Description: Arbiter is an intense, multiplayer arena shooter in VR. Blast yourself around the battle grid with an assortment of weapons in destructible environments. Each round is a new arbitration with players representing a side procedurally decided upon by the all-powerful Arbiter AI, a sentient machine unleashed on the world to solve all disputes. And The Arbiter will iteratively solve all of them… Will you fight for the side of kittens or Poland? Fuzzy slippers better than hot dogs? Soda versus Bieber?? You shall fight, and the Arbiter shall judge. All results are final.
Review: I kind of like what ‘Arbiter’ was going for. It’s a Voxel shooter in which you will be going against people online with the unique ability to shoot through the floor at someone. While a simple thing it adds a level of strategy to the classic first-person shooter genre that we have not seen before. But sadly this is still not worth downloading because of this game is as dead as they come. Without any online players and no AI-bots, all you can do is flay around the single arena on your own and they want to charge you £7.19 for that! Its just not worth it and I can’t see an update that will make it worth owning coming anytime soon.
