The first was five years ago Windlands Part of the launch range for Sony’s VR glasses and stood out from most competitors with its great freedom of movement. There wasn’t too much game content, but gamers could move almost freely through a semi-open world – as long as they could handle the controls and had VR strength. About three years after other VR platforms, Part 2 is now also available on the PS4 and delivers a mixture of well-known and new elements.
The playful corset has remained the same: Again we swing through the air in worlds that rely heavily on the vertical and hold move controllers in both hands. At the push of a button, ropes are shot with grappling hooks that only get stuck on certain elements of the environment and then let you swing like Tarzan – but it takes a lot of practice to reliably chain fluid actions. A new addition to the range is a bow that you can use to shoot arrows. You need it for opponents and sometimes for big bosses, because this time there is a story campaign that also relies on battles and lets you quickly notice that you need more practice for successful coordination. Fortunately, you can also team up with up to three fellow campaigners or tackle tough time and collection challenges if you wish.
