Vanguard V

☀☀☀ In the third-person VR game Vanguard V, you control an astronaut in a spacesuit and a robot companion. Learning time: less than five minutes. You move your headset to control the gameplay. The point of view switches to first-person sporadically, changing perspectives between the astronaut and the robot companion. Most of the game consists of dodging debris and meteors and protecting the “heat shield.” Vanguard V is fun, but don’t use a headset without a strap; there’s a lot of head motion involved. Its journalistic value is minimal: you can learn how to use a headset. — Garrison Murphy
