    It’s hardly revolutionary, but there’s something compelling about Lethal VR. Its guns pack a weighty punch, its challenges are broad and varied, and its scoring mechanic compels you to take just one more turn.

    It's one of those games VR needs. It's not an unforgettable experience and it doesn't take you to wonderful worlds, but it's a good arcade to have a great time with.

    Lethal VR is simple, but fun, just like going to a shooting range. We miss more variety in level design, but weapons are pretty realistic, and there are some interesting 007 easter eggs, such as the golden gun or Oddjob´s hat.

    There's some potential here, but the end result feels limited, lacking a story, content and the option to recalibrate. Shame.

    But for the last round in this mag’s Reviews chamber? This one’s hardly a magic bullet. [April 2016, p83]

    A bare bones blaster that runs out of steam. [Issue#183, p.75]
  7. It’s an astoundingly basic game.

    Short but fun!

    Its true there is not a lot of game here but what game you do get is fun to play. While the challenges themselves aren't overly difficult the challenge comes from trying to beat your score and rank higher up the table.

    Controls work well enough except for the knife throwing. It might have been me but I found throwing knives etc. at the extreme sides of the view to be a little off and took a lot of throws before hitting the target.

    If you get this on sale (like I did) then its bargain

    This game is a lot of fun. The fact that I have PS Move controllers makes this game a lot better. If you like shooting gallery games, thisThis game is a lot of fun. The fact that I have PS Move controllers makes this game a lot better. If you like shooting gallery games, this game is for you.

    The only problem I have is the length of the game as well as the throwing knife. When throwing the knife, it can "curve" when throwing from the side, which can be frustrating. The shooting is on point though.

    Definitely worth the $12!
