It's been a few years since the PlayStation VR for the PS4 and PS4 Pro launched onto the virtual reality scene, bringing with it an excellent virtual reality headset experience for console gamers.
As of writing this article, it's still one of the best-selling virtual reality headsets on the market, which makes sense considering several of the others need high-end computers to get up-and-running such as the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive.
There are dozens of VR games already available for the PSVR, and it can be overwhelming at first to look at the PSN Store or gaming store shelves to see so many options. What type of virtual reality games do you want to play? Do you prefer a high-intensity shoot em ups, or some relaxing music rhythm games, what about exploring the open worlds in adventure games? Maybe you like scaring yourself silly and want a horror experience?
It's understandable if your unsure on what game to start playing, this is why I've compiled the definitive list of the best PlayStation VR games that you can start playing right now to alleviate those concerns, there is something for everyone on this list.
The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR
For a game that wasn’t initially intended for virtual reality at all, Skyrim VR is nothing short of extraordinary. It's mostly the Skyrim that you have come to know and love, but now you can enjoy it even more with the immersive presence of a PSVR headset. With an extensive variety of control schemes to choose from including the DualShock and PlayStation Move Controllers plus hundreds of hours of excellent content, this is a must play for any role-playing game fans out there. There is something uniquely immersive about the feeling you get when walking down the paved roads of Whiterun in VR for the first time, seeing all of the NPC's and buildings in true to size. From starting staring down the throat of a fire-breathing dragon or even looking out upon Tamriel skyline from the top of the Throat of the World. It doesn't matter if you’re a Skyrim-veteran or one of the rare lucky few gamers that have never played the game and get to see this world for the first time, Skyrim VR is both utterly captivating and immersive and should be on your PSVR list.
"A true, full-length open-world game for VR has arrived from award-winning developers, Bethesda Game Studios. Skyrim VR reimagines the complete epic fantasy masterpiece with an unparalleled sense of scale, depth, and immersion. From battling ancient dragons to exploring rugged mountains and more, Skyrim VR brings to life a completely open world for you to experience any way you choose. Skyrim VR includes the critically-acclaimed core game and official add-ons – Dawnguard, Hearthfire, and Dragonborn. Dragons, long lost to the passages of the Elder Scrolls, have returned to Tamriel and the future of the Empire hangs in the balance. As Dragonborn, the prophesied hero born with the power of The Voice, you are the only one who can stand amongst them."
Borderlands 2 VR
This wouldn't be complete without this entry, especially considering that the much anticipated Borderlands 3 will finally be released this year. Fans of the series already know what Borderlands entails, somewhere between Diablo's loot hunting and bat shit crazy first-person shooter. Borderlands 2 in VR takes the crazy, fast-paced action of the original games to a whole other level by placing you right into the center of its colorfully violent world. You'll collect almost an infinite amount of unique weapons, fight swarms of bizarrely foreign foes and explore a land as deranged as its shooting action is diverse. What could have been a quite a nauseating puke-fest in virtual reality has been adapted to the PSVR exceptionally well, so don't get yourself too worried about getting motion sickness, chances are you should be fine. Regardless if you're playing with a DualShock controller or PlayStation Move Wands, this game offers plentiful options to make the game suit your needs, from full locomotion through to teleportation and peripheral vision hazing. A lengthy adventure full or insane antics that's well worth a look awaits you.
"Immerse yourself in the untamed, outlaw world of Borderlands like never before with the power of PlayStation VR. Step into the boots of a notorious 'Vault Hunter' and arm yourself with hundreds of over-the-top weapons as you embark on a noble quest to line your pockets with loot. Blast away bandits with true-to-life, 1-to-1 aiming using PlayStation Move, beat-down psychos in the desert, or race across Pandora's wastes in stolen vehicles in a bid to free the planet from Handsome Jack’s wicked clutches! The whole single-player campaign is completely playable on PlayStation VR."
Beat Saber VR
Seriously what else can be said regarding this game that hasn’t been said before? It’s incredible, immersing you into a rhythm-driven experience that moves your entire body. If you for some reason you haven't heard about this game, it goes something like this: you’ve got a red and blue lightsaber (Star Wars anybody?), one in each hand, and you’re tasked with slicing futuristic chunks of digital junk that come cascading towards you to the rhythm of the music that's playing in the background. Beat Saber is undoubtedly one of the most addictive PSVR games to date, and it’s easy to pick up and play right away regardless of your VR experience level.
Today, thanks to these innovators, users can now enjoy quality VR experiences such as TheaterMax – a widescreen cinematic experience powered by Lenovo’s VR technology. It lets users attach either the Lenovo VIBE X3 or VIBE K4 Note smartphone to the front of a VR Headset to view movies, play games and experience way more than they’ve bargained for, all on a supersized virtual screen.
"Beat Saber is a unique, fast-paced VR experience combining breathtaking neon visuals, specially-crafted electronic music, and finely-tuned action gameplay. With one saber in each hand (you'll need a pair of PlayStation Move controllers) slash the beats as they fly towards you, matching the direction and color marked on them to rack up points and keep the music moving. As the tempo increases, you'll have to move your whole body to avoid incoming obstacles, side-stepping and ducking, all while keeping to the rhythm and slashing the beats. Easy to pick up and fun to master, Beat Saber is an experience like nothing else."
Tetris Effect VR
Putting the Tetris Effect experience into words is difficult. It's both psychedelic and hypnotic yet extremely addictive, Its basically Tetris on LSD. It's a regular game of Tetris, except that the environments you're playing in morph and change. Each level has its distinct characteristic with music and visuals tailored perfectly to its theme. For example, there is an underwater level that you can play, and you will hear calming underwater noises while shimmering whales float around your head. For some of you, that’ll be enough to spend your hard earned cash without a second thought, for those of you swaying on the fence, make the jump because this is a really, great way to celebrate one of the all-time classic games of our generation. It's an experience and one that everyone should have the opportunity to play.
"Tetris® Effect is Tetris like you've never seen it, or heard it, or felt it before—an incredibly addictive, unique, and breathtakingly gorgeous reinvention of one of the most popular puzzle games of all time, from the people who brought you the award-winning Rez Infinite and legendary puzzle game Lumines. Fully playable on either a standard display (up to 4K and 60fps on a PS4™Pro), or optionally in mind-blowing 3D on PS VR. Music, backgrounds, sounds, special effects—everything, down to the Tetris pieces themselves, pulse, dance, shimmer, and explode in perfect sync with how you're playing, making any of the game's 30+ stages and 10+ modes something you'll want to experience over and over again. A challenge for the mind and a feast for all the senses, TETRIS EFFECT is the perfect excuse to play Tetris again... and again...and again, and again, and again and again and again and again and again and again and..."
Superhot VR makes you feel like an absolute badass. It perfects the act of making you feel like some unstoppable action hero. It’s always a joy when a game developer takes a tried-and-true gaming genre and introduces an entirely new unique gameplay mechanic. That was the case when Superhot was released, as this first-person shooter was slowed right down. In Superhot, time only starts to move when you do, which gives the game an incredible systematic approach, as one bullet will instantly kill you which means you have to wipe out all enemies before they get to you which can make for some fantastic Matrix-esque moments. You’re placed right into the middle of genuinely dubious situations, such as standing empty-handed before three enemies with machine guns who have you dead-to-rights, with only time on your side. It’s as much of a puzzler as it is a shooter; how do you take down four men with guns when all you have is a throwing star? It can take a lot of trial and error before you start to figure out each level but It’s unbelievably satisfying, and the PSVR port is a solid effort despite some visual compromises.
"Blurring the lines between cautious strategy and unbridled mayhem, SUPERHOT VR is the definitive VR FPS in which time moves only when you move. No regenerating health bars. No conveniently placed ammo drops. It's just you, outnumbered and outgunned, grabbing the weapons of fallen enemies to shoot, slice, and maneuver through a hurricane of slow-motion bullets. The decisive winner of dozens of VR Game of the Year awards, SUPERHOT VR is a title reimagined and redesigned from the ground up for VR and hand tracking controllers. The fruit of over three years of focused trailblazing, SUPERHOT VR brings the visceral action of SUPERHOT directly into your head and soul. And now also - directly into your PSVR.
Resident Evil 7: Biohazard VR
This was the game that every PSVR fan had been waiting on ever since it was announced way back at E3 2016. Capcom has done an excellent job and reinvented its iconic survival horror franchise with Resident Evil 7, shifting to a first-person perspective and focusing more on an unfiltered, raw horror-survival experience to significant effect. Taking place after the events of Resident Evil 6, you play as the main protagonist Ethan, a man looking for his missing wife, who has disappeared into a mysterious, sinister mansion. The most impressive achievement is the fact that it delivers a 12+ hour long campaign that’s fully playable in VR with several comfort options to choose from. The atmosphere is hauntingly unforgettable, the story is memorable, and the gameplay is gratifying. Influenced by the likes of Paranormal Activity, The Blair Witch Project and almost certainly P.T, Resident Evil 7 is an extraordinary game in the popular series. You'll need a lot of courage and determination to make it through the game as Resident Evil 7 is one genuinely frightening game, especially in virtual reality. However, if you're able to stomach the jump scares, you'll be rewarded with one of the most well-made horror games of this generation.
Arizona Sunshine VR
Resident Evil 7 isn’t the only awesome VR zombie game out there, as Arizona Sunshine has proved by mixing humor with a lot of zombies. The game places players into the arid Southwest of the United States, an area which has been overrun with zombies. You can freely explore a range of environments, from parched deserts and treacherous canyons to the scuttling darkness of abandoned mineshafts, and hunt down weapons, scavenge ammo and do what it takes to stay alive. It’s lonely out there, but don't give up too quickly as there is hope on the horizon with other humans that haven’t been infected...yet. Arizona sunshine offers a wide variety of zombies, some tougher than others, and a host of weapons to help put them down. The campaign can be played in co-op, and there’s also a multiplayer Horde mode. An essential PSVR game for fans of the undead.
"Step into the sun-baked wastes of the Arizona desert and fight for survival as the zombie hordes finally claw their way into virtual reality. Freely explore a range of environments, from parched deserts and treacherous canyons to the scuttling darkness of abandoned mineshafts, and hunt down weapons, scavenge ammo and do what it takes to stay alive. Built from the ground up for VR with full support for Dualshock 4, PlayStation Move and PlayStation VR Aim Controller, take a wide variety of weapons directly in hand and aim, shoot and reload just as you would in real life. When the bullets run dry, call on the help of up to three friends in online co-op mode and tackle the ravenous hordes as a team, tackling the full length campaign with careful coordination, nuanced strategy and quadruple the fire power!"
Astro Bot: Rescue Mission VR
This is arguably one of the PSVR’s most significant must-have virtual reality game experience and a phenomenally excellent platform game. You get the full experience and thrill of seeing a virtual world come to life with engaging gameplay. It’s a delightful reminder of just how extraordinary VR can be when there’s nothing in your way, and it’s an utterly essential experience for any PSVR owner. Full of the kind of inventiveness you've only come to expect from Nintendo's exclusive game series, Astro Bot: Rescue Mission uses the VR format with such untamed imagination, weaving levels all around the player, and using the scale to both charm and enchant your expectations, it's unlike anything you'll have ever played before. Without a doubt, this is a must-play for anyone with a PlayStation VR headset, and if you combine all of the games on this list, it’s hard to come up with a reason not to get a PSVR.
"Captain ASTRO needs your help for a daring mission! Grab your PS VR headset to blast off on an epic adventure to rescue his spaceship’s lost crew-bots. Explore vibrant and immersive worlds PACKED with enemies to fight, secrets to discover, bots to save… and huge bosses to face. Look and lean in any direction to spot danger, judge ASTRO’s every death-defying jump with full 360º vision, and listen out for the crew’s SOS calls in immersive 3D audio. Watch out though… your enemies will be coming for YOU, too. Help ASTRO run, jump and fight across rooftops, beaches and in the belly of a whale. Use your whole body to interact with your surroundings and discover secret paths with a full range of vision. Turn your controller into a magical multi-tool gadget, from a hookshot to water cannon, ninja stars and loads more. Find hidden space chameleons to unlock extra challenges."
I Expect You to Die VR
Think escape rooms meets virtual reality. I Expect You to Die will make you feel like a Sean Connery-esque Cold War Era spy straight out of the movies. In this game, you take on the role of a special agent tasked with getting yourself out of exceedingly tricky situations, all without moving from your seat. It makes excellent use of VR, especially using the PlayStation Wands, as you can pick up and play with objects all over your environment. There are several levels, and each sets you in a unique context that plays out very similar to an escape room in real life. You’re challenged with a range of puzzles, and your actions will determine whether you live or die. The puzzles are great, and many can be solved in various ways, giving the game plenty of replayability. This is also a fun one to watch your friends try, as you’ll enjoy the shock on their faces when they find traps, such as a cabinet full of hand grenades.
Google Is Going In VR. Google has fully embraced the virtual reality experience and it is dedicating a lot of resources to it. In fact, Google Cardboard was once considered to be a side project for the company before it became a hit. Some people say that Google Maps' street view, which launched in 2007, was an early example of virtual reality. In recent years, Google hired a lot of people specifically for virtual reality and they are researching all aspects of it.
"I Expect You To Die is a virtual reality puzzle game that places you in the well-polished shoes of an elite secret agent. You must attempt to survive deadly situations in immersive and dangerous locales. Complete each operation using problem-solving skills and wits… oh, and the power of telekinesis that all our agents are equipped with. Use it and whatever resources you can find to escape each situation... or die trying."
Sprint Vector VR
Sprint Vector is a virtual reality experience that requires fast reflexes and equally swift movement on behalf of the player. It's like Mario Kart meets Jet Set Radio, as players are thrown into a cartoonish world where they have to race against other players on sci-fi roller blades in a galactic sporting event. The key to the movement is players swinging their real-world arms back and forth in a running motion. No motion in the real world means no action in the game. And, to get going fast, you need to get your arms moving. It’s a lot of fun, as a goofy announcer keeps everything cheerful voice even as other racers try sabotaging you with a convenient arsenal of weapons. Be aware, those prone to motion sickness might have a little trouble with this one.
"Become a rising star in the galaxy’s most popular game show as you go head-to-head in a highly-competitive, full-body VR experience. Built on innovative Fluid Locomotion™ technology, Sprint Vector merges the physical thrill of athletic competition with the unhinged energy of a futuristic game show. Run, jump, drift, climb, shoot, dodge, and fly your way to victory as you face down brutal competition in a series of mind-bending cross-dimensional race courses."
Gran Turismo Sport VR
Still considered one of the best racing simulators to date, this is the franchise's first foray on the PS4 and virtual reality. You'll get the chance to take a seat in the cockpit of a vast selection of beautifully crafted vehicles, each modeled precisely as they appear in real life, before taking them out onto the circuit for head-to-head races. The VR mode has still been meticulously crafted, with a discreet in-game HUD, useful mirrors and some fine-stitched racing gloves, especially for your digital hands. It makes an already drool-worthy gaming racer extra tempting and is a must-have for PSVR owners and racing enthusiasts.
"Welcome to the future of motorsports – the definitive motor racing experience is back and better than ever only on PlayStation 4. Gran Turismo Sport is the world’s first racing experience to be built from the ground up to bring global, online competitions sanctioned by the highest governing body of international motorsports, the FIA (Federation International Automobile). Create your legacy as you represent and compete for your home country or favorite manufacturer through multiple race class, including GT3, Prototype, Rally, and more."
Like Sci-fi? Love shooters? Loved Starship Troopers? Then PlayStation VR's Farpoint is definitely for you. This game sees you shooting your way through some interesting alien environments and with PlayStation new gun controller it will let you realistically aim at your extra-terrestrial adversaries. You can dodge and duck behind cover to avoid incoming fire, and while the game follows a linear path, you're free to explore the levels at your leisure. It will take the better part of six hours to complete single-player story mode, however multiplayer mode gives this game some extra replayability, as does the pinpoint-accuracy of its visceral gunplay.
"Set off on a perilous journey into a hostile alien environment in Farpoint, exclusive to PS VR. Having found yourself stranded on an uncharted extra-terrestrial world with only standard issue equipment to keep you alive, you’ll need to set off in search of a crashed space station – The Pilgrim – and its survivors to find a way back home. Master an arsenal of primary and secondary weapons as you freely explore your surroundings, uncovering secrets of the strange Anomaly which marooned you. Farpoint is built from the ground-up for PlayStation VR and using the PlayStation VR Aim you’ll be able to directly interact with the digital world."
Keep Talking, and Nobody Explodes
This would have to be one of the most intense Co-Op virtual reality games on the PlayStation 4. While one player puts on the PSVR headset to look at a very detailed bomb in some random empty room, the other player uses the TV screen to read a direction manual on which wires to cut and what buttons you need to push in a particular sequence to make sure that you get to the next level in one piece. Underneath its seemingly dull exterior lies a tremendously fun exercise in teamwork, communication and sometimes just dumb luck as you make last-minute decisions to stop a bomb from going off. As with most games levels start off easy, usually with two or three puzzles to solve and a few minutes to solve them but of course they tend to escalate very quickly in regards to the difficulty. Part of the game’s charm is that whenever you start feeling good about your skills as either the decoder or disarmer, something else comes up that will put you back in your place. In that way, it’s fun trying to stay calm under pressure, something that you could take away from the game use it in real life situations.
"Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is a local cooperative game where one player is trapped in a room with a ticking time bomb they must defuse. The other players are the “Experts” who must give instructions to defuse the bomb by deciphering information found in the Bomb Defusal Manual. But there’s a catch: the Experts can’t see the bomb, so everyone will need to talk it out – fast!"
Until Dawn: Rush of Blood VR
One of my favorite features of PlayStation VR is just how many different genres of games it has. Described as being a “descent into madness” by Supermassive Games, Rush of Blood takes you on a real carnival-inspired rollercoaster ride filled with thrills, terrors, and arcade-style shooter action and complemented by many of the terrifying creatures you would have found in Until Dawn. Survival horror is a brilliant genre for virtual reality, most of the time you’re left squirming in your seat on an inescapable ghost train with nothing but a puny firearm with which to defend yourself. While the controls are relatively limited, basically shoot anything, and everything that moves, the real fun to be had in Rush of Blood comes from screaming in fear from one jump scare to the next with a death grip on both the controller and your bladder.
"From the warped minds of the team behind PS4™ horror classic Until Dawn, comes Until Dawn: Rush of Blood – a virtual reality experience to strike fear into the hearts of every trigger-happy arcade shooter fan. Arm yourself to the teeth then blast your way through a horde of enemies and monsters coming at you from all angles. Duck and dodge everything that’s thrown at you in this fright-filled rollercoaster ride from hell – exclusive to PlayStation®VR. Can you survive seven levels of pure terror to top the global leaderboards? With multiple paths to take and nightmarish themes to scare the living daylights out of you, no two rides will ever be the same – and neither will you..."
STAR TREK: Bridge Crew VR
Star Trek has an incredibly loyal and dedicated fanbase, and with Star Trek: Bridge Crew, you can finally live out your dream and jump into the chair of a Federation ship and help explore parts unknown. Star Trek: Bridge Crew is a fine example of the crazy fun you can have in co-operative VR. With the Vulcan population in search of a new home planet, it’s up to you and the crew of the U.S.S. Aegis to travel to The Trench in hopes of finding a replacement. While it's not the most exciting game played solo, teaming up with three headset-wearing friends can lead to some excellent moments. Communication is key to this game. One cool little detail is the game supports real-time lip sync to make it appear that the characters are speaking to each other, If you’re looking for a virtual reality co-op game on the market, this is it.
The Stuntmaster and the Cybermaxx. The 1990s were huge for the development of VR, even though the devices didn’t truly capture the market the way they did now. However, they were nonetheless extremely immersive for the time. Two of the most notable head mounted displays are definitely the Cybermaxx by Victormaxx and the Stuntmaster. They basically had an LCD screen embedded in a visor, that had a head tracking system, colorful stereoscopic 3D with a price tag that was a bit below $1000. Both devices also had huge support from games on both console and PC, but they didn’t achieve the huge success the industry needed.
"Star Trek™: Bridge Crew will immerse you in the Star Trek universe (VR compatible). The game puts you and your friends in the heart of the U.S.S. Aegis.
Your mission: explore a largely uncharted sector of space known as The Trench, in hopes of locating a suitable new home world for the decimated Vulcan populace. The Klingon Empire is also active in the region, and their purpose is a threat to the Federation’s plans. Make strategic decisions and coordinate actions with your crew to complete the mission. In co-op, you can form a crew of four players to serve in the roles of Captain, Helm, Tactical and Engineer. In addition to a dynamic storyline, the game features an “Ongoing Missions” mode, procedurally generating missions for countless hours of Solo and Co-op adventure. In Star Trek™: Bridge Crew, communication, trust, and close crew coordination are the keys to victory."
The Exorcist: Legion VR
If you're a fan of the horror genre you've probably seen a fair few movies based around exorcisms, here is your chance to step into the shoes of an exorcist and live out your most terrifying nightmare in VR. The Exorcist: Legion is an episodic game based on the top-rated movie of the same name. The Exorcist: Legion places you in the shoes of a middle-aged Boston homicide detective who investigates the disturbing murder of a priest. Each new episode tells a new part of the terrifying story, expanding its scope throughout, introducing you to new and scary horrors each step of the way. This is probably one of the most frightening experience available on the PSVR at the moment. Filled with plenty of jump scares and nerve-wracking creepiness, you may have to take a few intermissions before finishing each episode. The Exorcist: Legion is one of the more excellent video games based off of a movie franchise in recent years. Horror fans should pick this one up pronto.
"Created especially for virtual reality, The Exorcist: Legion VR is an episodic experience set in the Academy Award-winning world created by horror maestro William Peter Blatty. Each chapter features a unique demonic entity that will test your courage and resolve. Not for the faint-hearted."
Blood and Truth VR
After it's initial demo launch for the PlayStation VR launch with VR Worlds and its unique cockney-shooting gallery mode. Sony London Studio is following it up with a full-length dive into London's seedy underworld. In Blood and Truth, you'll play as a former special forces operative exploring the murky world of London's criminal elite on a mission to save his family. Taking its cues from big-budget action movies, it wants to make you feel like the hero of your film. Going off the most recent demo and trailer Blood and Truth looks to nail its VR gunplay once again. This looks as good as any game that's yet hit the PlayStation VR headset, Sony London Studio provides an intuitive world where partaking action movie tropes are rewarded just as you'd expect them to be. If you've got a PSVR headset, This should be top of your wishlist.
"Put on your PlayStation VR headset and become elite Special Forces soldier Ryan Marks in a hard-hitting shooter with all the explosive action and drama of a Hollywood blockbuster – inspired by PlayStation VR Worlds’ massively popular ‘The London Heist’ experience. Full of epic gun play and explosive set pieces, this exhilarating adventure fires you into a desperate mission to save Marks’ loved ones from a cold-blooded criminal overlord. Use your special training to scale buildings, infiltrate secret facilities and wreak havoc using a variety of powerful firearms against countless armed thugs."
This high-octane rhythm game has you controlling a small, metallic beetle as it roars through a series of fast, relentless tracks. It pushes you by sending wave after wave of obstacles your way that requires button combinations set to a specific beat think guitar hero. Every movement is done in sync with the soundtrack music, which has you switching directions in a fashion that feels both dynamic and unpredictable. If the flashing light show isn’t enough, the game’s aesthetics and boss battles are like a musically inspired hellscape set out of Dante’s Inferno. Similar to some of the other titles on this list, Thumper is playable with or without PlayStation VR. However, it’s undoubtedly more heart-pounding when you’re thrust directly into the action.
"Thumper is rhythm violence: classic rhythm-action, blistering speed, and brutal physicality. You are a space beetle. Brave the hellish void and confront a maniacal giant head from the future. Scream down the endless track and crash through punishing obstacles with simple, airtight controls. Hurtle forward, master new moves, reach overwhelming velocities, and survive adrenalizing boss battles. Every crushing impact is interwoven with a pounding original soundtrack. To reach synesthetic bliss, you must go through rhythm hell."
Batman: Arkham VR
Let's be honest; you’ve always wanted to be the Batman, who hasnt. Batman: Arkham VR allows you to do exactly that. Batman: Arkham VR is probably the best introduction to PlayStation VR as a platform. While there isn’t a lot of gameplay in the traditional sense, it’s a fantastic visual showcase that demonstrates the power of the platform and provides an exceptional level of superhero immersion that naturally can’t be found elsewhere. Taking place in the same universe created by the famed Arkham series, Arkham VR has you solving puzzles, fighting bad guys and reliving the origin story of our troubled hero. For the first time, you can see Bruce Wayne’s parents get murdered right before your very eyes. The opening sequence of the game draws you in by leading you from the top floor of Wayne Manor down to the basement where you get to suit up as the Batman for the first time giving you an incredible level of immersion as you try to solve crimes throughout Gotham and come face-to-horrifying-face with Batman’s greatest adversaries. Arkham VR is a must-buy for any Batman fan looking to delve into virtual reality. Rocksteady has once again proven itself as the perfect creator of Batman games, and extending its brilliance into VR with such aplomb should be applauded.
"Your quest to clean up Gotham has only just begun – and now it’s even more terrifying than it’s ever been. Exclusive to PlayStation VR, Batman: Arkham VR lets you become the Dark Knight in a virtual reality recreation of the DC’s hero’s more iconic locations. Become the world’s greatest detective and explore places such as Wayne Manor and the Batcave as you battle in a brand new and personal story set in Rocksteady’s classic Arkham universe."
Tetsuya Mizuguchi’s cult classic shooter makes a comeback, and it’s trippy as hell. It’s always been one of those game that lets you “get in the zone,” but with VR head tracking, Rez Infinite becomes addictively hypnotic. To experience the thrill of flying through cyberspace, tagging and shooting vector-based enemies with the turn of your head, forces you to keep your head on a swivel and your eyes continually exploring. With a pulsing trance soundtrack that builds to a thumping crescendo as you shoot down polygonal enemies, you find yourself fully immersed in the futuristic world as it zips past your floating avatar. With an insane sense of speed and spot-on head-tracking enemy targeting, it’s easy to lose track of reality while playing Rez Infinite completely, and it’ll be hard to stop yourself dancing along to the grooves your shots produce. Just like a good album, it’s something you’ll want to dive into again and again.
"15 years after the original Rez won hearts and blew minds on the PS2, its unique blend of shooting-rhythm-action returns as Rez Infinite -- infinitely improved and evolved for a new generation of hardware, and a new generation of gamers. Blast through Rez Infinite on your PS4 to appreciate its razor-sharp 1080p resolution, silky-smooth 60 frames-per-second motion, and full 7.1 surround-sound support (for what’s been called one of the greatest gaming soundtracks ever made), or plug in your PlayStation VR headset and experience 360 degrees of mind-blowing synesthesia (at 120 frames-per-second!), as colors and sounds sync and blend around you, all in time to Rez’s legendary techno-flavored beats in full 3D audio."
