DBVR is part of the Des Blood series, and is based on the first installment. The setting and the premise are the same, but there are many significant differences between the story lines, and the gameplay system is absolutely different. There are two main gameplay modes in the game. The first one is third-person shooter, somewhat similar in style to Fear Effect. The player navigates a polygonal character (there are several controllable characters in the game beside Tatsuya and Kaoru) over pre-rendered backgrounds. When approaching an enemy from a suitable angle, a red cross-hair will appear, at which point the player can shoot at the enemy to kill it. There are objects such as healing kits or keycards scattered around. There is also a map that allows the player to investigate locations in a different order.
The other mode is Illusion's trademark 3D seducing simulator. Players interact with a large 3D model of a girl by selecting an appropriate icon (touch with a hand, kiss, etc.) and a part of the girl's body or garment. Some actions can be executed in a very precise manner. For example, if one places a hand on the girl's breast, they will be able to stroke it in different directions, squeeze it, etc. Those movements are displayed on the screen as real time 3D animation.
