ESH | Moss Review

Vir­tual real­ity has often been used to insert play­ers into sit­u­a­tions that would oth­er­wise be impos­si­ble. Moss, one of the newest PlaySta­tion VR titles, goes about this in a slightly dif­fer­ent way. Instead of mak­ing the player the focus, each stage of the game is a sort of inter­ac­tive dio­rama. Con­trol­ling the adorable mouse pro­tag­o­nist Quill, play­ers can make their way envi­ron­men­tal puz­zles by inspect­ing every nook and cranny of the tiny world set in front of them. It cre­ates an expe­ri­ence that feel unique to VR and facil­i­tates a new sort of immer­sion that is the breath of fresh air that VR needs right now.

ESH | Blasters of the Universe Review

Insert­ing one­self into the action of a video game is what makes vir­tual real­ity such an immer­sive expe­ri­ence. Bul­let hell games are scary enough as it is, tak­ing place on a 2D plane while tons of bul­lets head towards a tiny ship. Thrust­ing this con­cept into the first-person per­spec­tive of a VR shooter, Blasters of the Uni­verse takes the brain-busting space man­age­ment of a bul­let hell game and forces you to stare help­lessly as the sea of bul­lets slowly drift towards you. One of the smoother-controlling shoot­ers I’ve played in PSVR, while rel­a­tively short, it offers plenty of chal­lenge that will have you com­ing back for more.
