Clumsy, superficial, and in many ways fundamentally broken, Crisis On the Planet of the Apes is an often infuriating VR game that plays like a bad arcade rail shooter from the early ‘90s. Far from reaching the artistic heights of the rebooted film series in whose world it takes place, it takes a silly, action-heavy approach to the material that doesn't respect your intelligence. It's perhaps the worst thing to happen to the Apes franchise since Mark Wahlberg saw the monkeyfied Lincoln Memorial.
It's clear that Crisis on the Planet of the Apes has a lot of ambition and it does get a lot right in this regard, but at the end of the day, all we have here is a VR tech demo. Climbing around here was the most immersive VR moment I've had to date, but the controls could sometimes took me right back out of it. As a showcase for what VR could do in the future, it's another great example of things to come.
An interesting adaptation of the Planet of the Apes franchise to VR, based in great motion controls in climbing and shooting. On the other side, adventure side is too simple, it is less than two hours long, and you won´t find many reasons to replay it.
