Budget Cuts looks great, plays amazingly, is well designed and a lot of fun. Barring too much time spent in load screens, I loved every second of it. It gives you the various tools you need to succeed but leaves you free to explore and work your way through the game how you wish. If you have a PSVR headset then give it a go, its a brilliant game.
Budget Cuts is a game very well optimized in terms of resources, approach and execution. Its fantastic implementation makes it affordable for gamers struggling with virtual reality. Teleportation movement prevents dizziness, but also integrates fresh and brilliantly into the gameplay itself. Budget Cuts is one of those titles that justifies virtual reality and helps establish the place it deserves.
Budget Cuts surprised me in more ways than I expected – and to clarify, that’s good and bad. What I thought was going to be a fun homage to the likes of Job Simulator turned out to be a game that, more than it had any right to, made me feel like I was in ‘The Matrix.’ It’s easy to feel like a badass when you glide through a room and eliminate all threats without breaking a sweat. But, it’s also easy to get caught up in aggravating tracking issues that you won’t find on top-of-the-line VR headsets. If you can play Budget Cuts on your PC, do so. But if your only option is the PSVR, you aren’t entirely left out in the cold.
Budget Cuts remains a sometimes frustrating, but worthwhile delight to play. It’s one of the finest things available on PSVR right now, and those toting Sony’s headset should add it to their collections. Blending stealth, action, and deep immersion, Budget Cuts remains one of the best examples of “proper games” on VR.
