    Firewall Zero Hour has managed to avoid many of the common pitfalls of VR online multiplayers and add its own interesting twist to the military FPS genre. The lobby system could use some improvements, but otherwise its a finely crafted title that will be of great interest to FPS fans.

    Conventional gaming in VR done right in a system seller fashion. Dust your Aim Controllers cause you're in for a treat.

    Firewall Zero Hour is the most ambitious VR shooter on the market. With solid gameplay and tactics on the field, Firewall is all we were looking for.

    At last, the realistic, Aim-controlled multiplayer military sim PlayStation VR owners have been dreaming of.

    Despite a few issues and a dearth of modes, Firewall Zero Hour is the best multiplayer shooter available on PlayStation VR, and one of the platform’s best games. It’s exhilarating, immersive, tactical team-based fun, and one of those rare VR games that I’ll keep playing long after finishing this review.

    Firewall Zero Hour is precisely the game Sony needs for their Virtual Reality platform -- addictive, fast paced, and immersive. Unfortunately, it’s also in dire need of some tweaks to realize its potential. The grind is too deep, and the need for a ready-up system causes a lot of dead time between an otherwise richly rewarding tactical shooter. Patch this, and a few other minor hiccups, and Firewall Zero Hour will be the VR Rainbow Six it needs to be.

    There’s no doubt that Firewall Zero Hour’s tactical combat works well in virtual reality – in fact, the fledgling medium adds a lot to this FPS, allowing you to naturally gesture to teammates and intuitively check your corners in a way you couldn’t on a standard display. But while there are some structural and technical issues that we have confidence First Contact Entertainment will be able to fix, it’s the question marks over its community that make it a tough sell. It’s a chicken-and-egg situation that’s unfortunate for everyone involved, but it’s something that the developer would have been aware of when it embarked on creating an online-only multiplayer shooter for an install base of a few million headsets. Good as the game may be, it's something you need to keep in mind as well.

    Simply amazing and this will go down as a technology defining game, like Goldeneye in the 90s, which brought multiplayer shooting to consoles.Simply amazing and this will go down as a technology defining game, like Goldeneye in the 90s, which brought multiplayer shooting to consoles.
    Here are the various reasons why I instantly love this game and I can't wait to play every chance I get. There have been shooters in VR and PSVR but they pull off 4v4 PERFECTLY. I never experienced lag or any weird issues and that is on LAUNCH. That never happens. The graphics are fantastic, the gun sounds realistic, the maps varied and gorgeous, and it facilitates teamwork and cooperation. The games are quick and you get into a game right away after finishing. I played three hours last night and never had a lull in the action.
    There are SO many guns to unlock, skills, cosmetics, and other customization options. I truly can't believe how well the developers made this game. It is instantly accessible yet deep enough to keep unlocking and trying out things for months.
    The aim tracking is impeccable.
    Grouping up with other people works perfectly and they even let you invite recent players to your party. It's small details like this that go a long way.
    People may complain that the walking movement is too slow. But guess what - there is a contractor with extra speed and also a skill that gives you extra speed. That means when you DO unlock those things, it is going to seem extra powerful. So the weakness is actually a strength - the choices you make on your character actually matter.
    If you are a gamer, this is ABSOLUTELY WORTH BUYING A PSVR and even buying a PS4 if you don't have one. I am dead serious. It's that much fun. I haven't had this much fun playing a video game since I was a kid and we discovered goldeneye. Something about being in VR with your friends, attacking other people and the infinite strategic variations other humans bring, is completely mind blowing.
    I'm actually concerned this game is going to ruin my life because it's that good. Not perfect -- nothing is-- but I truly believe this will go down as the landmark game when the masses discover how good VR is really good. I can honestly say I have no desire to play anything else and no desire to play flat games anymore. It's like going from black and white to color.

Tense, excellent control scheme, great team play making it socially fun. I loved Siege and the similarities here are endless. Only fault I can find is the occasional disconnection from host in between rounds, but I am in Australia so we are used to server issues. No lag in game, solid maps, and large community from launch. A must for PSVR owners, and hopefully some dlc along the way to keep us there! Expand
