Description: Ahros: One Warrior Chronicle is an adventure VR-game where you shoot big guns, fly dragons and do many other things while restoring peace and order in a world destroyed by global war.
Review: Sometimes I play a VR game and have to wonder if the games developers have even tried to play the game in VR! When I play Ahros: One Warrior Chronicle I am wondering just that because this game is just about and nauseating as it comes. I would consider myself VR hardened, but even I struggle to play this. Put sort you are on a dragon and you “flap” around on missions. It’s not until the first flight that you realise this is a terrible idea for a VR game and if the “flapping” dragon wasn’t terrible enough the control scheme throws you another curveball and feels almost counterintuitive.
Sure, it looks pretty good I suppose, but there is nowhere near enough of anything to justify the £14.99 asking price. But then again even if you grab this for cheap you still have to contend with nausea and the games terrible controls. For me, this is one dragon best left on the runway.
