If you’ve bought yourself a PlayStation VR headset and are after a charming title that anyone can have a laugh playing or watching, Headmaster should be up high on your list. It’s the perfect example of how the format opens up new gameplay opportunities, and is sure to provide you with hours of fun and plenty of challenge.
It sets out to do two things — providing a soccer-style game that shows VR can work with sports-themed games and throw that concept a curveball with some dark comedy. It succeeds at doing very little, and while that may sound like we’re damning it with faint praise, it really is a lot of fun to play. It’s probably the best party-style game of the launch lineup and something that any potential VR owner with a large circle of friends will want to pick up.
Headmaster sports a good amount of levels with increasingly harder odds but it makes the player feel like they deserve to be tested in the exams after going through so many practice drills. This slow progression of skill is aided by the game’s immaculate physics system but the same cannot be said about the bland look and poor particle effects. Headmaster runs away with the ‘gameplay is king’ mantra, and in this case, it’s enough to warrant a hearty recommendation.
