Blood & Truth Review – Man On A Mission

This PSVR title has the guns and the English accent, but it's not enough to make the game more than a basic on-rails shooter.

Farpoint Review – Shooting For The Moon

This competent shooter sews together a few VR thrills and benefits from the Aim controller, but the linear design feels dated by comparison to contemporary shooters.
