    Pixel Gear is another bright spot in the PlayStation VR’s lineup. This digital-only release gives players some of the best shooting action on the device so far and is great to break up RIGS play sessions for when you still want to do some shooting, but want something a bit more relaxing.

    Pixel Gear is an ok experience if all you are looking for in the game is simple bare bones shooter. Everything about the game is repetitivePixel Gear is an ok experience if all you are looking for in the game is simple bare bones shooter. Everything about the game is repetitive and simplistic, but there is a little bit of fun you can have with the game. The major downsides of the games are lack of guns, same enemies, uninteresting levels. Game needed just a bit more effort to be decent. The price point makes the purchase reasonable tho, if you are ok with this basic shooter gameplay. This seems like a good game you can have your younger sibling play if anything. Full Review »

    There aren't many contents in this game but a platinum.
    Only 3 levels with 3 okay boss design and very dull gameplay.
    For the multiplayer

    For the multiplayer part, one player use the controller to hide and collect coins, the other one use the headset and move controller to find and shoot. That's worth something, maybe.

    This game consists of 3 levels with a boss battle at the end of each level. The boss battles are cool and the aiming is incredibly accurate.This game consists of 3 levels with a boss battle at the end of each level. The boss battles are cool and the aiming is incredibly accurate. With that said, its very short. I got maybe an hour out of it and there inst much incentive for replaying. You only get to hold 1 gun at a time the whole game. There are upgrades and other guns you can buy that go away after the level ends and they aren't really anything spectacular. Neither is this game for that matter. If it dropped a few bucks in price it might be worth it, but even for 12 bucks there isn't much there. Full Review »
