This will make so many people "pleasant". Nothing better than fast-action FPS in VR. XD

I'm optimistic. Such a fast-paced shooter tho, I dunno how well it's going to work.

It looks like it's using a teleportation movement mechanic so I'm not sure it's really a fast-action FPS in the same sense as the original game, but that's probably just a consideration to the format. Looks pretty damn cool.

On PSVR and all. Great to see more support for it. Hope it's good and has a significant amount of depth to it.

I watched te trailer twice, and while there's a teloport-style type of movement, you can be very fast, as in you can teleport from one place to another, and then to another very quickly. It shows this a lot in the trailer, and the teleporting speed is also fast.

Then you have the fact that from what I saw, enemies' movement speed was exactly the same as the normal game. So you will need to keep moving a lot if you don't wanna die.

Lastly, but not least, the trailer ends during a finishing animation, but before it completes. Given how many of the Runes and upgrades were dependant on you using finishers one after the other, and the animation jumping you very fast from your position to the enemy's, and having to do that constantly, I can't imagine that being a particularly good experience in VR.

Even Resident Evil 7, with a far, far slower movement and pace, made a lot of people who were quite resistant to motion sickness in VR in other games, have to play carefully.

When you combine all of these facts, it's hard not to imagine that a lot of people will have a very hard time holding their lunch in their stomach. Of course, I'm sure that id Software is doing all it can to minimize this, but I can't imagine how anyone will be able to play one of the later levels from beginning to end without stopping to take a breather.

Resident Evil has fully free 3D movement though. That's part of the "problem".

    KORNdog and down - that was a review for alien resurrection in 2000. i found it kind of funny that gamespot complained about that, given that's how all games work now on consoles. (5 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog The game's control setup is its most terrifying element. The left analog stick moves you forward, back, and strafes right and left, while the right analog stick turns you and can be used to look up (5 Hours ago)

    asdfg @alimokrane: like you generalized that KORNdog must read reviews? (1 Day ago)

    alimokrane @asdfg: I wasnt talking about ALL gamers, I was talking to KORNdog. Way to go generalizing. No wonder the world is doing so well with everyone generalizing! (1 Day ago)
