      This is a new type of experience. It's only the first VR game of its kind, but it's really impressive. First person shooters feel way more natural when you're actually holding the gun in your hand. I hope to see more games like this in the future. This is the only VR game that I have tried so far that actually feels like a full and complete game, and not just a tech demo. This game actually has an interesting and deep story. It’s not just a shooting gallery. It gets really interesting.

      I bought this game when I got a deal on PSVR as an initial impulse purchase just so I had games to play on my new PSVR. The reviews were decent, and while I expected to enjoy it for the gameplay, I found myself appreciating the story and character connections a lot more than the gameplay, which is rather mediocre. I am definitely happy with the purchase, but won’t be replaying it.

      Farpoint is a great attempt to bring FPS gameplay into VR. The enemy movement is a bit simple, and I'm not a fan of how it controls (However, I don't have the special controller for the game.) That being said, I do like the fact that it has more freedom than Rush of Blood. If you have PSVR and like FPS games, I would say that you should give it a chance.

      Farpoint has been out long enough that it’s extremely reasonably priced for what you get. As one of the headline VR titles for PSVR you cannot go wrong picking this up. The controls work with the aim OR moves (which I got with my Skyrim bundle). I recommend this alien blasting game for anyone that is a fan of FPS games at all!

      Only played on about a week playing Farpoint.Have a lot to learn still about the aim controller buttons & such. I believe I’m getting close to finishing the game already,hope other games aren’t this short.Picture quality in game thru headset is a little disappointing (blurry)maybe it’s just this game.All in all it’s pretty cool.

      This game is so much fun! Detractors will say it is nothing more than a corridor shooting gallery game. But I found this to be incredibly fun and a new way to play! This game can be played with the DS4, but a PSVR Aim controller is a must to truly experience this game.

      Makes Me Sick...

      Yes, I mean that literally- this VR game gives me motion sickness. Which is crazy because other VR games do not! Maybe its the graphics or lagging... who knows. But i get a headache and feel like Im gonna throw up each time I play this, If I didn't feel that way it would be pretty fun though. Not a great story line but fun to shoot nonetheless.

      This is a really fun game when used with the AIM controller, which is probably the only way you should experience this game. I was screaming like a baby when the little spider aliens would jump at me. Really immersive and worth it for a deep VR campaign.
