    Eagle Flight is quite simply, one of the most joyous experiences you can have in gaming and an utterly essential PSVR title.

    After the relatively disappointing launch titles for the PlayStation VR, there are a few games that will make you appreciate this new medium and thankfully one of those games is Eagle Flight. In the end, it successfully creates one of the best immersive experiences with its sturdy controls and beautiful graphics plus enjoyable gameplay. Recommended!

    Great controls make Eagle Flight an absolute blast to play, both in single and multiplayer format. The content on offer is rather limited, though.

    Eagle Flight is pretty much everything we want from a VR game. A fun concept with a great gameplay and no motion sickness. The only real drawback is the very light content for a 40€ game.

    The concept and delivery deserve praise. [Jan 2016, p.115]

    Eagle Flight is certainly not one of the best experiences available for PSVR, but it is one of the most peculiar. The control system, the sense of speed, the exhilaration of the flight and the style of production manages to create an interesting mix.
  7. Like so many other early virtual reality games, Eagle Flight feels less like a game and more like an experiment that was polished up and given a price tag. It’s a fun experiment worth experiencing, but it’s not worth $60.

I would also classify it as the title that could persuade PS4 owners who are on the fence, and are waiting for that one worthwhile title to purchase the PSVR headset. There's a definite thrill in maneuvering through tight spaces at high speeds that just doesn't wear off, and collecting all 3 stars per level, plus some free flying that you'll want to do in between, will net you around 7 hours of single player campaigning at least. Factor in the multiplayer, and the game is extended further. Seeing the 'faux' paris under different weather conditions as the story progresses is a treat. The music design suits the game perfectly. There are a couple of drawbacks, the main ones being Ubisoft cut back on the immersion in 2 ways. They seem to have dialed down the stereoscopic effect in the open areas of paris, and dial it back up a little when in tighter spaces. This is significant, and means the game won't sell you on the immersion side of VR. The other is more subtle and doesn't bother me one bit: Ubisoft reduced the FOV by adding an eagles beak and part of the face at the bottom of your vision, and some feathers at the top (you're literally looking through the eyes of an eagle) and further reduce the FOV when pulling off tight turns by blacking out the edge of the screen. You may know of this effect already, but in truth, you're too busy looking in the direction you're flying most of the time to even notice it, and the thrills mentioned above without ever feeling any discomfort much more than make up for it.

    It's not just about Eagle Flight , it's more about PSVR at all, so sorry for that. Well, I check Metacritic since years ( along withIt's not just about Eagle Flight , it's more about PSVR at all, so sorry for that. Well, I check Metacritic since years ( along with Gamerankings , IGN & Gamespot ) whenever I doubt about buying or Not buying a game... but this is the first time I write a comment in here. Dear Gamers worldwide : if you think about buying a PSVR game then this one is ABSOLUTELY one of the best out there. Graphic are like a cheap cartoon indeed but the gameplay is really ok. You know, PSVR is now where PC gaming was in the beginning of the 90's... we had id's DOOM thanks to Carmack & Romero and then they gave us QUAKE !
    It's ALL about resolution. In the 90's we came from 320x240 to 640x480 , 800x600 , 1024x768 etc.... now we have 1920x1080 as a standard and 4K is just behind the Doors. What I try to say is : if you don't have enough money to spend just on gaming ,I would wait , PSVR is very ok if you can afford it WITHOUT Great expectations, Oculus Rift & HTC Vive , they both have much much much better resolution but both of them are much much much more expensive than PSVR :-). Besides ,to use them you need a veeery strong PC - i7 , 16 GB mem , GeForce 980 as minimum and still you can stumble upon Some configuration issues... so ,as they all just start with Virtual Reality , PSVR is the cheapjest one & Really Plug & Play. That's all my fellow gamers, I hope I was in state to help somebody with his dillema in this matter knowing that reviews in here Helped me to make my choices since many years.
    P.S. I'm not a PS fanatic :-) I have PS , Xbox & Wii. ( next to PC ofcourse :-) PS Vita & Apple stuff as well, as I've said, I am an OLD gamer...
    One more thing. If you wear glasses like I do , bare in mind that you will have an additional issues with PSVR headset to get a FAIR viewing angle ! I don't know it about Oculus & Vive cause I don't owe them yet.

Just wish you could take the tunnel vision off. They have done this to stop people getting motion sick, however I have no problems this way in VR, so would just like the option there in the options menu for people like me, who can handle it, to get a full screen view (like Windlands and Rigs do).

MyI may be in the minority here, as I've got a tough stomach and HATE fov narrowing, but it just utterly ruins the experience here for me. My biggest want for VR going forward is greatly INCREASED field of view, so it's maddening when devs intentionally narrow your vision to the size of a pinhole. Okay, that's exaggerating, but every time you turn your head, the field of view greatly reduces, perhaps by 40 or 50%. For me, this really takes me out of the experience and reinforces the already mildly present "horse-blinder effect" on psvr. It absolutely destroys all realism for me.

    Now I completely understand why Ubisoft had to add this - vr makes a lot of people sick, and this is one solution to it for fast moving games (though this game isn't all THAT fast). So it should ABSOLUTELY be included, and even be on by default, so the people who get sick don't stir up bad press. What's not excusable is not including turning it off as an option. Rigs did this right - they included the fov narrowing, but gave you an option in the menus to turn it off.

    Honestly it's so bad I can't get past the first chapter of the game. I keep trying and trying and it just breaks my heart. Worst experience on psvr so far.
