      From what I’ve played of it, it’s pretty good.im sure that as I would have plunged deeper into the game, I would have been completely taken by it.unfortunately I suffer from motion sickness lol.psvr is a very good and Emersive experience, but I’m just not cut out for it.i can’t sit on a game like Doom VFR, for more then 7 minutes tops.i get extremely nautious.i literally start to feel my stomach preparing to erupt as I’m forcing myself to tough it out and play through it anyway.the teleportation system honestly eases the experience for me, but the restriction of regular movement can be frustrating.when changing the settings to regular movement though, I go from extremely happy, to maybe this isn’t such a good idea after all, within a matter of about 4 minutes.i decided to give it all up and just hand my entire vr set over to my cousin.so far he enjoys it.havent heard any complaints from him regarding motion sickness.that haven been said, this is a good game, if you can stomach it lol

      Doom VFR doesn't directly follow the same narrative as Doom 2016, but it's there in spirit. It's a little strange having hands that seem to jut out from your face, but you get used to it after a few minutes. The movement on DS4 is smooth and aiming by moving your head becomes 2nd nature. I have not tried the other control methods (Aim or Move), but from what I've read they're not great. It's fun to jump in and blast around for a while. I grabbed it on sale + GCU, so it's a worthy addition to my PSVR library. Pick it up if you like Doom, but know it's pretty short (a few hours) and your character talks, which is slightly annoying.

      The previous reviews on this product were in relation to the bundle with the PSVR and did not address the game itself. I thoroughly used to enjoy Doom in the 90s and was hoping for a great revival. The game looks amazing and, so far, I have enjoyed the storyline. However, the game does not utilize fluid movement but more like the click and move movement in old PC games like Myst. It jumps, what appears, five steps upon every standard movement and can be disorienting during the combat scenes. Other than that, the game looks amazing and I look forward to finishing it soon. I would recommend this to a friend if the movement was not an issue for them.

      Fun game! It's a different experience being in the world of DOOM and seeing everything to scale around you. The only issue I had was the Move controls. Would have been more ideal to have a Skyrim VR-esque control scheme. But you get used to it. The teleporting and shooting with the move controls were amazing, though. The combat was excellent and the graphics were much better than I expected. Story was not that great but remember, it's a DOOM game. All in all, I'd highly recommend picking this one up. It's about 6 or so hours long and definitely has replay value to it.

      A Must-Play VR Title (if you have Move Controller)

      I'll admit, previews of this game don't do it justice. It seems like you're just teleporting everywhere without the actual thrills/gore of DOOM 2016. But that's not 100% true, there's a smooth movement option, and if you're playing with a Move Controller (or better yet, the PS VR Aim controller), this is a pretty unique experience. I wouldn't recommend playing this if all you have is a regular PS4 controller. DOOM 2016 is already 60fps and plays great: this won't really offer you anything better.

      Difficult to maintain tracking

      It might just be me, I have a PS4 pro and motion controllers from the PS3 days. I consistently lost tracking during game play because I would have to turn around all the time to look for things or shoot. I guess I am used the tracking from the HTC vive. I got most of my shots off and it was a great looking environment to run around in. I think the game itself is well made and the sounds for the atmosphere are fantastic.

      I finally had a chance to play this after installing it the other day and it is so much fun. It's just a extension, somewhat, of the most recent DOOM. I was skeptical of the teleportation suit system but it is so fun. Shoot a demon into a staggered state, then telefrag into them and reap the health/ammo rewards. The beginning of the story is kind of cheesy, but come on it's DOOM. Keep moving, keep shooting, keep staying alive.

      Not Quite Ready for VR.

      It looks pretty, the battling is intense, the VR is amazing to see, BUT, the motion of the character leaves much to be desired when weighed against the nauseating lurching going on. Maybe I haven't found the setting to allow it, but you either teleport all over the place or you blink to a new spot with the +pad. The turning is either segmental (read that as 1/8 turn per click) or dizzyingly fast despite setting it down to 5% sensitivity. Do NOT Stand when playing this game.
