Naked Sun is a fast-paced futuristic VR shooter. In the beginning of the 23rd century, humans lost the Earth. Artificial intelligence turned against its creator, and every android was updated with a new directive- to eliminate humans. Cities are abandoned, radiation levels are too high, and remaining people are slowly dying out. Some of the survivors are hiding in the Deadlands, ruins of ancient cities destroyed by past nuclear wars, and are fighting back. But the enemy is stronger, and the only way for humans to survive is to attack. Mexico City arcology, once the global capital, is the ultimate goal. Deadly machines and hostile androids protect the mainframe of a supercomputer that controls the planet. Getting back Mexico City is the only way to turn the tide of war. You are codenamed Blackbird, the first successful hybrid of a human brain and a machine. Tomorrow morning, in a desperate attempt to turn the tide of war, you will intercept a cargo train bound for Mexico City, infiltrate deep inside enemy territory and try to bring city defense systems down from the inside. Once resistance assault ships are inside, the ultimate battle for the future of humanity is set to begin.

Naked Sun VR Critic Reviews

While a solid way to ease players into VR experiences, that doesn't give Naked Sun a pass for everything. The minimalist design gives it a distinct, futuristic style but doesn't excite. There are a lot of repeated assets as well and they're certainly noticeable. I'm not particularly excited to add future Naked Sun games to my library, but I would be excited to see them in a VR arcade near you.

Priced at $15.99, but with only about 2 hours of single player gameplay (minus any score attack stuff you might tackle in the arcade mode), Naked Sun is a good, albeit short, way to ease new VR gamers into the medium.

Ultimately, Naked Sun is a good first VR effort by a small team. There is definitely a lot of potential here and a base to build on for future titles. Where it slips is simply a lack of content and imagination on the narrative front, with a lot of stereotypes employed within the setting. However, the gameplay fundamentals here are solid, with a fine shooting system and some impressive graphics. A bit more scale in terms of expanding from simply a linear on rails with only 180 degrees of movement stops Naked Sun from really excelling over some of the competition which have done this genre a bit better.

Naked Sun is a solid, affordable VR experience for those looking for a more than a tech demo.
