Best PSVR Games
Below is a list of the best PSVR games. These are our favourite PlayStation VR games, shown in no particular order, as selected by our editorial team.
Team Asobi has refined the potential teased in The Playroom VR with the staggering Astro Bot Rescue Mission, a virtual reality platformer spread across 20 fantasy levels. By building its stages around you in 360-degrees and stereoscopic 3D, the title manages a level of immersion impossible on a standard display, all the while delivering best in class gameplay and some of the most charming art you’ll find on the PS4 full-stop. A sensationally strong effort, and by far one of the best games on PSVR.
If you're looking for a more peaceful VR experience, Winds & Leaves might be just what the doctor ordered. Your job is to repopulate the world with beautiful plant life, picking fruit and then planting the seeds to gradually grow whole forests. Able to fast-forward time, you can bring about some wonderful environments in next to no time. It's a very simple game and won't be to everyone's tastes, but this is a great, stress-free PSVR title for when you're bored of all those guns and such.
Brighton-based developer FuturLab knows how to make a great feeling game, and Tiny Trax’s Scalextric-inspired slot racing is no exception. The game sees you seated stationary in the centre of some increasingly complicated tracks, and it’s up to you to follow the direction of your vehicle, as it skids and slides around hairpin bends. A clever drift mechanic adds depth to an otherwise simplistic affair, and while it’s relatively light on content, mastering its courses will require practice and precision.
Fracked takes on the challenge of moving about in virtual reality with style. This is a fun and action-packed first person shooter with stylish visuals and a great mix of traversal. As well as walking on your own two feet, you'll climb, ski, and leap about the fracking facility. It all leads to some of the most engaging VR action since Blood & Truth.
Every console accessory requires a rails shooter, and while there was reasonable concern that Until Dawn: Rush of Blood would undo all of Supermassive Games’ superb work in its narrative driven teen thriller, this is actually an entertaining accompaniment. Set up like a fairground ride, the dual-wielding gunplay is really entertaining, while there are some great set-piece jump scares here that will have your heart racing.
Adapting Clap-Hanz’s accessible click-click-click golf gameplay format for PSVR must have been a challenge, but the Japanese developer passed the test with Everybody’s Golf VR. While there is an adjustment period, playing with a single PS Move wand is unbelievably satisfying. Gorgeous visuals add to the title’s charm, though a relative lack of content means you won’t be hitting the links forever.
Comfortably the best online shooter for PSVR, Firewall Zero Hour wears its Rainbow Six: Siege influences on its urban camo sleeve – but while its tense tactical gameplay may be familiar, its use of the PSVR Aim Controller makes it a much more personal experience. The game would benefit from longer matches and there’s always room for more maps, but assuming it can establish a strong community, it’ll have you checking your corners in virtual reality for months to come.
