Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter Review

8.9 Total Score
Very Good

Serious Sam VR: The First Encounter is a frantic arcade action FPS, featuring singleplayer and co-op campaign modes, various multiplayer modes, all presented in glorious VR with Croteam's new Serious Warp movement system. It starts pretty strong already, but the later levels are more aesthetically pleasing, and the huge bosses, massive number of enemies, and large-scale levels all add to the awesomeness. Shooting feels accurate without any auto-aim, and the laser sight they give you on the more accurate guns really helps for sniping farther targets. The menu has options for locomotion, so you can play teleporting or running around. You can also dual-wield, which wasn't a thing in the original game. One of the best combinations of technical performance, amount of content and sheer enjoyment currently available in VR. So if your looking for a fast paced 360 degrees shooter then I'd highly recommend it.

Very Good
