Could it be true? a proper FPS on VR may finally have arrived? VR gaming is really taking off this year, Developers are delivering on what us gamers have been craving for so long with great graphics, immersion, replayability and of course FUN!
Bullet Sorrow VR delivers on all of the essentials that gamers want with its gun fun game style and great immersive environment battling waves of soldiers from all directions with a seductive looking female ninja to keep you on your toes.
To sum up bullet sorrow, in a nutshell, think TIME CRISIS ON STEROIDS in VR, the story takes you into the 2030’s where you wake up with no memory and must fight your way out with your ally nova against a global arms corporation aptly named “S Corp”. The main objective is simple to break into their headquarters to find out their evil plans and find your backstory, Even though this sounds familiar to every FPS nowadays it still works brilliantly but there’s a twist you can manipulate TIME.
Your weapons of choice are dual wielded pistols using your two controllers which using the grip buttons to reload have the best feedback of any VR games I’ve played you really get the sensation of the clips going into the guns. The sights feel accurate although it’s impossible to resist spraying anything in site with an uzi weapon. You’ll find weapon pickups throughout the game including things such as shotguns and grenade launchers which have limited ammo so when depleted you’ll automatically revert back to your starting pistols.
As you go through the game you’ll find yourself on your hands and knees trying to dodge bullets and get to cover giving you a good workout giving, even more, immersion in your own living room but onto the elephant in the room BULLET TIME!
Activated with the right thumbstick this is really where the game shines, bullets flying right by your face in slow motion making the whole matrix feeling become momentarily real although you have to use this feature very wisely as it only lasts for a short time.
Moving through you’ll find yourself in different environments which look great shooting waves of enemies appearing from a similar door or spot making it slightly easy for any experienced gamer but still fun. The AI are slightly dumb in this respect running right up to you and just stand there like a rabbit in the headlights at times and after clearing all your enemies you will move onto the next area.
Movement is via teleportation which did make for slight nausea at first and also has a cool down which was slightly annoying when needing to move or pick up health packs.
So onto my main criticism the voice over… it often just didn’t make any sense was incorrect or just cut off mid sentence.
It’s not perfect but the technology is still young and games like these are what we gamers need and with the new update just released you can now experience TIME CRISIS sorry BULLET SORROW with up to ten players cross platform on the VIVE and RIFT.
Overall this game is up there with some of the best VR shooters I’ve played and is a must buy for owners of VR.
