"Batman: Arkham VR is short, its gameplay is rudimentary, and its story retreads old ground. But it also has moments that--for fans of the Dark Knight--are the ultimate expression of wish fulfillment." Tamoor Hussain [full review]

"At its core, Battlezone VR's classic, straight-forward gameplay works on Sony's new VR machine (especially since the game utilizes a traditional Dualshock controller rather than Sony's Move wands). Persistent, unavoidable frustrations drag the experience down at times, but playing with friends ameliorates many of those issues." Scott Butterworth [full review]

"As a dark, well-crafted psychological journey in VR, the game captures the distinct duality of being a curious observer--and, conversely, a participant who simply wants to survive and escape. Its enigmatic visuals, choice-driven narrative, and provocations on morality are the driving forces that warrant multiple playthroughs, and all of those aforementioned elements combine to make Here They Lie one of the standout offerings among the PSVR's launch lineup." Miguel Concepcion [full review]

"PlayStation VR Worlds is a game with really high highs and really low lows. Ocean Descent and The London Heist are great introductory VR experiences that I think everyone should try, whether they're into games or not. Their biggest downfall is that they're both really short. Scavenger Odyssey, on the other hand, just made me motion sick. Overall, its a collection of novel but insubstantial tech demos." -- Jimmy Thang [full review]

RIGS Mechanized Combat League Review -- 6/10

No Caption Provided

"RIGS controls are top-notch, and aside from the grating, repetitive announcers, the arenas are colorful places that I love competing in. But the smaller details that RIGS stumbles over make it hard to justify continuing after completing an initial season. RIGS is a great showcase for how to make a VR shooter, but it's also a game that could learn from the "less is more" mantra." -- Justin Haywald [full review]

Rez Infinite Review -- 9/10

"Rez Infinite is the game to buy a PSVR for. It's hypnotic and enveloping. And it's transformative, both within itself and in the wider scheme of the experiences made possible by VR. You don't want to sleep on Rez Infinite, because with the addition of more polished visual flair and the dreamy Area X, we have a new classic for the new generation on our hands." Alexa Ray Corriea [full review]

SuperHyperCube Review -- 6/10

No Caption Provided

"SuperHyperCube feels more like a bite-sized, meditative experience that requires a bit of luck, rather than a game that calls purely upon skill or knowledge. It's a game you want to love, but it's also one that keeps itself at arm's length." Peter Brown [full review]

Thumper Review -- 9/10

"It sounds odd to claim that a lack of consistently original music wouldn't be a major problem for a rhythm game, but music isn't the point. Thumper thrives due to the way it marries speed, simple controls, and mesmerizing atmosphere. It's far more convincing in VR, where you're enveloped in the game's space and free of distractions from the outside world, but it shouldn't be ignored by those without the appropriate hardware. Thumper, no matter how you play it, is too good to miss." Peter Brown [full review]

"Rush of Blood can be completed in roughly an hour and a half, and though you can unlock a few alternate paths in a couple of levels, they generally lead to more of the same--just in a different arrangement. Rush of Blood has a disturbing flavor overall, but that alone can't save what amounts to a largely predictable experience filled with straightforward action, dumb enemies, and predictable frights." Peter Brown [full review]
