Description: Chronos is a 3rd person adventure game that feels very traditional to play. In fact, fans of the Zelda games will feel right at home here. With the same “lock-on attack” and “jump-back” defence moves. But this is not the 90’s, this is the year 2016 and this is virtual reality.

Played in a hidden viewer perspective you flick between viewpoint as you go from area to area. Now this might sound a little limited and restrictive, but it works perfectly! With many different level styles and loads of characters in each level, they all feel ram packed with amazing things to see and do. While the room-to-room style of gameplay does take some getting used to (as do the combat controls) within just a few minutes you will be rolling and attacking like it was second nature.

Review: With massive levels, loads of characters and a deeply driven story, this game is good enough to sell VR systems on its own! It’s not a unique flower in a field of many, but its new angle makes it look, feel and play like a whole new gaming genre. At times, you could swear blind you are in that area with your character as some sort of guiding angel. Don’t just download this because it’s a great game (which it is) download this because it’s a showcase on how VR will change the way we play games forever. Now all we need is Square Enix to release a Lara Croft game in the same style
