Top Critic Average
With a near perfect VR implementation and great presentation, Skyworld is a great experience. It has deep gameplay systems that all hinge on each other to create a layered gameplay experience that is easy and fun to play.
Vertigo has done a top job in distilling the strategy genre while making it feel like a fun and natural VR experience. It's accessible not only in its design but the way you interact with this world and its many moving pieces.
Skyworld is a somewhat charming title of two halves. On the one hand, its real-time battles for territory make for some mindless fun, but on the other its turn-based grab for resources and progress is nothing short of baffling. Along with clunky controls that frustrate all too often, you've got an experience that will struggle to please.
