    Blood and Truth leaves the old glorified tech demos in the dust and realises VR’s full potential with an incredible blockbuster campaign that’s also a love letter to the city it’s made in.

    Blood & Truth absolutely nails VR with a high-octane ride through a cinematic story filled with action packed moments and some of the best gunplay we've seen on PSVR to date. If you own a PSVR setup, you need this game. For those that don't have the headset, now may be the time to make the jump.

    From the compelling and well-acted story to its engaging combat, SIE London Studios has delivered one of the best VR experiences on Sony’s platform. Like a hard-boiled blend of John Woo and any good London heist movie, Blood & Truth stands tall as one of the best PSVR games to date.

    Blood and Truth is a lot of fun, making use of a wide range of guns and all of the Move controller's capabilities.

    Blood & Truth is a perfect example of why virtual reality is still relevant in 2019. With fun run-and-gun gameplay, combined with some thrilling stealth action, the VR-title succeeds in immersing the player in an excellent spy adventure.

    Blood & Truth ends up being a strong title that adds more value to the PSVR platform. It may just be an evolution of the light gun game, but the immersion and action movie sensibilities coupled with a better-than-expected story for the genre does wonders as far as making it stand out among other VR titles. Provided you can handle the bouts of motion sickness, Blood & Truth is a VR game that's worth experiencing.

    Blood & Truth's story is about as gripping as trying to hold onto a bowling ball with greased up hands and its gameplay doesn't do much to make up for that. Add in a bunch of glitches and goofy moments and you're left with one disappointing VR experience.

I've never felt this good and badass playing a video game before. That Spider man meem from journos, "It really makes you feel like..." is actually true here, this really makes you feel like a soldier/Gansta/bad ass with a gun. Might just be my favourite VR game that doesn't have light sabers. This game is the Astro bot of the FPS genre and although it is on rails to a degree always feela like you are in control.

    Tracking is flawless. Control is tight and responimsive. Everything is top tier from the graphics to the sound design to VA to the level design and pacing. Near perfect on many fronts.
    Buy it, it's a must play.

    Unfortunately this great trip is over after only 5-6 hours. But I'll definitely go for a second run.

    Story is surprisingly good.

An over the top action shooter with some amazing set pieces and movie like action scenes. It's all handled so well by the dev team to keep motion sickness at bay. The voice work and acting is top of the range...film quality acting and stunning detail. The shooting feels good,the climbing and door picking mini games are not intrusive and the design of the game is about right. Aong with Astro Bot this is a must have game. Expand

    I’ll be honest, I didn’t know what this was until about a month ago. This past Christmas, when my brother and I asked for a PlayStation VR,I’ll be honest, I didn’t know what this was until about a month ago. This past Christmas, when my brother and I asked for a PlayStation VR, the main thing we wanted out of it was a bundle that had all the accessories we needed out of the box: the headset, the camera, and the two PlayStation Moves. And while certain game bundles seemed enticing, we weren’t picky about the particular games in the bundle, because it’s good to try new things (that, and the games we did want were cheap, so no sweat in that regard). “Blood & Truth” was one of the two games that came in the bundle (the other being “Everybody’s Golf VR,” which as a non-golfer didn’t really appeal to me), and instead of letting it sit around, I decided that I would give it a fair shake. Honestly, it was a pretty solid experience.
    “Blood & Truth” is an exhilarating title. The game slingshots you into the action early and often, with plenty of chase scenes and action set-pieces that make the game a pretty wild ride. The action is very well-executed, and there’s some very nice pace-breaking moments that actually can make doing mundane tasks pretty interesting. And while the revenge-thriller story is probably nothing you haven’t seen before, I do think it’s decently executed with some solid characterization and great settings. Graphically, this isn’t the best-looking PlayStation 4 game, and I’m sure corners had to be cut when making it VR, but while the models leave a bit to be desired, the game’s London setting is brilliantly-realized and stunningly beautiful. Also, this is just a minor thing, but the sound design and music selection is pretty strong, too. The music flows perfectly with the action, and maybe this is just me, but being thrown into shooting sequences while being backed by grime music was honestly amazing.
    I do have a few qualms with the game that really hold it back for me: for starters, like many PSVR games so far, the frustrating motion tracking can lead to a lot of imprecise aiming, to the point where a lot of the deaths in the game can feel rather unfair. Beyond that, I kinda got the feeling at several points that this game could’ve been totally fine if it wasn’t in VR, and I kinda struggled with understanding what made the use of the PSVR necessary here. Sure, it did keep me on my toes at points, and some of the character interactions scared me, but there were some points where I felt like I was just playing a rather standard FPS game, but I just happened to be wearing a giant headset while doing so.
    Also, this is something I want to mention as a point of contention, because I’m not sure if it’ll affect you as much as it did me: this is probably the most dizzying VR game that I’ve played up to this point. Usually, I can use a VR headset for a good amount of time without feeling any of the after-effects, but “Blood & Truth” was the exception. The game centers a lot around character movement, and there are plenty of times where your character will need to walk, climb, or even jump from high heights, while you as the player stand still and keep your feet planted. I know the game recommends you sit down, but the combat often feels easier when standing, even though the movement left me at times lightheaded and heavy in my legs. I’m kinda getting dizzy just thinking about it. That’s my forewarning: if playing a VR game where your character moves while you don’t makes you feel like you could get dizzy, this might not be the VR game for you.
    Even so, “Blood & Truth” is a nice FPS game that does make some clever use of the PlayStation VR’s technology. Sure, it’s rough around the edges, and there’s a chance the game could’ve worked completely fine if it wasn’t a VR game, but if you have a PSVR and are searching for a fun shooter that isn’t called “SUPERHOT VR,” or you want to see how the VR could handle story-focused games, “Blood & Truth” might be worth checking out. It won’t reinvent the wheel, but it’ll be fun while it lasts.

It completely lacks aim controller support which is its first an ultimate reason for being ****

    Secondly the games movement method is trash . Whomever thought of an approve the character movement should be fired its the dumbest setup I have came across yet for a VR game. All you do is move side to side an forward. I hated the movements an character controls so much I didn't even bother finishing the first level.

    I highly suggest you play the demo before purchasing, in my case this garbage came with my PSVR.
