This Is Not A Review: The Sony PSVR Launch Titles

Welcome to This Is Not A Review. In these articles we discuss general impressions, ideas and thoughts on any given game, but as the title implies, it’s not a review. Instead, it’s an exercise in offering a quick recommendation (or dismissal) after spending enough time to grasp the ideas and gameplay of a thing without necessarily playing it from A to Z.

The subject of this installment: Twelve different PSVR launch titles!

The Borne Supremacy

HIGH Charging up an axe attack that stuns large dudes so I can rip their innards out. Neat!

LOW The Chalice Dungeons look and feel almost identical no matter which variations are triggered.

WTF The 'real' ending. Who thought that would be a satisfying conclusion to a forty-plus hour adventure?
