    Thankfully, PlayStation VR Worlds is a crowd-pleaser solution. It’s essentially the Wii Sports of Sony’s PS VR. [Christmas 2016, p73]

    PlayStation VR Worlds is the best way to try every little aspect of the PlayStation VR headset. London Heist and Scavengers Odyssey are both amazing experiences to play however they are both very short and they had a lot of potential to be a full game. A very immersive title full of surprises but a bit too expensive to begin with Virtual Reality.

    A game with really high highs and really low lows. Ocean Descent and The London Heist are great introductory VR experiences that I think everyone should try, whether they're into games or not. Their biggest downfall is that they're both really short. Scavenger Odyssey, on the other hand, just made me motion sick. Overall, its a collection of novel but insubstantial tech demos.

    PlayStation VR Worlds offers 5 different VR games that let us see what will be coming soon, thanks to VR, but all of them are frustrating for different reasons. The London Heist and Scavenger's Odyssey are very nice experiences that are really too short, VR Luge offers good speed sensations but is quickly boring, Danger Ball is a fun VR Pong without multiplayer, and Ocean Descent offers no interactions at all.

    It's difficult to recommend as a standalone purchase. [Christmas 2016, p.122]

    Here's hoping the better two games get standalone releases for cheap, because they're good (but not NZ$69.99 good).

    For all intents and purposes, it is PSVR’s official demo – Sony just wants to ensure it makes some extra money off the thing. Not exactly a great look, kicking PSVR off with something so nakedly cynical, but that’s business for you...Worlds includes five games, barely any of which are worth playing more than once, and only one of which I genuinely enjoyed

    Is it perfect? No. But it is essential, and is currently the best polished, most varied, and easiest entry point for the uninitiated.

    Once
    Is it perfect? No. But it is essential, and is currently the best polished, most varied, and easiest entry point for the uninitiated.

    Once again, enthusiast media and "hardcore" gamers completely miss the point. VR Worlds, along with the free download 'Playroom VR', is an essential PSVR title. This collection of experiences is the easiest entry point for VR, starting with 'Ocean Descent', a visor-only descent to the ocean floor that at once allows players to acclimate and be amazed to the power of VR immersion. Danger Ball is essentially VR Pong, also visor-only, and allows players to try out 'gaze' style gameplay like that featured in Rez and Rigs.

    London Heist is an incredible piece, showing of mature action themes and showing off the Move technology in a virtual 3D space. Certainly the most "game-ass game" of the lot, it also allows people to see their threshold for more intense and stressful scenarios like Until Dawn and the upcoming RE7, and even Batman VR which, while not action-oriented, is very intense by being in close proximity of not so nice human characters. Maybe it will turn players on to more adventure style games like the Assembly and Loading Human, or Shooting Galleries like Brookhaven and Ace Banana.

    Scavenger Odyssey is the most motion based game, and will definitely test you ability to handle locomotion as seen in games like Rigs, Battlezone, and EVE Valkyrie. It is intense, but for those who can handle it, again, shows off a lot of potential and can guide your interests in the future.

    I haven't played Street Luge.

    Basically, for anyone who wants to try PSVR, THIS is the game. You will likely play through it once and get an idea for what you WANT and what you can TOLERATE in VR, but will break it out every time someone else wants to see what VR is all about, and then go from there. This and Playroom VR are the Wii Sports" for VR, so I feel that rating this anything less than a 10 (essential, not perfect) is short-sighted and irresponsible.

This is my favouriteIve been a gamer for years and nothing could of prepared me for what VR is all about and capable of delivering. This is my favourite demonstration to give to family and friends as a step into a different reality and a new way to play games. Great value for money and something all PSVR adopters should pick up.

The games are pretty well made, but with little depth to them... They largely rely on gimmicks rather than being intuitive, which is surprising considering it is the first-party showcase.

    Don't get me wrong, VR is brilliant. But it's sad that third-party developers seem to be finding the niche both faster and cheaper than Sony themselves.
