I’ll be the first to admit, I’m definitely a latecomer to VR. Up until about two weeks ago, I was part of the masses of people stuck in regular reality, but a decent tax return and a temporary abundance of free time changed that. Now that I’m living in The Oasis, though, I have an insane backlog of games to play, and a technicality in Jump Dash Roll’s style guide means that I get to write “first impressions” instead of Brutal Backlogs for many of those titles, regardless of how long they’ve been in Early Access. The first one on my list is Pavlov VR, which has no reason to still be in Early Access, but it did leave a great first impression on me. For anyone who’s unfamiliar with Pavlov, it was one of the first shooters developed for virtual reality. It came out almost exactly 5 years ago, and is currently playable through Steam VR and the Quest store. In that time, the title has had a ton of features added, with the most recent one being a World War 2 mode called Push. However, my first time playing the game was well after all those updates, and honestly, I’m glad I waited until now to pick it up. I spent my first hour in the game getting used to its controls. Unlike some of the other VR shooters I’ve played, the title is attempting to mimic Counter Strike and Garry’s Mod more than it is Arma. TOP/BEST ADULT VIDEO GAMES IN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (USA)

While there’s still plenty of realism to be experienced, it’s not quite as serious as something like Onward (check back soon for our review). Reloads are simple, the default movement speed is a smidge faster than in other titles and you have a much more generous inventory. However, this makes the game feel absolutely fantastic. Once I summoned the courage (and lower body strength) to try my hand at a standard multiplayer match, I was amazed at how much it felt like, well, Counter-Strike. All the guns feel great to use, the controls are surprisingly intuitive, and the game looks great compared to Quest-exclusive titles. There’s also an insane amount of content to play through in the vanilla game, ranging from standard search and destroy maps to the Among Us mode called Trouble in Terrorist Town. This all benefits from being in VR, too. There’re a lot of design choices in Pavlov that wouldn’t make sense for a regular PC title, but when I had a headset strapped to my face, those choices made me fall in love with the game. Things like having infinite-ish ammo, the ability to dual wield literally any gun and a lack of waste-high cover made the game feel like it’s clearly designed for VR instead of simply being a VR port of a Valve title. But from what I played, which admittedly was a lot, the real greatness of Pavlov comes less from its gameplay and more from its community.

Even though the game is still technically in Early Access, the amount of fan-made content it has is astounding. There’re servers running everything from search and destroy on a Dunder Mifflin map to Nacht der Untoten zombies from Call of Duty: World at War. While the base game is a lot of fun, there aren’t words to describe how surreal it is to shoot zombies in a map that I spent hundreds of hours in as a tween or to plant a bomb in somewhere that I’ve seen thousands of times on Netflix. The community has ported the best maps from the classic Call of Duty games into Pavlov VR, and there are also sporadic attempts to make games like Halo a virtual reality too. These modes are what define Pavlov for me, and they’re what’ll keep me coming back to the title in the coming months. The community itself is also great. Anyone who’s played a virtual reality title knows that many of the people who play Slayers are on the younger side, but this works in the game’s favour. While Counter Strike and Insurgency are bogged down by want-to-be Chris Kyles, in Pavlov, people just want to enjoy themselves. The title’s amazingly functioning proximity chat and radio system lead to some silly moments that simply aren’t possible in the likes of Squad or Arma. Over the past three weeks, interactions with strangers in Trouble in Terrorist Town and search and destroy were a big reason why I kept playing, and what’s great is that it can only get better from here.

While Pavlov is an Early Access title in the same way that the version of Not for Broadcast that I gave my game of the year award to was, developer Vanktrupt Games has proven that it still wants to continue adding features to the title going forward. While I’m not exactly sure what the developer has planned, seeing as there’s already more than enough content to justify its $25 price tag, I’m excited to see what happens with the title in the future. But even in its current beta state, Pavlov VR is already one of my favourite VR titles. It’s long since had the fundamentals of a great virtual reality shooter, there’s an astronomical amount of stuff to do and the community seems hell bent on making me feel like a tween on Xbox Live again. The cost of entry is a bit steep, and the offline bot mode leaves a bit to be desired, but it’s also the only virtual reality game with an active playerbase and a Trouble in Terrorist Town mode. If you’re on the fence about picking it up, don’t be. And if you’ve already picked it up, please start a dedicated Call of Duty zombies server so I have someone to play co-op with. Amongst the still-growing world of virtual reality games, an early staple that’s retained a devoted following is Pavlov, a first-person shooter available for PC and the Oculus Quest. On the surface, it seems like a straightforward Counter-Strike clone, even explicitly carrying over many of the same maps and weapons.

Community hosted dedicated servers.

But there’s more to it than meets the eye, making it one of the more commonly recommended games in the VR space. There are several core modes in the game. Aside from Deathmatch and Team Deathmatch, which are self-explanatory, the two borrowed directly from Counter-Strike are Gun Game and Search & Destroy (SND). The former is a deathmatch variant in which each kill cycles players through the an arsenal of pistols, rifles, and shotguns. SND asks a terrorist team to plant a bomb while a counter-terrorist team tries to prevent it or defuse the bomb if it is planted. Critically, gear costs accumulated money, and anyone killed during an SND round stays dead until the next one. For many players, having access to these in VR is reason enough to sign up. The experience is much more tactile: each gun not only fires but reloads in a unique way. The .50 caliber sniper rifle, for instance, requires players to grab a single bullet from their pocket, slide it into the chamber, and slide the bolt. Players can crouch, blind-fire, and steady their aim with a second hand. In fact, some weapons – like the .50 caliber – may simply launch backwards if fired single-handed. The true popularity of Pavlov, however, lies in its mod support. Players are regularly creating new maps, and server admins are implementing custom rules, for instance offering revives and healing in SND play. The Matrix Awakens An Unreal Engine 5 PS5

The game’s developer, Vankrupt Games, recently added an entire World War II component, complete with new maps, guns, and multi-person tanks. The most popular mode by far though is Trouble in Terrorist Town (TTT), which is less about shooting than outing traitors, much like the blockbuster Among Us (TTT predates the latter, having been born in Garry’s Mod). There’s relatively little modders can’t do, which gives Pavlov an endless sense of variety. The best Pavlov experience requires a PC, but Vankrupt is focusing a lot of its recent work on the standalone Quest version, Pavlov Shack, bolstering graphics, gameplay, and map selection. Since Shack can be played without being tethered to an expensive desktop, there’s the potential for the game to reach a much wider audience than its forefather. For the moment, though, it still requires installation via SideQuest, so players will need a PC to get started. One time there was this 8 year old child in my TTT lobby. He was a nice little kid and wasn’t annoying, when he was innocent he was begging to not get shot. While I go in the distance and buy a barret since I was a traitor. I proceed to snipe in from across the map and his body tore in half from the bullet. Everyone laughed, then after that he left the lobby and I forever can not forgive myself and the sins I have caused that day. As an onward fanboy, I had put off buying this game for a long time.

Practice range.

It seemed like a simplified, faster paced variation of my favorite vr game, and I was a bit concerned that the speed of movement would make me feel nauseous or simply less immersed. In a lot of ways, it is a simplified and quicker version of onward, but in a lot of other ways, it is so much more. All I have to speak on is from the two and a half hours I played last night, but I was admittedly blown away the entire time. Starting from the tutorial, three things instantly stuck out to me that were enough to get me pretty hyped on purchasing. In onward, I have given up on any form of optic. It’s not to say they aren’t incredibly realistic or good looking, but the amount of time it takes to aim down the sight in combination with the long distances and pretty significant screen door effect (I have the og vive, not onward’s fault), makes it so by the time I can line anybody up, I’m already laying dead on the ground. So I decided that it was iron sights or bust, and sniping was something I generally avoided. In Pavlov, the sights seemed MUCH larger to my eye. I’m not sure if they are, but using a holo sight felt far more natural and finally beneficial. On top of how much nicer I felt it was visually, the attachment system in this game is a dream come true. Aug sight a bit too close to your eye for comfort? Just grab it and place it further down your Picatinny rail. And once I got into the armory and saw that I could consistently land shots with that fifty cal, I was in heaven. Again, I really love onward (buy onward, it is worth it), but it is also the best comparative I have so I’m going to have to use it as an example a lot here.

Two handing weapons in onward could be slightly better, at least for me. I’m not sure if it’s more sensitive, or how I can even justify this opinion, but the best way to explain the feeling is that I have been considering investing in a stock for onward as stabilizing a rifle (perhaps because there are a larger amount of very long guns), is a bit more difficult for me. Playing Pavlov I felt more free to hip fire and hit targets from odd angles with consistency, and maybe this is a bit less realistic but it’s admittedly much more satisfying. But if the game is less realistic in that regard, it is far better in regards to recoil. I love gunning ten ai down with an LMG that stays right on target in onward, but let’s be real, many of these guns are going to kick like a mule, and having to strategically burst fire or follow my weapon’s spray is another aspect of my favorite fps that I’ve experienced in vr for the first time because of this game I’m not sure the technical name you would assign this, but in Pavlov, you can see the effect of your shots. I nerded out when I called back my first target in the range to see it was full of legitimate holes instead of a textural effect marking my shots. The kill time is a bit longer than I think it should be, but every time I headshot my buddy to see his helmet fly off before I could land the critical shot made me laugh like a madman. Small caliber pistol kills to the head will cause a blood fountain to spurt out, and larger pistols and shotguns fully decapitated me several times. I was once shot by a fifty caliber and actually exploded.

It’s probably overkill, but it’s hilarious demented fun, and it’s especially great in vr. As you can see, there’s a lot to love, and the vast majority of this can be seen from the tutorial alone, but my final selling point is the one which made me realize how much of my life is about to be wasted playing this game. And that selling point is the steam workshop. Oh my god. What can be said. A huge shout out to the man person named KillerJim, who has recreated a FULLY functional vr Der Riese, of World At War fame. Playing Nazi Zombies in vr really struck a chord in me. It’s an intense combination of fun, fear, and nostalgia, and it looks identical to what we remember, down to the textures used and even the zombie models. I was able to download Beaver Creek from Halo, Rust from MW2, the list goes on. Seriously, you will be blown away by this game. It is everything you could ask for in a vr shooter, and with a dedicated (and incredibly talented) modding community, there will only continue to be more amazing things to experience. “The CSGO of VR.” Seriously, this game is really good. Most of the flaws that it suffers from are centered around it just being VR, so some things just kinda happen (guns can be held through walls, throwing knifes never work out, etc). It’s a weird mix between CS and Gmod, cause the normal gameplay is refined like CS, but the community imput is more so that of Gmod. Swordship
