The appeal of Stormland, beyond its visually stunning world, is analogous to a jungle gym: once you’ve run through its brief obstacle course, it’s up to you to make your own acrobatic fun. Jumping, gliding, or otherwise launching yourself off of Stormland’s highest peaks with your own two hands is an absolute treat in VR, and one that’s worth going through the motions of the middling combat, repetitive missions, and light story for.
I admire Stormland’s open-world shooting and traversal, which feel like genuine steps forward for VR. The UI is inspired, the upgrade system smart, and its co-op shows a lot of promise. But as an evolving live game, it hasn’t shown me enough to make me want to strap on my headset again next week.
Stormland is a short experience and its attempts to add replay value don't really hit the mark. However, it's still one of the more impressive virtual reality games on the market, and a clear step forward when compared to many VR titles that have come before it in terms of controls and freedom of movement. Now that Insomniac is owned by Sony, hopefully it can continue its virtual reality work with PlayStation VR or maybe even the rumored PlayStation VR 2 on the PS5.
