  • Summary: Face off in extreme battles, immersing yourself in this visceral, jetpack-fueled VR arcade shooter. Danger is everywhere as you fly through the arenas, so stay sharp as you dodge and weave through the VR battlefields.

    Time will tell whether or not Space Junkies can stand the test of time, ideally maturing into a game that can live up to the games it borrows from. As of right now, Space Junkies is at the very least, is a must try for owners of the PSVR headset.

    A decent arena shooter, but the lack of PS Move support is somewhat inexplicable.

    A light-hearted Zero-G arena shooter which delivers a simple and entertaining VR experience. Too bad for the lack of PS Move support.

    Ubisoft delivers a barebones VR arena shooter set in space for 4 players. Although the technical execution is good, the lack of content and the disadvantage you have against PC players due to being limited to using the DualShock 4 controller only prevents it from being truly fun. Maybe in time this game will grow out to be the next Unreal tournament in VR but right now we cannot recommend this game, especially at the current price point.

    If you're in the market for a competitive online VR shooter then Space Junkies may be worth getting if you don't mind its simplicity.

    What’s damning is that Ubisoft is asking for $40 for a limited amount of content, and presumably expecting PS VR owners trapped by limited options to simply plunk that money down.

    The shooting is less responsive, because Space Junkies doesn’t allow you to use PS Move controllers. Instead, you aim by pointing the DualShock – something that can work in slower-paced VR shooters like Resident Evil 7, but just isn’t suited to frenetic head-to-head combat, especially when the game’s crossplay links you up with PC players using full motion controls.

    Worst VR game on psvr not even worth the buy. Spend money somewhere else, you will just be disappointed.
