    It’s a captivating experience full of enchanting adventure from start to finish. When people buy a headset with the idea of visiting strange, beautiful, and rich new worlds full of exciting things they can only do in VR, this is the type of game they’re imagining.

    Asgard's Wrath is one of the greatest titles produced since the birth of VR gaming, perhaps the most ambitious ever. Even its models are over the top - the last God of War is clearly quoted - but Sanzaru's game manages to build its strong personality with challenge and taste for discovery, using our double dimension - divine and terrestrial - to stage a VR show never seen before for graphical and playable details.

    Asgard’s Wrath is a fantastic action-adventure RPG that can stand with the best of them on consoles and PC, but the fact that it’s meticulously crafted for VR means it sits in a league of its own. Asgard’s Wrath represents something VR enthusiasts have been waiting for for years now: the first absolute must-play virtual reality game that feels fully fleshed-out rather than a glorified tech demo. Its beautiful world, excellent combat, great interface, and straightforward but detailed story come together to form something spectacular.

    At last, a real VR RPG, rich in content, with neat and detailed graphics, and which has nothing to be ashamed of when compared to the best non-VR AAA RPGs. We are dazzled by this epic journey, albeit the long loading times and poor collision management. Although they end up being repetitive, the dynamic battles require a true gratifying effort without triggering motion sickness. Asgard's Wrath has become the new reference for VR-RPG, and it would be shame to miss it.

    Powerful, violent and colossal, the work of Sanzaru Games is the perfect translation of the epic in VR format: an action gdr not to be missed by all owners of the Rift viewer, in which we will experience first hand the glory of the Norse myth, wrapped in a inextinguishable flow of wonder. And that's why Asgard's Wrath deserves to sit in the halls of Valhalla, where the greatest games ever made for virtual reality live.

    Asgard's Wrath may not offer the richest melee combat experience out there, but this epic Norse saga serves up a truly competent RPG that's not only strong in the visual department but is also packed with a full set of VR-native controls, something that's been so far missing in ported RPGs. There may be some wonkiness when it comes to object interaction, but the charming set pieces and excellent character design lend a level of immersion to this truly feature-length game that's hard to beat.

    Asgard’s Wrath is a competent, vast, visually stunning and challenging action RPG for VR. It could use some finetuning in terms of partner AI and the control options for looting, though.

    Although there are some edges to be smoothed, Asgard's Wrath is among the longest and most satisfying VR experiences you can live today with Oculus Rift.

    An impressively ambitious attempt to make a VR-only action game that is both a visual spectacle and a highly enjoyable role-player, full of imaginative ideas.

    VR Action RPG at its finest. One of the first games that gets sword play right in VR (parrying and blocking). It's not completely physicsVR Action RPG at its finest. One of the first games that gets sword play right in VR (parrying and blocking). It's not completely physics based combat (like B&S), but unlike the pure physics based games the sword play in Asgard's Wrath is challenging. The textures used are very detailed, just looking around and exploring the game world is fun! I'm only 7 hours in and I've only played a small fraction of the content. Asgard's Wrath offers a lot, but is it fun to play ? Heck ya it is ! I've been waiting years for a VR game like this, there's just so much quality here.

    TLDR - want a FUN high budget made for VR action RPG that promises 30+ hours of gameplay ? Then Asgard's Wrath is your game !

    Someone said in another review that if this was a flat game it would get a 6/10, well, I don't think so but the thing is this is NOT a flatSomeone said in another review that if this was a flat game it would get a 6/10, well, I don't think so but the thing is this is NOT a flat game, this is a VR game. The best I could describe it is God of War in VR, a game I played recently and really enjoyed. Which one do I prefer? Asgard's Wrath, without the slightest doubt. There is something unique about VR, about being in that world that flat just can't convey and that already makes it more special. Add to that some of the best graphics to date, lots of hours of gameplay, variety, good side missions, puzzles and an epic adventure and that's pretty much what Asgard's Wrath is. The first couple of hours are nothing but an expanded tutorial, nothing too special or mindblowing but after that the game just gets better and better and better all the time. All the playable characters are great, level design is superb and there is a lot of love and attention to detail in every part of the game. Overhyped games rarely live up to that hype but in the case of AW it does. It has the quality, it has the content and it certainly has the price. One could always look for some minor flaws here and there, like in every other game but overall AW is a fantastic game that has instantly become one of VR's best offerings, comparable to any 2D game in quality and content.
