Is there anyone in the world that doesn’t want to be Batman? Gotham’s chief justice dealer is both relatable and badass, characteristics which have helped the hero appeal to generation after generation of comic book fans. And in Rocksteady’s ridiculously effective power fantasy, you get to live out a couple of hours beneath the Caped Crusader’s cowl. Mixing detective work with unique story-telling, this clever experience exposes both the good and the bad sides of being Bruce Wayne.
Proof that you can make a AAA blockbuster work with PSVR, this is effectively Uncharted in virtual reality – albeit with a Cockney backdrop. Blood & Truth channels The Getaway, and it stands out with great voice acting and some stunning set-pieces. But it’s the ridiculously tactile rails shooter-esque gameplay that puts it in a league of its own, and while the ageing PS Move controllers do struggle to match its ambition, few feelings are more satisfying than popping off headshots with one trigger finger while spinning a sawn-off shotgun on the other.

WipEout Omega Collection really shouldn’t work, but PSVR takes an already outstanding racer to a higher plane. With some impressive comfort options and an outrageous sense of speed, Sony’s futuristic form of F1 not only looks the part in virtual reality – but it’s arguably more exciting to play as well. The fact that this feature was patched in for free by a team of two is frankly flabbergasting.
The best thing you can say about Rez Infinite is that it feels like the PSVR version has been 15 years in the making. Originally released on the Dreamcast in 2001 and ported to various other platforms in the interim, Tetsuya Mizuguchi’s rails-shooter has been waiting for virtual reality to reach its full potential. Existing inside the game’s fantasy world is a euphoric moment, and the newly realised Area X borders on biblical as you bob your head through its mesmerising landscapes.
Ghost Giant is one of those special experiences you simply have to see for yourself. PSVR adds the magic touch as you aid Louis in rebuilding a friendship and tending to his sick mother, but it’s the emotional journey along the way that sticks with you. With some unforgettable moments and a delightful art style reminiscent of paper and cardboard cut-outs, this is a real treat inside Sony's headset. Ghost Giant is up there with the very, very best of what virtual reality can offer.
