Description: AGAINST is a combat rhythm VR game that will immerse you in a dark comics story. Follow the beat to shoot and slice your way through evil henchmen of Dr. Vice. Empowering music is your only way out from these crime-ridden streets.

Review: If you enjoyed playing games like Pistol Whip or other action and rhythm games ‘AGAINST’should be for you. It is certainly a good looking game with a good amount of songs and play-style to keep you amused for a wait old while.

Sadly when it comes to the all-important things don’t go so well. For a start, the beat-mapping is a little hit and miss, but it is more miss than hit. This affects the flow of the game and it just feels fake or forced into trying to fit with the music. But the beat mapping is just the start of this games issues because nothing feels finished, nothing feels quite right. The weapons don’t sit right in your hand the enemies shooting are easily missed causing you to die and the lack of beat-mapping means you will die all the time even on the easier settings. However…when it works it’s a lot of fun and there is the potential for a great game here. But I would hold off and wait for a few updates before giving this a go.
