      $20 value

      I've had this game since launch and the current price drop to 20 is extremely good value. It is the game I keep coming back to play for psvr. The T Flight Hotas 4 controls for it are awesome! The game had a rough launch with server issues and it was patched. The single player game Burn Circuit is worth the price. For players that wish to play multiplayer it is important to join the ps4 and discord communities, and add players via friend request on ps4. Weds nights, and Sun afternoon are best times to find random games...but to game daily, and hourly its best to know the regular players since the psvr community is still small and spread out over several games, AND time zones!!! This game is a complete blast to play, once you understand all the controls (and there is a lot of them), it is definitely Overwatch meets Descent for psvr and it runs so smooth. For me, its def a top 5 psvr game right now, despite its rough launch issues that have been fixed. Read updated review at thevrgrid for another opinion. But I cannot stress enough how fun this game is once you learn it, and chat with its community. Maybe the coolest player base I have ever chatted with on-line.

      Very addictive VR shooter

      This game is very fun. It's been said this is the Overwatch of VR games. I don't know about that but I do know that it's a lot of fun and hard to put down. The spacecraft you're in can move in ALL directions. Once you've gotten use to the controls and weapons systems it's game on from there. The meat and potatoes of this game are definitely in it's multiplayer mode and if you're having difficulty finding a match through the server, it's recommended that you join Starblood Arena online communities and go from there. The single player challenges are fun too and one should master those to get you're experience racked up and they do get very challenging. One more thing. It seems that VR motion sickness is something the developers kept in mind and found a way to make it pretty much non existent in this game. I've played for hours straight without a single hint of motion sickness. If you have PSVR, you need this game. And it's pretty cheap considering how much fun you'll get out of it!!

      Multiplayer Works On Wednesdays!

      If you go to the PSVR reddit forum you will see the dev community manager is hard at work carving out play nights on Wednesdays at 6PM PT. The game is much more simple and fun than Eve Valkyrie for me since the maps are much more close quarters. It's sort of like Overwatch/COD in ships since there are a lot of unlockables and each character plays pretty differently. I wish there were more players in multiplayer though since when you get into a 4vs4 on Wednesday nights the game can get pretty crazy! There is some decent single player via Burn Circuits which is similar to playing Twisted Metal in VR since it's just sort of a battle royale in map versus the AI. I wouldn't say it's that easy though since you have 1 be #1 to be able to beat each burn circuit level and I believe there are 8 of them. 4 "easier" ones and 4 "harder" ones.

      Hybrid throwback to my youth

      VR? Check. Descent-style 360-degree spherical gameplay? Check. Bright, colorful flashing things? Check. Single player (so I don't have to pop immediately online and get stomped)? Check. A great overall VR experience on PSVR. Only slightly-cringeworthy element of this game is a couple of the pilot designs (Looking at you, blue guy). Make sure to give yourself some time to get your VR legs on this one. You'll be tumbling, turning, rolling, and moving at a pretty good clip, and if you're not used to it this experience can be a little rough. It's worth the effort to get used to it, though.

      The title says it all. The game is legimately fun, colorful, easy to pick up and play, the only down side is that there are hardly any players online. Yes, there is still other game modes that you can play, but I can't help but to agree with the idea that this was meant to be played online with a lot of people. I don't regret buying it, I did get it on sale, but I wish there were more players. (Have I mentioned that enough?)

      I really enjoy this game; the graphics are great, movement is good with little to no motion sickness and tons of unlockabkes. It's a mixture of descent and RIGS though I feel it has more character. Unfortunately it can be a challenge to find players online (though you can compete with bots) which is a shame since I feel the developers put their heart into this (they even play online on wednesdays). It's a steal for $20

      Lack of Players online

      Game is great. But it is a multiplayer game first and foremost... and without people online to play with, this game is dead.... I hope more people buy this game so we can have some matches online, the only games we have been able to find lately are with a crew in a party, that's about it. Also, check out KORIX... it is a great PSVR game too, but we need more players online to enjoy fully.

      I searched for a while before getting this over Eve, primarily because people had said it had a better single player experience than the Eve game. It's a reasonably fun game, and while I didn't get motion sickness, I did start to feel a little off after ~30 minutes of play. Otherwise very fun.
