    Despite some minor gripes, its clear that Apex Construct represents the way forward for VR videogames, an absorbing, intriguing experience that draws you in with a rich world complete with is own history and mysteries to be unravelled as well as a fluid combat system. Apex Construct is the standard by which future VR titles will be judged, and an indicator that VR has stepped up its game.

    One of the best action adventure games out there designed specifically for VR systems. Simple but well implemented game mechanics, nice graphics and an interesting background story all conform in one of the best PSVR games available.

    Apex Construct is neither long nor perfect, but it's an intriguing and immersive adventure. The controls sometimes work against you, the pacing can slow down a bit too much, and the story isn't as surprising as it could be. What's left is a very good bow-and-arrow shooter with some excellent environmental storytelling and atmosphere that pulls you through from start to finish. After a few updates and quality of life improvements almost a year after its original release, Apex Construct is certainly a well-made experience on PSVR that will satisfy everyone in need of an original adventure built with VR in mind.

    Apex Construct has a few too many niggling issues to be considered truly great but still remains a VR adventure you should absolutely undertake. It’s a rare chance to jump into an expansive journey and become a part of an engrossing world, warts and all. It proves that VR developers can now deliver the adventures we dreamed of having when we first picked up our headsets. The next step is to refine them enough to keep us believing we’re really there. For now, though, Apex Construct will do just fine.

    Monotony and lack of personality. Those are the only two problems that we have found in Apex Construct. If you can rise above them, you are going to find a really nice VR experience. A fascinating story, with a world plenty of secrets and details about itself, and fun action levels that are energetic and dynamic. You should give Apex Construct a chance.

    Apex Construct could have been a very good VR game. Unfortunately some technical and design issues make it not so memorable.

    Getting killed because of unwieldy controls is nobody’s idea of a good time, and Apex Construct rubs salt into those wounds by removing un-banked experience points every time you die. Although not all bad, its sense of adventure and investigation is marred by eternally clumsy motion and combat.

    Apex Construct is one of the rare games on PSVR that feels like a real game and not a demo or a gimmick. The story and storytelling is goodApex Construct is one of the rare games on PSVR that feels like a real game and not a demo or a gimmick. The story and storytelling is good with real nice voice acting. The environments are beautiful, and if you're lucky enough to know Swedish you'll have a couple of extra laughs over things found written here and there, as well as a nice feeling of being home in this warped post apocalypse like version of Stockholm. The controls works nicely, and I was glad to find you can change settings to drawing your bow with left hand. Shooting the bow, dodging and blocking attacks with a shield feels pretty cool. I'm super prone to motion sickness in VR but have had no problems in Apex Construct because of the teleport mode of transportation. There are elevator trips that make me queasy, but they're short so I just close my eyes for a couple of seconds.

    A lot of input in the game is typed on large virtual keyboards, and that's a bit of a pain since you write the same thing over and over. Very quickly I wondered why there couldn't just have been an "open" button to press instead of having to type it repeatedly. Also the terminals where you type this have a small font, and whenever I leaned closer to read it the game auto adjusted its position so the terminal popped away from me and I had to bend over double to squint at it at a distance. All the information is however stored and readable in your home base, and there the font is large and easy to read. I could not find any subtitles for the game which is kind of a bummer, maybe there will be in a later patch.

    The game feels intuitive, immersive and engaging. Is it the best game ever made? No, it's not. But considering what's available on PSVR right now it is without a doubt among the best PSVR games.

There'sThis is probably the only full action-adventure title made for VR - complete with free exploration, archery combat and a story. There's enough polish and substance here that it wouldn't feel out of place as a game on flat screen and plenty of comfort settings that may be turned off, in-game turning and handedness options. Also one of the coolest inventory menus ever, where any key items may be placed on your portable **** inventory for later retrieval. Combat begins slow, but progressively harder against a host or robotic creatures roaming reasonably sized maps in a contorted futuristic landscape. Story unfolds by the voices of AI and memos found scattered in terminals. Many people seem to have had major problems typing at the terminals - but while awkward and typo-prone, I didn't find it such a major issue. Level layouts offer plenty of chance for the inquiring kind of player to explore. So far, one of the best surprises of the year in VR. Expand

Great narrative, voice acting andOne of the best VR games to date, Sprint vector and this is the best combo for VR gaming at the moment. Great narrative, voice acting and puzzle mechanics as well as small details like using commands on computers which ads to an immersive feel. Free locomotion works great in the same way skyrim does.The combat is pretty simple with just a variants of the bow but can become quite tough, certainly no coded hand holding. The aims work great with little to no tracking issues. And the graphics, oh man are they beautiful even on a standard PS4, very impressed indeed. This is a fully fleshed out game on par with a AAA full price, yet we get it at one third the price. The only con I have so far is the screen blacks out if you clip into things , it can be a bit annoying. Expand
