    GREAT BATTLES BUT LACK OF DIVERSITY

    Battlezone has a great co-op campaign story but it s not innovative. That s where i take a star out because it does amazing things but there is a little issue. The maps look practically the same. It would have been better if the devs were projecting 3 or 4 different maps at least in variation but no the map look just the same. This game use procedural technology which means that the replay ability is amazing although be aware of the most frustrating rules that the devs implemented for gamers that just started. 1. if all your team mate and no chance to be revived anymore then you failed your entire campaign. This is where it s frustrating because if you just started the game for the first time, it will be difficult. Also the mechanics of the game aren't well explained. For example they do not mention that if you stay close to your friends it will heal you automatically and regain your energy. A lot of players i play online with weren't aware for this regeneration. You are also dependent on other players which means that someone can screw your campaign for you to start all over again. 2. you do not keep your upgrades and you have to restart to accumulate your point to get them back. Verdict 4 stars for the game as it is a good game to start with although not goo enough for a 59 price tag

    Great looking but difficulty can get steep

    Battlezone is a tank combat VR game that takes place in a Tron-like world. Visually the game looks absolutely amazing with immersive visuals that make you feel like you're piloting a powerful tank thru futuristic environments. On the downside, the challenge ramps up quickly and there is a scarcity of ammo making the game harder than it has to be. Also, you aim your weapon by using the right analog stick which can make things hairy when the action ramps up. Other VR games let you aim by simply looking at your target and Battlezone would have benefited from such an option. If you're a PS+ subscriber you can mitigate the difficulty somewhat by accessing the game's co-op mode, otherwise be ready for some pretty intense battles.

    This game - simulation - is absolutely incredible. Want to experience the power of VR? This will do it. No matter which direction you look, there is a richly detailed world to immerse yourself in. I actually started to get motion sickness after about an hour as your brain is telling you your moving, but your body is not...so you'll need to take breaks when playing this as once you don the headset, the outside world is gone! As a bonus with all VR games, the TV displays what your looking at so others around can see what you see.

    I was not sure about this game, I bought all the games available when the VR was released, Let me tell you, This one is the BEST so far! You really feel like your driving your tank and the graphics are great! So cool how you can see your selected guns above your head (Through the tanks windows) Some very sweet weapons and gameplay! Even the intro MUST be experienced! The replay value is off the charts!, Get this one, You won't regret it!

    Awesome VR Game

    I love this game. First, you don't need to be logged in on-line to play; but you can if you wish (unlike Valkyrie, which won't play without being logged in, which I HATE!). Second, the VR really makes you feel as if you're in the battle; looking up and back at things that flew over or moved behind you. The controls are simple enough that there's not much of a learning curve; and the game is good at explaining what button does what. Finally, it's just a fun shoot and destroy game; that's not too easy to beat.

    As I've been playing PSVR games, one consistent personal issue is nausea due to games letting you move around freely with no teleportation like Super Stardust Ultra VR, Loading Human, Driveclub, and a few others. Battlezone was the first game of this type that gave me no issues and as a bonus, it's a really fun game in its own right. You control a tank that takes on arena missions to take out a variety enemies in randomly generated campaigns or multiplayer, which is really well done.

    Very Fun Co-op VR experience

    I purchased this game to play online with a buddy that also has Playstation VR. The Game is a Blast to play, and would get 5 stars if the difficulty were toned down a bit, I am an avid gamer and play a lot of games on hard difficulty, but on this game, unless your team is all very good, then this is a very tough game to get through the end. That being said, overall, the gameplay is good, and battling it out in a tank in VR is a definite must. One of the best games out for VR so far.
