Game to try any of these on the PlayStation?

Batman: Arkham VR

Batman: Arkham VR

Price: $37

Batman: Arkham VR is a must buy for anyone with a PS VR headset. Rocksteady has created a short but utterly immersive VR escapade that uses the virtual world to maximum effect.

Players begin by suiting up in the Batcave, then travelling to Gotham's underbelly to solve a heinous crime. Once the crime scene has been analysed, players set off after the perpetrator by jumping from location to location and piecing together clues that were left behind.

Arkham VR is packed with clever puzzle mechanics, great voice acting and a dark twist at the end that left me wanting more.

Rigs Mechanized Combat League

Price: $62.90

Rigs is one of the few multiplayer games on the PS VR, and I can see it fast developing an active player base.

In this game, you pilot a mech and you can go up against either human or AI opponents in a three- to five minute-long game. Mech-based combat feels hectic yet easy to control, and there are different modes and machines to keep the gameplay fresh.

The only downside to this is that, after a few fast-paced, head-spinning matches, I found my stomach churning and had to take a break.

Until Dawn: Rush Of Blood

Price: $32.90

If you are scared of clowns and hate roller coasters, Until Dawn: Rush Of Blood is your worst nightmare.

I do not have a particular fear of either, but I still found my palms sweating and my heart racing after several levels.

Players sit in a rickety wooden cart with a gun in each hand, and hurtle through the horrifying remains of a dilapidated funfair. To stay alive, shoot them up before they shoot you.

The Playroom VR

Price: Free

The Playroom VR, which was developed by Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan Studio, is a series of six fun multi-player mini-games.

It is free to download and, like most of the games, works with a single PS VR and multiple DualShock Controllers. It is a great way of showing off your new VR kit to your friends and family.
