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!
Actually, DO Go in There
HIGH Getting everyone out alive. Narrow second-place: getting everyone killed.
LOW Having a character die to the not-great combat QTEs.
WTF We can't make these recaps skippable?
HIGH The final area channels Lovecraft in a big way.
LOW The optional boss is a repeat from the main campaign.
WTF Slaying a gruesome monster and then having a pleasant conversation with its severed head.
