Oct 8, 2018It’s unlikely to leave as much of an impact as Farpoint did, but Evasion offers a competent and entertaining shoot ‘em up campaign for those looking to bring devastation to the next alien race. Alongside a horde mode that’ll have you coming back for more, this is one experience that PlayStation VR fanatics won’t want to miss.

Another game that finally takes advantage of the Aim Controller and it does it in pretty good fashion. The game uses the Unreal Engine and truth be told, it is definitely has some of the best graphics of the VR to date. Most specifically, the weapons and the enemies.
People who were calling it another Farpoint prior to release weren't correct, but they weren't wrong either. The gun play is....a bit stiff. I felt like in Farpoint it was a bit more loose and aiming was a bit easier. However, I will give Evasion the benefit of the doubt in terms of gun mechanics because there is more to it than simply shotgun, pistol, rifle. The guns have charging and tethering mechanisms.
The tether addition is honestly pretty brilliant and allows you to pick how you wish to attack your enemies and retrieve power ups, not to mention all the other things it does as well such as finish off enemies, heal, and revive fallen allies.
Rather than simply have a shooter, the game comes equipped with 4 different classes allowing you various ways to go about, however, in the grand scheme of things, they pretty much all operate the same way. All their weapons are different, but similar in structure and action.
Oh and for any Portal fans out there, the AI companion in this game is bitterly sarcastic and cold much like GLaDOs, in a pretty funny way though (at least in the tutorial).
The real reason I have this game docked a bit low is 1. A short campaign - yes I get this a constant with other VR games as well, however, the VR is now 2 years old. Longer campaigns shouldn't be so hard anymore. 2. Barebones game-play - everything is a bit too straight forward and ones outside of the campaign, there isn't too much to do besides horde mode.
If you are going to play this game, make sure you try to find a buddy because that's where this game really takes off.
I may write another review in the future. Hopefully once some more people start playing and there may be an increase in player count. But for now, I'll give it a 7 since I can't give it a 7.5.… Full Review »

It is slightly better than Farpoint imo and worth playing but not something you will likely play for a long time. However, at the right price it is worth picking up and checking out. Aim support is great and there just aren't that many games that are decent that use it.… Full Review »

I did not have a chance to play this co-op, which may change the game experience.
Nice textures, pretty surroundings
Able to play with aim controller
Didn't make me feel sick, even with safeties removed
Interesting tether mechanic
Weapon usage felt good
No character or weapon development
Only four weapons, each locked to a class only selectable at the beginning of level
Nearly non-existent plot
Repetitive, linear missions
Boring voice acting
Dull, clunky enemies
Limited controls (most buttons do nothing, no jump, no reload)
This just felt like a demo of vr you would find in an arcade. It's not the serious game I'd hoped it would be. I would recommend not buying it unless it were on a decent discount. It's the first vr game I've deleted from my ps4, but I've already got Farpoint, which i feel is a bit better, so away it went.… Full Review »
