I gots me some VR reviews. I've been in adventure game heaven lately.
: I joked about the idea of using VR to experience blindness before, but this is a decent enough puzzle adventure. Took me about 3 hours to complete 100%. Like Stifled
, you have to use sound in order to "see" your surroundings (that means tapping your cane often, which only lasts for seconds, so it gets annoying). The graphics are better than Stifled, though that one had a better story overall. I picked it up for $10 during the sale, but it would be even better for $5 or so. Mildly recommended.
: Like Fatbot3
said, this is one of the best looking PSVR games out right now (on par with Torn, in my opinion). It's a story-based narrative where you play as a faerie who travels through the course of a year while manipulating events. I actually really loved this game, though it's probably not for everyone (it has a gentle and relaxing tone, like a walking sim). My only complaint is that there is no option for full locomotion and zipping through the teleport nodes kind of make me dizzy. It's an easy plat though; no missable trophies (about 5 hours total). $15-20 would be a good range.
A Fisherman's Tale
: As Jurai
mentioned, this is worth picking up (less than $10 would be ideal) although it's very short (1-2 hours) and feels like they could have done more with the idea. I think of it as a Russian nesting doll puzzle game. The graphics are sharp and the whole experience feels bright and polished. The plat is a bit of a pain because there is a trophy where you have to complete the game while grabbing less than 150 times, which is a problem in Chapter 3 because of pulley mechanisms and rope climbing (took me 4 tries, but I got it to pop while replaying that part from chapter select).
XING: The Land Beyond
: Earlier, Moonbathing
asked about this one. My first reaction was that the graphics were downright pixely compared to Fisherman's Tale. It's beautiful in its own right, though; this feels like the kind of game I was looking for when I bought Perfect VR or Island Time (both of which also featured coconuts). It's a puzzle platformer where you traverse a mythical island (similar to Robinson: The Journey, though not as pretty) while using day/night/weather mechanics to solve fun (not frustrating) puzzles. I played 4 hours of it and I'm halfway through, so it seems like an 8+ hour game with a straightforward plat (collectibles mostly, and you can replay levels). It's a creative puzzle game in the vein of The Talos Principle or The Witness, but with the added benefit of optional VR. My only disclaimer is that it might make people sick who aren't used to full locomotion and jumping around in VR. $10-15 is a perfect price.
I’m happy to see Dick Wilde 2 being released. I bought but haven’t played the first one yet. But a sequel implies that it performed well enough sales wise and that bodes well for the medium
Anyone played Cock Wilde 2 yet? Gameplay looks a lot more diverse than the first.
