We Tried The ‘Justice League’ VR Experience And It Was Awesome

Justice League VR BatmobileThe video game space is slowly entering a new realm with Virtual Reality capable machines like the Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, Samsung Gear VR and the HTC Vive. Warner Bros. has taken advantage of this trend for Justice League and in my humble opinion, they have done it masterfully.

Justice League VR takes full advantage of this technology and allows you to become some the greatest superheroes of all time. You get to chose between Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash. Picking which hero to use was a hard choice, but ultimately it came down to Batman or The Flash.

Becoming the Fastest Man Alive is cool and all, but I couldn’t decline stepping behind the wheel of the Batmobile and blowing things up, and boy did I make the right decision because it was awesome. As Batman, you drive under bridges, shoot and destroy vehicles that are chasing you or are in your way. If you ever wanted to become Batman, I believe this is the closest you’ll ever get without breaking any major laws.

With VR being a new concept, you should go into this game expecting a few glitches. I used the HTC Vive and at moments the hand set wouldn’t connect with the radar making it extremely difficult to navigate the Batmobile. But, even though it lacked in navigational control, the VR headset was pretty receptive. While the game isn’t with out its flaws, I have to say I had a great time playing it.

I didn’t get a chance to test out the rest of The League’s VR experiences, but you can check out a full game description below:

In Justice League VR: Join the League – Gillette Edition, you are BATMAN. Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Batman needs to work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against a newly awakened threat. Take part in fully immersive simulations to test the abilities of the new and improved Batmobile and of prospective league members: Wonder Woman, Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg. You can’t save the world alone.

Justice League VR is out now on mobile platforms and is available to play as long as you have a VR headset.

Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Ray Fisher as Cybor, Amber Heard as Mera, J.K. Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, Willem Dafoe as Vulko and Cieran Hinds as Steppenwolf.

The Top 10 Episodes Of ‘Justice League’

Justice LeagueWonder Woman is breaking record after record, and everyone loves it! Twitter erupted with praise for the first-ever female led super hero film. This praise bodes well for the future of the once murky DC Extended Universe. But with Wonder Woman being this successful, it means that the next film in DC’s slate has even more work cut out for it. Justice League will be the ultimate test of whether the DCEU can truly handle an ensemble super hero cast.

It’s always difficult to juggle a couple of heroes on screen, let alone six or seven. Hopefully director Zack Snyder did his research in determining how to get the formula right. Assuming he did, he almost certainly watched Cartoon Network’s Justice League. As the final series in Bruce Timm’s DC Animated Universe, Justice League brought together Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Martian Manhunter, Green Lantern and Hawkgirl for the first time on screen. The series was bold, dramatic and inventive. It placed character first, often only focusing on only 3 or 4 heroes per episode in order to give them maximum character weight.

The formula worked amazingly, giving us some of the greatest storytelling ever seen in television animation. It also led to acclaimed spin-off Justice League Unlimited, which added dozens of heroes to the roster. The spin-off series was much more serialized, improving the storytelling but losing some of the great character focus. That’s why it’s the original Justice League series that provides the best example of how to tell a story with seven DC characters. It’s the example we hope Zack Snyder looked to for inspiration.

Before we look to the future of the Justice League, let’s have a look back at the past. These are the top 10 episodes of Justice League. Click next to get started!
