    Surgeon Simulator ER completes the requests by many VR folks for the original game to be played this way. It doesn’t present too much new in terms of gameplay or graphics. If you didn’t enjoy the original game, you’ll probably pass on this one as well. Surgeon Simulator isn’t for everyone and doesn’t have the mass appeal as say Job Simulator, but for those that found some fun and charm in the original game, Surgeon Simulator ER can give you a new way to play and some more enjoyment out if it.

    It’s largely the same hilarious, gory surgery sim you know and love, but its mechanics don't translate well to VR.

    Far less fun than both it could and should have been, Surgeon Simulator ER is undone by poor PSVR implementation and lack of additional content over the previous non-VR release.

    If you played Octodad, you know that having bad, unresponsive controls on purpose can be funny. Surgeon Simulator tries that, but it does it in a way that makes you think the controls are broken. It isn't fun, but frustrating. The team has promised a patch to fix this, so you might want to wait for it before buying it.

    Unfortunately, if you are stone cold sober and trying to channel your inner Doogie Howser, this lack of any tangible precision will prove to be an instant turn-off.

    As it stands, you should absolutely hold off on Surgeon Simulator: Experience Reality for PlayStation VR until the controls are overhauled in the planned update. I ended up having some fun once I learned how to work around those glaring issues to a certain extent, but even in the best of times, it was a struggle. It's a shame the launch went this way, because there's an entertaining VR experience buried in here.

    Thanks to obtuse controls and horrible tracking, Surgeon Simulator’s move to VR is an unfortunately frustrating, perpetually unfun experience.

    This game is ridiculously fun once you've placed your PlayStation Camera in a good angle. The majority of these reviews complain about theThis game is ridiculously fun once you've placed your PlayStation Camera in a good angle. The majority of these reviews complain about the games tracking and how unresponsive it is. It's called get a bigger room and place the PlayStation Camera further away from you. Overall, I love this version of Surgeon Simulator, but certainly not as much fun as the PC version of Experience Reality

    8/10 - Would Drop Headset Again

    Do not buy. It's a terrible game that is almost unplayable. There are plenty of better VR games to buy and play than this piece of garbage.

    Surgeon sim VR suffers from sonic 06 syndrome and shows game developers why its a good idea to hire at least one person to test your game.Surgeon sim VR suffers from sonic 06 syndrome and shows game developers why its a good idea to hire at least one person to test your game. Bugs are so numerous and game breaking that bypassing the third level is a near impossible task with mandatory body parts flying away and instantly causing a game over, constant crashes, unnecessary arbitrary difficulty increases bad track and restarting a level often forces you to restart the app to get your hands back. Avoid until patched at all costs Expand
