Every game has its own pros and cons, but the name created a big expectation in the mind before its launch. That would also be the reason for the negative feedback about the game
But of course, its Doom that you are going to play in VR. That itself is a loving spark to the game lovers. If you had played Doom game, then the eagerness to play its VR version would move you to next level.
The game is intense and immersive, the slaying actions to kill the demons is an added advantage of the game. Though the game has certain control issues, a Doom lover with a recommended VR headset would get a blasting experience.
The Doom VFR brings the use of cool weapons to its users. Each weapon has its own secondary fire mode. The instant teleport kills is a treat to the players
This is not game to play for a shorter sessions, if you are expecting to play a high core violence in a shorter session, you will be quite disappointed.
- The VR version of the game is a treat for the "Doom" lovers.
- The game is quite strong and forceful
- Sexy weapons and teleport moves.
- Complex moves and controls
- A stressful feeling while using a DualShock 4 Controller
See What the Critics Say
Metacritic ranks the game with 70 based upon 16 critic reviews.
"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." Read More>>

"Doom VFR has a few control issues and won’t take you long to get through once, but if you’re a Doom fan with a compatible VR headset, it’s one of the best experiences around.
iD has bought Doom to VR without compromising the action or the hellspawn-slaying, nerve-wracking pace that makes Doom Doom, and a tiny bit of nausea here and there is a small price to pay. Do yourself a favour: Bring it on." Read More>>>

"Technically, it is the best we have seen in PSVR, and the sensations are as frenetic as in the original DOOM, although the argument is not preserved, and the development has been simplified and considerably shortened. Better if you play with the VR Aim Controller." Read More >>>

"Despite its scattershot approach to control and bite-sized scope, DOOM VFR provides a tantalizing, gore-soaked and adrenaline filled peek at the future of PSVR." Read More >>>

"Doom VFR is a remarkable experience in almost every way. There are intense battles, terrifying enemies, and amazing settings to explore, all tied together with a combination of creepiness and wit. All of this is almost upended by one of the worst control schemes ever implemented on the (admittedly difficult) PlayStation Move controllers. Doom VFR is still well worth playing (in fact, it’s a blast), just go into the experience with the understanding that no matter which controller you decide to use, you won’t be 100% satisfied."
