Our videos of Batman Arkham VR

Our videos of Batman Arkham VR

Batman Arkham VR is probably one of the most anticipated titles of the PS VR launch this week. Putting on the Batsuit has never been more real in a video game, but it's never been that short either, as it only takes about 90 minutes to complete. That being said, beyond its limited gameplay mechanics and its short length, this is by far one of the most immersive VR experiences on PS VR. Some might think the price tag is a bit too much, but considering that 3D movies can sometimes be almost that expensive, but are also clearly less immersive, we believe it's worth your money if you're a fan. We now leave you with a few videos, though the best way for you to understand what to expect would be to try out the game yourself if you can.



On the plus side


+ Superb environments
+ Great atmosphere
+ PS Move controllers put to good use
+ Gameplay mechanics may be simple, but they're truly pleasant
+ Being the Bat!


On the downside


- Very short
- Not much replayability
- No vehicles to drive/pilot
- Basic gameplay mechanics
- Ending is a bit too abrupt, we would have loved to see more

Gameplay #1
Gameplay #2
Gameplay #3
Gameplay #4

Not bad VR game for start but would be much better with arms not just hands...and with better movement.
It was funny when you tried to hit the guy :D

Thanks for the video. What are the odds of you guys getting the new Star Wars Old republic: Knights of The Eternal Throne 6 minute trailer?

I knew it would be more a vr demo than a game.

Looks quite boring tbh.

Looks fun but the lack of means to move around really bothers me. Teleporting is not a solution. I wonder if I could handle the motion sickness if you could move with sticks like in normal games. Also yeah, just another paid demo instead of a full-price game - publishers don't want to risk by betting on a full-scale AAA VR game but at the same time the lack of some killer VR games is what stops many people from buying into it.
