    Perfect handling, a robust challenge, and a creative use of PSVR ensure Sniper Elite VR is an unmissable headset shooter. Despite some niggles, this one’s on target. [Issue#4, p.78]

    This is a fantastic use of VR. And excellent use of the Aim Controller. The level of immersion provided by this peripheral is unparalleled. So much so that if there was a tripod attachment for the Aim, I would buy it. Just so I can truly feel like a sniper setting up the shots. Sniper Elite VR is the complete package. It’s got great gameplay, excellently designed levels, and the best scope use of any game to date. While the game may have some graphical blemishes, Rebellion has stated that a day one game patch will be available to address them plus other items.

    Sniper Elite VR is a well designed, well implemented VR shooter. It has a massive amount of options to suit even the most trepid VR gamers. The short levels are well suited to the medium, as they encourage exploration and experimentation, while Sniper Elite VR also looks great, it also sounds good too and I don't think being a sniper has ever been quite so immersive and tactile as this.

    Rebellion and Just Add Water’s made a fine effort at bringing Sniper Elite to PSVR. By offering a full-sized original campaign, more authentic weapon handling, and ample replayability, it’s a strong debut for this established series into first-person territory. Though motion controls feel fiddly at times and the PS Move controllers do the experience a disservice, it’s a great adaptation worth looking into.

    As we wait for the inevitable Sniper Elite 5, this is one virtual reality shooter you won’t want to miss. Sniper Elite VR hits its mark with immensely fun sniping gameplay, delivered in perfectly portioned bursts of action.

    Sniper Elite VR is a great first-person VR shooter wrapped in the familiar camouflage of Rebellion’s famous franchise. The story is nothing to get excited about but the moment to moment gameplay, whether you’re going for thrills and kills or sneaky silenced shots, is more than worth the budget-friendly asking price.

    Sniper Elite VR is not a great game. It is fun from time to time, especially at the beginning, before the novelty of exploding a Nazi spleen in VR wears off. But this is not an experience I can recommend to anyone other than serious fans of the Sniper Elite series, or someone hungry for a PSVR shooter.

    It was good at first, but then I started to have issues with taking cover, I was getting shot anyway even though ai crouched and it just setIt was good at first, but then I started to have issues with taking cover, I was getting shot anyway even though ai crouched and it just set me back to standing with or without the crouch button. I could not move without getting shot at, the graphics are **** enough so that you cant see an enemy some meters away and you would expect way better graphics for a Tripple A game(game made by a bigtime company). I got stuck on ”recalibrate” endlessly even though my VR is working properly. So I just quit the game. Deleted it. And had a moment of respect for all the money I lost. Expand

    That Game itself is good it would be a 8 or 9 BUT!!! That controller drift is so BAD! Before every enemy i have to rearrange the controller.That Game itself is good it would be a 8 or 9 BUT!!!
