    Headmaster is so much more than what it might appear to be, and it’s one of the biggest surprises for me coming out of the PlayStation VR’s launch. It’s creative, funny, and provides a perfect example of what VR could bring to the table, while also being far more than just a VR tech demo.

    Headmaster is an easy-to-recommend, addictive and fun little game that is a worthy addition to any PSVR library.

    No matter whether you’re a football fan or not, Headmaster‘s original gameplay is simple yet utterly addictive, and no minor frustrations can do much to take the shine off of it.

    Headmaster is silly, repetitive and simplistic. It’s also possibly the most fun you can have with your PSVR headset, at least in short bursts. A party game that anyone can play, it takes a chance that the core concept is strong enough and pulls it off.

    The concept is simple and motivating, while the technical execution is solid and delivers accurate head tracking. Unfortunately there can be a bug that can keep you from moving to the next level. Pity.

    Headmaster is a solid experience for testing out the PS VR’s functionality but at its core, the mechanic isn’t sustainable.

    If you love playing football you will not only love Headmaster but appreciate just how accurate a recreation of heading it captures. It takesIf you love playing football you will not only love Headmaster but appreciate just how accurate a recreation of heading it captures. It takes that skill and throws you into a dark humoured carnival of mini games which get progressively harder prolonging longevity. A clear and fair points system rewards skill and patience whilst promoting competition among friends. The perfect party or solo launch game for PSVR. The technology creates all of the atmosphere and illusion that you are alone, on a full size pitch heading real balls into a full size goal. It is so accurate that mistakes always feel a fault of the player and never the game. Perfect use of VR and a cracking launch title. Expand

    I actually am not a sports person in any way but a friend showed me Headmaster and it was not only hilarious but super fun to play. TheI actually am not a sports person in any way but a friend showed me Headmaster and it was not only hilarious but super fun to play. The action of heading the ball takes a little getting used to if you've never played soccer (I have not) but it gets very addictive to see what the next insane level is. We stayed up way too late advancing further into the game and the story gets BONKERS. Highly recommended from this non-sports gamer. Expand

    You bounce soccer balls off your head across dozens of different scenarios, and a clever, mysterious narrative ties the whole packageYou bounce soccer balls off your head across dozens of different scenarios, and a clever, mysterious narrative ties the whole package together. Also features trade-off multiplayer options for party play. One of the PSVR's sleeper hits. Expand
