I have to start this by saying that OrbusVR: Reborn on the Oculus Quest is the kind of game you will either love or hate. I really do not think there is any kind of middle ground with this game and when you look at what others are saying online that certainly appears to be the case. However, if an MMO is what you want to play on your Oculus Quest then this as of right now is your only option.

One thing that is really cool about OrbusVR: Reborn on the Oculus Quest is that if you have purchased this on another device, the game does support cross-buy so that is cool. As well as that, OrbusVR: Reborn is also a game that supports cross-play so that as well is good. I like how they are looking out for the consumer/player in that regard. With this in mind though I do feel that is what dictated the visuals of the game.

OrbusVR: Reborn on the Oculus Quest has a cell shaded kind of look to it. It is easy on the eyes and a style that I really do like. I enjoy the way that the environments look and the monsters that you come across look pretty cool too. They used this kind of style as it works across all of the Oculus platforms so everyone is going to get the same experience. My only gripe with the visuals is the characters themselves. They look like some kind of knock-off Mii from the Nintendo Wii!

You have a very decent selection of classes to play as. I went for a more melee-based class as I like that kind of combat, but there are ranged and spellcasters too that you can use if that is more your thing. One thing I will say is that the combat is very satisfying I found myself throwing hands like a madman trying to take down enemies and it was a tiring experience let me tell you that. When I was picking up loot after a battle, I more often than not really felt like I earned it!

The world is very large and there are a ton of quests for you to do. I swear I start one quest and end up down a rabbit hole three quests deep! That is not meant as a bad thing, it is all part of the MMO experience. Speaking of which you can team up with other players to do things like raids and dungeons so there is a lot to keep you busy here. I found playing with other people to be a mixed bag, but to be fair that is really the case with 99/100 MMO games I have played over the years. Word of advice, people do not want to hear you crunching Pringles when you are doing a raid with them.

The overall gameplay feels great, actually having to drop in items and mix them to make a potion is great. Actually, the overall crafting is very well done and something I usually am not into in a game like this, but here I did not mind. While I am playing as more of a brawler, I am actually thinking of starting a new game where I play as a more ranged kind of character as that does seem like a kind of easier way to get through the game. As long as my aim does not suck of course.

I do think that OrbusVR: Reborn on the Oculus Quest is a great start and I am very interested to see what they add. I feel that with just a bit more polish they really have something on their hands here. The price at around 20-30 bucks is on the high side, but you are getting a lot of game for your money with OrbusVR: Reborn. I just hope that in the next update they make the playable character designs more appealing and fitting with the game world.

Pros:

There are tons and I mean tons of quests to do

The environments look very appealing

You can do raids and loot dungeons with other players

Cross-buy!

It has cross-play so finding people to play with is easy

Cons:

The created character designs flat out suck!

It just needs a bit more story and overall polish to make it a true must buy
