Farpoint - Review Roundup


Polygon:

Farpoint may seem basic in a few years, once VR design has progressed past the point of simple shooters. But right now, as developers are still wrestling with the language of virtual reality, it’s tough to get the basics right in any VR game, much less a big budget shooter. Farpoint isn’t perfect, but it nails those basics.

Destructoid:

My enjoyment of Farpoint is inherently tethered to my experience with it in VR. As a shooter it's only slightly above average. But the team was able to incorporate various elements of sight, sound, and touch (by way of the Aim Controller) to elevate it. Here's hoping that more games actually make use of it.

US Gamer:

Farpoint is a game improved by the package it's sold in, which makes it a smart move for Sony and Impulse Gear. Taken together with the Aim Controller, Farpoint it's a solid showcase for PlayStation VR, even if it doesn't necessarily stand on its own. 

Eurogamer:

For newcomers to VR it can be a jaw-dropping experience made all the more novel thanks to the Aim controller. For everyone else, especially VR veterans, Farpoint is simply a shooting gallery whose one grand idea is placing a slightly bigger lump of plastic in your hands.
