Skyrim VR is a hot mess

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR can be one of the biggest fails of this year. At least in VR enthusiasts' eyes who did have an opportunity to test it themselves.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR can be one of the reasons virtual reality is, in fact, the future of gaming and immersive sandboxes. Whole Skyrim with no limitations in PlayStation VR game? It sounds amazing, but we did not yet see a world so vast in Sony's virtual reality headset. Some players had a chance to play the demo and there were not happy with what they saw.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR's main problem apparently is movement itself. Developer chose moving by jumps and teleporting like that should eliminate any motion sickness possibility. Sadly, is not good. And remember promises of many options of movement? Yea, we don't even know if it's still a thing.

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim VR - first look

Woman that plays the demo admits the fight with spiders in dungeons are really exciting and intense. New method of moving isn't the most comfortable, though, and it could be a big problem when it comes to a game design for dozens of hours.

George aka Super Bunnyhop was much more negative. He complained about almost every element of the game. Bad controls, ugly graphics, stupid AI... 

Flaws pointed by himare similar to the ones DreamcastGuy talked about on his YouTube channel. In his opinion, the game is simply badly done. Faulty collision detection takes away all the fun from the fights. To strike with a sword, you need just a touch, so there is no immersion. Aiming system is all wrong too. Want more? There are also doors opening themselves, strange conversations with NPCs... it's a disaster!

Skyrim VR - wrażenia

Bethesda had to make many compromises with VR version of TES V: Skyrim and it does not look good. Yet, there are still couple of months before the release. Maybe, just maybe, they'll hear all those complaints and fix them. If the game needs to be delayed, do it. But badly done Skyrim can make a lot of bad press for PlayStation VR. And that is how the new gear fails.
