Michael Rougeau (IGN)

Farpoint is more than a proof of concept or another tech demo for virtual reality. Despite its predictable and unsatisfying story and hard-to-ignore bugs, it’s a full-fledged sci-fi shooter that feels fantastic to play with Sony’s high-quality PSVR Aim Controller (and slightly awkward without it). Several smart control options and design choices cater to a variety of different types of players, and the gunplay is second to none in VR. If I were to recommend one shooter to a PSVR owner, this would be it.

Farpoint may not move the needle as a shooter, but it’s a sound VR experience if you can deal with the slight simulation sickness caused by the locomotion.

Justin Clark completed Farpoint’s campaign in about five and a half hours and spent another two fooling around in Challenge mode–and didn’t even have to take a Dramamine this time.
