Journey To Foundation is an interesting ride through an alternate future of the galaxy. The story is large in scope, and every Chapter takes a fair amount of time to complete. No level goes by quickly, even with movement set to teleport. It would admittedly be a little boring if the levels go by too quickly. As the chapters in Journey Foundation are about an hour each, you’ll want to invest in a backup power supply if you want to play in one go. It is a great game with an immersive story, but you’ll want to give yourself a break occasionally. It is definitely worth a shot if you’re a fan of arcade shooters and VR shooters in general.
The 7th Guest VR is relatively short when factoring in the puzzle solutions. As it can likely be completed in one afternoon, it would take someone with an inquisitive mind no time to find every clue they possibly can. If you are a fan of mysteries and ghost stories, this title is definitely worth a look.
Hellsweeper VR is great for those already versed in virtual reality. There’s plenty to do, and there is never a shortage of demons to slice and shoot through. The ability to look at past runs and their scores gives players an incentive to pick up the controls and get back to Hellsweeper VR once more. With the addition of a co-op, players will be able to double the carnage and team up with friends to sweep through the underworld.
Behind The Frame: The Finest Scenery VR is a genuinely pleasant experience that does not need to be played in a rush. I did miss the lack of voices during the 2D sequences. But that’s likely only because I’m so used to hearing something during the cinematic points in the game.
How 2 Escape is a wild ride as far as mystery games go. Requiring the help of another person, according to L, is innovative, considering many titles in the same genre don’t do anything similar. Nothing about this game is easy, and that includes even the first car. Some of the clues are painfully obvious once they are revealed. Others, like me, may or may not find certain clues to be nothing more than reminders of what to do. If you’re a hardcore Sherlock Holmes fan, How 2 Escape is definitely up your alley.
Operation Wolf Returns: First Mission VR is not a bad game. It is above average, but just barely. With a low replay value and lack of general features, a price tag of $24.99 feels very steep. Enemy units are engaging, and boss battles are fun enough. But there are only two game modes, and one is simply exhausting. Despite aesthetically pleasing graphics and the addition of voice lines, it feels empty. And the nostalgia factor is not enough to retain fans of the original game. Fingers crossed, the developers decide to add more content after some thorough discussion.
The game is a genuinely fun experience. And like with most VR games today, it still has its share of glitches. There’s certainly frustrating but they aren’t so major that I will avoid coming back to The Signifier. As much as I gripe about the glitches, it is a genuinely good time playing. If you’re going to get into this game, you might want to dedicate a whole afternoon to playing.
Crimen – Mercenary Tales was an interesting form of VR combat. It wasn’t hard to understand what was necessary at the moment. Blocking and striking weren’t always responsive and that might be a result of the light in the room. With that being the biggest issue, it was an otherwise fantastic adventure experience. At $14.99, it certainly delivers on the things it promises.
I really wanted to enjoy Car Detailing Simulator to the fullest. While I feel like I developed a good understanding of the controls and what to do, the glitches forced me to exit and load back in a few times. It’s unfortunate because when the title did run smoothly, it was fantastic. There are a lot of ways the game can improve. As of now, the game does not feel finished, and it might not be. Their focus is likely to be on their other VR games. It is a good game if you can handle dealing with a 90% chance of running into glitches during your playthrough.
Metal Mutation is a great roguelite that does not feel too hard or too easy. Enemies come in a variety of sizes, and the bosses are as interesting as the abilities one can wield. It’s not hard to get lost in all the action going on at once. Basic attacks are made even better when the same ability is enhanced repeatedly. I recommend this title for anyone who wants actions from beginning to end when entering any level containing enemies.
Homestead Arcana is a farming simulator at heart, inspired by the myths and legends of magic. If you’re looking for a magical challenge, running through the Miasma is certain to provide that thrill. It is a cute casual adventure RPG that is sure to keep any fan of anime entertained for hours.
Despite the linear path developers went with, it does not take away from the sense of adventure within the game. It truly feels like a considerable amount of thought went into both the audio and visual aspects of the story. Some of the puzzles can be frustrating at times, but when they’re solved, it is extremely satisfying. If you’re looking for a new game completely with adventure, mystery, and crazy twists and turns, do yourself a favor and check out Call of The Sea VR.
If you’re looking for another space-themed adventure game, do yourself a favor and check out Everspace 2. Jump into a new ship as Adam, the clone pilot, and soar among the stars of cluster 34. Take on as many jobs or as few as you wish, and find a place in the ocean of stars to call home.
Hitman 3 Freelancer DLC is an excellent addition to the series. It had everything that veteran fans love about Agent 47 and his adventures. And it’s sure to be a fun ride for anyone who receives this installment as an introduction. There are a handful of achievements that are extremely easy to get, allowing a great deal of play for achievement hunters.
PathCraft is a great game overall with a few minor flaws. Other than a few minor issues, there really isn’t much that I could say was bad about the game. It can be a bit frustrating at certain times, but that’s nothing taking a breath and stepping back wouldn’t solve. If you’re a fan of puzzle games and anything that leaves one scratching their head, you should check this out.
Saturnalia is a decent game. The clue board is something that many mystery games lack, giving this title an edge over others. And not having to run back and forth to re-acquire key items or clues is wonderful. Having a good memory will help with the gameplay, as usable items get shuffled back to their points of origin. If you’re down for a mystery title that is relatively short at six total hours of game time, this might be a great title for you.
Once you begin a thread in the Wayward Strand, you may want to follow. The people who you forge connections with will rely on you. And if you’re genuinely looking for a good cry. Or you would like a game that’s got more of a story than “point and shoot”, Wayward Strand is a perfect choice to fill those spots.
Townscaper VR is one of the first sandbox titles to appear on the Oculus Store. While there could be more to it, simply being in the marketplace is one step ahead of competitors. Despite feeling like it lacked a bit of content, it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. It still gives Meta Quest 2 users a rare treat.
Dyschronia: Chronos Alternate delivers a VR experience in a way that every new player hopes a game might. There’s nothing like walking through what’s essentially a dream world and talking to others. While VR controls in general are still being worked on, this title does well to make use of everything possible.
Like No Other: The Legend of the Twin Books is a short point-and-click adventure title. Explore the abandoned town of Red Pines and interact with the few who continue to dwell there. And finally, uncover the legend that has continued to live on in Red Pines.
