Review The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners - Chapter 2: Retribution (PSVR2) - Great Game, Sinful Name
Born on the bayou
The Walking Dead: Saints & Sinners - Chapter 2: Retribution deserves recognition. Never before have we seen such a verbose title manage to communicate so little while saying so much. It fails to convey to newcomers that it’s a standalone game complete with its own campaign, and it coyly obfuscates the fact that this isn’t...

News Switchback VR Developer Investigating Game's Iffy PSVR2 Visuals
The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR is a huge disappointment, as illustrated in our review – and one of its biggest issues is just how blurry it looks. While the game has been developed exclusively for PSVR2, it barely looks like a step-up from PSVR, with muddy, middling visuals and even the odd performance hiccup. It’s not the only...

Review The Light Brigade (PSVR2) - Solid Rogue-Lite Doesn't Need to Reinvent the Wheel
Look for the light
Developer Funktronic Labs is no stranger to crafting interesting, meaningful roguelike experiences. Look no further than Nova-111, a fantastic game released back in 2015. Fast forward a handful of years, and the developers have revisited this ever-fruitful well, delivering the rogue-lite The Light Brigade for Sony's new headset...

Review The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR (PSVR2) - Lousy Rails Shooter Is a Supermassive Shame
Ride it out
Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, a rails shooter with a rollercoaster theme, was one of the surprise highlights of PSVR’s catalogue, so there was understandable enthusiasm surrounding the announcement of Supermassive’s spiritual successor, The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR. Unfortunately, this is a dour shadow of a follow-up, let-down by...

Hands On The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR Is Massively Underwhelming So Far
House of horrors
At what point do we consider Until Dawn a curse? UK developer Supermassive has been trying to better the PS4 narrative horror for the best part of a decade, with both its ongoing The Dark Pictures anthology and standalone The Quarry coming up short. Now, based on the first half of our playthrough, we’re sad to report that the...

Mini Review Job Simulator (PSVR2) - A Port Worthy of a Promotion
Job Simulator’s enduring popularity is no coincidence: it is, after all, the quintessential virtual reality game. Spread across four impressively interactive occupations, you’ll turn your comically exaggerated hands to all kinds of amusing tasks, like cooking the books as an office worker and dealing with a robbery as a convenience...

Mini Review Unplugged: Air Guitar (PSVR2) - An Entertaining Rhythm Game, Warts and All
This game’s got the beat
Originally released on the Meta Quest, Unplugged: Air Guitar is a rhythm game where you, well, play an air guitar. You strum with one hand and move the other to different parts of the neck according to a note chart similar to games like Rock Band or Guitar Hero. With a core track list of 20 plus tracks from across the...
News PSVR2 Launch Game What the Bat Now Playable in Stationary Standing Mode
Roomscale requirement eliminated
We had quite a bit of fun with What the Bat, a silly PSVR2 launch title that's well worth a go. The biggest criticism we had of the game is that it would only let you play in Roomscale mode. Roomscale — which allows you to walk around in a defined space — requires at least two square metres of room, but the...
News The Jump Scares May Be the Hardest Part of Switchback VR's Platinum
Scared to death
The Trophy list is out for rails shooter Until Dawn: Rush of Blood’s spiritual successor, The Dark Pictures: Switchback VR. Just browsing the trinkets, it looks like you’ll be well on your way to the Platinum purely by beating the campaign. There are then collectibles in the form of “marked gargoyles”, which you’ll need to...

Mini Review Puzzling Places (PSVR2) - A Lovely Game with a Few Problems
Puzzle me this, Batman
Puzzling Places is absolutely lovely — that’s the best way to describe it. A puzzle game best described as a 3D jigsaw, this is far and away the most relaxing time you can have with your PSVR2. The game leans into its unique appeal, allowing you to put together 3D dioramas of things that under normal circumstances would be...

Mini Review The Last Clockwinder (PSVR2) - A Satisfying, Chilled Out Puzzler
Going it a-clone
In a nutshell, The Last Clockwinder is a blend of solving puzzles and building factories. It's not the most original idea, but it's executed really well, taking advantage of virtual reality's unique perspective to create some truly engrossing gameplay. Set within the Clocktower, an enormous tree acting as a safe haven for various...

News Stunning Watersports Sim Kayak VR the Big Winner from PSVR2 Launch
Pavlov VR also off to strong start
Appropriately named Dutch developer Better Than Life’s beautiful watersports sim Kayak VR: Mirage was the best-selling PSVR2 launch title, according to data published by the PS Blog. The stunning release topped the charts in both North America and Europe, although the data does exclude titles eligible for free...
Mini Review Pistol Whip (PSVR2) - Still One of the Best VR Games You Can Play
Upon its PSVR launch, we found Pistol Whip to be a sublime experience, brilliantly blending rail shooter and rhythm mechanics. How does the upgraded version fare? Well, even better. Unlike some of the PSVR2 upgrades, Pistol Whip doesn’t make a huge impression graphically. It was a stylized title with a solid aesthetic on first attempt, so...
Mini Review No Man's Sky (PSVR2) - Explore an Infinite Universe on a Whole New Scale
Space is big
We've revisited No Man's Sky a number of times over the years. It only seems fair to check in every once in a while considering how much changes with each major update. The latest of these, Fractal, adds full PSVR2 support, allowing you to explore planets, space stations, and everything in between within Sony's new headset. The initial...

Review Before Your Eyes (PSVR2) - Eye Tracked Tearjerker Will Move You
Blink and you'll miss it
There will be no dry PSVR2 headsets among those who choose to try Before Your Eyes. This truly unique 90 minute narrative experience asks you to set aside your DualSense, and relies on the headset’s eye tracking as its primary form of engagement. Rather than using the controller, you’ll instead blink to interact with...

News Gran Turismo Comparison Video Shows Huge Leap in Quality from PSVR to PSVR2
A new generation
We've been banging on about how much better PSVR2 is compared to its predecessor, but it's videos like the one above (from ElAnalistaDeBits) that really show the difference. With many years between iterations of Sony's virtual reality hardware, it was always going to be more impressive, but Gran Turismo amply shows off the huge...
News WW2 Flight Sim Aces of Thunder Soaring to PSVR2 from the Makers of War Thunder
Bring your own sick bags
The free-to-play flight sim War Thunder launched on PS4 just days after its launch, and developer Gaijin Entertainment has been supporting it ever since. The point is that the team knows its way around military planes, so the announcement of Aces of Thunder (which isn't free-to-play, by the way) is pretty exciting. This...

Mini Review Rez Infinite (PSVR2) - PSVR Classic Remains a Must-Play on PSVR2
To Infinite and beyond
Rez Infinite was a transcendent experience on PSVR. A game originally from the PS2 days, the title seems at home in virtual reality to such a degree that it might as well have been made with that in mind. And the PSVR2 glow-up actually makes things even better. First and foremost, the graphical upgrade is immediately...

Mini Review What the Bat? (PSVR2) - Bonkers, Bite-Sized Fun Ideal for Beginners
What the Bat replaces your arms and hands with a pair of baseball bats, and has you swinging through a series of short but sweet levels in an attempt to live a normal life. It's madness, but works wonderfully. This PSVR2 curio makes solid use of the hardware to deliver one of its silliest yet most appealing launch games. Playing is so...

Mini Review Zombieland Headshot Fever Reloaded (PSVR2) - A Simple Yet Fun VR Zombie Shooter
It's time to nut up or shut up
With close to 50 games launching alongside the PSVR2, it’s easy to overlook some of the smaller VR ports like Zombieland: Headshot Fever Reloaded. This is a VR zombie shooter that drops you in the comedically violent world of the 2009 cult classic Zombieland. On first impressions, this isn’t going to be anything to...
Mini Review After the Fall (PSVR2) - Standout Co-Op Apocalypse Shooter
After the Fall is a co-op multiplayer, post-apocalyptic, first-person shooter from the developers of Arizona Sunshine, Vertigo Games.

Developer Owlchemy Labs quickly found a winning formula with its virtual reality titles, most notably Job Simulator.

You can feel that same core running through Cosmonious High, a...
Review Pavlov VR (PSVR2) - A Must-Buy for PSVR2 Owners
Get ready to shoot, lie, and shoot some more
Pavlov VR has nestled itself among the roster of PSVR2 launch games, crossing from PC to console for the first time. On the surface, this tactile online shooter is all about the guns, with everything from heavy-hitting snipers to revolvers. In our first session with the game, we were starry-eyed over the...
