In Psytec Game’s first-person platformer Windlands, players chuck themselves into the void with a pair of as you grapple hooks, swinging around a ruined civilisation high up in the…

Pixel Gear (PSVR) Review – Block Party

Pixel Gear is another one of those PSVR games that came out of nowhere. An arcade shooter with Minecraft style graphics, that like Ace Banana feels more like proof of concept, than a fully fledged game. Although I did enjoy my time with Pixel Gear, it’s worth bearing in mind that there’s not a whole…

Ace Banana (PSVR) Review – Bananarama

As is often the case with launch titles, some are great, others may as well be tech demos. But with Sonys PSVR I think calling some of the titles experiments would be far more apt, they’re barely games, they have some value, but they’re not going to hold your attention for very long Oasis Games’…

Harmonix VR (PSVR) Review – Tune in, Drop Out

The first thing to note about Harmonix VR, is that it sin’t a game. If you;re expectinv some kind of VR based rhythum game, you’re going to be sorely disssapointed. (I’d reccomend checking out the latest re-release of REZ). Harmonix VR is basically a way to get people to sit back, relax and spend a…
