HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift owners are swimming in a sea of mediocre shooters on Steam, but PlayStation VR fans don’t quite have the same luxury. With Sony acting as a gatekeeper, only worthy titles are admitted.

Farpoint is one of those. The game was shown a couple of years ago at different occasions, and was touted as the first true first-person shooter on the platform. Being developed by some of the people who worked on the SOCOM series, Farpoint always looked more like an actual game rather than a catchy tech demo.

The developers were so committed to their vision, they worked with Sony to create a new controller called PlayStation Aim that aims to elevate immersion by representing the in-game weapon in real life.

Here are the reviews so far.
Scores are out of ten unless otherwise noted.

Farpoint, and the PlayStation Aim Controller, are both out today on PlayStation VR.
