Oculus Rift Game Reviews – Windlands

Image Credit: https://www.oculus.com/experiences/rift/989322321141039/?locale=en_GB

Windlands for the Oculus Rift is a very strange kind of game to review. I would say that this is actually more of an “experience” than it is an actual game. Still, I love the idea behind what this game is offering and I have to say that it is one of the most relaxing and addictive games that I have messed around with on my Oculus Rift.

There is not actually a story in Windlands for Oculus Rift. You are in this strange place where an ancient civilization used to live, but that is about as much story as you are going to get. There is no major narrative, no big plot twist or anything like that. This is a game that is 100 percent all about the gameplay. I can see what they were going for here, but I do wish there was just a little bit of story to get me that little bit more invested in what I was doing.

So, what is the point of this game? Well to put it simply, getting from point A to point B is the purpose of this game. You have a nice amount of levels/areas to explore and you will be placed in a starting position and then you need to make your way to the end of the level. What is really cool about this and where the fun comes into play. Is that you are free to do this in any way that you want. So, you can take things nice and slow and go and explore these strange places and start to picture what this civilization may have been like.

While I did like doing some exploring. For me, the real joy of playing Windlands was in using the grappling hook. In many ways, this is what I imagine a Spider-Man VR game would play like. You aim your grappling hook and then shoot over to that area. Once you get the hang of the momentum system in the game, you can zip from place to place and pretty high speeds. There is a lot of trial and error in each level, where you figure out where you can go and where you cannot and that is part of the fun.

I played this using an Xbox One controller and felt that it worked very well. You walk with the analog stick. Use your grappling hook with the trigger and the A button is for jumping. The controls are very simple, so this is most certainly a game that anyone is going to be able to pick up and play. It is the kind of game where you can spend five minutes just screwing around and have a good time doing so. Or, you can fire it up with the intentions of playing for five minutes and still be playing an hour later.

I had way more fun with Windlands for the Oculus Rift than I thought I would. While you could argue there is “no point” to the game. I do feel that as an overall “experience” it is a good time. It also makes me hope that the folks behind this game can use this same game engine and make a story-driven game at some point!

Pros:

Using your grappling hook makes you feel like Spider-Man

The level designs are rather clever

The controls are super easy to learn

It is way more addictive than you would think

I liked the overall presentation

Cons:

No story to drive you forward

Price is a tad high for what it is

PlayStation VR Game Reviews – Everybody’s Golf VR

Image Credit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HR7DKPCyPi4

The Everybody’s Golf series is a staple on the PlayStation, dating all the way back to the original PlayStation in 1997! It was known as Hot Shots Golf at first here in the West, but titles such as Everybody’s Golf VR here and the last few have adopted the same name as what it is called in Japan. I am actually surprised that it took this long for this series to make the jump to the PSVR!

This is not meant to be a simulation-style golf game and I am cool with that. Everybody’s Golf VR is a game that is all about being fun and that is what the series is known for. I have had a lot of fun with this and if you want a more laid back and fun kind of golf game, Everybody’s Golf VR is going to be something ideal for you. It does not take itself seriously and neither should you! Do not go into this expecting it to replace your Sunday afternoon golfing session.

There is a nice number of courses in the game. You have four (unless there are more to unlock) and you can play 3 holes, 9 holes in and out and of course a full 18 holes. You can even play a “mirror” of the courses so this adds to the content. There is a handy practice mode where you can practice your swinging and also your putting. One of the staples of this series is unlockable things for your golfer and there are plenty of things like t-shirts, new clubs and accessories to spruce your golfer up with.

In terms of the gameplay, Everybody’s Golf VR played rather well. They say that it can be played with a Move controller or the DualShock 4 controller. I tried it with both and let me tell you, you cannot play this with a DualShock 4… technically you can, but it is one of the most awkward experiences around. I get that they were trying to make it so you did not require a Move controller to play it, but I hated it. You hold the DualShock 4 sideways and use it as a golf club! The camera really struggles to pick it up so your shots never pan out the way you want.

Thankfully, playing Everybody’s Golf VR with the Move controller works pretty darn well. You just need the one controller and you hold it like you would an actual golf club. It kind of plays like the golf game that is part of Wii Sports. It can pick up your wrists moving and while not perfect, I found the tracking to be pretty good. As this is more of an arcade-style golf game, you do forgive it when the tracking is not 100 percent.

Visually, I found the game to be very easy on the eyes. Everything is nice and colorful which the series is known for. The sense that you are “actually there” is quite well done and turning around to get a full look at your surroundings is really cool. The courses do feel pretty massive when you are standing there getting ready to tee off.

I do feel that they could have had a multiplayer mode in here! You can take turns, switching the VR headset from player to player, but that is not the most convenient thing to do now is it? Just a tad more “modes” as well I think would have really helped too. I am happy with the number of courses and holes in general for you to do, but a couple more modes I think would have been really great.

In all, I think that Everybody’s Golf VR is an excellent entry to the series. It is certainly one of, if not the most fun sports game I have played on the PlayStation VR. I do feel that this is worth checking out. Especially if you want a more fun and arcade kind of sports experiences for your PSVR.

Pros:

The game is a lot of fun

It is very easy to pick up and learn to play

It feels great when you really nail a shot

There are plenty of courses to enjoy

The game looks and sounds great even on a base PS4

Cons:

Playing with the DualShock 4 is really lame

A couple more modes would have been nice

Oculus Rift Game Reviews – Robinson: The Journey

Image Credit: https://www.oculus.com/experiences/rift/1162702973806457/?locale=en_GB

When you watch a trailer for Robinson: The Journey. It is near impossible not to be blown away and want to dive right into this alien world. It is like a movie that you are part of and for me, this is what more VR games need to be trying to do. The developer, Crytek is one of the most ambitious around when it comes to VR and the scope and ideas behind this game are huge.

Let me start by talking about the story. As a sci-fi junky, I was so in from the get-go with this the story that this game is telling. You play the role of Robin who is a young guy. You crash land on a planet called, Tyson III. This is like a prehistoric kind of planet filled with all kinds of strange and dangerous creatures and there is no other human life here. You are all alone except for your AI companion and a baby T-Rex that takes a real shine to you. You explore this strange land, trying to survive, look for a way to get off it and also uncovering why you crashed in the first place.

The gameplay is not as action packed as you would think and at first, I was a little bummed out by this. I do feel that Robinson: The Journey could have had just a tad more action in it. Still, exploring and puzzle solving is truly awesome. I found that using my controller with the Oculus Rift and this game worked very, very well. The game lets you move around in the first person, but Crytek has been very clever with this. You can snap with the right analog stick and move with the other and it works very well. You can move at a brisk pace if you are looking straight on, but you move slower if you are not. It is hard to explain, but it works very well and reduces any chance of motion sickness.

The presentation of Robinson: The Journey is amazing. I love Tyson III and would actually spend most of my time playing this just exploring, climbing up high ledges, going into dark and creepy looking areas. A lot of attention to detail is here and that really does wonders to make the whole world feel like a real living and breathing place. The different “creatures” you come across have a very dinosaur kind of feel to them and that is something I really do love. For me, I would say that Skull Island is probably the best comparison I can give to what this strange place is like.

Most of your gameplay is about exploration and basic puzzle solving. You can pick up many things and then you can throw them and use them to solve puzzles. The gameplay, in all honesty, is not doing anything that I would say is groundbreaking in the world of VR. However, it does what it does very well and thanks to the gameplay being nice and tight and there being no technical hiccups, I had a fantastic time with the game.

As far as first person adventure games go on the Oculus Rift. I would have to say that Robinson: The Journey is one of the most ambitious I have come across. Clearly, a lot of time, money and love went into this game. It is a game I had a great deal of fun with and if you want a VR experience that has some real substance to it, you have to check this game out.

Pros:

The planet, Tyson III is awesome

The story is well written and very engaging

Plenty of puzzles for you to solve

You have a baby T-Rex companion!

The presentation from the sound to the visuals is great

Cons:

A little more action would have made this a 10/10

Some still might get a bit motion sick
