Wanted Killer VR does exactly what it needs to do, providing plenty of stylish action with a unique look and a decent amount of polish. While some of its features are at odds with the chaotic gameplay, and there are some other annoyances, it’s worth its price.

Skyrim VR translates one of the most entertaining RPGs of the previous generation to virtual reality with next to no hiccups along the way. Though there are a few minor irritants, the core experience is ludicrously fun and runs like a dream.
Ark Park is a jack of all trades, but master of none. Resource collecting is the thread that attempts to tie several dissonant gameplay mechanics together but it’s not nearly deep enough or engaging enough to be successful at it. Any enjoyment that could be had by observing dinosaurs and wild jungles is marred by blurry graphics. This is one title that ought to go extinct.
On the full release, The Wizards will get access to three new story chapters, two of them including epic boss fights. The update will also bring "Master Enchantments" - powerful upgrades for all the spells. We also managed to highly optimize the game and increase its visual fidelity. The major and most visible difference is in the lighting. Since the full release, all spells will cast light on its surroundings, which will lead to quite interesting visual effects.
Ultimately, Orch Star is a well-made title. You won’t encounter many bugs despite the Early Access sticker on the box, and the graphics are excellently rendered. If your only desire is to watch as a horde of betusked astronauts crush their enemies, this one is for you.

Controls are often not as responsive as you’d hope, and evidence of “flat gaming” roots abounds, but Fallout 4 VR brought the entirety of the massive, content-rich adventure, with hundreds of hours of gameplay, to VR, and it did so with little in the way of graphical compromise. No other virtual reality title is as technically advanced, and almost none offer the value for money found here, either. Bethesda has set the standard for future AAA VR.
ROCKFISH Games launch the long-awaited EVERSPACE™ Hardcore Mode as a free update on Xbox One and the Windows 10 Store, upping the stakes and challenging even the most talented pilots. The brand new Hardcore Mode gameplay trailer shows what it has to offer.
If there’s one takeaway from Guns’n’Stories: Bulletproof VR, it’s that you don’t need to be a AAA studio to develop an entertaining wave-shooter with solid production values. Guns’n’Stories doesn’t have the largest amount of content, and its two-handed weapons could use some fine-tuning, but the quality and experience, especially for the price, makes this title easy to recommend.
While it is respectable that Syndrome VR attempts to pay homage to some of the best titles in the sci-fi survival horror genre, it neither distinguishes itself with new ideas nor does it improve or even match the elements it lifts from these titles. Its campaign is filled with backtracking and padding, and when anything of significance happens, this, too, is let down by poor stealth and shooter gameplay. Furthermore, the tacked-on VR mode is not up to the industry standard and doesn't justify the higher price. The most hardcore fans of the genre may be able to overlook many of its flaws, but as it stands, there are much better options out there.
