Hyper Void: VR Levels (PSVR)
Intro: This is the first time space battles occur not only in the depths of galaxies but right inside cross-dimensional wormholes! Punch your way through waves and waves of enemies from all races in the universe as you travel through volatile and crazy wormholes, all rendered in high-quality 3D with a heart-pumping progressive soundtrack!
Review: Hyper Void: VR Levels is an on-rails space shooter that has a classic arcade style look at feel. In fact, it reminds me a lot of the Atari Jaguar game Tempest 2000. Just about everything in the game is fast. The action is fast, the music is pumping techno and even the gameplay need you to have quick reactions.
The good news is this game allows for quick reactions and sharp responsiveness which strangely does make it a dream to play despite the high learning curve. The small variety of guns, powerups and enemies keeps things interesting to begin with, but you soon find yourself getting a little bored. But then it does just manage to pull your attention back with a boss fight or two.
Verdict: This is not the easiest game you will ever play. It throws you into the deep end and the learning curve starts vertically. Set around 29 levels and some boss battles there certainly is quite a few hours of content here, but the lack of a multiplayer is still sadly missed. Still, it’s a fun little game, that really didn’t need or indeed benefit from a VR update. Sure it looks trippy. but it doesn’t really add anything worth noting to the original game other than a new way to view it.
