Review: Just when I thought the platform side-scroller was dead along comes Witchblood to prove me wrong. OK, so it’s all in glorious 3D that looks pretty great in VR, but it’s still the same style of game. At first, I was enjoying the game, but I wasn’t impressed with its use of VR. …that was until I realised the whole map of the game and my path is placed on the surrounding none-gaming wall making frantic use of it. Witchblood is proof that VR games big, beautiful and full of depth like a full AAA game. With 6+ hours of gameplay you get great value for money, a great use of VR and great gameplay thanks to joypad support. This is exactly what the Gear VR needs more of.
