Description: Batman: Arkham VR immerses you in the Dark Knight’s Universe and redefines what it means to be the Batman. Experience Gotham City through the eyes of the World’s Greatest Detective in an all new Arkham mystery. Think like Batman. Utilise his legendary gadgets in Virtual Reality to unravel a plot that threatens the lives of Batman’s closest allies.

Review: Over the last few Batman games, Rocksteady has shown people just how good a Batman licenced video game can be and well done to them. But Batman VR is something very different and the PSVR needs that killer title. So is Batman: Arkham that killer game? Using the normal controller or the Move Controllers you control Batman (Or as Bruce Wayne) to each point in the game (a sort of teleportation style or movement).

From Wayne Manor to the Batcave, there are loads of great locations to see and while the game is short, what there is looks simply amazing. The story goes that you need to find out who attacked Nightwing using your grapple gun, the classic Batarangs and even a forensic scanner. This isn’t the fighting / all-out action we have come to expect, but rather a slower paced science and detective style gameplay. The good news is that this slow pace allows you to take in the gorgeous graphics and sublime sound effects at your leisure.

PewDiePie said that this was the best VR experience he has had, but I don’t agree with that. In my own opinion, I think this is indeed a good experience that is sadly far too short (like most VR games are at the moment), but for just £15 it does offer good value for money. More games like this will make the PSVR the success Sony would love it to be.
