Killing Floor: Incursion Review
Although I haven't played Killing Floor games before, something tells me that the story isn't the most important thing going for them. That might explain the rather goofy setup of Killing Floor: Incursion, playing a soldier who was knocked unconscious during a battle with the undead and has woken up in a hospital lab.
Time Carnage VR Review
Have you ever dreamed of building a time machine and go into the far-flung future (or past) to marvel at the wonders of our planet’s existence? Actually, I misspoke. Replace the word “marvel” with “shoot the hell out of” and you’ve got an accurate description of Time Carnage VR, a wave-based shooter for the PlayStation VR.
Island Time Review
Island Time, a PSVR game developed by Flight School, is not the idyllic island getaway I had expected. Instead of swinging lazily in a hammock while beautiful island girls feed me fruit, this virtual island adventure is a constant struggle for survival. Trapped on a small island with no rescue in sight, it’s up to you to craft tools to make your own meals in this inventive, good-humored VR experience.
Quill is a young mouse with an adventurous spirit. Born with an explorer’s heart, she traverses the nooks and crannies of the Kingdom, a land that was once home to her proud race until it was usurped by the evil Sarffog, a fire breathing serpent. While exploring a forest, Quill comes in contact with a mysterious crystal that forges a connection between her and the game’s second major character: you
Shooty Fruity Review
I love everything about Shooty Fruity, from its concept and art style to its gameplay and Move functionality. This is a game that gets more and more fun the longer you play it, because new levels introduce more complex job assignments and enemy types that require experimentation with the game’s selection of weapons.
Skyrim VR Review
The day “virtual reality” became an idea, people clamored for immersive, interactive fantasy worlds with which to could escape the hardships of life. Virtual worlds have been a staple of science fiction stories and pop culture, from The Matrix to Sword Art Online. I remember when virtual reality reached its first fever pitch in the 1990s as something with a lot of promise but without the technological means to make it succeed. However, with the rise of consumer VR headsets, the dream of immersive virtual reality edges ever closer to, well, reality.
Everest VR Review
The risk of death and injury, be it from aberrant weather or oxygen deprivation, has claimed the lives of those looking to conquer the elements in a climb of a lifetime. I will never know the experience of tackling the mountain but with the PlayStation VR, I can appreciate the grandeur of the expedition without jeopardizing my sedentary lifestyle.
Voltron VR Chronicles Review
Voltron VR Chronicles is a small and sweet love letter to a great cartoon series. It also makes great wish fulfillment—on par with Star Wars Battlefront’s VR Mission—for those whose childhoods were enriched by the series back in the day. If there’s a specific thing to call out against the game, I was a little bummed that there were no interactive bits involving Voltron itself.
Don't Knock Twice Review
Don’t Knock Twice is a short, play-it-once-and-forget kind of game whose purpose is to promote a film that might have flown below a radar or two. I enjoyed the genuinely unnerving moments of psychological terror that I thought brought the game within arms reach of Silent Hill.
Tiny Trax Review
There are a lot of talented and patience content creators out there in video game land, and I bet they could produce some stellar race tracks using in-game assets. Tiny Trax is a celebration of slot car racing, and with its great track design and worthy adversaries, I didn’t realize how much fun I was having until I stopped.
Ancient Amuletor Review
Any goodwill to come out Ancient Amuletor (there is a lot!) is largely ruined by a shocking lack of content. I don't know what the developer’s post-launch plans are but unless they offer the game for nothing over $5, there’s no reason to play this (admittedly) great game until there’s enough content to justify your time.
Star Trek Bridge Crew Review
Star Trek Bridge Crew won’t change the world, but it provides a stunning realization of the Star Trek franchise and brings with it an unparalleled level of immersion and VR fun. I can think of no other franchise that’s better suited to cooperative VR play than Star Trek, and Bridge Crew makes playing with strangers fun again. It also represents the ultimate in wish fulfillment.
