Available for PlayStation VR and VIVE platforms, this DOOM adventure will bathe you in virtual carnage. Developed by id Software, the studio that pioneered the first-person shooter genre and modern VR, DOOM® VFR brings the fast-paced, brutal gameplay fans of the series love to virtual reality. Immerse yourself in the UAC facility on Mars and the depths of Hell, as your skills are put to the test through intense combat and challenging puzzle-solving. Play as a cybernetic survivor who is activated by the UAC to fight the demon invasion, maintain order, and prevent catastrophic failure at the Mars facility. Lay waste to an army of demonic foes as you explore and interact with the outlandish world of DOOM from an entirely new perspective.
Set shortly after the demonic invasion on the UAC’s Martian research facility, you are the last known human survivor – until your death. Under a top-secret UAC operational contingency protocol, your consciousness is transferred to an artificial brain matrix. Your designated purpose: restore operational stability and use any means necessary to stop the onslaught of demons.

I remember the times when ID was a pioneer of many things in technology, engines and all technical stuff, having legendary games like Wolfenstein and Doom on their resume. Doom 2016 was a great return of the series, because instead of being a slog in small corridors covered in darkness, while trying to push non-existent and boring plot like Doom 3, it went into overdrive with gameplay, giving incredibly intense, action packed and old school in feel FPS with a lot of violence, with plot taking a seat and the writers and designers being self-aware that it is unnecessary at all. Sadly, Doom VFR takes and throws out of the window all the awesome stuff that was in the "original" and replaces it with limited gameplay. Sure, it is limited by the tech itself, because if they would make Doom, just with VR, then you would have to play it with bucket on your lap. Instead, what they did is make a game with pacing slightly better than in Doom 3, only instead of moving, you teleport (unless you plug in controller, then you can move normally), which is not a bad option (everything slows down around you so you have time to think about your move), but it is limited. Controls themselves are responsive, so no complaints there. Overall, if you liked Doom 3, you will enjoy it with VR, as a game itself it is not that bad, but if you expect Doom 2016 in VR, you will be disappointed. 7/10
DOOM VFR is slightly different from DOOM which released last year, and did not bring only the main game into virtual reality. Doom VFR has the fast-paced gameplay and is full of action scenes. The DOOM VFR involve players into hell that they have not even seen before. In this game, instead of moving yourself, you need to teleport from one point to another, like other virtual reality games. Undoubtedly, DOOM VFR brings a new and different experience for all DOOM fans.
