As I write this, I really just want to go back to the world of Marvel’s Iron Man VR, where I can literally be Iron Man. How good does that feel? Come here, I’ll tell you. Also: Stark’s death is not a spoiler, if the spoiler is several years old, come on.
Marvel’s Iron Man VR is in no way perfect, but at the same time in so many things so goodthat not only did I destroy my headphones in the heat of the moment (while playing), but I still think back fondly on them. What we are talking about is of course a VR game that is violent of the Move controllers benefits and in my opinion played while standing should be; So no, you would not have to do a round of sport afterwards.
It is sweaty,Save-the-plane-and-fight-in-gigantic-height-action rich and it is Tony Stark: If you were never interested in the Marvel character, the game is still a partly brilliant VR game, but should you have ever wished for a way back, before Avengers: Endgame? This is him. Because you will feel what it is like to be Iron Man; and the humor as well as the new story hit the point of genius idiocy in a good, old manner that we are used to from Stark.
Peng peng, BAM: Take a look at the launch trailer for Marvel’s Iron Man VR:
What is Marvel’s Iron Man VR?
I can tell you what Marvel’s Iron Man VR is not: It is not just a flight simulator, it is not your new motion sickness pit, it is not (really) subordinate to the film universe and it is by no means one of those half-cooked VR games in which you always ask yourself: “Why not more? ”VR can often be a disappointment, and yes, Iron Man VR also has some minor VR illnesses, but they fade in the face of a full-blown story, fantastic flight mechanics, and some really nice gimmicks.
Tony Stark is back with a story based on the comics: you climb in the game nearly all your senses in the Iron Man suit, but also take over Stark himself, wander through his house in Malibu, speak to Pepper Potts and go mysterious attacks by the hacker Ghost get to the bottom: Stark just got his weapon empire Bye Bye said and wants to focus on advanced technologies – in addition to his hobby of saving the world as an Iron Man, of course.
Similar to what we saw in the films, however, his moral change is not enough to wash him away from the sins of his past: the corporate opponent Ghost takes revenge on him with modified strong industrial weapons; something that should not only push Tony to his limits, but also threatens the fate of the world in a very old-fashioned way. It is not an original, completely new story, but it is well told and implemented even better in VR.
As the name suggests, Iron Man VR is available exclusively for PSVR; without PSVR glasses and Move Controller, it is therefore not playable. Which is a good thing, because only in this way can the game fully take advantage of virtual reality: the biggest plus point of the game. Well, besides the fact that you almost never feel sick.
Test conclusion: The moments when I took off the VR and mumbled “Oh fuck”
Iron Man VR will take your body, disassemble it, put each piece individually in the Iron Man suit and then throw them in the air and beckoning to you, “Have fun!” (As you fall screaming).
Have you ever wondered like Tony Stark’s suit really controls? You know, he has these things on his hands and he has to point them down to keep a rocket right above the ground. If he wants to go forward, he directs his propulsion rockets backwards – and if he is attacked by ten nasty robot critters, he shoots with one hand, controls with the other and tells you a joke.
Well, you can be damn glad that you don’t have to tell any jokes with Iron Man VR: learning to fly is enough to push you to the limit. The be-all and end-all of the game is that Flight mechanics, which is just complex enough to beat you to the nappy and still be fun. You will fall. You will race against walls. You will fly exactly where you are Not wants to go. And then in the sweat of your face you will learn to be better, so good that you will do justice to Tony Stark.
If it were just a flight simulator, it would be a really nice pastime. The strength of Iron Man VR lies in that Mix of story, gameplay and VR gimmicks; such as the ability to pick up items and throw them around (it’s fun!). The antagonist Ghost is set in a more creepy scene than you initially think, just as your let’s save the world adventure quickly becomes much more personal than you might think.
I will not say it for a VR
game good is. No, Iron Man VR is a good one gamethat you guys successfully with Attention to detail and one solid story will take you into the world of Tony Stark for several hours. You will be smaller VR diseases how twitching hands, strange body animations, VR graphics and long loading times have to overlook, yes. You will have to be careful not to demolish your apartment during the fight or to move too far from the camera; and you shouldn’t expect sovereign drama like The Last of Us. However, that wouldn’t fit into Stark’s universe, if we’re honest. Interest? You can buy Marvel’s Iron Man VR in the PS Store for 39.99 euros.

… and it’s all damn satisfying. If Iron Man VR convinced me in one, it was the talent to pull myself into this virtual reality one after the other. Gameplay and story go hand in hand here, as does the integration of the motion controller: You always have two hands with which you can grab Tony Stark as a person and shoot and control as an Iron Man. I was barely half an hour in the game when I wanted to put my controllers on a virtual table for a short break (which didn’t work).

There are no perfect PSVR games like we would like them to be these days. And that’s simply because PSVR currently means cable clutter, as well as worse graphics and shorter games that sometimes don’t even have a story. Games like Iron Man VR also suffer from the prerequisites of technology, but go one step further than other contenders and show – in my eyes – what is possible and what will be possible in a much higher quality at some point. Marvel’s Iron Man VR will be released on July 3, 2020 exclusively for PSVR and can only be played with the Move controllers.
