    Blood and Truth leaves the old glorified tech demos in the dust and realises VR’s full potential with an incredible blockbuster campaign that’s also a love letter to the city it’s made in.

    Blood & Truth absolutely nails VR with a high-octane ride through a cinematic story filled with action packed moments and some of the best gunplay we've seen on PSVR to date. If you own a PSVR setup, you need this game. For those that don't have the headset, now may be the time to make the jump.

    From the compelling and well-acted story to its engaging combat, SIE London Studios has delivered one of the best VR experiences on Sony’s platform. Like a hard-boiled blend of John Woo and any good London heist movie, Blood & Truth stands tall as one of the best PSVR games to date.

    Blood and Truth is a lot of fun, making use of a wide range of guns and all of the Move controller's capabilities.

    Blood & Truth is a perfect example of why virtual reality is still relevant in 2019. With fun run-and-gun gameplay, combined with some thrilling stealth action, the VR-title succeeds in immersing the player in an excellent spy adventure.

    Blood & Truth ends up being a strong title that adds more value to the PSVR platform. It may just be an evolution of the light gun game, but the immersion and action movie sensibilities coupled with a better-than-expected story for the genre does wonders as far as making it stand out among other VR titles. Provided you can handle the bouts of motion sickness, Blood & Truth is a VR game that's worth experiencing.

    Blood & Truth's story is about as gripping as trying to hold onto a bowling ball with greased up hands and its gameplay doesn't do much to make up for that. Add in a bunch of glitches and goofy moments and you're left with one disappointing VR experience.

After I got used to the mecanics, the shootings became very natural. I could even remove grenade pins with my teeth. Also had fun playing with all the gimnicks in "my" room. At first I disliked the node-to-node movement, but it works and didn't take away the fun for me.

    The downside in my opinion is related to the calibration. It was never clear to me where the camera should really be. The game gave me an "ok" as I was in the middle of the screen as it was suggested, but in some areas I had to hold a gun with two hands and one light was getting in front of the other (move controllers). This also affected the sniper rifle, unfortunately. Maybe putting the camera above the TV could help, it was just not clear to me if I should do it.

    The graphics are good, but backgrounds look like giant JPG's sometimes...I guess there's not much to do about it currently.

    I do hope this game sells good, because I want a sequel on the PS5.

I really enjoyed my time with Blood & Truth and wantedAfter 5 to 6 hours, I completed the story for B&T and am currently working on platinum. I really enjoyed my time with Blood & Truth and wanted to share my thoughts. So here's how I rate this action packed, narrative driven PSVR game by London Studios:

    Graphics, 8.5: easily the best realism based graphics on the PSVR to date.
    Sound/Music, 8: awesome implementation of 3D audio; the music suits the action tempo well.
    Story, 9: fantastic narrative; extremely well acted mocap performances.
    Gameplay/Combat, 7: stealth is fun; well paced; satisfying combat; reloading is rough; other issues.
    Fun/immersion, 8: Combat is exhilarating when it works; cutscenes are movie-like, very immersive.

    Overall, Blood & Truth is a solid, well polished PSVR game despite a few combat issues. I recommend the game to all PSVR owners including those who get motion sickness easily. It's not a system seller by itself, but along with Astrobots and Firewall, it makes the PSVR impossible to ignore.
