Simple games are often the most rewarding, but that's not the case here. Gun simulations don't get much more basic than Lethal VR, which has no pretense of story, only a single (but dynamic) shooting environment, a small arsenal of weapons, and challenges no more sophisticated than "shoot this stuff while taking care not to shoot other stuff." It can also be completed in around an hour, with the only reason to dive back in being to try to get faster and more accurate to achieve a higher score.

Making matters worse, the knife-throwing activities prove extremely frustrating. Reliable accuracy proves nearly impossible, the blades often flying in directions 20 or 30 degrees off what the player intends. And these sections can't be skipped if you want to progress. Players will likely burn through most of the gun-only challenges on their first tries, then be forced to attempt many of the blade activities five or 10 times before successfully completing them. They act as bottlenecks keeping players from the only faintly satisfying parts of the experience. If you must play a gun game in VR, look elsewhere. There are plenty of better options.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
