Robinson: The Journey
“ Players can pick up objects and throw them, interact with designated aspects of the environment and generally carve themselves a path along the linear route under the occasionally imposing guidance of HIGS. Robinson: The Journey is hardly groundbreaking in this respect, but tying each disperate mechanic together in an enjoyable adventure is more than many have achieved in VR thus far.” – Read VRFocus’ Editor Kevin Joyce’s review of Robinson: The Journey.
Robinson: The Journey is available now on for £9.97 (GBP) down from £44.99.

Duck and dodge everything that’s thrown at you in this fright-filled rollercoaster ride from hell– exclusive to PlayStation VR. Can you survive seven levels of pure terror to top the global leaderboards? With multiple paths to take and nightmarish themes to scare the living daylights out of you, no two rides will ever be the same – and neither will you….”

“Yes, Rez Infinite is somewhat short, with an initial playthough possibly taking around a couple of hours, but you’ll enjoy (or should enjoy) every minute of it. So much so you’ll probably keep replaying it, improving your score, evolving your character and just taking in the whole spectacle. In answer to the first paragraph’s question about whether Oculus Rift and HTC Vive owners should be excited about Rez Infinite’s release, this is one VR videogame that should be in your library.” – Read VRFocus’ Senior Staff Writer Peter Graham’s review of Rez Infinite.
Rez Infinite is only £11.99 (GBP) down from £24.99.

Final Fantasy XV: Monster Of The Deep
“Final Fantasy XV: Monster of the Deep is one of the best-looking PlayStation VR titles currently available. Its possible to waste quite a lot of time simply taking in the scenery. The title also uses the limitations of the PlayStation VR cleverly, by letting players sit facing the camera most of the time, it eliminates most of the tracking issues the PlayStation VR is known to have. Though far from a deep experience, Final Fantasy XV is surprisingly absorbing, and can chew up an impressive amount of time, despite its slightly repetitive gameplay.” – Read VRFocus’ Staff Writer Rebecca Hills-Duty review of Final Fantasy XV: Monster Of The Deep.
Final Fantasy XV: Monster Of The Deep is currently on sale for £7.99 (GBP) down from £24.99.
Batman: Arkham VR
Become the Dark Knight in this immersive VR experience that gives players the chance to live out their superhero dream and be the Batman.

“Despite some minor gripes, its clear that Apex Construct represents the way forward for VR videogames, an absorbing, intriguing experience that draws you in with a rich world complete with its own history and mysteries to be unravelled as well as a fluid combat system. Apex Construct is the standard by which future VR titles will be judged, and an indicator that VR has stepped up its game.” – Read VRFocus’ Staff Writer Rebecca Hills-Duty’s review of Apex Construct.
Apex Construct is available for only £15.49 (GBP) right now on sale from £24.99 with an extra 10% discount available for PlayStation members.
