The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR Review I UploadVR

For a game that wasn’t originally designed for VR at all and has been ported first to the least powerful of the big three VR platforms in the PSVR, Skyrim VR is nothing short of impressive. This really is the Skyrim that you know and love, but now you can enjoy it like never before with the immersive presence of a VR headset. With a large variety of control schemes to choose from and hundreds of hours of content, this is a game that all RPG fans should play as long as you can look past the sometimes glaring issues. And if you don’t own a PSVR yet, luckily there’s a new Skyrim VR bundle with your name on it.

I'm a couple hours in. It's pretty amazing!

Have you tried the oculus rift and if so which do you think is better? I've been hearing some good things about psvr but I don't want to buy it and not like it. I'd like to try Skyrim and gt sport in vr

ibrake4naps1307d ago

I haven't tried oculus, but if I had a good computer I would of went that route. As is, I love my psvr though

JaguarEvolved1307d ago

The psvr is getting a lot of support but I want to know more about the viewing quality vs oculus rift. Paris games week showing makes me know Sony is proper supporting the psvr with games but I'd like to know which vr unit I should buy.

The psvr has a lower pixel count screen, but a higher sub-pixel. The Oculus is a higher spec headset, that is better against the dreaded screen door effect. But it's impressive what the psvr can do on an aging console, and it is getting better support than it was. I've owned mine since day 1, and it's still amazing, doesn't feel like a gimmick, it trully does put you in the game!

I see some awesome deals for the psvr so I think I'll buy one very soon. I'm just hoping it's amazing like some people say it is even though it's inferior to the oculus rift. I really like that it has a lot of games support and a lot more coming. I just really hope I like it and that I'm not wasting money on a peripheral hyped up by fanatics. Ill buy resident evil 7 again for ps4 even though I already own it for the pc because a lot of people say it's best played in vr.

I've actually heard that the screen door effect is better on PSVR because of the subpixels..🤔

The max refresh rate on PSVR is also better than Vive or Rift, at 120, but the resolution in both those headsets beats PSVR. Almost all the best games are on (or are currently being ported to) PSVR, so generally, the quality is good game wise too, even if some are on the short side.

Finally, people with Vive/Rift say tracking is better there than PSVR, but I can't verify. I can say I've had no trouble with mine and RE7 is indeed awesome on it. It's easy to be blasé when playing horror games on flat screen, but the slightest thing gets you nervy in VR! 😂

Looks like Skyrim VR is getting decent reviews. Yes, PSVR isn't perfect. But gamers have gotten past the limitations because of the excellent immersion of VR.

Trying to figure out if I should just take the plunge now or wait and see if there's a sale this month or next. Since Moss, Bravo Team and The Inpatient are pushed to next year, this and Doom are my only choices. Decisions...

PSVR will be 199 next week... I said hold off... I got mine last year top dollar ended up spending around 1k for all the games i wanted the VR etc. etc. if i knew then what i know now i would wait until next week.

Hey chef. You might have misunderstood. I got PSVR at launch but not sure yet if I should buy Skyrim for $60. I stopped buying games at launch like when I was younger. Saves a whole lot of money for bills, trips, food and plenty of games that are discounted.

Like when Sony had the anniversary for PSVR, I bought even more games for cheap. Since I buy and play single player games over multiplayer, there's no rush to get online before lobbies lose player counts. And GoftY copies usually have everything included for $20 or less.

ahh okay, I thought you were saying you're not sure if you should get the VR and Skyrim (take the plunge) gotcha, but yeah i'm going to wait to see what deals are out. I only buy PSE's at full price because I know i'm going to get my bang for my buck. for example, I bought Horizon "Amazon Prime" 47.99 and played to date about 80 hours and I still have gotten to the DLC yet taking a break before I start that just got the platinum on Saturday. But yeah I bought Skyrim 2 times already, (ps3 & ps4) i'm def. going to get this for like 30$ if anything.

Skankinruby1307d ago

Think I'm gonna finally pull the trigger on buying vr, hope more full length games support it like this

BABY-JEDI1307d ago

I really wasn’t planning on getting this. Some really bad reviews of the demo. But the visua & control scheme options have turned it around (hate teleportation). This has turned into a PSVR must buy 😉

G20WLY1306d ago

Same. Soon as I saw you can control it exactly the same way you can on regular PS4, I was SOLD!!
