    While many players may have not used their PlayStation VR in awhile, Marvel's Iron Man VR is without a doubt the game to get people to dust it off and play again. Far more than a tech demo, Marvel's Iron Man VR actually makes you feel like you are flying around and firing repulsor blasts in one of the most immersive VR experiences to date.

    For PSVR owners, it's a simple and safe choice to spend the $39.99 for this experience, but for those considering investing in picking up the PSVR towards the end of this console generation's shelf life, well, let's hope they really, really like Iron Man.

    Iron Man VR offers the ideal experience to feel like Tony Stark for a few hours, with a very competent adaptation to virtual reality that makes us feel like superheroes with intuitive and simple controls.

    Being Iron Man looks, feels and plays great, even if long loading times and a steep learning curve kill the joy a bit. One of PS VR’s most engrossing titles, nevertheless.

    Marvel's Iron Man VR is the path between a game and a VR experience. Some of its mechanics are very satisfying, but it fails to present the adventure that fans of this character have been dreaming of.

    Iron Man VR feels restricted by its game design to be little more than a fun wave shooter, when it could have been much more. It is still a very fun game to play in VR and it's one of their better titles, but it never even scratches the heights that it so clearly aimed for.

    Crushed beneath a monotony of drones to trash, muffled dialogue to decipher and environments to float amidst, there are brief pleasantries and welcome respites in Marvel’s Iron Man VR. Distractions that unfortunately amount to the only genuinely welcome highs in a VR effort that, commendable an effort it is to move out of the regular shooting gallery format, are wound up in one too many technical follies and lackluster mission objectives for the implied liberties to feel substantial. Yet in a game with such dire over-reliance on its players treating its controls and combat — both at the same time — like second-nature, when the erroneous ways with motion controls crop up, the damage to one’s time (and thus one’s enjoyment) is far more detrimental. Appeasing fans with its source material, on its own, is a harmless endeavor. So long as there are little difficulties and confusions with the gameplay accompanying it. Marvel’s Spider-Man proved what good-will can be generated out of such licensed iterations, when wielded properly. Marvel’s Iron Man VR, however, is a flawed but ultimately frustrating effort to sell. Twisting the once-attractive proposal of being Iron Man into a clumsy misdirection.

    A game made too early for it’s own good.

    Marvel and Sony’s relationship has always been kept under wraps to the public but one things for sure, their relationship makes good games, and this continues with Iron Man VR however you can’t help but feel like the PSVR limits what this game could’ve been drastically.

    The story is fairly predictable given the amount of MCU movies that follow the same kind of structure. It is still enjoyable but don’t be expecting a story that is going to make you think long and hard after finishing it. The best part of the story is the personality of Tony, which isn’t a difficult thing given how much source material Camoflauj had to pull from, but they nailed his ability to make fights ten times funnier with his quips during fight scenes.

    Having his quips brings a reason to continue with the fight scenes, as there is not much to the fights after you are taught the initial controls of the game there isn’t much more to it, there is slight iterations of weapons as you progress and are able to customise your own Iron Man. However they don’t offer enough variety to make fights consistently different and entertaining, they become mundane and repetitive.

    In contrast to the repetitive fights in the game, the environments are incredible they are bold, detailed and given that you are Iron Man you can explore a lot of them to the fullest whilst flying around. Just like with Spider-Man PS4 and Insomniac focusing on perfecting swinging, the Developers at Camoflauj have openly stated that they focused on making you feel like Iron Man and flying was the fundamental to make this happen. This shows as the flying in Iron Man is incredible it’s responsive and consistently fun to do, aided by the rumble support of the PS Move controllers.

    But, and here is the big overarching but with this entire game, the world is very grainy and not very polished and that is not the fault of the Developers at all, it’s the hardware, the PSVR in it’s current state cannot run this game well at all, this game could’ve been on of the most incredible VR games if it had been delayed to PS5 or maybe even beyond, to a point where the hardware could live up to what the Developers clearly wanted to created with this game. This coupled with ridiculously long loading times means that it’s a very easy game to put down, I would have to sit down during loading screens they were so long and often would only play a level or even less in one play session as I would get frustrated that right after an action set piece that was awesome I’d have to wait 5 minutes to see what was next.

    Overall this is brilliant game which uses the features of the PSVR to make you feel like Iron Man and that’s an awesome feeling but I didn’t really care about the story as I guessed most of it right out of the blocks. However, despite using the PSVR’s features extremely well its the hardware that let’s this game down, it was simply too ambitious for the current hardware

    Iron Man VR 6/10

    The game is so boring.
    It's not fun.
    The graphics are not very good either.
