Five Ways You Will Die In In Island Time VR
Island Time VR - Gameplay Trailer - PSVR, Oculus, Vive, Steam VR
Island Time VR's best attributes – the visuals and the voice acting – are unfortunately overshadowed by some very major flaws in repetitive gameplay, a very short running-time, and game-breaking bugs. If you are looking for a new friend, Carl the Crab will certainly suffice, but if you're looking for a top-notch VR survival title, we'd suggest you swimming the other way.
Island Time VR is an enjoyable and inoffensive little diversion that I spent a few fun hours with. That said, I have a hard time recommending Island Time to anyone that isn't spending an afternoon giggling with buddies. This is the sort of game that is fun to demo VR on a rainy day, providing entertainment while watching someone flail around. But unfortunately, there just isn't enough gameplay present on this tiny island to engage an experienced VR player for more than a couple of short sessions.
Much like Job Simulator, Island Time balances the ridiculous with a challenging task perfectly. Although it may get repetitive once you learn the ropes, the loop of discovering new ways to survive while dealing with whatever mishaps may occur is engaging and enjoyable. Spending time on the island with your mate Carl the Crab can be great fun in VR, just don't expect to spend a lifetime doing it.
