    CastleStorm VR is not a necessary VR release, but it is a fun one, showing the possibilities for traditionally non-VR titles on the platform. Head tracking works well, and playing the game feels like you are playing with a physical medieval play set.

    The virtual reality in CastleStorm VR does not add much to the original game’s formula that still remains as exciting as it was four years ago.

    CastleStorm is a fun game to play either online or against AI and that experience alone is worth the price. However, it shouldn't be blindly purchased just because it has "VR" added to the title.

    CastleStorm VR is a relatively enjoyable game with an addictive loop, and it’s easy to lose hours to it. While I wish more was done on the VR side, it’s a solid addition to the game. It doesn’t do much to improve the lackluster story or repetitive gameplay, however. Addictive or not, some variety would not hurt at all.

    The game's complicated control scheme takes a little getting used to, and adjusting the arc of the ballista's shots can be frustrating at times. The game likes to turn small stick movements into large changes in trajectory, which is a problem when you need to precisely place your shots to bring down a retaining wall or an enemy knight. I didn't have this issue when playing the original game, so I don't know how or why it made its way into the VR version. Overall, I enjoy the game's presentation, the cool 3D feel to its playing field, and its quirky mash-up of genres, but I have to dock the VR version points for its finicky controls.

    I really like CastleStorm, and I’m so pleased with what Zen Studios has done to make the VR version of it a meaningful upgrade.

    CastleStorm Definitive Edition is a fun game, but playing it in VR is something I cannot recommend. If you already have the original release, then you are gaining nothing with the VR version. This feels more like it could have been added to the original release as DLC rather than being it's own download. If you are really hurting for more VR games in your life, this might fill some kind of void, but there are much better offerings than this.
