The London Heist: PS VR Review

The London Heist: PS VR Review

Platform: PS VR
Released by Sony

As part of the VR Worlds experience, The London Heist is a stand out.

With its Lock, Stock and 2 Smoking Move controllers mentality, this East-end set tale of gangsters, shooting and a jewel is one of the standalone elements of the PS VR Worlds title - and could easily have been  a game in its own right, if it had been expanded out.

Set up and under suspicion for having nabbed a jewel, you're in the action from the get-go, either being tied up in a warehouse or sat in the seat of a car shooting at bad guys heading your way.

Essentially a collection of cut-scenes where you get to interact with the world around you as well as firing some guns as besuited bad guys take you on, The London Heist is a Statham style experience which could have been more.

The cockney accents are laid on thick and the action is a clear indication of the Guy Ritchie style ethos at work - but again, it's too short an experience to qualify as a game (even though it is part of the PS VR Worlds package).

You get to practise in a shooting alley as well, and the pace and thrill of the overall game is definitely worth investing in. It's just a shame it wasn't a longer piece - as it could have been one of the stand out titles for the PS VR launch.

  1. The technology has become integral part of our lives. And virtual reality makes it even more interesting part of our lives. VR gadgets are becoming highly popular these days and VR Headset is one of the biggest examples of it. Virtual reality is the attraction of 2016 because it is the year that boosts the probability of PlayStation VR, Samsung Gear VR, Oculus Rift and HTC Vive that have taken the medium level of the mainstream.
