    It’s great fun, the refined and challenging shooting mechanics and enormous assortment of gun configurations proving highly entertaining.

    Blasters of the Universe asks you to weave your head through a barrage of bullets. It works great on a technical level and the gun customisation is a strong point, but at only four levels it's over too quickly and despite being 'bullet hell' it doesn't feel too different to what you've probably played already.

    Blasters of the Universe is an absolute blast to play with silky smooth motion control and headset tracking that allows for precise shots to be pulled off with ease. The 80s cartoon style visuals, combined with the trance music, create a charmingly frantic environment for a bullet hell shooter to be set. Although its runtime is short lived, the quality of its gameplay makes Blasters of the Universe a very worthwhile venture.

    Don't let the look of it fool you this is not a gallery shooter, it's on par with games like NexMachina and the top tier bullet hell games butDon't let the look of it fool you this is not a gallery shooter, it's on par with games like NexMachina and the top tier bullet hell games but it's in VR. I think it might be the best tracking currently on PSVR, litterally no issue even when positioning the moves over the the headset. It's a standing game and fairly active so that should be taken into account, it got sweaty for me and had to pause and my face a few times but the was easily over ridden by a desire to keep playing. Weapon modding is a thing too and from the looks of it every aspect of the, i think 7 guns, can be mixed and matched with a **** ton of different ammo, mods, aiming devices and sheilds. The "production value" is incredible, can't believe this released at the price it did, everything feels solid AF and the graphics and 3d effect are top tier. It'll largely come down to whether or not you're willing to do the standing and weaving which can get really hectic even on casual. EDIT after 8-10 hours of gameplay: This has topped rush of blood and any other game of these genres in VR, perhaps even outside of VR, I haven't had this much pure clean fun in a game in years. Absolutely the most under rated game to release this year. Full Review »

    A bullet hell completely perfect for VR. Amazing graphics, perfect immersion and spetacular gameplay and replayability.

    Unique and very well made. When I heard it was essentially a VR bullet hell I turned it down immediately but after finally playing it I amUnique and very well made. When I heard it was essentially a VR bullet hell I turned it down immediately but after finally playing it I am upset that I didn't earlier. Dodging and shooting in a 80's sci-fi aesthetic complete with a great soundtrack has been a blast. On the technical side I had no issues with the game at all. I played the game to completion and am currently replaying it. Full Review »
