    The Wizards delivers one of the most solid experience we enjoyed in VR. It is immersive, comfortable and makes perfect use of motion controls to make us feel like summoning spells and confronting huge creatures.

    The Wizards Enhanced Edition is a pretty fun VR fantasy adventure that brings consistent thrills to the PSVR in its cool spellcasting and its polished presentation. You’ll feel like a real, powerful wizard slaying orcs and goblins and lots of other crazy creatures — and the launch price of $24.99 is pretty sweet too. The relatively short length and one-note gameplay might spoil the magic a little bit, but there’s no doubt that this is a VR game that all aspiring warlocks should consider trying.

    Making gestures to cast your spells is amazing and very funny, even when you start noticing some repetitiveness while you progress in The Wizards - Enhanced Edition.

    The Wizards: Enhanced Edition allow you to live in a fantasy world. But HTC Vive and Oculus Rift could be a better choice than PlayStation VR for this game.

    The Wizards offers a slight change of pace from the wave based shooters PSVR is flooded with. You're still taking out waves of enemies as they run towards you but this time you're using gestures to conjure spells and it works very well. It's quite short and even then the constant battles do become repetitive but the spell upgrades do give a decent incentive to replay levels.

    Not only is it a lot of fun, as a magician, I feel really powerful when I throw my magic on my enemies with a single wave of my hand. However, they also have to be a real threat. Too often, it's the mass of enemies that bring me to my knees or the Playstation camera loses its connection to the Move controller in a hectic moment, sealing my failure.

    The Wizards: Enhanced Edition wrestles with the limitations of PSVR and never wins, deeply undercutting its enjoyable spellcasting with inaccurate motion tracking. These issues are only made worse by uninteresting missions and repetitive combat, making the initial splendour of this spellcasting adventure fade very quickly.
