    A game doesn’t always need to be flashy in order to be great. It doesn’t need the backing of a major license. Sometimes it just needs to do what it sets out to do very well to stand out above the rest. VR Invaders is a superbly crafted bullet hell VR game that is highlighted not by an ostentatious setting, but rather excellent game design. It’s just a shame that excellent game design in VR more often than not means the experience ends far too early, lacking a good balance between mechanics and content.

    It is as good and clean fun under the PSVR headset as it was with Rift a few months ago. Thanks to the tactical slow-motion and the sufficient motion tracking this remains a decent shooting gallery with a sci-fi touch.

    VR Invaders is a rock solid example of the wave shooter genre that is flooding the industry right now. It’s not original or even particularly memorable, but its mechanics are refined and its gameplay is entirely reliable (it gets extra points for a competent PlayStation VR port, too). It’s soon forgotten but appreciated while it’s there.

    VR Invaders offers a fun, if short lived VR shooter experience. The shooting feels good and the enemy variety keeps things interesting, but the lack of online leaderboards combined with the limited content means it won’t keep you occupied for long.

    I think the best way to sum this game up is "meh". It's okay for what it is and has some polish (though the graphics are pretty basic so thatI think the best way to sum this game up is "meh". It's okay for what it is and has some polish (though the graphics are pretty basic so that doesn't mean much) but it's very short (about an hour) and very repetitive for the hour it lasts. There is also a survival mode and training, but it's literally all the exact same thing with no variety. The bosses are basically the exact same thing as well over and over. The shield and slow down are probably the only notable things for this one and they aren't worth the price of admission alone. Definitely wait for a sale on this one, unless you love wave shooters and score-chasing. If you love those 2 things, this game is probably worth a purchase. Expand

    VR invaders is shooter that uses the move controller. Shooters are one best genres in VR but this one is pretty generic.
