Survivorman VR: The Descent – The PlayStation VR2 Review

May 7, 2024 ·

When you think of survival, what comes to mind? Do you think of a scenario in the wild, or could it be the world as it is now? The unknown presents a challenge to anyone who dares to face it. Knowing survival skills, even if they seem strange, can accurately test one’s abilities. Surviving the unknown is always a challenge for anyone who tries it. Survival skills can be a matter of life or death, and testing them in the wild is a great way to learn and improve them. However, even if the skills seem strange, they can still be a valid test of one’s abilities. But do developers, Cream Productions Inc. & Descent VR Productions Inc., along with publisher VRKiwi allow us to challenge whatever may come our way? Let’s find out with Survivorman VR: The Descent for PlayStation VR2.

Survivorman VR: The Descent is a survival skill game with an authentic and dynamic experience in the breathtaking Canadian Arctic. Face real-world extreme challenges that push your intellect, emotions, and physical abilities to the limit. Under the expert guidance of legendary survivalist Les Stroud, rely on your skills and resourcefulness to save your own life. So before you try to survive the Arctic, there are a few things you should be aware of. First, make sure you have some arm-length room. Make sure you have some arm-length room to move around. You don’t want to hit anything or anyone while playing. Before you start playing, make sure to charge those Sense controllers. You don’t want to be stuck out in the cold because you forgot to charge them! Third, I am not going to spoil anything for anyone. And finally, have some fun. With all that said, let’s continue…

When starting an expedition adventure, it’s always a good idea to read up on what you might need, such as snacks, a good camera for those memories you’ll be making, and a book like “Will to Live” by Les Stroud. But the most important thing is to have someone with you to help you survive whatever nature throws your way. Les Stroud, also known as The Survivorman, has been on TV for many seasons and has taught many how to survive in the wild. In Survivorman VR: The Descent, you receive a welcome greeting from him about how he can teach anyone, yes, even you, how to survive the Arctic from the scenario he has created. The scenario is to make it down the mountain while trying to survive. Sounds simple, right? Lucky for you, there is a lot of snow and you have Les there to help you along the way, even if you do drop the knife in the snow.

It would be best if you used all of your survival skills to survive. You’ll need to use resources like breaking a crate to make shoes to walk in the snow, eating plants and animals for food, and gathering enough wood to stay warm. Additionally, it’s important to heed Les Stroud’s advice and be mindful of your health and priorities with the tracker on your wrist. Survival is a matter of life and death.

With this adventure, it’s cold out there if you couldn’t already tell. Along the way, you will come across a backpack that will become your inventory system, so don’t forget to use it. To access the backpack, reach over your shoulder. Pick up anything that you think will be helpful in your backpack, as you never know when you may need it.

The more you progress, the more survival techniques you’ll learn based on your environment and the items in your backpack, even if that means abandoning things you believed were crucial.

Let’s talk about the graphics and sound. I found the graphics to be quite good, especially when using the PlayStation VR2 display. The sight of snow falling while walking created a feeling of isolation as if being stranded and relying on learned skills to survive. to even move down part of the mountain at some speed, you can. Some will look and say that the graphics may have that simple look about them, but it works here because it’s effective. What we have here is a game that puts in a simulation that creates an immersive world that immerses you with its details of the environment of snow and ice and seeing Les Stroud up close as a hologram of sorts, looked almost lifelike in a way.

The lifelike sound of the wind howling gave you a vivid sense of the biting cold and the pain it caused on your face. Just by listening to Les speak, it felt like he was right there with you the whole time. I liked the realistic sound effects that were used. The howling wind made me feel the biting cold and the pain it caused on my face. It added a nice touch to hear Les’ voice echo off the mountains occasionally.

There are a few things that I would love to see. First, pushing the boundaries of the PlayStation VR2. With the higher resolution of the headset, it would be interesting to see how far the graphics could be pushed. And finally, different choices. I would love to see more adventures with Les Stroud in Survivorman VR: The Descent. It would also be interesting to see how the player would survive if faced with different choices for survival, and how, if there were any injuries, could affect the outcome for survival.

Survivorman VR: The Descent isn’t trying to be something it is not. It brings the world of Survivorman into your home in new and positive ways. It offers ideas that others could benefit from by trying something different. Life presents us with daily challenges. Sometimes, failure precedes success. However, it is only when we possess the necessary skills that we can truly thrive and survive.

Survivorman VR: The Descent is out now for PlayStation VR2 on the PlayStation Store, the Quest 2, 3, and Pro on the Meta Store, and Steam VR. A review code was provided.
