Suitable for Arcades or a VR Cinema.

GAMEPLAY (5 / 10)

The player goes through some scenes as Batman, investigating crimes and heading to enemy places. The game is beginner friendly with no very intense motion sickness inducing action like riding the Batmobile or fighting criminals. The player uses Batman’s tools and interacts the scene around them. It is rather passive and is not the most exciting VR experience around.

AVG. PLAYTIME (7 / 10)

This game is a 1 VR hour experience for the coolness of the player being Batman and it has to be experienced in full from beginning to end. For events, this is too long of an experience. However for using at arcades, the 1 hour time may be the perfect duration to sell an experience.

PLAY AREA (9 / 10)

This game requires seated/standing space which is great for anyone who has not a big space for VR.

GRAPHICS (8 / 10)

The graphics for this VR game is impressive and its needed for such a game title. You can feel that you are in Gotham City or in Batman’s secret base in his home.


WRAP-UP / VERDICT

Batman: Arkham VR is good as a once in a lifetime VR experience. It has great graphics and audio, and the gameplay is good for beginners to VR and suitable for arcade experience.
