Time for a new installment of 15 Minutes of Game. This time around we’re looking at Blue Estate, and it’s a little more like 25 minutes though; I didn’t think the 15 minute mark was a good cut off for this particular episode, so I kept it going right up until the boss of the level and then cut it.
Blue Estate comes to us from developer Hesaw and publisher Focus Home Interactive. It hit the PS store yesterday for PS4. Blue Estate is an on-rails first person shooter based on the comic book of the same name. If I look a little slow in the video above, it’s because you don’t use the joysticks to aim in this game. This is a motion controlled game using the Dualshock 4’s gyroscope to aim, plenty of swipes of the touchpad, and only the R2 button to shoot and L2 to reload.
As you can see in the video, I also have to frequently recalibrate the crosshairs to the center of the screen since they get terribly out of whack; it’s not a big problem though as you simply hit L1 to do that.
I think the video is a good/fair showcase of the game. This is one of the later levels in the game (it’s a game you can beat in a few hours). I was playing it on normal since I’m new to it and trying to get use to physically moving the DS4 to aim. It works pretty well. I’ll have our full review of Blue Estate coming this week, probably tomorrow.
Blue Estate is available now on PS4 for $19.99. There’s a week one 20% discount for PS+ subscribers.
