Feb 8, 2018Overall, Sairento VR is a solid VR game, it may not have the polish of some AAA VR titles but that’s to be expected as Mixed Realms are a tiny indie studio which is probably why bugs have slipped through the net. This is a game that will challenge your VR skills, the weapons respond well and the movement is excellent which is a huge plus in VR. Despite its flaws, Sairento VR is definitely worth checking out if you’re looking for some fast-paced VR action.
Feb 7, 2018Sairento VR is a game with a ton of stuff to do and some really fun core gameplay elements, but it just doesn’t feel like it all comes together well in the end. There’s a lack of meaningful depth, some glaring repetition, and a general lack of polish that holds this action-packed romp from truly achieving VR greatness.
Feb 5, 2018I wasn’t expecting to have a good time playing Sairento VR because of all the movement, but once I’d gotten used to it I really enjoyed the over the top action. Even though it was just because of the ease of slaughtering enemies mindlessly, doing so in VR really helped with its appeal. It’s by no means perfect, with some structural and technical issues getting in the way of the fun, but from a small studio making a relatively ambitious VR title, they could have done a whole lot worse.

Feb 6, 2018Not only is this my favorite game to play in VR... but Mixed Realms Studio should be recognized as most inspiring and cutting edge developersNot only is this my favorite game to play in VR... but Mixed Realms Studio should be recognized as most inspiring and cutting edge developers of the year. I would say I am a fan, but that would sell short how I really feel... like family. Virtual Reality is really just beginning to scratch the surface of how we can game together so everyone is a pioneer at the time in VR life... so for these awesome men and women to not only take a plunge into the unknown of VR, but to make this game on their first full attempt at a AAA Title is mind boggling. The jump system, the slow motion, the running on walls, the sounds, visuals, and immersion are letting you experience a world of danger and excitement without any danger. To think this is only their FIRST attempt at this, is almost unreal. It might seem I'm talking more about the team at Mixed Realms than the actual game, but that only because I want to relay what you really get with this game. You get a small independent team with less resources, less (wo)man power, and yet no shortage of heart or listening. Making for a HUGE team. They have told everyone they are still going to tweak small things and add content here and there to the now finished version of the game... and we have no reason to see them not fulfill those intentions after everything they did with the gamers in Early Access.
For me and my family at VR Playland they delivered an amazing experience and if you missed out on the early access of Sairento, no worries. Play it now and if you enjoy it we suggest you definitely join any future rides the Mixed Realm family decides to make into the journey of Virtual Reality. Thank you guys and gals truly for your hard work, dedication, unbridled respect, and the most incredible Ninja experience ever had for loving hearts who don't want to be ACTUAL Ninja Assassins :P… Full Review »
Feb 7, 2017for an early access game on steam, this VR title throws a lot of heavy punches! i thought the locomotion (jumps, dashes and double jumps)for an early access game on steam, this VR title throws a lot of heavy punches! i thought the locomotion (jumps, dashes and double jumps) would turn me into a walking vomit blender within seconds but surprisingly, it didn't. in fact, i enjoyed it so much that if only i could, i would practically jump about all throughout the game if not for the 'focus' recharge. that's saying a lot considering my motion sickness is towards the really bad side; i can't even look at my phone while in a moving car.
the double jump feature and movie-like slowmo mechanics are executed beautifully and really throw me into a badass, gun-slinging, katana-yielding ninja mode. the visual concept is very interesting and quite unique (mix of futuristic and traditional japanese elements) but i think the overall graphics can be better in terms of lighting and effects. it would also be great if players can see the main character, maybe at the main menu in the dojo?
having said that, i'm definitely looking forward to the full launch because the devs are promising some pretty awesome updates and are quite responsive to feedback and comments from the community. my favorite vr game as of the moment!… Full Review »
