20. PSYCHONAUTS IN THE RHOMBUS OF RUIN

 

Psychonauts in the Rhombus of Ruin gives fans of the series the chance to jump back into the Psychonauts world in an even more immersive way. The story is interesting, if short, and the puzzles are engaging. It is of course, excellent for fans of the series but it is also worthwhile picking up if you have never played a Psychonauts game before.

19. DRIVECLUB VR

 

The standard version of Driveclub launched in a disastrous state but has become an excellent racer and one of the PlayStation 4's best exclusives. Thankfully, Driveclub VR brought everything that is good about the game over to Sony's virtual reality headset. There is a huge graphical downgrade and it is one of the biggest offenders when it comes to causing motion sickness but it shows how thrilling racing games can be in VR.

18. BATTLEZONE

 

Battlezone was often used as a demo to show of the strengths of PlayStation VR. The tank combat is excellent and matches immediately immersed you in the colourful arenas. Upgrades make the combat more complex but virtual reality newbies could easily get to grips with it. Were it not for some frustrating moments of difficult gameplay, Battlezone would be one of the best multiplayer games available.

17. WEREWOLVES WITHIN

 

Werewolves Within adapts the party game 'Werewolf' and makes it a social experience for PlayStation VR. Among a group of seven players is a werewolf and everyone has to deceive and deduct who it is. The social aspect works excellently, connection permitting, and it is easy to jump in and get competitive with other PSVR owners. It is one of the best multiplayer games available for the system.

16. EAGLE FLIGHT

 

Eagle Flight gives you more to do than most PlayStation VR titles. The structure is similar to other open-world Ubisoft titles and features collectibles, a variety of offline missions, and a competitive multiplayer. The game's version of Paris, taken over by nature, looks fantastic and is fun to explore and the flying gameplay is easy to master.

15. FARPOINT

 

Farpoint is the newest game on this list and the first AAA exclusive first person shooter. While it would be quite a basic game without VR, it introduced the excellent Aim Controller that has the potential to make many more first-person games more immersive. Seeing giant space spiders jump at your face can be terrifying but exploring the planet in VR is fantastic.

14. RIGS: MECHANIZED COMBAT LEAGUE

 

The online shooter was hugely enjoyable at launch and was an excellent showcase for the PlayStation VR. The gameplay was fast paced and thrilling but the experience was diminished by movement that could cause motion sickness and poor sales. Unfortunately, Guerrilla Cambridge was shuttered and we haven't heard anything about the game since.

13. TETHERED

 

Tethered is a 'god-game' that you wouldn't expect to be well suited to virtual reality. However, through its innovative and strategic gameplay, it proves that traditional games can be great experiences on the system. Just because it looks like it doesn't show off the perceived strengths of virtual reality, it doesn't mean Tethered isn't a game worth playing.

12. EVE: VALKYRIE

 

Flight Simulators are one the first game genres that come to mind when thinking about virtual reality and EVE: Valkyrie is one of the best. It looks more impressive on other virtual reality headsets but taking on the role of an elite fighter pilot is consistently thrilling. Controls are tight and large scale dogfights are great fun but the game is quite low on content considering it is a full-price title.

11. UNTIL DAWN: RUSH OF BLOOD

 

While Rush of Blood isn't a Until Dawn game in any way other than title and some iconography, it is one of PSVR's best first person titles. The frantic shooter gameplay is fun and works excellently with the move controllers. It can be terrifying and the rollercoaster moments can be thrilling. It is also one of the best games to show off the system off to people that haven't never experienced VR before.
