    Somewhere between VR demo and VR game

    Feels like a VR demo disk at times BUT still worth buying if you are a gamer's club member, after the 20% off and double points (if your not a gamers club member either get a membership before buying or wait for it to come down in price) Had several mini type games on it. -the deep was a lot of fun the first time through it but you are just stand there looking around and doesn't have much replay value to it. However it was very immersive and great for demonstrating the VR type of environment. very entertaining watching people react to it for the first time (my son screamed like a little girl when he saw the shark). -danger ball was ok. was kind of like a glorified version of pong and takes a little time to get used to just turning you head to move your paddle and not your whole body (like when you are tying to hit a soccer ball with your head). -the street luge was fun (once again took a little bit to get used to moving just the head and not the whole body) -salvage was my favorite so far and does a great job blending the VR with using the regular controller. Much more in-depth and interactive compared to the other games -London heist (have not had time to try it yet but will update this review after I do) I do not have the move controllers yet so please keep in mind that this review is from the perspective of only having the headset, camera, and regular controller.

    A decent VR game entry

    VR World is basically five games in one. Some games are better than others. I'll review each separately. London Heist: The best of the five. This one has a story behind it where you steal a diamond. Graphics are well done for this segment (especially with a PS4 Pro). Gameplay is simple and mostly consist of you shooting things with the Move controller aside from the brief puzzle segment with stealing the diamond. Too bad it's only about an hour in length. Danger Ball is basically like Pong except you use your head to direct the paddle to bounce the ball back. Would have been great for multiplayer, but unfortunately there is none. Scavengers Odyssey has you pilot a mech suit using a DualShock 4. It's a very hom hum FPS type game. Combat is kind of boring since there are only like three type of enemies and two variety of guns you can use. VR Luge has you racing down some roads and streets. You control your lateral movements by tilting your head. It's all time trial based. You can't really crash in anything unfortunately, you're simply slowed down. Ocean Descent isn't much of a game. You descend into an ocean to look at things and then watch a shark attack you briefly. If you can find the game for cheap, it's not a bad buy for London Heist and Danger Ball.

    A great primer for Playstation VR

    Playstation Worlds is a collection of experiences and short games that provides a nice introduction into the world of VR. Right from the opening menu screen, which puts you in the middle of a giant hall full of all kinds of nifty effects, you know you're going to be treated to some pretty amazing eye candy. Ocean Descent is a passive experience (you don't even need to use the controller) that drops you to the bottom of the ocean in a diving cage for an up close encounter with a great white shark. Scavenger's Odyssey is a short sci-fi adventure where you pilot a small spider-vehicle thru derelict space ships in search of a fabled artifact. The London Heist is a 4 part adventure that makes use of the Move controller where you take place in jewel heist. There are also a few more mini games on the disk but these three are the highlights and really show off the potential of VR.

    The 5 games each have their thing. My standout has to be The London Heist. Fun thing I do is break the immersion by leaning out the van during the chase and watch the vehicles pass by. I like the luge game. I remember the setup they had for Conan where he lied on the floor. So I set myself up the same way. It will definitely lower the chances of getting motion sickness. The ocean game is beautiful one time experience. No need to play that over and over. I didn't play the space game but my brother did and he enjoyed it. That leaves the head ball game. Didn't play that although many sites do say it is a stand out. Every game is a different experience. It depends on you if you feel it's worth trying. Would I recommend it? Sure. Each game is different and shows off what you can do with PSVR.

    I'm not sure what I was expecting with this disc. None of the games on it are full games. This is more of a glorified demo, and none of the games last very long or have much replay value. The ocean descent game was probably the most immersive of the five games, though you don't use any controllers for it. The problem is that once you've completed it, you have absolutely no reason to ever do it again. The experience doesn't change. The Luge game is ok, but its really easy to lose control and the flickering lights kill immersion pretty bad. The Ball game is VERY hard, but maybe thats just me. Wasn't impressed with the Heist or the Space games either. I suppose if you just want short experiences to show you what VR is like, this isn't a bad RENTAL. I do regret buying it though

    A great collection of games to show off the VR

    We purchased several games when we got our VR. Surprisingly, this game has been used more than the other 4 we bought by everyone in my family, including my 3 kids. The games may be shorter but all of them are a lot of fun and provide hours of entertainment. They also give a glimpse as to the potential of the VR. The graphics are decent but I expect better as new games are released. If you haven't checked out the VR its worth it. Its a bit scary because you realize that this is the future of gaming and that you can get so absorbed in a world that there may be a day not so far off where people could live a good portion of their lives in a virtual environment. If I had to pick one game right now for the VR it would be Worlds.

    VR SHOWCASE

    This disc comes with 5 games that showcase different kinds of VR experiences. There's one in space, one in the ocean, there's a sport game, it's more like a modern 3D Pong in a way and it's really fun. There's also VR Luge game which happens down busy streets with cars. And lastly there's the London Heist which seems to be most folks' favorite. Before the PSVR launched, I got a chance to demo it in store at my Best Buy. It was the Ocean Descent with the shark that scared the cr@p outta me and made me a believer in the magic of VR! This disc is worth picking up if you want to check out a variety of VR perspectives. Keep in mind the games are a little shorter than most but that's expected since ya get 5 on one disc.

    With a variety of games this basically is like a step up from a demo. The shark experience is cool and I'd say the first thing I ever experienced in vr, though I recommend watching someone's reactions from it as they can be priceless. Though, the game I enjoyed most was London Heist. That's the closest thing to an elongated demo. It's pretty cool partaking in a fleshed out shooter with a basic storyline. You need the motion controllers to play it, but many games will require them or make them more accessible. It's hard to rate the others because I didn't have much interest in them. It's the perfect game to get your feet wet in ps vr.

    I feel like if you are really starved for VR content it may be worth it and for the $8.00 I spent I think it was worth playing London Heist. However, that's really the only game that is any good. I tried the Shark Attack and it was pretty underwhelming. Same as the luge and I didn't try the ball one. I also have Starblood Arena and Eve Valkyrie so the scavenger thing I didn't try either. Basically, if you want to be in an action movie for about 30 minutes via London Heist and that experience is worth whatever you pay for it. Go for it. Otherwise, I wouldn't buy it just because other games are better like Farpoint or Superhot.

    Although some see this as a glorified tech demo (and some of the experiences truly are), in my opinion this is a no brainer as an entry piece of software for the PSVR, and a great way to show it off to your friends and family. Ocean Descent is great to show off to virtually anyone, as they sit in a shark tank and get to see everything unfold around them. London Heist is easily the best experience here, and it truly makes you feel like a mobster and has very accurate shooting and ducking mechanics that makes it feel very real. I wish this experience was longer or even developed into its own game, but its worth the price of admission alone.

    VR worlds is a set of mini games if you will or different scenarios that you are dropped into. The highlight being The London Heist which is a cool experience for anyone trying VR for the first time. VR Worlds gives you an expanse of different "worlds" from driving a mech in space, a luge race, and being plunged into the ocean among others. Good VR experience with not much content but for a budge price definitely a good show piece for a PSVR starter.

    I waited for this one since I tried the demo that the PSVR came with. the price drop is what really finally got me to purchase it. its great since the games alone really wont be much but since this is basically a bunch of games sold as one it makes up for them being so short. this is still early on in VR and they have so far done a great job for this price point. I still recommend getting it since it shows a wide variety VR has to offer. it's great to show those friends and family new to VR. there will be one game in here that they will like, The underwater Shark one is best for those that do not play games much or at all.

    Fun experience but lacking long term playability

    I was a little disappointed with the ocean decent game mode where you go diving with a shark. Very fun experience, but I wish the motion controllers would have been brought in more to interact with the game. The game has very limited time of each experience, and It’s the same each time taking away the surprise for any in the room that would also like to play. It’s a great game to play a few times, but it doesn’t have a lot to offer for replay. Overall the purchase was well worth the amount paid

    Playstation VR Worlds is a good sneak preview of what VR has to offer. You go from being a mobster, riding in a shark tank, all the way to becoming an alien and piloting a crawling mech with cannons. Most are very short experiences, less than an hour, which is the only thing holding back my score. You can probably get 5-6 hours out of this disc if you go for some of the challenges. That said, it feels like quality over quantity, as the mobster and shark tank in particular had me squirming in my chair. (in a good way) Overall, its definitely worth playing if you can get it on sale.

    Amazing. Was able to demo it at Best Buy. I left saying, " I need this in my life!" It's what I imagined VR would be, but expected to be disappointed by what it really was. Nope better than expected. One minute I was in Best Buy; the next I'm in a shark tank underwater being circled by an angry Great White. Amazing experience!

    This was a splurge game, to add to my collection, and must say that it is cool to see what the VR is able to do. Would love to be able to interact a bit more with the shark adventure. Luge experience - not one for you if you get motion sickness easy! London Heist is cool to see what is possible with the VR. Brick game - good little game, but you use your "head" to hit and direct the ball... don't recommend if you have any neck issues.

    The most challenging game in the set is the Head-powered pong variant, but all of it is a fun way to display the features of VR. Though most of them require action, the ocean diving experience is completely passive, and let's you look at the world surrounding you without having to do anything else. There's not much meat overall, save for the challenges, and, like I said, it's only a small taste of what you can expect from PSVR. But for what it is and its price, it's well worth it, if only to show it off to friends and guests.

    Every game is a little short. But they're awesome if you're new to VR. You're not going to get a ton of replay value out of this for certain games. Ocean's descent is probably only good for two playthroughs. But, I regularly play the heist one. If you're sensitive to 3D, you might want to ease into it: My depth perception was a little messed up after the first time I played this. You'll get just as much fun watching other people play. You'll also realize what an idiot you probably look like in that helmet flailing around,

    The London Heist

    I must admit, I only bought this game for the London Heist. I played it on the demo and was immediately a fan. The game is short, but very immersive. I have never had to take part in a shootout before, but after playing this I feel more experience. Joking aside, there are some cool games and experiences on this disc including a deep sea diving experience where you are surrounded by many type of sea creatures, including sharks. This is VR at its finest.

    Given the limited library of release titles, I picked this up for some variety. It was a great choice. It worked well to demonstrate the various capabilities of the PSVR in an enjoyable way. Some of the demos are "experiences" where you are essentially "inside" a movie (scripted with no interactivity) but most are interactive games using various aspects of the hardware (motion control of the headset, the move controllers, etc.). It is almost as much fun watching others play than to play myself.
