Okay, so not really sure if anyone else here has been able to pick the PlaystationVR up, but if you are thinking of doing so, or have already. I'd love to hear your thoughts/opinions of what we have offered to us at the moment.
Basically I'll be putting my own thoughts, while leaving it open for others to share theirs in order to help anyone who might be interested.
Game 1: Resident Evil 7 DEMO.
Certainly a neat thing to test it out if you are wanting to see how it'd work for 'horror' games. Having played the demo several times before I got VR, I can safely say that it really does add to the experience. There is a part in the hall that leads to the basement where I had to stop and double check to make sure the wavy curtain was just that. Something that gave me unease, which I had never even noticed in non-VR.
Only one suggestion though: If you aim to beat the demo and get the dirty coin. Don't do it in VR. It's cool, but just makes the process of avoiding the monster way more difficult then needed. At least that's my experience.
Game 2: Miku Hatsune VR Live
Okay, so I've only got the demo, but honestly I think that's all you'll need. From what I can gather it's just her singing different songs, but always on the same stage. While you can actually stand ON the stage while this is happening, which is rather cool, it just doesn't feel like I'd want to spend 14.99 on a random selection of songs. (That you apparently can't choose the order of) With only one other area to go to when you get a private show.
Might get this for friends though. I hear there is a free VR mode/thing in Project Diva for the PS4 which I need to look into.
Game 3: Psyconaughts in the Rhombus of Ruin
Okay so I was a huge fan of the first game, so seeing there was a VR game, I decided to jump on it and got it for around 18 with my PS+ discount.
Was it worth it? Well... yes and no.
It has the same great humor the first game has, and it was great seeing the characters doing stuff again. However, like most VR things right now. It's short. Not "very" short, but short. I'd say you can get maybe around an hour to an hour and a half of playtime, assuming you have any difficulty figuring out the puzzles.
I also don't know if it was because I was tired at the time, but I swear the graphics seemed fuzzier then usual for it. It's still a very neat concept of gameplay and was fun to mess around in. I'm sure to play through it again at some point.
Game 4: Batman Arkham VR
Alright! Let's play this game- It's over.
That's honestly how this feels. For about 17 bucks used... I can barely say it's worth it. Honestly showing it off to your friends might be the only reason to keep it. There is a 'batarang' target game in the bat cave you can play, but all in all there isn't much content.
What you DO get however, is freaking amazing. The areas are so detailed and real looking. I honestly felt like I was IN Gotham. Like there is a time at the start where you can look into a window, and you just want to reach in and grab stuff from there.
One curious thing about this particular game is it basically forces you to play it standing up. I'm sure there is a way to trick the system and still sit down, but I didn't do that.
Given how short it is though, you'll barely care. Also, have and use the move controllers for this game. They're worth it.
Game 5: Star Wars Battlefront: Rouge One VR Mission
This will cost you about 15 bucks at the moment. 14 if you have a gamestop pro membership like I do.
The bad is that in order to play this. You have to install the game. Download the extra mission from the store, THEN download the latest game patch in order to access this ONE mission. This can take a couple of hours depending on things.
However, I feel it was SO worth the trouble. It's just so cool being in the cockpit of an X-Wing getting to fly around space and shoot Tie Fighters, as well as a part where you fly through an asteroid field. I really REALLY want a Star Wars VR game now. That one mission was NOT enough!
Game 6: The final game I got to buy and have played is the best of the bunch so far.
Until Dawn: Rush of Blood.
For twenty bucks, you are getting your money's worth. Seven stages of frightning awesomeness to play through.
If you do play this, you MUST have the move controllers. I can't stress that enough. It's truly the way it was meant to be played.
I've had fun going through the levels again and again, just for the thrill of it. (Though they will loose their luster eventually, but that's basically any game.)
Gotta say though, I don't think they've figured out how to VR 'fire' yet. The level where you see it burning around you at the end shows just how fake it looks.
This is also the perfect game to have your friends play. I suggest "Hotel Hell" for a great reaction.
That's all I have for now.
Come Thursday I'll likely be checking out Resident Evil 7 proper as I finally got the dirty coin item.
There are other ones I'm very interested in checking out, but money is an issue.
