    In the end Arizona Sunshine is a good start to the VR realm… we can only hope that this is the start of some kind of ongoing franchise, because to me the game was a little on the short side. It’s a A hell of a nice thrill ride, but oh so short and if the designers’ goal was leaving us wanting more… then they did it.

    I had a lot of fun with Arizona Sunshine with a superb single player experience. I wish the multiplayer modes were more stable, because playing with friends was a blast.

    Probably the first title for VR that a player can enjoy from start to finish.

    A lot of small changes to the VR shooter formula add up to more than the sum of their parts, delivering an enjoyable experience somewhat let down by overly fussy controls and a lack of variety. You'll forget all the sleepy towns along the way but you’ll remember the protagonist, you’ll remember Fred and you’ll remember the ending. [Tested with Oculus Rift with Oculus Touch]

    Arizona Sunshine brings clear blue skies and a breath of fresh air to the zombie genre, and while it’s not a revolution, the game shows there’s still a little life left in blasting an undead horde into a splattery mess.

I felt very uncomfortable at certain places in the game (like the one dark room in the mine). Only the zombie waves are kind of obvious and repetitive, I don't like that kind of obvious pressure building and scares, more subtle works best for me. Anyway, love it. Expand

The models are pretty poor, the zombie animations are very repetitive (for example when you aim at them, they stumble to the side, and it happens A LOT), and the environment objects all look the same (cars, furnitures, fences, ...).

    The zombie theme is pretty useless, it doesn't feel like a zombie apocalypse, more like a shooting range. You always can teleport yourself out of danger, so if you see a zombie running toward you, you can simply teleport a few meters away immediately, the zombie continuing his course to his doom. You never feel pressured, anxious, lost, afraid. It's even the contrary. Because it's difficult to aim at long range, it's often a good idea to just teleport just next to the enemies to put a bullet in their head, then teleport to the next, and so on.

    There's a lot of frustration coming with the world interactivity. Being in VR, I wanted to interact with everything, throw objects, try swinging, turning stuff, but there are actually a lot of grounded objects you cannot interact with. And when you find something that looks suitable for a melee weapon, like a shovel or an axe, don't even bother trying swinging it to the face of the zombies, it doesn't work. the weapon goes right through the body, and you look like an idiot in the process. Just throw the weapon, dealing approximately no damage (if you managed to hit the enemy), and unsheathe your shotgun.

    This game might get some attention today, but in a few years, I'm sure there'll be a lot of better games with better mechanics and level design.
