    Overall, Battlezone is an excellent reboot for this long-suffering franchise. No modernization of the original concept has worked nearly as well as this does, and it is a perfect showcase for VR technology.

    Battlezone is a tough, fun and addictive tank warfare game in its own right that throws down a gauntlet to teams of players and challenges them to really work together to succeed.

    The tank mayhem is a worthy heir to the arcade classic. Simple at first, complexity is added by upgrades and slight tactical decisions. And furthermore it is a prime example for the usage of VR, when you get totally immersed in the colorful world. Unfortunately the AI is not with the name, while the difficulty spikes due to sheer numbers can become frustrating.

    Virtual reality is an apt home for Battlezone's class of tank busting pandemonium. Appropriating its arcade doctrine, filtering it through 36 years, and then projecting it as a full-priced product may have been a reach. As an experience, Battlezone VR is neatly matched to its hardware. As a game, however, it doesn't (yet) have quite enough firepower to oppose any presumed opposition.

    Battlezone VR is a nice reboot for an arcade classic from the Eighties. But you have to play it with other friends, single player campaign gets boring after few missions.

    The fast and hectic gameplay is fairly pleasant, but the presence of a single mode, monotonous and with some balancing problem, limits the appeal of the game.

    These glimmers of entertainment, however, are not frequent enough to make up for the number of times I’m left shaking my head at another “Failure” screen, wondering exactly what the hell just happened.

    Fantastic game, particularly since updates. There’s plenty of depth, longevity. I keep returning to it, because of the great multiplayer. CanFantastic game, particularly since updates. There’s plenty of depth, longevity. I keep returning to it, because of the great multiplayer. Can either enjoy playing through maps on easy mode (still challenging but forgiving and easy if you have other players as you can heal each other) or have a sweaty challenge on one of the harder modes. If you have psvr, it’s an essential. The demo disc version does not do it justice at all! Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Easily the best PSVR game available at launch. Haven't experienced any issues with motion sickness so far either.

    First, no motion sickness. At all. It's a seated game you spend in the cockpit of a futuristic tank. This game will not make you sick.First, no motion sickness. At all. It's a seated game you spend in the cockpit of a futuristic tank. This game will not make you sick.

    Second, this game is immersive as **** Probably one of the most immersive VR cockpit games on the PSVR, Oculus and Vive. You really feel like you're piloting a dangerous prototype war machine, not playing a video game with a silly headset on.

    Third, the gameplay is fun, fast-paced, rewards strategy, and has a lot of unlockables to keep things fun. This isn't a game you play once, beat, and put down. It's a roguelite. They're all about replayability. It's definitely worth the money.

Another stand out title who's price is justified because it is a VR game. It's fun and well developed, but was it a regular PS4 game it would be too expensive. But, we need to accept that not all VR games will work for all people due to motion issues, or at the very least people may need to expect only short play sessions initially. It's another stand out launch title for the PSVR platform - but just be aware that may not mean the same as for PS4 in general, and it will come at a cost (small market still, after all). Expand
