Eagle Flight is a satisfying experiences for the PlayStation VR at the time of launch, but despite its excellent thrills of speed, its originality and successful aesthetics, it lacks a lot in variety and depth. Would've particularly appreciate that its very multiplayer part could have more than a single mode. Nevertheless, a good demonstration of what Ubisoft could do in the future with more time on a VR platform.
Eagle Flight is a genuinely awesome game, and not just an "experience." A decent story mode with the usual collectibles (oh, Ubisoft, never change, darling) and a multiplayer portion that's proper intense makes this a viable purchase. It might seem a little light on content, but in comparison with similarly priced PSVR games, I can't really complain. With a few updates to add in a bit more content, this one could be flapping its wings for a long time.
Eagle Flight has achieved what some other VR games couldn’t, and that’s fluidness of its gameplay and experience. I didn’t experience motion sickness, fortunately. Looting for feathers and fishes can be reasons to get back into the wings of an eagle, but it’s not enough to make replayability last.
Eagle Flight has actually kept my interest for far longer than many of the other PlayStation VR titles out near launch, and this is largely due to the good mechanics the developers have put in place to encourage replayability.
A small game that shows off all the artistic talents of the team. There's a real joyfulness in the concept of flight, as enabled by VR, and Unity has never looked better; if this is a sign of things to come from that engine then we're in for some wild times as developers of all sizes start creating more VR content for it. There's a purity and innocence to Eagle Flight so completely wondrous to behold that I wish Ubisoft created more of these kinds of games.
A virtual reality game enriched with single player and multiplayer content, unlike other VR games that feel more of a short experience than a full game. Flying at high speeds and taking hard turns is exciting and fun, but it gets a bit boring when flying around normally. If you’re looking for a VR game filled with content then this is for you, otherwise you can find plenty of VR short “experiences” that are more fun to play.

The controls are tight, combat is simple, and Uplay still sucks, but this game isn't half bad.
Being able to fly in a Paris reconquered by the nature is a moving experience, not to talk about confronting three against three online in VR, which is exciting. Too bad there is not enough content to keep high the player's attention.

All in all, Eagle Flight ticks all the right boxes when it comes to VR and is available now on the Oculus Rift and will be released early November for the PlayStation VR. I’m also eager to see how this plays on the PlayStation VR so if you have some money to spend and want THAT VR game, check out Eagle Flight now as you fly high in the skies and through the amazing streets of Paris.
After the relatively disappointing launch titles for the PlayStation VR, there are a few games that will make you appreciate this new medium and thankfully one of those games is Eagle Flight. In the end, it successfully creates one of the best immersive experiences with its sturdy controls and beautiful graphics plus enjoyable gameplay. Recommended!
