Just got PSVR with Astro Bot + Tetris Effect and boooy have I missed so much all this time!!
The PSVR setup is chaotic but I managed to hide all the cables nicely, the headset itself is comfortable to wear and well built - even with the glasses on.
Let's talk about the games and WOW how the experience blew me away!!
I started with Tetris since I played the demo before and could get into VR quickly in comparison. The blocks felt close and gigantic and so immersive for a game all about immersion. The gameplay is enhanced 100% with VR (no pun intended) and I found myself playing it for a long period of time (something I don't do in Tetris games, generally).
I recommend all PSVR owners to give it a shot!
Now let's talk about the main event: Astro Bot
My first impression for the game was: A colorful platformer with cute robots and some VR effects.
My impression after 3 levels: Happiness
The moment I started the game and saw the big villain get closer to me I knew I'm about to play something special, this a NATIVE VR EXPERIENCE through and through.
the game is built for VR from scratch, the platforming + level design + mechanics all are VR based and this attention to detail made me happier every minute I'm playing it. Trailers don't do this game justice at all.
Add to that the cute hero (gives me Wall-E vipe) + world design / beautiful music ... this game is GOTY material indeed and now I understand the high praise.
Can't wait to get back to these games and more VR (RE7!!!) after I platinum RE2.
