    jp's Marvel's Iron Man VR (PS4)

    [March 2, 2023 12:52:20 PM]
    Wow, they really nailed the (imagined) experience of being Iron Man as seen in the movies. You basically do a similar thing with your hands to what Iron Man does to hover, fly around, attack and more. You have to use the PS Move controllers (the "lollipop" ones) - and I have a hard time remembering to charge - and keep them charge (I charge everything off the PS4, so I can only charge one things at a time).

    The game is definitely more tiring for me to play than other PSVR games I've been playing recently - I think it's mostly because there's more hand movements and more turning around and stuff. I almost want to say I also lean forward and back as Iron Man but that is probably just the natural response (that has a name, but I'm forgetting it - e.g. same as when you lean over when playing a driving game)

    I appreciated the narrative parts of the game - but there's a lot more of them than what I expected and they're also a lot longer than what I expected. To the point I was starting to feel tired just from standing there listening to the characters chit chat and stuff. There's also more depth to the game's systems and mechanics than I expected - more than I was willing to engage/indulge in - mostly for time rather than interest.

    Is the game any fun? Well, it nails the Iron Man experience and can feel quite exhilarating at times - for all the good reasons. So, yes - definitely an good example of using VR in smart ways - I guess the more I think about it, the more I realize that I really wanted to just play missions and not have (most) of the story stuff - which I get is important, but also felt it was less interesting and tiring?

    I think I played 3 campaign missions? (before deciding to shelve the game). I didn't get to experience the full depth of the upgrade and options system - but that's ok.
