Animal Force is a simple VR tower defence, suitable for those who want to approach this genre for the first time, but its party games can give everyone a lot of fun!

If you're curious to see how the tower-defense genre converts over to a virtual reality setting, Animal Force is worth the purchase.

Animal Force has a cool idea, as it introduces gamers to tower defense in 360 degrees. But its execution feels more like a tech demo than a fully fleshed-out game. A massive difficulty spike in the second world will leave many players desperate for any sense of progress, and leveling up units takes a long time when one is stuck on a particular level. A trio of local multiplayer games gives players something else to do when they're tired of the inevitable grind, at least. A bit more time spent balancing such a new form of tower defense could have gone a long way towards making Animal Force more enjoyable. At $15.99 ($12.79 for PS Plus) USD, it's not a terrible buy, but it could have been a hit with just a few more tweaks.

Animal Force perfectly shows that VR technology itself is not enough to make a game work. You have to have an idea for a gameplay which this title clearly lacks.
