Doom VFR is a brave shooter that proves that VR games don’t have to be conservative with movement to work. Fast-paced action with a great stable of recognizable weapons and enemies makes it a challenging rush, once you find your VR legs. It’s a shame VFR story didn’t get the same self-aware treatment as Doom did, but even if it’s all about warping and gunning, that’s more than enough.

Much of your time in the game is spent wandering the UAC facility, waiting for the chance to unleash wrath on Hell's inner circle. When you do, it can feel great, but Doom VFR feels like a game unsure of whether that's the case. The result is a game that feels tentative about its own considerable power.

In the end, though, the real fight is with its awkward control setups that eventually led me back to play with just a standard gamepad. Though the foundations of a hugely enjoyable shooter are intact, VFR’s struggle with the platform’s limitations makes it feel like the VR support is holding it back more than anything.

Bethesda’s really tried to make DOOM work in virtual reality, but despite supporting all three of PlayStation VR’s control options, it doesn’t really feel like the title was designed with any of them in mind.

I was really surprised at how much I enjoyed my time with Doom VFR. Skyrim VR had soured me a little and I wasn’t really looking forward to playing. But this shows that rethinking how a game will work in VR, instead of just shoehorning a game into VR wholesale, can make the world of difference. It also helps that the game has a price tag to match.

DOOM VFR is an outstanding, but limited, game. The lack of arcade and multiplayer content hurts the overall package, but it does its sole purpose of replicating the campaign in VR incredibly well.

As a VR experience designed from the ground up for the technology, Doom VFR is probably the best example of this to date. There are some improvements to be made with the movement, but it is otherwise a fantastic bit of the ol’ ultra violence that shouldn’t be missed. Bethesda have definitely shown they understand the potential of VR, so hopefully we’ll see more dedicated VR experiences in the future.

Now the big question: is Doom VFR any good? Well, it's reasonable ... but after the initial impact created by the shift into virtual reality, we ended up wishing that the experience was closer to that of the original. Doom of 2016 plays like a dream, and the gameplay is precisely its strength. It's an extremely frantic and exciting first-person shooter, but since Doom VFR sacrifices that to accommodate virtual reality, the experience suffers in the process. If you're a fan of Doom and virtual reality, it is definitely worth considering for £20/€30, but it's far from being mandatory, unlike the original before it.

An inspired effort to try and make Doom work in VR, but the limited control options on PlayStation VR leave the action feeling clumsy and frustrating.

Técnicamente, es de lo mejor que hemos visto en PSVR, y las sensaciones son tan frenéticas como en el DOOM original, aunque no se conserva el argumento,y el desarrollo se ha simplificado y acortado considerablemente. Mejor si se juega con el VR Aim Controller.

Doom VFR ha tenido que realizar bastantes modificaciones en la campaña original para poder adaptarse a la realidad virtual. El resultado es un juego bastante interesante, perfecto para liberar adrenalina disparando a demonios del inframundo, pero que a menudo se antoja poco confortable y algo engorroso en el movimiento.

Con una increíble combinación de mecánicas que enaltecen los valores que definieron al género, DOOM es un frenético ballet demoniaco donde esquivas adversarios, proyectiles y realizas malabares con un puñado de enemigos, eligiendo la mejor herramienta en un instante para acabar con una decena de enemigos en pantalla. En este sentido, DOOM VFR se siente como un retroceso en todo sentido que no transmite la experiencia de la entrega original.

Mit seiner eindrucksvollen Kulisse, die zum Besten gehört, was man dieses Jahr hinter der Brille genießen darf, sorgt Doom VfR trotz teils biederer Mechanik dennoch immer wieder für Wow-Momente. Doch selbst die visuelle Gewalt und die unter dem Strich gelungene Anpassung der Dynamik an VR-Bedürfnisse können diese Ballerbude nicht in gute Bereiche hieven. War Doom letztes Jahr mit seiner Art, wie es Action inszenierte, noch etwas Besonderes, sieht sich die letztlich biedere VfR-Variante zahlreicher und besserer Konkurrenz ausgesetzt.

DOOM VFR peut être considéré comme un DLC solo du DOOM sorti en 2016. Il propose de suivre une nouvelle histoire pendant environ 3 à 4 heures, dans des décors que l'on a déjà visité par le passé. Les mécaniques de gameplay fonctionnent toujours en réalité virtuelle, et le jeu se montre toujours très nerveux dans les affrontements. Et si le corps à corps disparaît, une téléportation couplée à un "bullet time" fait son apparition. La sensation de puissance qui en découle est vraiment grisante.

La réalité virtuelle était-elle faite pour Doom ? Le Fast FPS de 2016 allège la plupart de ses mécanismes pour proposer une aventure inédite à vivre au PSVR dans laquelle il faut se déplacer via des téléportations ou des petites foulées.

Avec son prix attractif de 30€, DOOM VFR se révèle être un bon jeu VR pour qui aime voir gicler du sang dans des décors infernaux. Bien que la durée de vie soit légère (5h au total), elle reste dans la fourchette haute des expériences purement VR, tout en apportant une réelle plus-value en terme d'immersion vidéoludique. Toutefois, pour que l'expérience soit la plus totales, on vous recommande chaudement de disposer d'une pièce assez grande pour profiter du jeu à fond.
