This is one of the busiest weeks the PSVR has had in quite a while with over half a dozen new releases. There’s something for everyone, too, with single player, multiplayer, and even non-interactive narrative options to pass around.
If you missed last week’s releases then you can see them here. UploadVR has also launched the ‘UploadVR PSVR Community’ on PlayStation 4! Join up, find other gamers to play with, and engage in discussions with them.
Also, don’t forget to check out our list of the 9 Best PlayStation VR Games if you need any extra inspiration.
Theseus, from Forge Reply
In this dark third-person adventure game you take on the role of the titular hero, Theseus, in a quest to slay the evil Minotaur. The camera is always in a fixed position like in Chronos as you explore, hide, and fight your way to the end.
Recommendation: There are some good ideas here, but it comes up lacking in most areas. Read our full review for more on why.
Apollo 11, from Immersive VR Education
This VR experience has been around for quite a while and is finally making its way over to PSVR. Join the historic crew of the very first moon landing in Apollo 11 as you witness history like never before.
Recommendation: Absolutely worth it for space and history buffs.
Monkey King, from Digital Domain
You’ve probably heard, read, or seen some form of the Monkey King story, popularized in the classic 16th century Chinese novel named Journey to the West. This take on the story lets you experience it all in VR as a front-and-center viewer of all the main plot points.
Recommendation: It’s purely passive and doesn’t do much we haven’t seen before, but the animations are fun.
Heroes of the Seven Seas, from Time of Virtual Reality
Price: $6.99 (Currently Discounted)
First released as a Gear VR game, Heroes of the Seven Seas puts you in a bunch of pirate-themed naval battles as you quest for bounty and adventure.
Recommendation: Not very good at all. Here’s our full review of the original Gear VR version.
Infinite Minigolf, from Zen Studios
Golf is one of the foundational video game sports that you’ll find on virtually every single gaming device on the planet. Infinite Minigolf brings a fun, lighthearted take on the genre to PSVR.
Recommendation: Surprising amount of fun and content here. Good online too.
Smashbox Arena, from Archiact
Dodgeball in VR, but with a ton of superpowers and crazy powerups that let you do stuff like throw meteor-sized balls and hold up energy shields. We know, it sounds a bit crazy, but it actually adds up to one of VR’s best multiplayer games.
Recommendation: Tons of fun, especially if you have a group of friends to play with. Here are some more thoughts on the original Vive version.
Tiny Trax, from FuturLab
Remember what it was like to race those electric cars around plastic tracks in your room, then never want to clean it all up after? Tiny Trax is kind of like that, but in VR. There are definitely some Blazerush vibes and the races can get very intense.
Recommendation: Tiny Trax is a great game for arcade-style racing fans, but is pretty tough to get the hang of. Read our full review for more.
