With the PlayStation VR
exclusive Blood & Truth
, developer London Studio
has created a story-driven action spectacle built specifically for the most virtual of realities - VR. Our own Adam 'Grizz' Mathew is a fan of the tech, plus he's always wanted to be the star of his own Guy Ritchie
crime-drama. Thanks to a pair of Move controllers he got pretty damn close.
A snippet from his action movie reference heavy review.
Never underestimate the endless amusement of a simple thing that's well designed. In Blood & Truth, a VR renaissance of the lightgun genre, this manifests as a dedicated 'spin your pistol' button. You hold circle on your Move controller, give your wrist a flick and become Billy the Kid. I can honestly say that twirling magnums, glocks and machine pistols never got old when I was John Woo double-fisting them. This is it. I've found my gaming equivalent of Homer Simpson and his drinking bird.

Let's get the plot of Blood & Truth out of the way early, even though it's of little consequence. Though it never rises to the greatness of a Guy Ritchie script, what we have here is basically a cockney-gangster flick with VR controls. You play the disembodied hands of one Ryan Marks, a highly-skilled special forces operator who is pulled off the line when his old man croaks. After level one, what was looking to be a generic shooter set in the Middle East does a complete backdrop swap to the capital of ol' Blighty. You know: fish, chips, cup 'o tea, bad food, worse weather, Mary fucking Poppins... London.
