Bravo Team review - an astonishingly bad VR shooter from a team that should know better

In Tumble VR and Until Dawn: Rush of Blood, Supermassive Games brought us two highlights of the PSVR's launch line-up . But that was then and this is now and Bravo Team, Supermassive's latest release, fails to impress on pretty much every level.

It comes hot on the heels of The Inpatient, another severely disappointing release from the studio in what's turned into a bit of a stinker of a run.
